  • 2. Courtney Renn exceeds any expectation of what most people think a chef should be or could be. As one of Atlanta’s best kept secrets, Chef Courtney is a talented and passionate culinary professional with a firm belief in customizing menus so she can creatively utilize natural and organic ingredients to satisfy any palate. By combining an innovative approach with a vast food knowledge honed at the Art Institute of Atlanta – Chef Courtney successfully combines her roots in Southern cooking from North Carolina with her love of diverse flavor profiles. Chef Courtney’s unique approach to food presents her discerning clients with more options than most. When asked what her signature dishes are, she will quickly reply that there are many, as almost all of her dishes are signature; one of the many reasons she enjoys customizing menus, versus having standard fare. “I want to have more than one thing that I can do and do very well.” If she’s not in the kitchen, you will most likely find this down to earth chef playing with her dogs, listening to music from almost any and every genre or quite naturally – thumbing through a cookbook. Chef Courtney has an impressive resume and her expertise includes consulting, customized menus, eco-friendly cooking with natural and organic ingredients, catering for small and large events, personal chef services and demonstrations. She also has a strong desire to continue advancing her level of community involvement and philanthropy, as well as being a positive role model and mentor to young female chefs and cooks.
