About the Aisle Mine staff:
Adrian Sullivan- Virtual Chef for the day
As a diversity champion who has been cooking from a young age, I’ve learned the ability food has to bring people together and explore new cultures. He believes that food, like any art form, has the ability to open minds, spark exchanges of ideas, and build bonds. That’s what his food is all about, a little of this from part of my culture, and a little of that from another part, with pieces picked up along the way from relationships. A good recipe does more than provide a meal. It can tell you more about a person, a place, a legacy than words ever will, if you let it.” - Adrian Sullivan
For these ideals, Adrian has been recognized as a 2020 Next Up Columbus Award recipient for his work in diversity and inclusion through food. As a food blogger, Chef and recipe creator Adrian has used his platform (www.sulliskitchen.com) to create recipes that spark variation and new ideas. Adrian also leverages his platform to highlight the diverse food scene in Columbus Ohio and beyond. “From the age of 11, my mother instilled in me the value of cooking from the heart. From his kitchen to yours, we’ll build something incredible and unique based on the simple things around us all the time. Let’s cook!”
