Atlanta Dining Podcasts: Top Women Chefs

It’s Women’s History Month thus your infallible restaurant whisperer is going to feature some of the best female chefs and restaurant owners in metro. We start out with the personable Soroya Khoury from Hen Mother Cookhouse. The Napa Valley trained chef has built up an enormous following. Likewise, Jasmine Willis Slewitzke of Gracious Plenty gained years of experience with Ford Fry’s restaurants before turning Canton Street head over heels in love. 

Nooshin Yazdani of Noosh Kitchen earned a loyal following before expanding the restaurant and menu, transitioning to a more formal atmosphere. Nahm Thongyoung, chef/owner at Nahm Fine Thai Cuisine was a soothsayer, among the first to open top-shelf cuisine in what once was a chain of fools. Sripapa Oyanturak of M Thai Street Food has a fancier menu and creature comforts than “street food” might imply. 

Cakes by Darcy has a very loyal following purely by word of mouth. Who does better cupcakes? Not sure anyone. Two other young ladies also put out tasty and beautiful cakes, but also excel on the savory side. Safoora Kamali of Swan Café and Liud De Jesus Lopez, Liud’s Cuban Bakery & Café are two small, but outstanding sweet and savory places. Belen de la Cruz of Empanadas & Pastries is getting noticed by big media. Not sure if her small eatery qualifies as “hidden” anymore, but it’s still a gem.  

Briana Carson has two locations of Crave Pie in both Parson’s Alley and Alpharetta City Center. Arpena Satyu-Burge of Dutch Monkey Donuts brought great food to an area that is developing into the next great restaurant town. Michelle Liu and Karen Wang of Mama’s Kitchen gets some more love from us. 

Some key sous chefs at elite restaurants deserving of a mention are Jess Libatore, Sous Chef at Table and Main and Laura Orellana, Executive Sous Chef at Osteria Mattone
