About This Class

Make Fried Chicken tonight!

Learn how to recreate a truly authentic & famous Southern dish from start to finish! You will learn from my southern roots & my having grown up eating fried chicken at least once a week, as well as my experience today as a private chef. This class will change how you entertain at home!

Areas covered will include:

  • Main Dish: make a perfectly crispy, yet juicy fried chicken (spicy optional)
  • Savory Side: make tender, fluffy buttermilk biscuits


You will leave this class with the knowledge and necessary skills to easily recreate your own Southern inspired meal, as well as new flavor inspiration from the other students! And pretty soon your friends will be telling you they “love you like biscuits & gravy!” 

This class is solely taught online and is composed of 2 roughly 20 min instructional cooking videos encompassing all dishes as outlined above. Resources will be provided for each of the 2 modules/projects that include recipes, tips/techniques, grocery/equipment lists and approximate grocery costs.

“Kelly is a great teacher and I had so much fun learning to make fried chicken while sipping on champagne. Kelly is extremely knowledgeable and thoroughly explained everything we would ever need to know about making fried chicken. The class was very hands-on. And to top it off, the fried chicken was delicious. Seriously the best fried chicken I've ever had. I can't wait to make a batch at home!” -Amy Shu

“I can make great fried chicken! I learned so much from this cooking class. Kelly is a great teacher and she has amazing tidbits of knowledge that will be useful for many different dishes. I also love that she explains the reasons behind what she is doing. I really learned a lot and got to eat some delicious fried chicken.” -Jessie Startup

“What a fun and informative class, with an absolutely fantastic teacher. We definitely got our hands dirty (in a good way!), had a ton of laughs, and feasted on the crispiest, savoriest, fingerlickin'-est fried chicken ever to grace the five boroughs. Kelly was great at explaining things clearly and showing us how to work out the inevitable little kinks that pop up along the way. Plus, she sent us home with awesome written instructions, and a jar of her own house blend spice so I'm confident I can re-create the magic in my own kitchen. Fabulous!” -Katie Sullivan

This class includes 2 separate modules:

  • Southern Fried Chicken (spicy optional)
  • Buttermilk Biscuits

Students are provided with the recipes and instructions for how to recreate each of the dishes in the comfort of their own homes. For each dish, students will have the opportunity to follow recipes exactly as they are taught/outlined, but are highly encouraged to experiment with their own flavor/spice preferences and combinations to truly "make it their own" southern inspired meal.

Each student is encouraged to submit photos/descriptions of each of their completed dishes and share their creative spin with other students. This is how we teach each other and stay inspired in the kitchen!
