  1. Background
  2. Reviews

Born and raised in California, I've been surrounded by good food all of my life. My obsession with food started at the young age of three when I became addicted to watching reruns of Julia Child.

I attended the Culinary Institute of America at Greystone in the Napa Valley, where I honed my skills and began to turn my passion into a career.

I got my start at the very popular Tender Greens, where I learned the art of making the perfect salad. I worked in several restaurants in Southern and Northern California, exposing myself to a variety of cuisines. Through traveling and experiencing the rich culinary diversity of San Francisco, I have learned that my passion is cooking in a Mediterranean stye with a California flare. I am also inspired by the complexity that comes with playing with different spices from around the world.

In 2010, I met my mentor, Bridget Batson (also a Munchery chef) while working at Gitane. Under her guidance, she helped me become the chef I am today. She taught me the art of simplicity and the importance of using seasonal and local ingredients. I then moved on to their newly-opened sister restaurant, Claudine, where I eventually worked my way up to becoming the executive chef.

Now, I am excited to be at Munchery where I can showcase my passion for cooking and blending unique flavors to create amazing meals for you.

The dressing on this was really tasty!

Ok, wow. Pleasantly surprised and impressed by this dish. Mildly spicy (IMO) and full of flavor. While I wish it had had just one more tortilla (still ate all that was left, don’t get me wrong!)

As it said, balanced meal for kids. Not much sauce on it. Maybe should provide sauce on the side. But look at the nutritional levels ..... over 1200mgs of sodium in that dish. Wow.

This “kale” salad had 4 pieces of small kale and a small handful of cut romaine. Flavor was okay but you could hardly call it a salad. So disappointing!

We cannot tolerate spicy food and you didn’t indicate this was spicy so we Ordered but could not eat it.Your dishes seem to be getting spicier. If we are to continue using Munchery we will need to be able to know what dishes are spicy! Thank you.

Kids loved it. But, please package the green beans separately because I had to rinse the yams off them for the kids to eat them.

Picture is a little deceiving. Patty is Very thin, over cooked and flavorless. But the sauce is and accompaniments are good.

This was like no posole I’ve ever tasted. There were WAY too many mushrooms and very little hominy. The taste is difficult to described but not tasty at all and nothing like any of the multiple vegetarian pistoles I’ve tasted or made over 20 ye
