Growing up in Charleston in a Greek family, delicious food has always been a priority to chef Jennifer Banis. During her work experience in high-end restaurants in Charleston, San Francisco and Portland, Jennifer worked in both the front of the house as server, dining room manager and events planner, and in the back of the house as line cook and garde manger. After graduating from the College of Charleston with a bachelor’s degree in Sociology and later attending the Atlantic Culinary Academy, Jennifer honed in her passion for cooking to catering/events planning.
