Damaris Phillips from Louisville, Ky., graduated from Jefferson Community and Technical College with a degree in Culinary Arts and still teaches at the same school inspiring up-and-coming chefs to follow their dreams. Before returning to teach, Damaris took on various restaurant and baking jobs, working in the front and back of house. One of five kids, Damaris learned to cook at an early age and was responsible for cooking one night a week for her large family. She competed on and won season nine of Food Network Star, and her modern twist on Southern classics and her signature wit pack a one-two punch in the kitchen.
