Chef Alyssa’s Kitchen

Alyssa Gorelick and Andrew Wilen met in Charlotte in Fall 2011. Thinking about the needs of Charlotte, Alyssa and Andrew decided to collaborate their skills as a chef and event planner/marketer respectively. So the pair decided to do what all young, newly dating couples usually do – start their own company. The company’s mission is to provide a comfortable and social environment that will allow guests to enhance their skills for those who love to cook and eat well.
They believe everyone wants to cook more and live healthier. All of their classes are designed to be fun and informative. With these thoughts in mind, Chef Alyssa’s Kitchen is a true representation of both their passions. In just a few short years, Chef Alyssa's Kitchen has received local and national recognition. Best Cooking Class in Charlotte by Charlotte Magazine in 2015 and 2016. Ranked as one of the top 9 Cooking Classes in the United States by Tripping.com.
