Who is The Urban Gastronome?

Hello my name is Jeremy Hood, otherwise known as The Urban Gastronome. I am a  Social Media Influencer, Brand Ambassador and Event Promoter 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 Network  through our documentary “In the Mix with The Urban Gastronome”, focusing on cocktails created with locally sourced ingredients.  Additionally, I write the column "Drink This...with The Urban Gastronome", for the DigLocal newsletter, featuring Asheville's craft beverage industry.

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 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.
