Posted by: Jesse Middleton In: Event Info| Interviews and Bios

You’ve met Felicia,  the amazing writer and foodie, now meet Alyssa, our amazing past chef and future pastry-treat-maker.  She and Felicia will be guiding your night along with their culinary creations.

Alyssa Shilliday

She’s local, she’s fun and she’s going to knock your socks off with tasty food.

Alyssa Shilliday is currently enrolled in the pastry arts program at The Restaurant School to put the finishing touches on her natural culinary abilities.  Her interest in food and the restaurant industry started long ago.  Alyssa has worked on every front from catering, waitressing, and cooking to planning, managing, and purchasing.  In addition to her own independent catering of small events she has also worked for The Olive Garden, Iron Hill Brewery, World Café Live, Washington Square Restaurant, and Cuba Libré.  Her experiences at these restaurants as line cook, lead line cook, and Sous Chef have only intensified her desire to create dishes and menus of her own.

Alyssa is an alumnus of Temple University.  She and her husband Justin just bought their first home in the Fairmount section of Philadelphia in August of 2008.  Alyssa and Justin hope to soon open their own restaurant in the Philadelphia area — Keep your eyes open!!
