Chef Asha Gomez
Asha Gomez is owner of Spice to Table in Atlanta, GA, where she currently resides. In 2013, her restaurant Cardamom Hill received a James Beard Award nomination for Best New Restaurant. Asha was born in Kerala, the southwestern-most state of India. The area’s unique and multilayered culture, a result of its vital position on the ancient spice routes between Europe and Asia, provides much of the inspiration for Asha’s enterprises. Her Kerala fried chicken has been a draw at the Atlanta Food & Wine Festival and won the People’s Choice award at the city’s first annual Mother Clucker Fried Chicken Festival. Recently, Asha also created a “culinary conversation” event studio called The Third Space in Atlanta. Asha’s first cookbook entitled My Two Souths, was recently released.
