Charity Johnston

Beverage Director The Madera Group

Receiving the Zagat 30 under 30 award at the start of her career, Charity has no doubt made a huge impact in the Food and Beverage industry. She has worked alongside Gordon Ramsay, Jason Eisner, and Chris Hugh’s and her passion truly shows with the outcome of her work. She began her career at the young age of 21 when she decided to enter this industry as a bartender in Los Angeles. Her keen sense of flavor and taste has lead her passion to become a full time career and never stops experimenting. Though she has found being a woman in a heavily dominated male industry to be a challenge it has not stopped her from progressing. We are so excited to have a woman like her on our judges panel.
