Join Black Restaurant Week for a exclusive dinner featuring Chef Mark Holley and South African Award winning Winemaker Ntsiki Biyela. Guests will enjoy four courses paired with wine and a special art gallery by the Gite Gallery.
ABOUT CHEF HOLLEY:
While growing up in Dayton, Ohio, Chef Mark Holley developed his passion for cooking after spending time with his Mom learning recipes that have been passed down through generations. This passion, along with resilience and determination, ultimately led him to the South in 1983 where he strengthens his skills in Southern cooking. He was an opportunist who took chances to work with well-established Chefs in renowned places like Commander’s Palace in New Orleans, Brennan’s of Houston, and eventually becoming the Executive Chef at Pesce in 2000. After more than 30 years in the industry, and gaining recognition for his talents, Chef Holley decided it was time to open a restaurant to call his own. In 2014, Holley’s Seafood Restaurant and Oyster bar was born with influences of Southern foods, family roots, and warm hospitality.
ABOUT NTSIKI BIYELA:
Ntsiki Biyela, owner of Aslina Wines has been featured in Forbes, Business Insider, and the New York Times. Biyela grew up in a rural village in the KwaZulu-Natal province, but her life changed when she won a scholarship to the winemaking program at Stellenbosch University. By 2003 she was working as an assistant winemaker at Stellekaya winery; soon after that she became the family-owned company’s head winemaker, and her wines began winning international awards; and in 2009 she was named South Africa’s Woman Winemaker of the Year.
