Get to know me better
I’m passionate about my work and love to be creative.
Sara Hansen’s culinary career began early on, inspired by her trips to Italy and their love of food and respect for quality and tradition. After graduating from the Arizona Culinary Institute at age 19, Sara sought opportunities to further develop her own creativity.
Sara’s culinary repertoire flourished during an internship at the McKinley Chalet Resort in Denali, Alaska where she developed and refined her culinary techniques. She proceeded to Arizona where she worked at The Roaring Fork, Desert Mountain Country Club, and served as Chef and Manager to Stacey Weber’s EAT. It was there where she extended her skills to all outlets of catering, private events and in home personal chef, landing her a prestigious reputation, pleasing the palettes of Arizona’s most exclusive clientele, including athletes, business owners, and high profile families.
When Sara's not making extraordinary meals and educating her clients on the importance of a balanced meal, she loves to exercise, travel (any beach, any where), and spend time with her pups and adoring husband.
