Chef Alyssa's Kitchen

  • Food, Kids & Family

Essential Information

2104 South Blvd.
Charlotte, NC


Not all millennials are simply taking pictures of restaurant food and posting them on Instagram. Two of them, Chef Alyssa Gorelick and her business partner (and soon-to-be-husband), Andrew Wilen, make it possible to post great shots of food you’ve actually made. Located inside Atherton Market, Chef Alyssa’s Kitchen offers classes on healthy cooking, Southern favorites, basic knife skills, and, new this year, a three-night workshop for beginners.

Send your kids to Chef Alyssa’s day camps, and little chefs will be making your dinner in no time. The future culinary stars will use only local, organic ingredients to create healthy dishes. Bonus: Parents are invited to do a tasting on the last day of class. Sessions are held in Atherton Mill from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on weekdays from June through August.
