I've been in the kitchen since day one, literally. I came into the world as my mom prepped for a catering event, arriving just in time for the party. My earliest memories were being propped up on the counter, touching and tasting everything.
I trained in the kitchens at Lucques, AOC and Grace under inspiring and award winning chefs who have built careers highlighting the abundance of vibrant ingredients here in Los Angeles.
This experience is paired with a lifelong cooking education from my Southern and Jewish grandmothers who taught me to infuse all my food with nourishment and love. Today, I wear multiple hats, all knit together by a passion for social activism, cultural curiosity and bringing people together around delicious food.
