“My passion for food began at an early age when my mother would have my sisters and me in the kitchen assisting her in preparing elaborate vegetarian dishes for our family gatherings. She took us to all of the ethnic grocery stores from Little India to Little Italy, she knew all the local farmers, and she made sure we tasted food that was far beyond the usual North American palette. “
Sarah Joy discovered her passion for professional cooking after completing a holistic culinary curriculum that specialized in Personal Chef work. But her journey did not immediately lead her to a personal chef role after receiving her certification; instead, she worked with large-scale healthy food manufacturers and catering companies, developing recipes and training chefs across the country.
She then spent four years operating a Quality Control program for a large local San Francisco produce company and then moved into leading a vocational culinary program for a youth employment nonprofit organization in Oakland.
After 12 years on the commercial side, she has returned to where her vision began, as a personal chef, feeding healthy meals to families in the San Francisco / East Bay Area.
