A warm, humble and calm presence who's smile lights up a room. I am easily able to connect with my clients and provide top-notch service and cuisine.
Hello! I am Leila Beltrame.
I trained as a chef in Brazil where I owned and operated my own restaurant for 13 years. I created amazing recipes and thoroughly enjoyed sharing my knowledge and expertise with my staff. When I was younger, you could find me in my grandmother's kitchen. We spent precious time together, and not only did we create wonderful memories, but we created many wonderful culinary delights! It was through her, that I learned to cook Italian food and it is something that I still enjoy making to this day. While Italian food is one of my most favorites, I am knowledgeable in many different types of cuisines and can tailor my cooking to many specific dietary needs.
Fun facts: I am a certified coach and have a background in physical education. I have utilized my certification to help people achieve healthier lifestyles and obtain healthier eating habits. I have also taught pre-school culinary classes and am currently a representative for Epicure. I am also a chocolatier and own Amor de Dolce Luxury Brazilian Chocolates!
