Melissa is a plant-based personal chef in Los Angeles, CA. She's originally from Milwaukee, WI (yes, she's a Packers fan), and has been plant-based since 2005. She is a graduate of UW-Milwaukee with a degree in clinical lab sciences, received her plant-based chef certification from Rouxbe online culinary school, and received a certificate in plant-based nutrition through T. Colin Campbell and eCornell.
Melissa loves cooking for people and the kitchen is definitely her happy place! She provides weekly meals, caters small brunches or dinners at clients' homes, or at rentals i.e. Airbnb, and offers virtual and in-person cooking classes just to name a few things. She is very passionate about nutrition and wellness. She never uses fake meats, refined sugars or vegetable/seed oils (unless you request products with these), only uses non-toxic cookware, and composts all of her food scraps, keeping her work as low waste as possible. She'd love to work with you, so feel free to reach out to discuss your needs!

I scheduled a Mexican Vegan Cooking Class with Melissa Glazewski through the Delightful Table as part of my birthday celebration weekend. Melissa is a wonderful instructor and hostess - we received incredible instruction as well as tips and tricks on using a kitchen chef's knife. The food was all organic and the menu was awesome. We made pico de gallo, vegan queso, HOMEMADE TORTILLAS, and walnut "meat". The sense of community Melissa is able to create through her lessons with Delightful Table is an experience I will not forget. I will definitely return for more courses and plant based cooking recipes. You can BYOB, make sure to have containers for leftovers (I will be able to eat my pico all week, thank you very much) and be prepared to stand. Bon Appetite!
