HEAD COOK: Ashley Mincey

COMPETITION: World Sandwich Championship

Miami Southern classics with worldly inspirations is my style of cooking. Miami is home to so many cultures that I've learned from and that I know about; it also has an edgier presence than just classic (US) Southern food. While teaching at IMG Academy, I've been competing since 2015 but because I've been cooking since I was little, it didn't take that long to realize I was exactly where I was supposed to be and the results supported that idea. I love working with our exotic and Citrus fruits, with latin & Caribbean spices, and classic Miami flavorings like mojo. Living abroad in Tours, France for a year was incredible and left quite an impression on my palate. My host mother had her own gardens, and the flavor in the end product is really significantly determined by the freshness of ones ingredients. Something you can only learn through experience.
