Chef Anja is a passionate, French and Californian trained chef. Her catering career took her from her hometown of Tahoe City to traveling the world to cook in different gastronomic kitchens. France, Italy, Spain, Napa, San Francisco, Tahoe, you name it - she's cooked there.
Now based in San Francisco, she shares her love of food by teaching Knife Skills basics to Plating advanced dishes. Her style spans wide, but she gravitates towards a French-Mediterranean-Californian perspective with a healthy, flavorful emphasis in mind.
Anja's signature dishes range from French Savory Tarts and French Crepes, to a French Slow-Cooked Orange-Anise Lamb Shank paired with Sweet Potato and a Forbidden Rice Salad. Her cooking is dynamic and always evolving while keeping health and flavor as the main focus.
She believes in always having a delicious fresh salad and home-made dressing on the menu to start, filled with fresh vegetables, fruits, nuts, and cheese. After, she strives to infuse all sorts of herbs and spices into every dish.
For dessert, her go-to is a Fresh Berry Crumble with a Gluten-Free Vanilla Almond Coconut Topping.
DELICIOUS. NUTRITIOUS. LUXURIOUS.
