Get to know me better
A chef dedicated to her guests and craft. Chef Kristin cares!
Aloha from the islands!
Unlike some professionals, I didn’t aspire to be a chef at a young age. I began my culinary journey while attending college as a means to bring family and friends closer together. After graduating from UCLA, I attended the Le Cordon Bleu, California Culinary Academy in San Francisco.
In 2004, I moved to Hawaii to launch my career as a chef. I have trained and collaborated with a diverse team of master chefs and my experience in renowned restaurants honed my fundamental kitchen skills and broadened my culinary techniques.
I am now a 15-year veteran in the service industry with an expansive list of clientele including restaurateurs, entertainment celebrities, entrepreneurs and sport figures. I am continually learning as my cuisine and palate evolves.
My years of experience in fine dining restaurants and catering companies, as well as my established relationships with local purveyors, have created a solid foundation for my growing business.
I invite you to join me for a meal.
For me, cooking is...
A way to bring family and friends together.
