Years of Participation

Operations Manager, Ms. Rose’s Fine Food + Cocktails. It takes humble persistence and an inspired stomach to go from a rural town outside of Cincinnati, Ohio, to an executive chef in culinary hotspot Charleston, S.C. But that’s the story of Amanee Neirouz. She came to Charleston in 2005 and was a butcher at the Sanctuary on Kiawah Island before starting at Relish Restaurant group as a part-time pastry cook in 2008. In the 15 years that she has been with the group, she has worked her way up the ranks to serve as both an Executive Chef and Executive Pastry Chef for the restaurant group. In her current role for Ms. Rose’s Fine Food and Cocktails, Amanee serves as Operations Manager. Some of Amanee’s most prized professional moments include traveling to Cortimellia, Italy, to represent America in the 2014 International Hazelnut Festival and having her smoked chocolate parfait named “Best Frozen Dessert” by Food Network Magazine in 2013.
