Chef Sarah - Personal Chef

                       ... Meet The Chef ...

From the time I was a little girl fresh and delicious foods were a part of my life. Fond memories of being in the kitchen with my grandma, aunts and mom are among my favorites of childhood. Back then, food meant love and still does today.

As my interest in all things food related grew, I began attending cooking classes and participating in local cooking competitions. Years later, after attending Pennsylvania Culinary Institute, my Chef's career  began at the Grand Geneva Resort and Spa in Wisconsin. This resort boasted three "fine dining" restaurants, many opportunities in catering, along with hosting numerous celebrity attended special events.

Restaurants and traveling became my passion for the next several  years. The opportunity to become the Executive Sous Chef at Kirsch's  on the Bay in Wisconsin further enhanced my skills in the kitchen, as well as my rapport with vendors as a food buyer.  Jilly's Piano Bar in Chicago was next in my travels, but my desire to return home became strong.

I returned to the Pittsburgh area after accepting a wonderful position at the Grand Concourse Restaurant.  Shortly after that, came another opportunity to be a part of a restaurant from its inception.  SIBA Restaurant and Cucina near Cranberry, PA., gave me the chance to design menus, contribute to the restaurant lay-out and be a kitchen design consultant.

After marrying and having my daughter, I chose to offer my services in a more personal way. I am thrilled to bring my food philosophy to friends and neighbors in Allegheny, Butler, Monroeville and surrounding areas, while nurturing my daughter's budding interest in all things food related.

Bon Appetit,  Chef Sarah
