Chef in Los Angeles, California
My name is Vanessa Lauren, I have over 10 years of culinary experience working with some of the biggest names in the current culinary world including Anthony Bourdain, Ludo Lefebvre, James Beard award winners Jon & Vinny, Marcus Samuelson, and Marcel Vigneron. My unique education in nutrition and culinary arts allows me to really customize the dining experience for my guests, so I can make couture menu based on any dietary needs or restrictions. I specialize in global fusion with a health conscious twist! I believe that an amazing dish starts with quality ingredients, therefor I hand select only the best local seasonal ingredients from farmers markets or direct from artisans and craftsman. I also like to incorporate wild foraged herbs and blossoms.
I am looking for a new job where I can be creative and have work/life balance! I have full availability and am happy to come in for a private interview and tasting! Chef references upon request.
