Meet Our Special Guest

La Tasha McCutchen

             aka "Chef Tasha Mac"

Chef

Winner of Hell's Kitchen
Season 13

The 39 yr old Lake City, SC native former head chef of Gordon Ramsay's Pub and Grill in Atlantic City, New Jersey is currently Executive Chef and Owner of her own Private Chef catering business, "Entertaining with Chef Tasha Mac" and currently resides in Charlotte, NC.  La Tasha also recently joined the team at Northeastern Technical College in Cheraw, SC as their new Culinary Academic Program Director.  In this new role Chef La Tasha will develop and design a culinary program that offers culinary accreditations for all high schools in the county, as well as, develop a curriculum for culinary, baking and pastry certificate programs.

In 2015, she started a non-profit organization named "Baby Cakes Foundation" in memory of her late Grandmother Thelma McCutchen.  It aims to create education assistance scholarships for under privileged teens, who inspire to be leaders, and trendsetters in their communities.  "Baby Cakes" soul mission is to unselfishly give to others as her late grandmother, Thelma McCutchen, always did, as the gift of giving is far greater than any gift received.
