Aux Delices Foods is a place where people can come to get prepared foods from Chef Debra Ponzek. You can also get a more hands-on experience with cooking classes that teach a range of methods and meals. Aux Delices Foods cooking classes are for everyone with classes for both adults and children. One of the reasons some people don’t enjoy cooking is because they don’t know how to cook many things. However, you can increase your love of food with Aux Delices Foods. Classes are not only available in our kitchens, but we can also even schedule private lessons as well.
