We recently acquired WarmChef.com in order to fulfill a vision that we could create a blog + store relating to coastal kitchens everywhere. Whether you own a house or condo at the beach (congrats), or you travel there regularly like we do, we think there is a slightly different vibe, look, mentality people have while near the beach. We are starting to modify the content a bit from WarmChef.com and WarmChefShop.com to match more of this mentality and there is more to come.
What is WarmChef.com?
It is really about a mentality of slowing down, taking in nature, eating a bit healthier on some days in order to eat poorly on other days. It is about eating really complex recipes on a rainy day, and finding the easiest, best recipe to make when it has rained for 2 days and you want to maximize your time in the sun. In terms of products...it is about finding great deals on products that you may have for your vacationing visitors (it will find its place in reviews on VRBO / AirBnB), and the best stuff in a closet for when you are enjoying your space yourself.
Who are we?

He lives in Smyrna, Ga., with his lovely wife Kelly and two children Beckett and Kennedy, and spends spare time searching for the perfect bourbon, losing his voice at Falcons games, and refining the art of “porch time.”
