Meet The Chef
The Secret Chef specializes in dinner parties, cocktail parties, private cooking classes, cooking class parties, corporate cooking classes, and food coaching in northeast Ohio.
I began my career working in restaurants through high school before earning a Journalism degree at St. Bonaventure University. From there I attended The Culinary Institute of America where I studied Culinary Arts. During my time there, I worked an internship at the LA Times and was published several times. After graduation, I moved to Hoboken, NJ where I worked for Art Culinaire Magazine and then Woman's Day Magazine.
I decided to start my own catering company and after10 stressful years of running a business, I decided kids would be less stressful and got pregnant. I sold the business to my chef in 2015 and moved to Cleveland and have since settled in Shaker Heights.
I teach cooking, part time, at Gervasi Vineyards and also bartend at Sibling Revelry Brewing once a week where my husband is the master brewer. We've since added another son to our family. I'm very excited to bring my passions for food and teaching together in this new venture.
