Chef Yolanda Chatman of the Kroger store on Cumming Highway in Sugar Hill, Georgia, began her career with the supermarket as a deli clerk. Today, as the store’s executive chef, she has been named a finalist to compete in the Food Marketing Institute’s (FMI) 2015 Supermarket Chef Showdown in Chicago.

“We’re so proud of Chef Yolanda for her accomplishment and wish her well as she proceeds to the Supermarket Chef Showdown,” says Glynn Jenkins, director of communications and public relations for Kroger’s Atlanta Division. “Chef Yolanda has exceptional culinary talents, and is a great representative of Kroger’s commitment to deliver high-quality food and service to our customers.”

Chatman is a graduate of Gwinnett Technical College and earned several promotions as she worked her way up the ranks to executive chef of the Sugar Hill Kroger. She is a member of the American Culinary Federation—Atlanta and participates in several annual events, including Taste of Atlanta and the Atlanta Foodservice Expo. Chatman also invests in her community by mentoring students who wish to develop their own culinary skills.

The Supermarket Chef Showdown, to be held June 10 during FMI’s annual conference, will bring together 15 of the nation’s top grocery store chefs to compete for the title of “Grand Champion,” with the winner taking home an all-expense-paid trip for two to the Italian Culinary Institute in Calabria, Italy.

Contenders’ dishes will be judged on taste, presentation, recipe creativity and consumer appeal.
