  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.

Green beans were hard and rubbery. Meatballs tasted like ketchup.

Don’t order this burger. You’re better off satisfied going through ‘any’ drive thru at any burger joint. Sauce is bland & offensively chunky. Cheese is poorly flavored & sliced.

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.

Lettuce were all brown - had to throw it away. Also your customer support - Kalista M head kept insisting It is pink and not brown - essentially implying I can’t see color properly. She needs to be trained on how to communicate with customers

Ketchup and mustard should come with. I loved when had bacon. Maybe an add on option?

A little bit of sharp cheddar won’t hurt. Can’t taste the cheese. Texture of pasta is good though.

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!)

My toddler won’t eat raw veggies, so that part of the meal is wasted for us.

The bread / cheese was a really odd pairing with this. The price for this meal was too high for the ingredients
