Meet Chef Ashley

Food has always been an integral part of Ashley Sias’s life. Growing up in an extended Italian-American family in Miami, Florida, some of her fondest memories revolve around Sunday dinners at her beloved grandmother’s house. There, her grandma taught her the art of making homemade pasta and sauce, and her family gathered weekly to break bread and enjoy a meal.

In 2017 and 2018, Ashley was invited to be a participating chef in the South Beach Wine and Food Festival where she served thousands of guests alongside the best chefs in the industry. A few of her prior roles include, Taproom/Kitchen Manager at Big Storm Brewery, Clubhouse and Café Manager as well as Head Chef at the Twisted Sprocket Café in Land O Lakes, Fl. and previous that she spearheaded both restaurant and corporate accounts for Share Our Strength in Washington D.C.. There she helped raise $22M through restaurant activations and assisted the organization in its’ signature Dine Out for No Kid Hungry campaign. Behind the scenes, Ashley also assisted Food Network chefs and Share Our Strength spokesmen, Marc Murphy and Duff Goldman with demonstrations at the National Restaurant Association’s Culinary Showcase in Chicago on behalf of the organization.
