Cooking with Addie

Learn to throw an incredible luncheon with Addie Gundry


Grab your friends and join us for a special afternoon with Food Network Star finalist and Cutthroat Kitchen Champion, ADDIE GUNDRY.

During this special cooking demonstration, you’ll learn how to throw a luncheon like a pro! Enjoy a light lunch as you learn all about Addie’s recipes, and catch a glimpse behind the scenes from her career at Martha Stewart Living and as a competitor on some of the nation’s top reality TV cooking shows. You will leave with fabulous recipes to enjoy and tips and tricks to make sure your luncheon is a success.

Addie received her masters in culinary arts at Auguste Escoffier in Avignon, France. She has worked alongside masters such as Daniel Boulud, Thomas Keller, and Martha Stewart.  In 2015, she won Alton Brown’s Cutthroat Kitchen and she was a finalist on The Food Network Star in 2017. She excels at easy, elegant entertaining, and we are bringing her to Gorton to share that with you!
