Chef Corey, Orange County, CA
My love for food began as a young child; my Italian grandmother insisted on cooking everything from scratch and her attention to detail inspired me.
For me, cooking isn’t just about following recipes, I follow the food back to its source. As an avid gardener I’ve been able to cultivate and grow a lot of my own, which brings an element of warmth and care to what I already love to do. As a Chicago native, I couldn’t be happier having moved to California, where the growing season never ends.
