Introducing our 2025 Guest Speaker – Alex Hitz

Christened “the very best host in the world” by The Wall Street Journal, Alex’s reputation as “The Ralph Lauren of food and wine” is backed by a lifetime of entertaining and cooking. He draws on an encyclopedic knowledge of the world’s upscale culinary classics as inspiration, as well as six generations of Southern tradition and hospitality.

Alex trained at Le Cordon Bleu, Paris and Peter Kump’s New York Cooking School. As a student, he apprenticed in the kitchens of Andre Soltner at Lutèce in New York, and Michel Guerard at Eugénie-les-Bains in France.

Award-winning chef, author, tastemaker, TV personality, lecturer, columnist, event designer, hospitality consultant, and master host, Alex Hitz is renowned for his sensitivity and refinement in the art of preparing and serving food. Informed by his childhood in Atlanta, and extensive travel from a very young age in France, Alex’s signature style combines the relaxed, warm-but-never-stuffy elegance of the genteel South and a continental élan that captures the essence of gracious living.

Alex is a contributing editor at House Beautiful, and Town & Country, and writes regularly for Departures, C, Southern Living, and Quest. Exclusive Food Columnist for many years at House Beautiful, he shared his step-by-step recipes, tips, and no-nonsense approach to cooking and entertaining in his monthly column, Alex’s Kitchen. In the past 28 years, Alex has written more than 500 magazine articles, and published three books.

Alex’s fourth book, Perfect Parties, will be published by Rizzoli, Fall, 2026.
