Chef Crystal Ashby

Chef Cryss (Crystal Ashby) is the co-owner and chef of Crystal’s Comfort Food LLC located in Lansdowne Pa. Her introduction to the world of culinary arts began at the age of 14 when she began cooking holiday dinners for her family. With no formal culinary training, she fine-tuned her skills from watching family members cook during the holidays and from trying recipes she’d find online.

Although she specializes in different comfort foods, she has been coined the “queen of wings” because of her lengthy menu of signature wing sauces. Her unique cooking style and creative menu brings customers from miles away. She has been featured on local news and radio stations and just competed on the Food Network’s “Great Food Truck Race” set to air in the Spring of 2020.

Chef Cryss and her husband started their catering business in 2016 and opened their restaurant just one year after. Chef Cryss not only runs her family business, but is a military wife of 10 years and the mother of four boys ages 9, 6, 3 and 7 months. She plans to open several restaurants, expand her sauce line, and eventually have a product from her Crystal’s Comfort food brand in every aisle of the grocery store.
