Ashley Mincey earned her apron from Chef Gordon Ramsay in Season 9 of the Masterchef competition. She ended the season as a Top 3 Finalist and was commended by the judges for her knowledge, creativity, and ability to handle pressure. Chef Ramsay even said she accomplished the best dessert of the competition! Now, she is adding the allure of Miami’s international scene through her culinary point of view. She’s able to transport her audience to a destination with her flare, world travels, passion, and personality. Take a culinary adventure with her on the Kroger Cooking Stage Friday and Sunday.

What's for Dinner?

Beef is a great source of 10 essential nutrients that support a heart-healthy lifestyle including protein, zinc, iron and B vitamins. Beef helps to provide our bodies with the strength to thrive and grow throughout all the stages of life. Join Karman Meyer, Registered Dietician, on the Kroger Cooking Stage as she shares tips on how to enjoy Tennessee beef on a Mediterranean diet.


Areeda’s passion for carrying on the tradition of southern foods heightened when she realized her favorite dessert, Fried Peach Pie, was going “extinct” from family reunions. She carefully tweaked an old family recipe to create her award-winning pie, which won Best of Show at the 2007 Tennessee State Fair. Watch her demonstrate this famous recpipe on the Kroger Cooking Stage and snag one of her cookbooks for your collection.
