Founder, Love To Eat, Eat To Love.


For two decades, I have been cultivating my passion for all things food and drink. Through every facet of the hospitality industry, I have procured and honed my professional service skills while continuing to grow from every opportunity. My training and experience are rooted in both front- and back-of-the-house positions in the top restaurants and luxury hotels of San Francisco, New York, and Saint Louis, and in a pursuit of continual education at wineries, breweries, organic farms, and creameries around the country.

Building from my outgoing personality and entrepreneurial spirit, I have combined my energetic virtuosity, imaginative ingenuity, and penchant for writing to create and manage a thriving brand dedicated to furthering others’ love affair with the edible, drinkable that world I call home.

Love To Eat, Eat To Love


What started as a Facebook post by STLwinegirl Angela Ortmann to promote kindness, positivity, and collaboration is now a movement to celebrate of the delicious diversity that exists here in St. Louis. The first event, "Immigration Collaboration," was held in February 2017 at Mai Lee Restaurant and showcased over 50 immigrant chefs and immigrant-owned restaurants to raise money for the International Institute. 

The success and popularity of that event prompted the idea to turn into a series of events. 

The second installment of Love To Eat, Eat To Love took place at 2nd Shift Brewery in November 2017 and highlighted the wonderfully talented women working in the food and beverage scene of St. Louis. "Force De Femme" featured over 100 female chefs, restaurateurs, bartenders, brewers, sommeliers, farmers, distillers, distributors, artisans, makers, etc ... collectively creating a unique food and drink experience to raise money for programs that support and protect women in need and that empower young girls for their future.

If you have enjoyed one or both installments of the Love To Eat, Eat To Love event series or are looking forward to the other exciting things we have planned, please sign up for our email list and follow our Facebook page to keep up-to-date on future events and opportunities to support the STL food & beverage scene and the community it graciously serves.
