Good day everyone, my name is Ashley Reinhold, I am 22 years old, and I am an Arizona native.
I was raised in North Phoenix, I have a culinary arts degree from Johnson and Wales, and I own my own catering company.
My grandfather was a head chef for 20 years, and his father before him was a restaurant owner and chief before that in New England, so it’s always been in the family blood. I specialize in authentic German food but in my business, the customer comes first, and I still find a way to deliver what the customer wants.
What I love most about my business is I can help some create that special day for someone with food. Something that is to their specific liking, taste, texture, presentation — and Arizona is a great melting pot for that.
There are many different cultures here, so it’s an exciting challenge at times. To me, that’s what makes Arizona such a great place to live. — Ashley
