A Flint native and Flint Central High School graduate, Chef Talicia Campbell has always aspired to share her talents with her community and the world. A graduate of Genesee Area Skill Center's Culinary Arts Program, Chef Telly has the heartbeat of Flint at the core of her business. Her first recipe was homemade cast iron skillet cornbread. After successfully catering her own high school graduation party, she knew that cooking was more than just a talent. Desiring to stay closer to home, she turned down a scholarship to attend Johnson & Wales University for culinary arts. Chef Telly opted for Grand Valley State University where she studied Hospitality & Tourism Management for two years. Continuing her education through Mott Community College's Culinary Arts Program, Chef Telly knew that she wanted to be an entrepreneur.
