Ashton Keefe is a chef, on-air culinary instructor and food stylist.
With a focus on beautiful and seasonal food, Ashton encourages food enthusiasts of her generation to embrace the practice of everyday cooking and celebrations.
Ashton’s girl-next-door charm is best represented in her collaboration with lifestyle brands emerging into the hospitality space such as Whispering Angel, Instagram, Fab Fit Fun, Tuckernuck and Equinox.
As how all good things begin in New York, with luck and cocktails, Ashton met Ali Cayne, the owner of Haven’s Kitchen, at a party she attended with her first boss, the legendary NYMag Food Critic, Gael Green. In 2010, she then became part of the opening team at Haven’s Kitchen, a Manhattan-based event space and cooking school, where she was recognized in The New York Times and Food & Wine Magazine.
Naturally building her client list through the high-end shoots happening at Haven’s, Ashton transitioned into food styling working for celebrities such as Giada De Laurentiis, Tom Colicchio, Harry Connick Jr., Kelly Clarkson and brands such as Chobani Yogurt, Panera Bread and Pyrex.
It was only natural and a matter of time, since the art of gab and teaching come naturally, that Ashton transitioned from being a member of NBC’s Today Show food styling team, into a reappearing on-air talent. She appears regularly on NBC, Fox News and CNN.
