Personal Chef and Holistic Life Coach
I was born and raised in North Sea.
HOW DID YOU START IN THE FOOD BUSINESS?
I’ve been obsessed with the science and beauty of food since I was young. My first job was on a farm at age 12. I started cooking privately at age 14 with an older chef for a producer in East Hampton. Shorty after, I started catering lunches, dinners and holiday parties on my own.
Artichokes cooked alla romana are heaven.
BIGGEST FOOD SURPRISE
I’ve been told by anti-vegetable eaters that I make eating healthy taste good. It’s thanks to my Italian training.
FAVORITE HAMPTONS RESTAURANT
The Beacon in Sag Harbor. Not only is the menu incredible, but the staff, the view and the drinks are always a win. My favorite dish by far is the stuffed portobello mushroom with broiled smoked mozzarella and a caper white wine sauce that will have you licking the plate.
FOOD MAKES YOU...
Grateful, humble, satisfied.
BEST THING ABOUT YOUR JOB
Making people feel the good kind of full and feeding families wholesome, clean meals from our local farms. Supporting small, organic and family-owned businesses is my main goal. Farm-to-table isn’t just another fad; it’s a lifestyle.
