From 7 PM – 8 PM EST on Chef Elliott’s “Entertaining Solutions”, SRN radio show by calling 347-989-8385 or at www.chefelliottentsol.info
Chef Elliott is honored to share the technical skills and culinary wisdom of his friend and colleague, Chef Kevin Ashford.
Chef Kevin M. Ashford, Founder and Director of Product Development for Catered Cakes, considers himself to be a huge “foodie” and spends countless hours developing concepts, flavors and product ideas. When asked where the interest in food developed, Kevin recalls that both of his parents are excellent cooks so it just rubbed off. Perhaps exposure to the family’s grocery business, working in a college cafeteria and the love of good tasting food were also instrumental in shaping his affinity for the culinary arts.
A native of New Orleans, LA and resident of Atlanta, GA, Chef Kevin enjoys the use of fresh ingredients and partaking in local and international cuisines. He also looks for ways to vary food through the use of additional or different ingredients, oftentimes creating a different product. The same principle helped to spur such an array of desserts at Catered Cakes. Some of the company’s signature desserts include the award-winning New Orleans Style Bread Pudding with a Bourbon-Rum Sauce, Tropical Carrot Cake, Chocolate Mousse Torte and the Island Breeze Cheesecake which was featured in the June 2003 and 2003 Year End issues of Southern Living Magazine.
Chef Kevin has been featured in a number of publications including Southern Living Magazine, Rolling Out Urban Style Weekly, The Atlanta-Journal Constitution, The Chicago Sun-Times and popular book Real Men Cook: Rites, Rituals, and Recipes for Living. He has appeared on several Atlanta televisions stations including WSB’s People to People, Fox 5’s Good Day Atlanta, The WB, and also Food Network’s Roker on the Road just name a few.
Currently serving as the Spokesperson for Real Men Cook – Atlanta, Chef Kevin has been instrumental in encouraging and featuring local male chefs and young male chefs at the organization’s yearly fundraising event in an effort to bring awareness to the positive role of males in the community and family through food, fun and fellowship.
