Chef Cassy Vires, Executive Chef & Owner, Home Wine Kitchen
Chef Cassy received her culinary training in Houston, Texas, at the Art Institute. There she gained an appreciation of American cuisine as a true melting pot of cultures, traditions, ingredients, and techniques. Since then, she has put her talent to work as a chef, instructor, and food writer. During her time at the Viking Cooking School, she was able to expand her technical knowledge while also finding a way to adapt classic techniques to the home cook. Since then, she has been teaching regular cooking classes at Vom Fass, Dierbergs, Clayton Farmer’s Market, and Kitchen Conservatory and has used the same philosophy as a monthly award-winning columnist for Feast Magazine, for which she was nominated for a James Beard Award. She has also been named one of America’s “Eight Chefs with Hidden Talents” by Zagat and nominated for the “People’s Choice Best New Chef” by Food & Wine Magazine. Her knack for recreating dishes people know and love comes across on her ever-changing menu as she re-imagines American classics.
