Heidi is the proud owner of Hook & Barrel and Croissants Bistro & Bakery in Myrtle Beach, SC. In 2017, she opened Hook & Barrel with a focus on sustainable seafood and local produce.

Inspired by the dishes from her grandmother’s kitchen in Germany, the Pennsylvania-born chef has enriched the coastal culinary scene with her love for European and Southern foods. Heidi’s contributions have earned her a place on the South Carolina Chef Ambassador roster.

The South Carolina Chef Ambassador Program is in place to elevate visitor awareness of the state’s diverse culinary talent, abundant produce and numerous tourism locales, found on and off the beaten path. The program is going into its fifth year and has a total of 21 Chef Ambassadors from all of the state’s 11 tourism regions.
