Meet The ‘Noms

ABOUT THE GASTRONOM

We started The Gastronom in 2012 thinking that we would do restaurant reviews, but with having two small boys, we quickly realized that our idea wouldn’t be feasible! We instead switched over to making recipes, quickly realizing that our cocktail and alcoholic recipes seemed to be doing the best, so we started focusing on those, which turned into the cocktail blog we have today.

 

ABOUT JAY AND LEAH HALL

Jay and Leah have been married almost 14 years and live in Omaha, Nebraska with our two boys, 9 and 6. We are lovers of cooking at home, swimming in our pool, travel and of course, cocktails! You will notice we reference each other sometimes as Mr and Mrs Nom, which after starting the blog are our affectionate nicknames for each other! Both of us love to entertain, and believe that food and drink not only nourishes us but feeds the soul! We are all about local culinary scenes, unique cocktail ingredients and spirited travel. Please see our Work with Us page if applicable.

 

EDUCATION

We met at Oklahoma State University, where Jay majored in Engineering, which he still does by trade. Leah majored in Hotel and Restaurant management, and was a restaurant manager with over 10 years in the service industry.
