Hands-on cooking classes with Lisa Mays!

My diverse background This crazy, wonderful mixture of Sicilian, Louisiana Cajun and Mississippi Delta taught me to live my life out loud.  My love for food and wine has been an integral part of my life from the beginning. I am thrilled to be able to share my expression of culturally diverse cuisine that is a part of my life and heritage.

I will be teaching many globally-inspired cuisines!

I will be teaching Rustic Italian, Cajun, Creole, Greek, Moroccan, Middle Eastern and Mediterranean inspired dishes, I will also teach paella classes of all types of paella:  Paella Negro, Seafoods, Roasted Meats, Vegetable and Rabbit Paella as well as many paellas inspired by local ingredients.

Low Carb and Delicious: Get Creative!  Gourmet and Bistro Cuisine all based on my low-carb recipes.You will dine in style and never miss the carb!
