Custom Crafted Cuisine
“I am absolutely passionate about all things food. I am constantly reading anything I can get my hands on regarding ingredients, recipes, food trends and eating! I love to create, cook and feed people. There is nothing more gratifying to me than seeing someone absolutely savor something I’ve prepared especially for them.”
Deanna has been a high-end private chef and catering chef for over a decade. She earned her International Culinary Degree with Honors from the Art Institute in San Diego and had the opportunity to intern with a James Beard nominated chef while in school.
She worked for 5 years with Water’s Catering, San Diego’s absolute premier catering company, as both a Catering Chef de Cuisine as well as the Sous Chef for one of the company operated bistros. Deanna worked as a full-time private chef in San Diego for individual families including one family that was vegan, and gluten-free so she is very experienced with limited dietary guidelines.
She moved to Park City two years ago and is currently preparing both paleo and kid friendly meals numerous times a week for families here in town, one of which has children with severe food allergies. She also enjoys creating weekly vegan soup offerings as well as catering showers, birthday celebrations, and various other special events.
“When I started my culinary adventure my two sons were quite young so, as a single mom I have been blessed to be able to sustain my business through word of mouth over the last 9 years. Now that both of my boys are off in college, I am able to focus on growing my business as I establish myself here in Park City. However, it is very important to me to be able to keep my business at a capacity where I can continue to deliver my personal culinary special touches to every single client.” -Deanna
