KENDRICK MILLS | Chef
Hometown: New Orleans, Louisiana
Most memorable CulinAero event: I had a request for all pink food for an American Cancer Society event.
Favorite CulinAero dishes or desserts: Caprese Salad fresh basil and balsamic reduction and pan-seared red snapper with Mediterranean couscous.
At home, I like to cook: I love cooking with fresh herbs from my garden. Soups are my favorite. My new passion is fresh brewed Thai Basil and Lemongrass Tea - also from my garden.
Must-see Atlanta site or location: Atlanta State Farmerís Market and the National Archives at Atlanta.
If I was an event planner: Try to get an idea of what type of experience the client wants their guests to have. Sharing that with the culinary staff allows us to find creative ways through the palate and senses to evoke the feeling they want to convey.
