TASIA MALAKASIS
Owner and President of Belle Chevre



Tasia Malakasis is owner and president of Belle Chevre, an award-winning cheese producer located in Elkmont, Alabama, and author of the cookbook Tasia's Table. Tasia's passion for food was born from the kitchens of her southern grandmother, whose love was shown, felt, and tasted from the riches of a big pot of chicken 'n dumplins. She learned early that food was love. Later in life, as a teenager when Tasia visited her father in Greece during the summer, she learned there that the bounty of the table was just as rich and as deep in how families and friends shared love. Being rooted deeply in the Southern and the Greek cultures formed a magical link to food and the allure of the table that Tasia could not shake.
