In 2011, Alyssa Wilen (né Gorelick) and her boyfriend (now husband and business partner) Andrew saw a gap in the market in terms of fun, friendly and hands on cooking classes. Alyssa, who had a degree in the culinary arts, began talking to Andrew, who had a background in business, marketing and events, about how they could fill that gap. Slowly, through meticulous research and building piece-by-piece, they developed their plan.
Fast forward to today, and Chef Alyssa's classes cover a wide variety of cooking styles and uses, sell out in minutes, and bring a lot of excitement and energy to their home in Atherton Mill Market.
In this episode of Piece of the Pai, Alyssa and Andrew talk about their individual backgrounds and how Chef Alyssa's Kitchen got started, share some fun and interesting stories from their classes, the challenges of working together as a married couple and business partners, and even share some exciting news about their upcoming expansion.
