Travis discovered his culinary passion while working on his undergraduate degree at the University of Texas: he would cook for friends and family during UT’s legendary football tailgate parties, and found that he was able to articulate his appreciation to the ones he loved through food.
Travis quickly turned his newly found passion into a career and started working in catering while finishing his degree. Upon graduation, Travis moved from Austin to upstate New York to study at the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park. After completing his studies, Travis continued his education by taking an internship at Jonathan Waxman’s famed and beloved restaurant, Barbuto, in NYC. Under Waxman’s mentorship at Barbuto, Travis worked his way through all of the stations of the kitchen until being promoted to chef. Throughout his years at Barbuto, Travis has been able to travel the world cooking and exploring cuisines with Waxman. In spring 2015, Travis moved to Nashville as executive chef/partner at Adele’s.
Drawing from her upbringing in Houston and San Antonio, Kim has worked in the hospitality and customer service industries since the age of 16. She has done everything from hosting, serving, bartending, training, sales and managing. Kim spent 5 years working in the Food & Beverage Department at two different Marriott hotels, which is where she really began to understand how to succeed in the industry. In 2013, Kim moved to Nashville and became general manager at a local pub in town. Shortly after, however, she found a home at Adele’s and took on the role as the Catering and Events Director. Her current position combines the best parts of all her former positions and she really enjoys working with such a great team.
