Get to know me better
Eating is suppose to be an experience. Tasting the food & enjoying the company at the table. Let me bring an unforgettable experience to you!
I am a private chef & caterer, I attended Culinary Arts School in Florence, Italy at Apicius Culinary Art Institute. I have been cooking professionally since 2008 & have had the pleasure to cook for many high-end clients & private events. I am very passionate about creating beautiful, nutritious & delicious food.
My role model in the kitchen is Cat Kora, without a doubt & had the opportunity to meet & cook with her a couple years ago!
For me, cooking is more than just eating food. It is the whole experience of creating a menu, picking out the food, starting to prep, cook, and plate the meal. Being able to see my family, friends and clients enjoy something I created and cooked out of love.
For me, cooking is...
A way for me to have a creative outlet and try new recipes, cuisines, and foods in the comfort of my own home or my clients!
I learned to cook at...
I first learned from my grandmother who was so crafty in the kitchen. I then attended culinary art school in Florence, Italy at Apicius.

I have too many to list in this small space. I love chefs that use local, seasonal foods to create simple yet delicious food without much effort.
