Kerry Brodie dreamed of Emma’s Torch long before it became a reality. Cooking has always been her passion: at the age of five, she started training under the watchful eyes of her grandmother, a former caterer and event planner.
Working in media - as the global press secretary for the Human Rights Campaign and the director of communications at the Israeli Embassy - the daily headlines about the refugee crisis screamed in her face. The time to act is now, she decided.
Kerry is a graduate of the Institute of Culinary Education, where she won the Wusthof Award for Leadership and was named ACCSC Graduate of the Year. She holds a master’s degree in government from Johns Hopkins University and a bachelor’s in Near Eastern Studies from Princeton University. She was named one of City & State’s 40 Under 40 in 2018.
