kirsten_pasta_w400I’m a Bay Area girl who has cooked all over the world: in Thailand, the Czech Republic, at Babbo in NYC making pasta for Mario Batali, here in SF at Boulevard and inside the homes of my wonderful clients. After all that, I’ve realized one thing: I love making great meals without pomp and circumstance. I’m low-key, funny and all about good, soul-satisfying food. Now that I’m teaching people how to cook at the San Francisco Cooking School, I feel like I’ve come full circle.

I am passionate about the Bay Area food scene. Exploring new (to me ) neighborhoods and markets, trying old and new restaurants – this is my favorite way to spend a day off.

I still cook private dinners in people’s homes. If you have any questions for me or want to talk about booking an event, you can contact me by email or telephone.
