Chef Ayo Cherry

"Being from the south, I love southern food. One day, to my chagrin, I was taken to a French restaurant. Reluctantly I looked over the menu and with the help of a few others I made my selection. In that moment my life was changed for the better. I discovered a whole new cuisine I didn’t know I would love. This discovery lead to interest in French culture and eventually ended with me going to a French culinary school. From something as simple as ordering coq au vin I became encouraged to learn more about the world, to travel, and lead a more enriched life. That moment is what I want to share with people. A transformative experience that centers around food."
