Katie Button

Cúrate and Nightbell, Asheville, NC

2018 JBF Award nominee and JBF Chefs Boot Camp alum Katie Button honed her craft under luminaries José Andrés and Ferran Adriá before going on to open her own spots in Asheville, North Carolina. At Cúrate, the Food & Wine Best New Chef serves traditional Spanish tapas, whereas at Nightbell she focuses on local Appalachian ingredients and craft cocktails, both yielding delicious results.
