About the Speakers


Steve LaRosa

Steve LaRosa is an award winning chef and entrepreneur who has been working in the Pittsburgh area as a chef since 2010. Since then, he has worked various chef jobs in the area including working as a chef trainer teaching people with barriers to employment how to cook for a local nonprofit, and currently working at Pittsburgh's hottest new restaurant, Carmella's Plates and Pints in the Southside. He is also working on a project to build Pittsburgh's first major food truck commissary with hopes of being up and running within the year.


Jaime Matters: Greenfield Gardens

Greenfield Gardens is a local small business offering unique seedling plants for home gardeners in the Spring and a variety of canned vegetables throughout the year. With all ingredients sourced locally from natural growers, the plants and products are always natural and chemical-free. Female entrepreneur, Jaime Matters began the project in 2011 and is looking to expand production and amp up exposure in 2015 with more local farming partnerships and extended grocery store availability. Greenfield Gardens is a healthy obsession for growing and canning that is striving to transform into one woman's career, and hopefully, a Pittsburgh favorite!


Jasmine Cho: Yummyholic

Jasmine Cho launched Yummyholic as a way to blend her passions for pastry, art, and raising awareness on Asian American culture. Yummyholic initially started with foodie-themed shirt designs and then introduced the “nomicake” – a soaked cupcake flavored with different Asian drink concoctions. Jasmine went on to gain funding as a dreamer with Dream Cream Ice Cream and win an Awesome Pittsburgh grant that enabled her to host “Cupcakes & Culture” events in the city. Jasmine hopes to revive Yummyholic’s endeavors in the New Year with a completed menu and more events that bring the community together.
