Delia Montgomery, d/b/a Chic Eco, is a seasoned event coordinator from Kentucky with a competent and unique culinary background. Her learning bible has been Joy of Cooking. Interest began as a prep cook for a friend with a small gourmet and contemporary restaurant. While pregnant, she worked at home to bake a variety of fresh breads for their dinner table baskets.

In 1982 Delia created her own catering business, Cruisin' Cuisine, with the first Kentucky daily gourmet meal delivery service from a preset menu.
