Chef in San Diego, California
HI, I’m Ashley McBrady, a career professional chef and passionate creative. With over 16 years in restaurant kitchens, I have a lot of experience to bring to the table. My passion for cooking began in childhood working with my family in their restaurant and commercial bakery. I’ve worked my way up and always took every opportunity to learn as much as I could. My palate is sophisticated and I love experimenting with new flavors while respecting the history and diversity of cultures through their food . In my journey I have been lucky to have gained some accolades, one I’m especially proud of was being nominated best female chef and also new chef in Denver, CO.
I really enjoy throwing themed events and dinners and have held successful pop-up events focusing on vegetarian and vegan cooking in fun and out of the box ways. I’m so happy to be back in San Diego and really get in touch with the local bounty we have to share.
With the climate of dining changing, I’d like to bring some new possibilities to the table. Whether curating an exciting date-night in the comfort of home, or meal planning and prep for your busy family. I take pride in every dish and experience.
