Debbie has a cooking school- Central Coast Culinary and Catering since 1999. The school offers adult and children's cooking classes, and serves as the commercial kitchen for DELICIOUS by Debbie Duggan Catering. Located in San Luis Obispo (SLO), on the central coast of California. 
DELICIOUS by Debbie Duggan catering prices are competitive and we are NOT a cookie cutter caterer! Debbie will meet with clients and put a custom menu together. The cuisine is California eclectic and uses a lot of organic, farm to table produce. The cooking school sells the catering and the catering sells the cooking school.
