Scott Preston Smith
Scott Preston Smith was born in Birmingham,
Alabama. Being raised as a true Southerner
and inspired by his grandmother, Scott
developed a passion for cooking at an early
age. Venturing out and gaining extensive
experience in both French and Italian kitchens,
Scott keeps returning to his heritage and passion, "where the air is as warm as the people
and the food is as essential to family
gatherings as butter is to cornbread."
