Emily Newmark is the R&D Manager of Munchery, San Francisco. Born and raised in California, she has been surrounded by good food all of her life. She attended the Culinary Institute of America at Greystone in the Napa Valley, where she honed her skills and began to turn her passion into a career. She got her start at the very popular Tender Greens and has worked in several restaurants in Southern and Northern California, exposing herself to a variety of cuisines. In 2010, she met her mentor, Bridget Batson (also a Munchery chef) while working at Gitane. Under her guidance, she then moved on to their newly-opened sister restaurant, Claudine, where she eventually worked her way up to becoming the executive chef. Now, she is excited to be at Munchery where she can showcase her passion for cooking and blending unique flavors to create amazing meals for you.
