Angela Schmidt

Another outtake from the current Birmingham Magazine. Above is Angela Schmidt who is a local private chef who runs a company called Chef U. Chef U started when Angela quit cooking for restaurants and moved into her own and it's been described as one part catering company, one part catering school, and one part party entertainment. We met the lovely home of one of her clients to photograph for this story and really had a blast, and really, I'd bet that happens a lot. Angela was fun, her client was fun, and clearly her food keeps her busy...sounds like a win-win-win to me.
