Event Chef

Woolery "Woody" Back

Chef de Cuisine

With a culinary style influenced by his Kentucky roots, Back began his hospitality industry career in the front of the house at a few small places around New York. Eventually, his place moved to the kitchen where he honed his interest in cooking. A move to Virginia to attend Johnson & Wales University earned him a degree in culinary arts, solidifying his career choice.

Sous chef positions at spots such as Havana and Mahi Mahs fueled his love for cooking, but it wasn't until he was named chef de cuisine at Coastal Grill that he fell in love with Southern cuisine in particular. As such, he moved further south and served as sous chef with the famed Tom Collicco at Craft. Upon Craft's closing, he met chef Linton Hopkins who led him to Holeman and Finch and his most recent position as executive sous chef at Restaurant Eugene. After four years with chef Linton, he is eager to take his friendships with farmers and responsible sourcing to Roswell, Ga. at Table & Main.
