When other kids in her Charleston neighborhood were eating hotdogs, Madeline Lytton and her sister were eating artichokes, thanks to a Mom trained in classical French cuisine.
That early introduction to fresh, beautifully prepared food led Madeline to Europe where she fell in love with the simple, healthy beauty of the Mediterranean palate of Spain, Italy, and France.
In 2004, she attended the Cordon Bleu Program at the California Culinary Academy in San Francisco. During an apprenticeship at Alice Waters’ legendary Chez Panisse in Berkeley, California, she gained a true understanding of the difference that local, organic and sustainably grown food makes – in cooking and the larger community.
In 2009, Madeline returned to her Lowcountry roots, her husband and two young daughters by her side. Since then, she’s been making fresh, simply delicious food from locally sourced ingredients for locals and visitors alike. She also throws amazing parties.
