About Natalie Lewis


My love for food and cooking has always been a part of who I am and I find continuous inspiration through sharing this love with others.  My life’s beginnings took place in a small Ohio town, just outside of Cincinnati, where my childhood passion turned into big city dreams at a young age.  In 2002, I graduated from Le Cordon Bleu, Paris with a diploma in French cuisine.

Upon graduation from culinary school, I continued my education through a combination of work experience with a variety of upscale catering companies and extensive international and domestic travels which enabled me to enhance my knowledge of regional and cultural fare.

In 2007 I developed my passion further as I moved to Napa Valley, gaining a rich appreciation for local sustainable cooking and the respected art of viticulture.  Shortly after my time in Napa I relocated one last time to Northern New Jersey where I am now settled with my husband and daughter, doing what I love as a Personal Chef.

    Love love love your blog! Love anyone willing to sit and write about food! I run a cupcake business from my house, and may incorporate that into my blog somehow. I am a Jersey girl, relocated to Maryland, but Jersey runs deep in my blood! Especially when I am standing outside pumping my own darn gas and eating crummy bagels;)
