Philadelphia, PA - Most recently, Caroline Hough was the Chef de Cuisine at Porta, where she recently hosted and cooked for the James Beard Taste America: Philadelphia event.
Hough is from West Chester, PA, and attended to George Washington University for a BA in Art History and later went on to the Art Institute of Philadelphia for Culinary School.
Hough likes to cook, especially at home. "I spent most of my career cooking Italian food, and it has a special place in her heart. Making pasta is my zen space, so making empanadas has become my new favorite thing to do. I am so excited to be changing cuisines and really delving into the wealth of flavors and techniques that Mexican cuisine boasts. But my favorite thing in the world to make (and eat) is Wonton soup.", Hough said,
When asked about her personal favorite dishes on the menu, she said, "I love Chilaquiles, and am excited to introduce more people to my favorite dish. I am also excited about the possibilities that the Huaraches and Sopes will bring to the menu. They are delicious vessels through which we can serve amazing local and seasonal flavors."
"I am excited to be cooking Mexican food and using the knowledge I have garnered from years in this industry working with amazing and talented people. I want Sueno to be known for delicious food that respects Mexican cuisine's great history while bringing my own personality to the menu. I love cooking with fresh and local ingredients, and I want this menu to meld my bright, fresh flavors with classic Mexican dishes." Sueno, Hough said
Recently, Hough and Craft Concepts Group had worked together in the past through collaborations and neighborhood events. When the opportunity arose, Hough submitted her resume, and she is thrilled to be part of the new team.
