Get to know me better
Always experimenting and creating
I am a self taught professional chef. I have been cooking for 7 years in Athens, Ga, Pensacola, Fl, and now the fabulous Twin Cities. I have specialized training in baking and pastries, but am fortunate to have been cross-trained on savory as well. I lean towards a type of refined southern style cooking, with French influence. I don’t stay confined to that style, I love trying new recipes, regional cuisine or creating recipes that cater to a guests needs and preferences. I’m never happier than when I’m in the kitchen sharing things that I love.
For me, cooking is...
Cooking is a way of life, it’s a creative outlet for me that I get to share with other people. Cooking and baking encompass my entire heart.
I learned to cook at...
I learned to cook from my mentor at a country club in Georgia and have made some big strides that led me the twin cities as an executive pastry chef
A role model in the kitchen is...
Iliana Regan of Elizabeth restaurant in Chicago. Her attention to detail and fun twists are inspirational.
A cooking secret...
A secret that I go by is listening to my gut, it’s a great way to learn - by trial and error - but also learning to trust yourself and your ideas

Corey did really a great job. Communicating with her about the menu was very easy; she was very punctual, friendly and the dishes were very good. We were very happy with the overall service!

Corey was beyond wonderful and we can't thank her enough for such a wonderful experience! She was such a pleasure to work with and very communicative throughout the process. We were celebrating our 10 year anniversary and have a little one at home whose schedule is unpredictable. She was beyond understanding and made us feel at ease. Since we had our experience during the pandemic, we can't thank her enough for being so cautious of our comfort level and we were happy to respect hers as well. She even made us some bonus scones for the next morning and they were AMAZING along with everything else she made. Everything was simply fantastic!
