My first memories of the kitchen started with being my Dad’s sous chef. Every weekend we would make pancakes and scrambled eggs, over the years he taught me all his kitchen secrets and techniques. I was always in awe of him in the kitchen, it was his happy place, and quickly became mine. His love of food, and passion for the kitchen inspired my own desire to become a chef and share my love of cuisine with others.
I am a Private Chef/Caterer located in the beautiful South Bay. I was lucky enough to live my dream of studying abroad in Italy, and am both classically and Italian trained. My philosophy about food and cooking is to use fresh, whole foods prepared simply. I am passionate about quality over quantity. I believe in supporting our local farmers markets, and getting the best products possible. Seasonal ingredients shine from being prepared well with quality ingredients. I carefully hand select everything that I cook for my clients and treat each meal with the utmost care and consideration.
My love of entertaining inspired me to share my joy through The Inspired Palate. My team and I strive to make something as simple as a weekday meal, to a large catered party something special. Let’s see what we can cook up together!
