About us

Passion

Passion. Vasiliki’s passion behind the grill started at a young age. She would sit on a bar stool in the corner of the kitchen and watch the pit-master with intent as he pulled brisket out of the smoker. At home, she would play pit-master and run her own show. Her interest turned to action at 12 years old when she asked if my dad could teach her his craft. Her training required long-hours, unforgiving discipline, and a steady hand during the chaos of a busy night. Most kids her age would have caved under the pressure, but her passion kept her composed. After years of shadowing the pit-master, her passion and skill around barbecue now rivals my dad’s. She handles school in the morning and the smoker in the evening and hopes to soon attend the Culinary Institute of America.

 

Integrity

My name is Christiana, I studied food science at Cornell University to combine my love of food and my commitment to safety. Unlike Vasiliki, I worked the front of the house. Through working, I developed deep relationships with our customers and I always felt responsible for not only our customers’ satisfaction, but also their safety. This interest pushed me to graduate from Cornell’s premier food science program that taught me about the science that keeps consumers safe. My experience in the restaurant and my background in food science gives our business a unique edge in product safety: no short-cuts in quality or safety.  

Food tastes better with family.
