Cooking is my pride and joy and I love supporting people with their dietary health needs!
I am a Private Chef who specializes in catering to individuals with dietary restrictions and specific dietary needs.
I graduated from the Culinary Institute of America in 2011 with an Associates Degree of Occupational Studies in Culinary Arts, In 2013 I graduated from the Institute of Integrated Nutrition as a Certified Health Coach. I lived in India and learned Indian cuisine while living there, I have worked with prestigious Chefs and worked in fine dining restaurants in Europe, New York City, and Los Angeles.
I have over twelve years experience working as a line cook, pastry chef and private chef. I enjoy cooking different cuisines such as Italian and South East Asian. My favorite part about cooking a meal is making the dessert. I love experimenting with recipes, which I post on my blog for fun, at www.eatinglove.com.
