Chef Dolester Miles

Highlands Bar & Grill, Bottega, Chez Fonfon

Dolester Miles is nothing short of legendary in the world of Southern desserts. Winner of the 2018 James Beard Award for Outstanding Pastry Chef, her coconut cake is a local favorite in Birmingham, but we're partial to her chocolate espresso cake.
