Oh, Hey


Let's cook together

 

SCROLL DOWN

Oh, Hey


Let's cook together

 

 

Originally from Kansas City, I learned to love food and the art of cooking very early on from my foodie parents — American classics from my dad and vegetable-driven Asian cuisine from my Chinese mother. Extended study abroad stints throughout college only added fuel to my culinary fire, which ultimately lead me to New York City to attend the Natural Gourmet Institute to pursue my passion for healthful, innovative cooking. From Jean-George's Mercer Kitchen, straight into the private chef arena for a few years, then finally finding my culinary happy place as an instructor; teaching people to cook simple yet creative food that emphasizes the importance of gathering around a table continues to be my most important work. I focus on a seasonal, fresh, subtly complex style of food preparation sourcing local and organic when possible.

If you're in the NYC area, take one of my public upcoming classes at the beautiful Haven's Kitchen. And coming this Fall 2015, I will also have public classes available at Miette Culinary Studio

Aside from teaching, I am also available for a variety of Specialized Services. If you have a culinary idea or desire, I can help you make it happen. 

It is my extensive international travel that inspires and motivates my longterm culinary evolution. 

I live on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, NYC.
