Sommelier, City Winery, Philadelphia
Why she’s one to watch
A familiar face at the James Beard Foundation, Birdsong has studied in Paris and is highly motivated in her journey as sommelier.
Her culinary philosophy
“Always try new things and remember to have fun.”
One woman who has inspired her throughout the years
Her mother’s motivation is what keeps Birdsong limitless in her culinary career. “She has always pushed and encouraged me to explore all my interests and to never set limits. Even when things seem out of reach like moving to Paris,” says the sommelier.
Received the James Beard Foundation Scholarship Award for Le Cordon Bleu (2015), named a James Beard Foundation Women in Culinary Leadership Fellow (2018)
