Today, Chef Alyssa’s Kitchen is celebrating year 9!! We began as a pop-up in the evenings inside Atherton Market in 2013. Summer Italian was one of our very first themes on this date. When we moved to our Bowers location in 2018, Summer Italian was our first public class. Also on this date.

Each year we celebrate where we are now, recognize the work it took to have this opportunity and thank you for allowing us to share our cooking and menus with you.

Tonight is a special Summer Italian cooking class that of course features local ingredients.

We are proud to be a home grown Charlotte company! Whether you’ve been to an event, ordered a meal or just waiting to do either one.. we are excited to see you!

Cheers to year 9!! Here’s to 9 more!

Cooking meals for her family as a middle-schooler set Alyssa Wilen on the path to becoming a professional chef. Now, she's the co-owner and executive chef of Chef Alyssa's kitchen, where she works alongside her husband Andrew.

The couple opened Chef Alyssa's Kitchen in 2013, and have been sharing their talents with the Charlotte community ever since. Their South End restaurant offers a variety of services -- hands-on cooking classes for adults and kids, brunch, corporate catering, and prepared meals for families. "When you have a family business, there's a 'mom-and-pop,' homey feel to it," Andrew says. "The husband-and-wife touch works well with our guests, and it carries over to our team. We love our team like family." For more about Chef Alyssa's Kitchen and other successful family-owned businesses, read our article in the latest issue of Pride: https://issuu.com/watchdog-ent./docs/pm_0722_hr/s/16219814
With your helpful donations & handy Family Meals by Chef Alyssa's Kitchen Latonya and her children have some fresh local meals to enjoy!

Today is the 37th anniversary of Kenneth Davis becoming a financial advisor! We celebrated with a client appreciation event last night—a virtual cooking class with Chef Alyssa's Kitchen. Davis & Davis Financial Partners is proud to have clients we have worked with for 30+ years. As a family business, we truly value building long-term relationships with all of our clients.
We are highlighting these wonderful businesses that donated amazing items for the silent auction at our North Carolina Top 50 Women “Super Lawyers” celebration. Because of their generosity, we were able to raise money for this incredible nonprofit, Legal Aid of North Carolina. We are so grateful. Please join us in supporting these places of business that support our local communities.

“10 years. How is that even possible? While it does feel like time has passed, 10 years is a lifetime. So much of the foundation is on her belief to make the world a better place for others. Sure, we have large missions of her in place like, save lives. Of course we try to do this every day. Today will be no different as we make another large donation of $200,000 to Levine Children's towards the program that bears her name. But one of the things she also believed in was living each day as if it were the most important day. How many times was she walking around with a vomit bucket at Disney World, learning how to swim whenever she had downtime or decorating cupcakes when she finished her treatment in New York City at Magnolia Bakery? This was her life every single day. People used to say that you would never know she had cancer, except for that beautiful bald head.

So for her 10 year anniversary passing, we are going to do all the things she loved. Actually, SHE is going to provide all the things she loved - to those in need. When I started naming things off, it just made sense. $10,000 in scholarships to everything that defined her - to be set aside for kids fighting cancer at Levine Children's who need a good day.”
