Amy von Eiff 

Amy von Eiff is the Owner and Executive Chef for A Cut Above Catering, Classes & Events based in Carmel, IN.  Chef Amy has an extensive culinary background, specializing in International as well as Southern Cuisine. She attended Ivy Tech and studied the culinary arts abroad in Florence, Italy.  Her extensive experience in event planning and catering has been key to A Cut Above’s prominence as a premiere caterer in Central Indiana.  

Chef Amy is most recognizable from her monthly TV spots on WISHTV's "Indy Style" where she demos her latest recipes and "chef tips" and appears as a regular guest on Fox 59 with Sherman.  Chef Amy was the first place winner in a cooking contest sponsored by allrecipes.com and Reader’s Digest and she also publishes food reviews and serves as a content expert for Carmel Magazine and other local media resources.

Chef Amy’s true passion for cooking came from watching her grandmother and mother in the kitchen before she was even tall enough to reach the kitchen counter.    Her greatest joy comes from sharing her culinary expertise to bring out the chef in others and empower them to serve restaurant-quality creations from their own kitchen.
