Chef de Cuisine Elinn Hesse

Elinn's affection for cooking stems from her family. "They love to eat almost as much as they love to cook" she says, "I decided in 6th grade to be a chef and have never looked back." What excites her most about cooking/working in a kitchen, is the freedom to imagine something, create it, and then eat it. Elinn chose the Bardo team for the opportunity to work with and learn from Chef Mike. Because ultimately, "Being Chef de Cuisine gives me the chance to bring new things to the culinary world in Charlotte that they have never seen...and that’s pretty badass."
