Jerri Fifer
Jerri opened the Frog & Owl Cafe in Highlands, NC, in 1971, introducing the area to elegant French cuisine. Her talent gained national recognition as her recipes were printed in "Gourmet," "Bon App├ętit," "Tasteful Tastings," "Southern Living," and the "New York Times." In 1992, Jerri became one of the top 25 women chefs in the U.S. with a Five Star Sensation designation. Her next venture, which she ran for many years, was the acclaimed Jer's Kitchen in Franklin, NC. In 2015, she sold the restaurant and joined On the Verandah in Highlands, NC, where she enjoys focusing on fine food.
