For this week's , meet Mallory Grimm, C'15.
While at Sewanee, Mallory majored in Environmental Arts and Humanities, and played on the Lacrosse team. She spent her summers cooking in Cape Cod and in Wyoming at , where she eventually served as Head Chef for a few years.
When the pandemic began in March 2020, Mallory had just finished working at a restaurant and was eager to start something of her own. Her company, , was born out of a passion for local food and a need for a creative outlet.
"I started by cooking for friends, moving on to catering small events and selling at the East Nashville Farmers Market. I grew along the way, cooking at Bloomsbury Farm and doing more and more events. The amazing group of local farmers, producers, fellow market vendors made me feel supported and gave me a sense of community in Nashville. 2 years later, I have moved to Sewanee and am building my business on the mountain! I have loved getting involved with the South Cumberland Farmers Market, meeting farmers on the plateau and building community here. I hope to be able to foster connections and bring more local food to studentS, alums, and visitors."
If you are interested in pursuing a career as a chef or a farmer or just want to learn more about Mallory's story, check out her website henofthewoodstn.com and get in touch today!
