Chef Elliott Farmer
Having grown up in a home over-filled with love and family, in the inner city of Atlanta, GA, Chef Elliott Farmer has always felt most at home in the kitchen. For him, it has always been a place that represented passion, creative freedom and family. It was a must if he wanted to eat, and eat good. That is when his love affair with food started and has since developed into a lifestyle.
During his formative years, he was introduced to cooking by his aunt and was instinctively trained by three chefs, simultaneously, to develop his style, technique and natural preparation of southern cuisine. He developed his signature style, by modeling his “old-school” upbringing with his semi-formal training to create flavorful, hearty and comforting food with an infusion of multiple cultures. A designation that earned him his credibility in the culinary industry.
He has grown a beloved fan base of chefs, cooks and foodies, through sharing his food creations via his cook books, Entertaining Solutions and Soulstice Recipes, his online radio show, Chef Elliott’s Entertaining Solutions and as a Food Network contestant on Cutthroat Kitchen Contestant for two seasons. He was recently selected as a High-profile Chef for an Atlanta-based, television series on Food Network, the pilot production launches this Fall.
Reflecting on his accomplishments, he considers himself blessed to have work alongside some of this generation’s most well respected chefs, as well as his appearances and participation in Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, The Country Living Fair, Atlanta, Georgia, Taste of the Runway NYC, Atlantic City’s Wine and Food Festival, Definitely Divorcing Movie taping and Real Housewives of Atlanta Show taping.
Chef Elliott has the pleasure of being an Ambassador for a luxury spirit brand, Martell Cognac Brand and his charitable partner, Feeding America’s Hungry Children. In the midst of his rising fame, he continues to provide culinary consultancy for various brands and restaurants, nationwide. He also offers personal chef placement and craft services for movie, television and theatre productions and is privileged to call himself personal chef to his celebrity friends and professional athletes.
Though Chef Elliott tours and travels all around the world, he never ceases to engage in opportunities to help others. He is also a retired registered nurse, practicing ordained minister, recognized gospel vocalist and is in the process of completing his PhD in Industrial/Organizational Psychology. He resides in Atlanta, Georgia.
