Chef Kacia Stuart at Sourwood Inn

Chef Kacia Stuart

We welcomed Chef Kacia as our Executive Chef in the year of 2000. Over the many years she has become an important part of the inn family. She shares her love of food and the table with all of her guests. We just love her food! Kacia is a graduate of New England Culinary Institute. After graduating, she spent three years in Portland, Oregon at two of Portland’s finest restaurants, Atwaters and Higgins.

She then became the Executive Chef at the Steamboat Inn in southern Oregon, which is internationally known for Steelhead fishing. Her culinary adventures then took her to the southwest of France where she was the private chef on an exclusive barge. While there she and the owner operated a cooking school and conducted gastronomic tours through France and Spain.

She has used her extensive travels and cooking experience to create her own style of “southern cooking with a French flair.” Her passion for sustainable food provides the best and freshest local product available. Kacia wants you to experience her food as if you were dining at her home.
