Best known for her Southern, coastal book and blog, Some Kinda Good, Rebekah Faulk Lingenfelser is an author, food writer and culinary TV personality who never meets a stranger. Featured as one of Food Network’s top 10 finalists on Food Network Star, and on ABC’s The Taste, Rebekah has cooked for A-List celebrities including Bobby Flay, Giada de Laurentis, Tyler Florence, Anthony Bourdain and Marcus Samuelsson. “I could have never dreamed my love of cooking would take me around the USA, but it did and I am so grateful,” she said.
Rebekah comes from a long line of good cooks and grew up in Georgia enjoying large family get togethers around the family table, where her Grandma Dot taught her the art of “cat head” biscuits and her grandfather, Joe, was Middle Georgia’s pig pit king. The furthest thing from pretentious, her culinary cooking style is authentic, locally sourced, in-season cuisine with an appreciation for Georgia grown ingredients. “My hope for anyone who eats my cooking, is that they leave full and happy, satisfied by delicious food and fun company. That’s what I call a great evening,” she said.
A Georgia Southern University Eagle and entertainer at heart, Rebekah first earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Public Relations, where she studied writing, on-camera skills and media relations. Later, she attended Savannah Technical College’s award-winning Culinary Institute of Savannah to support her food writing and culinary entertainment career. “Culinary school taught me the things I couldn’t learn from reading food magazines, studying cookbooks and watching food programs,” she said. “I learned how to master French mother sauces, plating techniques and knife skills that have taken my cooking to the next level.”
She serves as the Statesboro Herald’s longtime food columnist and is a food contributor for several magazines in Southeast Georgia, including Southern Soil, Discovering Bulloch and Effingham Living. Featured in Forbes and on The VeryVera Show, Rebekah was also named one of the South’s Most Creative Tastemakers in Paprika Southern magazine and regularly appears on WTOC’s Morning Break as a culinary expert. Her signature dish is jambalaya with wild Georgia shrimp. Baking is a favorite pastime.

I cannot recommend Rebekah enough! She was communicative, prompt, an absolute delight, and prepared delicious food! Fried green tomatoes are out of this world and, I don’t know what her secret is, but her shrimp scampi was all velvety butter and tangy lemon and I can’t wait to go back to Savannah so we can have her cook for us again! Thank you for making our girls trip so memorable, hands down the best highlight of our trip!
We hired Chef Rebekah to cook for a business dinner party in our home. We had 7 guests, and she handled our varying desires and needs with great versatility! She charmed us with her lovely Georgia drawl, and she educated us as she cooked. We felt like a private live audience for a cooking show. The show-stopping courses left us completely satisfied! We all had a variety of favorites by the end of the meal, reflecting the consistent excellence of each dish. We would highly recommend her for any group looking for a one-of-kind hospitality experience. You will not be disappointed!
