Maola Partners with Milk-Loving Renowned Chef

Maola is partnering with renowned Chef Lee Gregory. Chef Gregory is a James Beard Foundation Best Chef Semi-Finalist and the owner of Southbound and Alewife, two popular restaurants in Richmond, Virginia.

At Southbound, the menu focuses on locally-sourced ingredients for their hearty, upscale dishes, offering a variety of brunch menu items, fresh pasta, and dessert dishes using milk. At seafood restaurant Alewife, the menu also includes grits and dessert dishes made with milk. “At the restaurant we make ice cream every day and we use milk in lots of our recipes,” said Chef Gregory.

Outside of professional cooking, the chef is passionate about “living the dad life.” He drinks a ton of milk with his two kids. “We make smoothies after school, it’s a quick easy go-to for nutrients and the kids love it,” he said, and added “I’m a big late-night bowl-of-cereal-guy at home, and I put milk in my coffee.”

As our partner, Chef Gregory will create custom recipes, videos, and social posts for the Maola brand. These recipes and videos will be launched on the Maola website and YouTube channel in the coming weeks.
