Lela’s had an interesting life. Working as a private chef for athletes was just a part of that.
She was a nutrition chef for people who required a diet solely as a means of sustenance. Food for fuel. That never ignited Lela’s passion, and she moved on to cooking she truly loved.
Lela specializes in Farm to Table dinners.
Local farmers contacted Lela. They had just slaughtered a lamb.
They had organ meats, fresh pumpkins, fresh squash.
Could she make something? Absolutely.
These were creative challenges for Lela.
She had the freedom to create any masterpiece she wanted with whatever fresh farm food was available to her.
“It’s fun in the kitchen, it’s fun to eat, it’s fun to share.”
Farm to table eating is a stronghold of Lela’s philosophy.
“I really like to savor my food. It’s really important to know where your food comes from.”
As a biologist and a chef, Lela believes that eating food that contributes to a healthy ecosystem is a vital part of living in a cohesive habitat.
