Brunch will be enjoyed by all as Executive Pastry Chef Jessica McKinney from Canoe brings her vanilla inspired fare to the Outdoor Kitchen.  Relax and enjoy a nice noontime meal and mimosa while learning about delicious treats made from the edible orchid.

Chef Jessica McKinney’s passion for the culinary arts began at an early age, having been raised by chef parents and spending much of her time with her siblings in and out of restaurant kitchens. Originally from Pittsburgh, PA Jessica graduated from Le Cordon Bleu in 2012. She took her talents to the Four Seasons Atlanta, rising to become the Pastry Chef de Partie, and then went on to serve as the Executive Pastry Chef at Druid Hills Golf Club. As Executive Pastry Chef at Canoe, Jessica incorporates her passion for chocolate confections and affinity for boozy desserts with creations like a reimaged smoky s’mores and pretzel dusted chocolate grotto.
