As a celebrity chef, many of my clients are very health conscious. They understand that they have only one body and they have to take care of it. Being a native Californian, I am so lucky to have the best and healthiest products at my disposal, and as a chef, it is all about farm to table. I truly enjoy food in its simplest form, and I like my food to be the healthiest, freshest, and simplest as possible. I love to see my clients enjoying it more and more every day.
