And we “revere” Chef Holly for her lifetime achievements, which we believe are merely a prologue of even more great things to come!


She was the Executive Chef at the Georgia Governor’s Mansion for six administrations. While at the Governor’s Mansion, Chef Holly was named a Georgia Grown Executive Chef in 2012, the program’s inaugural year (photo).

Chef Holly holds a degree from the Culinary Institute of America and also is a member of Les Dames d’Escoffier International-Atlanta Chapter.


That’s the tip of the iceberg when it comes to what she has accomplished and who Chef Holly really is. If you’ve not met her, when you do you will adore her ever-present smile, warm up to her kind heart and admire her professional demeanor.


Chef Holly Chute is truly remarkable and we’re a fan!
