Welcome back Chef Rashanna Newsome, Sous Chef of The Manship Wood Fired Kitchen, located at 1200 North State St. in Jackson. We cannot wait to see what she cooks up at the 2018 Bash.
Chef Rashanna was inspired by her parents and their love of cooking. Rashanna originally planned to study computer in college, but was urged by her parents to attend culinary school. Prior to her father’s death in 2006, he informed her of his dream for her to get a culinary education. She fulfilled this dream by attending the Washburne Culinary Institute in Chicago from 2007 to 2008. She returned to Jackson, working at Macaroni Grill, then River Hill Country Club, and then her current venue, The Manship. During her time at The Manship, Rashanna returned to Chicago to finish her semester of culinary school. She came back and began training as the Sous Chef.
