Chef Kelly Burton, Culinary Instructor comes from a family of cooks. Her sisters are professional chefs, her mother was a private caterer and her father is a home bbq'er. After graduating from University of Illinois with a degree in Economics, Kelly decided on a post graduate path at Kendall Culinary School. After Kendall, Kelly honed her skills in fine dining restaurants around Chicago until a move to Greensboro, NC, landed her in a teaching position. Kelly taught culinary for 6 years in Greensboro until her sister asked her to move to New Mexico to open a restaurant. After eight years in the restaurant business and two award winning restaurants under her belt, Kelly left her sister in charge and returned to North Carolina to continue her passion of teaching people to cook. She then took a sabbatical for two years traveling Southeast Asia and attending cooking classes and market tours. She has now returned to her passion with a new portfolio of experience under her belt.
