Chef Onique Oliver is no stranger to high-profile clientele. She catered a meal for Mariah Carey’s wedding party in the ’90s (Michael Jackson was in attendance), prepared a meal for the 50th anniversary of a prominent New York senator, and once held the post of Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce’s signature caterer. But at Shepsmeri's Kitchen, her clientele consists solely of students. Through private and public cooking classes, she introduces her pupils to seasonally inspired dishes packed with local ingredients. The classes welcome both master chefs and first-time cooks.
