In Demand: The Reinvention of Chef Ellen English

My culinary journey is a testament to my genuine passion and unwavering dedication to the art of cooking. Starting as a chef at Trillium House, one of the South’s most celebrated culinary inns, I honed my skills in the heart of a bustling kitchen, infusing every dish with my unique creativity and love for food. Over time, my commitment to transforming simple ingredients into culinary delights gained recognition from both regulars and out-of-towners. As my reputation grew, I found myself at the crossroads of opportunity, transitioning seamlessly from inn chef to the maestro behind catering special events. Today, I bring my culinary finesse to the spotlight, curating unforgettable dining experiences for special occasions, celebrations, and more.
