A Maryland native, I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Baking & Pastry Arts / Business Management from The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY. Upon graduation, I traveled and worked in kitchens around the world spanning from Melbourne, Australia to New Orleans, to rural Guatemala and Washington, DC. Now settled in Asheville, I opened Ivory Road Cafe & Kitchen in August 2016 to celebrate and share my love of all things food with our community.
Over 20 immersive signature events are featured throughout the weekend! Tours, dinners, parties, foraging and more await.
This inspired, friendly and free-spirited food scene tucked in the mountains of Appalachia has been called “Foodtopia,” but the locals just call it home. Plan your trip now.
