Hello! It is so nice to meet you and I can't wait to share my recipes with you! I have spent the past decade honing my skills and learning from some of the best chefs in the world! It all started at culinary school in Paris at Le Cordon Bleu, and then onto New York to work under Chef Wylie Dufresne at WD-50, and then finally to Yountville, CA to learn from chef Thomas Keller at The French Laundry.
Upon returning to my hometown of San Diego, I began working under the Cohn Restaurant group umbrella, opening up 3 restaurants as Executive Chef—BO-beau kitchen + bar in 2010, 100 Wines Hillcrest in 2012, and BO-beau kitchen + roof tap in Long Beach in 2014. After all of these years, I have come up with flavor combinations and techniques that I know you are going to love!
I have been honored with the title of Best Chef 2014 by the Peninsula Beacon, in addition to winning Top Female Chef by Riviera Magazine and also Best Local Chef 2012 by Ranch & Coast Magazine.
You might have even watched me recently on the Food Network show's Beat Bobby Flay & Guy's Grocery Games (where I won $16,000!)
Now back in San Diego with Savory Made Simple, I cannot wait to bring exquisite cuisine from my kitchen to yours. It's the closest thing you can have to having your very own personal chef! From the kitchens of Paris, New York, Napa, and now…your own home!
