Chef and Owner of Chef Anna Cooks! a personal chef service
I simply love cooking. It not only
allows me to be creative, but to also create something tangible and
meaningful. Memories are made over a fantastic meal and I love being a
part of that.
After 16 years working as an
Administrative Assistant, I decided to follow my passion. I am a
graduate of Le Cordon Bleu, Seattle, and have interned at such
restaurants as The Rainier Club and Osteria La Spiga.
While studying at Le Cordon Bleu, I won the Constitution Day menu
contest and had the opportunity to learn from acclaimed Chefs and
Bakers, such as Ewald Notter, founder of the Notter School of Pastry Arts in Orlando, FL and author of "The Textbook for Sugar Pulling & Sugar Blowing" and Julia User, author of "Cookie Swap".
I have a passion for ethnic food, my
favorites being Portuguese, Spanish, Moroccan, and Italian. I have
traveled extensively throughout Spain, Portugal, and Morocco, and have
had an opportunity to learn simple, yet oftentimes overlooked,
techniques from those cultures. However, I also love cooking and
preparing simple food - from a fragrant roast chicken to cedar smoked
salmon. Using the best ingredients, proper cooking techniques, and
creating recipes from scratch are my foundation for creating beautiful,
memorable, and incredible tasting food.
