Who is The Urban Gastronome?

Hello my name is Jeremy Hood, otherwise known as The Urban Gastronome. I am a  Event Planner, Social Media Influencer, Mixologist, and local Brand Ambassador for hire. I work and live in Asheville, North Carolina where I am immersed in the food and beverage community. I also contribute to the Asheville Food News for Asheville's cocktail and bar scene analysis through our documentary “In the Mix with The Urban Gastronome”, focusing on cocktails created with locally sourced ingredients.  Additionally, I write the column "This Guy Walks into a Bar", for the DigLocal newsletter, featuring Asheville's local mixologists.

Skillset...

Ability to look at the big picture, a keen eye for the unique, and undying devotion for creating memorable experiences. I exhibit an innate ability to adapt to your brand, message and love for your product and/or event. More importantly, I know how to represent your product effectively. Driving results in your targeted market.

Passion...

As a cocktail nerd and alchemist of spirits. I soak up mixology knowledge like a sponge. I get goosebumps planning events because I see my clientele’s excitement through the end product. I am also blessed to have the love and support of my best friend, my wife, who fuels my passion by fanning the flames.
