Meet Chef Virginia Miller
I’m a classically trained chef, born and raised in North Carolina. During my summers as an undergrad at the UNCW, I worked in an oceanfront resort on Wrightsville Beach. It was there I discovered my love for the hospitality industry and grew to know that attending culinary school would be my next big adventure…so I headed to Johnson & Wales University in Denver, CO. Learning classical French culinary techniques helped me discover my passion for food and nutrition. After graduation, I returned to North Carolina to apply my knowledge and skills in an a variety of restaurant kitchens, including fine dining, bakeries, and event catering. My husband and I later moved to the Outer Banks, and ran a small B&B on Hatteras Island. Our commitment to ensuring our guests’ received the best experience was honored by the TripAdvisor Excellence award for five consecutive years. I emphasize local, organic ingredients in all my menus and focus on the small details that make an ordinary meal extraordinary. It’s my pleasure to share a table with you.
We believe in the art of gathering. We recognize food is highly personal. And that you want to impress your guests with inspiring dishes made from fresh, honest ingredients that taste good. And you’re not willing to compromise on the details. You also recognize it’s the table where memories are made. More than recounting the day’s events, forging a special partnership, or celebrating the milestones of life, food brings us together to share special experiences. At Modern Coastal Cookery, we cook meals for the moments that matter.
Want to improve your skills in the kitchen? We now offer cooking classes suited for all age ranges and skill levels. Parent & me classes will be held for pre-k chef’s and their adult to learn fun new snack time recipes. Kid’s only classes (age 5-7; 8-12; 13-17) focus on basic kitchen sanitation, fundamental knife skills, baking principles, and nutrition. Adult classes will concentrate on regional cuisines from all over the world. As well as specific classes on homemade pasta, baking essentials, and sauces. We are so excited to cook with YOU!
