Hi, I’m Bridgette. I’m a local personal chef in the Sacramento Area. My desire is to bring people back together through food and conversation. I believe food is not just fuel. When we share simple meals with people we love or even someone we’ve just met, it is community.
I have been in the culinary world for almost 20 years and have had the opportunity to work with many amazing people and companies. Through the years I have come to realize how food has impacted my entire life. I have met so many people from so many cultures, made memories and created traditions that have become centered around real food and love. Nothing makes me more happy than when I’m feeding someone. Getting to share information about new foods, telling stories of how the meal came to be, or reliving a memory of loved ones that have passed as I make something they showed me how to cook. Although I do get excited about creating some new exotic dish for a large event, I must admit that a simple dinner with family and friends is grander than any recognition the world may give me.
I am excited to be apart of this amazing retreat and look forward to sharing food, love and peace with all who join us!
When I met Bridgette, it was, as with everything else to do with putting this retreat together, handed to me from the universe. The passion she has for food and creating a comforting and a celebratory environment is outrageous. On top of that, she is cognizant of the whole fresh and local scene, our food sources are going to be amazing and all local to No Cal. Her knowledge of nutrition and balance is prime and acute! As we mull over options for the menu, I am here to tell you, you don’t want to miss a moment of time watching her create a meal with all her heart! We are so freaking lucky to have her apart of the Cognizant Reconstruction team in Northern California! I’m salivating just thinking about next month and the fare that awaits us!
Love, Happy belly and happy heart, and Namaste,
