Meet The Chef

Meet the chefs that will be participating at this year’s Good Taste Atlanta. Stay tuned for a new chef highlight every week leading up to the event.

About the Chef:

Chef Cory is originally from Duluth, GA. I didn’t do much cooking in my early days. I got into the restaurant industry at Jim ‘N Nick’s while I was finishing my degree in Information Technology after I got out of the military. From there, my passion grew and I began to climb the ladder and have been with JNN for nearly 5 1/2 years!

Culinary Background/Training:
BBQ / Southern Heritage

Favorite Culinary Memory:
Cooking my first whole hog - the prepping, seasoning, smoking, the whole process is awesome!

What I’ll be Tasting at Good Taste Atlanta:
Loaded Mac & Cheese w/ pulled Pork

Fun Fact:
I am a veteran - I was a Master-at arms, anti-terrorism force protection

On MY Bucket List:
Visit Thailand, feed an elephant!

About the Restaurant:
At Jim ‘N Nick’s Bar-B-Q everything is scratch-made. Yes, everything. From our Bar-B-Q, that is slow-smoked for up to 14 hours to our flour-and-rolling-pin fresh pies you can taste the tradition in every bite. Join us for dine-In, drive-thru, take-home, private dining or catering.
