We are thrilled to host Chef Emily at this year’s Conference.
Her story is one that all personal chefs can relate to and one that we
know will inspire our attendees to take their businesses to the next level.
- Larry Lynch, president of the United States Personal Chef Association
Emily Ellyn was a refreshing addition to Wine & Food Week!
She makes cooking fun again and we couldn't wait to
enjoy the food frenzy she brings to the table, so to speak.
- Constance McDerby, Woodlands Wine and Food Week
If there's such a thing as a culinary crush,
mine would be on Emily. She is not only talented,
smart, entertaining and crazy cool, but she makes
cooking more fun than anyone I know.
I can't wait to see her retro rad genius in
full display again on our Final Table!"
- Mike McCloud, CEO of World Food Championships.
Emily Ellyn was entertaining and delightful. Her tips and
suggestions for using what you already have, and cooking simply,
were refreshing! The dishes she made seemed like they were so easy,
but the result was gorgeous, sumptuous food. I loved how much fun
she was having cooking! That was inspiring.
- Debora, Rolling Pin Kitchen Emporium
To say Emily added some energy to the Expo is an understatement!
Her vivacious personality and Retro Rad persona had Expo attendees
smiling from ear to ear. Reactions to her appearance were priceless.
Emily has gained a cult following among Food Network viewers,
and attendees squealed with delight at the opportunity
to chat and take photos with her.
Emily’s Retro Rad look included her trademark cat-eye glasses,
colorful 50′s style clamdiggers and a kitschy rubber chicken purse.
Her female fans were in awe of her style while some of her male
followers were a bit google-eyed by her adorableness.
What makes a chef a television-worthy star? It’s not just their great
culinary skills and know-how in the kitchen. There is a inborn charisma
that takes these chefs to the next level as Emily demonstrated with her
natural ebullience and friendliness. She has the “It Factor”!
- Heidi Alberti, Easy Ice
As high as my expectations were, they were topped when Ellyn
took the stage for a demonstration on how to make jam. She quickly
encountered audio issues, with a microphone that functioned only sporadically.
Even with the mic, it was difficult to hear her over the buzz of hundreds
of people enjoying their food and wine.
Undaunted, Ellyn tried to shout over the din of the room. When that
didn’t work, she came down off the stage and got as close as she could to the audience,
describing the steps to make a strawberry jam that started with a full bottle of red wine.
It was then that I really perked up and paid attention.
Afterward, she apologized for the audio issues and offered to do a personal
demo on stage for anyone who was interested. I know how to take
advantage of an opportunity. Moments later, my husband and I were on
stage with a few other daring souls watching as she boiled jelly jars,
coached us on the ins and outs of canning and thoughtfully answered our questions.
At the end, she gave my husband and me a big hug but stopped us before
we exited the stage. “Would you like to take this home?” she asked,
quickly sealing one of the jelly jars and handing it to my husband.
We ate it the next morning for Sunday brunch, enjoying every hospitable bite.
