Chef Courtney

Cooking is very personal and individualized; where you can share your journey and discover others. There’s the act of creating something extraordinary out of nothing with a few simple ingredients. You can see the smile on your guests after the meal begins.

She’s a graduate of Le Cordon Bleu College of the Culinary Arts in Sacramento and later Seattle Pacific University with a Bachelor’s in Food and Nutritional Sciences, Dietetics.
