Meet Jessica – “I grew up a farmer’s daughter in Blenheim, South Carolina, most famously known for its super hot Ginger Ale. In Charleston, SC, I catered and taught cooking classes in a specialty cooking store before making a move last year to D.C. My meals highlight my love of Southern traditions and local ingredients. I really love sweet corn, okra, peaches and bourbon – though not necessarily in that order. But most of all, I love sharing a meal with friends and family and now, Feasters!”
