Chef Kisha Moore
Welcome back to the EATYALL Podcast! This week, Andy sits down with Pastry Chef Kisha Moore from Hummingbird Macarons in Norfolk, Virginia. Chef Kisha is a solopreneur, head chef and team builder extraordinaire. We’ll gain culinary insight as she talks with Andy about honey, toasted almonds, walnuts, pecans and elderflower mousseline!

She’s been nationally recognized as a “Top Female Leader Making Moves in the Southeast” by Ladders!
We also gain insight to her business practices, including her annual budget for ingredients, devastating losses in business and explains how to navigate business ups and downs, and we’ll also hear what she thought of her tour of Richland’s Dairy Farm when she closed down her shop for an entire day to bring her entire team out to the farm.
