what's this all about?
My name is Dalia David. I am a New York City Celebrity Chef & Cooking Instructor.
I create virtual cooking experiences for companies + their teams to energize their culture!
These sessions build community and cultural humility over a 1 hour session, teams enjoy a nice meal together afterwards.
My culinary training comes from the Natural Gourmet Institute and studied Plant Nutrition at Cornell University.
I honed my skills in NYC restaurant kitchens; Jean Georges' Spice Market, Pure Food & Wine, the James Beard Foundation, and as a Catering Chef for Linkedin HQ feeding 400 ppl daily.
Teaching is my passion, cooking is my livelihood.
Here to share it with you so that we can support each other.

what makes chef dalia different
Dalia genuinely likes people and is great on camera.
She is 100% fully on board to create a tailored virtual event based on your needs & has no ego in changing her cooking menu to fit the goals of your team.
A cooking session with Dalia is extremely interactive in approach and gets people out of their silos and into the conversation while making a delicious meal. The group banter is natural & highly engaging. She calls each person by name.
