Kelly Spencer


I grew up in Birmingham, Alabama and began cooking with my southern grandmothers at a young age, learning that cooking goes hand in hand with gathering people together to either to prepare the meal or eat the food.

Originally on a career path in sales and marketing, I couldn't ignore my culinary roots and made my first foray into the industry by founding the Chicago Butter Factory in 2001.

After moving to St Louis in 2004, I began formal study of the art of food preparation and earned a degree in Culinary Arts. I founded The Social Affair in August 2009 and today am more passionate than ever about delivering sophisticated food presented in a unique way and bringing people together to create lasting memories.
