About Kelley Chisholm

I love food. I love trying new restaurants, recipes and wines, especially with family and friends. I love cookbooks and food magazines, grocery and specialty food stores, kitchen gadgets and cooking shows. The goal of my blog is to introduce you to some of my favorites and learn about some of yours in return.

Professionally, I am an editor and writer, and have published a number of articles on management, leadership and talent development topics in a variety of national trade publications. I hold a Master’s Degree in Training and Development from NCSU and have extensive experience in instructional design and organizational development.

In what seems like a long-ago, previous life, I bartended, waitressed and cooked (in addition to working in various libraries) to help put myself through grad school.  So maybe I know just enough to make myself a bit dangerous when it comes to being in the kitchen and behind a bar. I’ll leave that up to those I cook and serve as well as anyone who tries my recipes.

All in all, I think writing about food just comes naturally and I hope you will enjoy my blog, comment often and share your own culinary experiences!

Eat, drink and be merry!

    Hey Kelly! I’ve really been enjoying reading through your Restaurant reviews and I love the way you structure your “best of” lists.

    My team and I are working on a company in Raleigh called Offline. Our mission is to inspire people to get the most out of their city by trying new things and having new experiences.

    As a local foodie expert, I’d love to buy you coffee / lunch and pick your brain about some of the food experiences you’ve had around here.

    Hope to hear from you soon!
