JACLYN SCANLAN aka “HUNGRY JAX”:
LEEANNE HOUSE aka “CHEF HOUSE”:
Chef House or “The Sriracha Mamma” is all about the heat. Lover of all things spicy she is constantly in the kitchen coming up with fun new ways to whip up veggies and add a little spice. She is a Dayton native, with lifelong experience in the restaurant industry, working with some of the best chefs in the Miami Valley. She loves to keep it local especially in the summer when beautiful produce is plentiful. She is a true foodie who knows we have a lot to offer in Ohio! LeeAnne is also the owner of Housemade Sauces which specializes in a locally made Sriracha Sauce and a Hot Honey Sriracha Sauce, which have won national awards. Chef House is also the owner of the new “Bad Dog” Hot Dog Cart which features local dogs, local toppings and local buns! She is also involved in putting on the “Night Market” events at the Yellow Cab Building. She is definitely a foodie fixture around town, and an up and coming Chef.
STEVE MILANO aka “THE BIG RAGU”:
A lifelong Dayton resident, his early food influence was in his mom’s kitchen and his dad’s grill. Other incredible food memories are his grandparents’ Italian and German/Scottish cooking. Ragu’s love of food is only matched by his love of sports, travel, karaoke and just needing to be held. An attention seeking missile, Ragu’s favorite foods include Seafood, Italian Food, and Chinese/Japanese cuisine. Other hobbies include overeating and a slight attraction to deep fried menu items. Whether a locally owned business, fine dining, a dive, buffets, fast foods and even a few chain favorites, he enjoys visiting them all with a “no rules” attitude. You can usually recognize him at festivals by the sweaty guy with the food stain on his shirt. Emotionally eating his way through life with the Crew, they leave no plate unturned. Most recently, his recipes have been featured in the monthly Foremost Seafood Newsletter. This “foodie in his forties” is proud to be involved in dozens of local charity committees.
We hope to meet you at our Dorothy Lane Market Party Foods Class, where we will be cooking up a storm. Seats are limited, get yours before we sellout. Learn some new recipes,taste some fantastic party eats, and go on a full blown Food Adventure !
