As a New Orleans native and the granddaughter of strawberry farmers, Chef Amanda Lee was raised in food culture. When she grew up, she only had one passion, so she trained at the renowned Le Cordon Bleu Culinary School in Boston.
Amanda continued her career by working as head chef for Kombu Kitchen, award-winning vegan cuisine. When she moved to Nashville, she started baking and decorating specialty cakes for Nashville's famous clientele with the Frosted Affair, a bakery shop.
Amanda has extensive catering experience. Her favorite pastime is creating a beautiful atmosphere to serve exquisite, approachable foods.
She is happy to handle the entire event—from flower arrangements and table settings, to cocktail development, cooking, plating and servings.
"We planned a small, intimate wedding and didn’t have the budget for a traditional wedding cake. Amanda helped us come up with a creative, stunning alternative that not only impressed our guests, but fit our budget. She made boozy banana pudding, white cake with multi colored frosting, layered in mason jars, and salted chocolate ganache cake with bourbon caramel drizzle. Wow!"

"Chef Amanda is a one of a kind gem, encompassing way more than just her insanely talented skills in the kitchen. She is your concierge for the perfectly set up home-away-from-Home and can help with the smallest details to make a huge impact for the best experience. I have seen her work twice now, and can only wish I had her in every city I visited or every party I planned. Did I mention her cakes? Not only are the delicious (most importantly of course) but they are true works of art. If it’s simply water at tablebedside or a five course meal, she will plan and facilitate it all. She gets 12 out of 10 stars from me!"

"Amanda is absolutely incredible. Literally the girl can do it all! Cook, decorate, emboss, paint, design, she is the whole package in one. Every single meal I have had prepared by Amanda I can still tell you about in detail. Her flavors are over the top, and her presentation is second to none. Amanda takes care of every detail from start to finish, making sure your event is perfect. For my bachelorette in Nashville we hired her to prepare appetizers for the weekend, as well as cater a meal for 10 Saturday night. She was the best part of the weekend. Prior to our arrival she checked into our rental house and surprised us with classy, beautiful decorations. As each girl arrived we were greeted by hand painted, custom glasses as well as trays of delicious food. The meal she catered for us the following night was 4 courses of pure bliss. She was so incredible in fact, we hired her to cater the bridesmaid bunch and make our wedding cake a few months later!!! I cannot say enough good things about Amanda and the incredible culinary experience she provides!"

"We hired Amanda to cater my birthday. She made filet minon, alfredo with truffle, roasted broccolini—all of my favorite foods! It was the best steak I've ever had. She also brought a cheese selection and plated everything beautifully. I could not have been happier!"
