Courtnee

As an Atlanta native, Southern hospitality was the first "golden rule" I learned... Hostess like you'd want to be hosted. I've been baking and cooking competitively & in business since I was 16 years old. I've also been working full time in the food industry for the last four years. With my bakery ThunderCakes, I've catered over 100 events, written nearly 200 recipes, and baked more than 150,000 cupcakes. With my 2-year-old catering service, The Spred, I host bi-weekly dinner parties bubbling over Southern fusion and quirky themes!  After finishing my MS in Business, I trained at the Escoffier School of Culinary Arts to further enhance my food knowledge and techniques. My style of cuisine is Southern fusion meets urban wanderlust. Each menu is stacked with sultry sips , savory bites and remixed classics. Can't wait to meet y'all!
