  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.

You should group meatloaf and potatoes together in large compartment and green beans and roll in the other.

1 of my favorites. Beans should be packaged in smaller compartment with roll and mashed yams with meatloaf in larger compartment.

One of my favorite Munchery vegetarian dishes ever! Great flavors, soft yummy pita bread, and filling. The quinoa rounded the whole thing out nicely.

These are my favorite. This time too much onion, was better the last time I got it. Hopefully next time will be equally delish.

I was so impressed it had fresh artichoke hearts! So hearty and delicious, and the goat cheese roasts really rounded out the meal. I’ll definitely order this again!

Kids thought it was okay. They didn't like how thick the buns are.

The teriyaki sauce was good, but the salmon seemed a little overcooked. Ironically, the rice mixed seemed undercooked. The carrots were still hard and I had to pick them all out before feeding to my child.

Beans need more flavor, plantains underripe

Salmon was very good. My son didn't like the rice very much, so I ate it up.

The flavor is very nice. No complaints about that. But the pickled carrots are WAY too big. The picture is deceptive. Instead of long ribbons of pickled spicy carrots, i received 2 (not 3) thick medallions. You can’t even eat them in the taco. Why?

I order this frequently. This time, the meatball was off in taste & texture. The beans were crisp, just the way I like them. The sweet potatoes - mmmm, good.

Hearty stew with heat! Love it (and I'm not even vegetarian). Cornbread was light and moist. Enjoyed the contrasting crunch of the slaw. Will definitely order again.

Good but inconsistent with portions. Also the cook left a piece of orange in the meal that was inedible.

Could use a few more veggies to fill it out a bit. Maybe some peppers. Wonderfully flavored though. The condiments included are very tasty. Please bring this back I haven't seen it since I first joined. Very good veggie option.

The carrots turned white-ish which made it so unappealing! Would prefer steamed vegetables instead.
