Unfortunately, the retail shop & cooking school on Amherst Street is permanently closed but I'm happy to announce that I am still offering cooking classes, cooking parties and full service catering in people’s homes! I am also introducing Personal Chef services, Food Coaching & Consultations and Event Planning.

I'm wildly excited about this new chapter for Delish and I look forward to hearing from you. For information on any of our new products or to plan an event, contact me at DelishBlackRock@gmail.com

Cooking Classes...

Delish is "Hitting the Road"....straight to your house!
We are now doing all of our COOKING CLASSES and hands-on COOKING PARTIES in your home.

Do you need a little assistance in the kitchen? Take a class and learn a few new tricks, techniques, and recipes that will be just what you need to make healthful cooking an everyday part of your life. My classes are geared toward the home cook who enjoys playing with food at any skill level. Whether you are looking to learn a few new recipes for yourself or looking for a few easy ideas for your family dinners, I will teach as well as inspire you to create exciting new dishes with ease. I strive to make cooking fun and easy with our quick tips and advice that will stay with you forever!

As the creator and original Chef instructor of Delish Cooking School I have taught in a variety of venues, but I believe that the best learning experience comes from using your own knives, counter-tops and equipment, so you'll be able to execute these new recipes again and again.

You pick the day, you pick the time and the friends you'd like to invite. Together we'll decide on the theme and cuisine then I'll bring everything we need to have a super fun event in the comfort of your own home. If you are interested in learning a particular skill, just let me know, I'll work it into your class.

What you're getting:
Classes are between 1 ½ and 2 ½ hours, depending on the menu, during which time we will prepare 3-4 dishes- start to finish. All menus are custom designed to suit your tastes, skills, and kitchen equipment.

Pricing:
Class costs include all fresh ingredients, but not basic pantry items. If your menu choices require specialty ingredients beyond the scope of the average recipe, supplemental fees may apply. Class options are also available for larger parties.
Party size:
1-6 guests (demonstration or hands-on) $275 + cost of groceries
7-12 guests (demonstration or hands-on, if you have the room to accommodate) $325 + cost of groceries

Menus:
Classes are tailored to individual tastes and instructional needs. Each guest will receive customized copies of the recipes to take home with them.

Location:
Classes can be held in any kitchen in the city of Buffalo proper and surrounding suburbs. No kitchen is too small to teach in, but also be prepared to use tabletops in living or dining areas as extra class space if needed.

Payment Details and Travel Expenses:
When confirming and booking the date, I will need 50% of the chef’s fee. This is a non-refundable deposit to hold that date for you. Final number of participants is to be confirmed 7 days before your event date. Balance of chefs fee and cost of groceries is to be paid at the end of your event. I will have all food receipts for you at that time. Payments are to be made with cash or personal check, no credit cards accepted. 
We'll go anywhere to throw a great party but traveling to any location 15 miles or more from the Buffalo city proper will be charged for travel time at $20 per hour to cover time & fuel expenses. This applies to any service offered.

My cooking parties and classes are perfect gifts for couples or families and ideal for your foodie friends that love to throw a great party!
