have a "sweet party" with chef meghan
I would describe myself as an absolute FOODIE!!! I love eating out. I love dining in. I love throwing dinner parties. I love writing fun, customized menus. I love learning new recipes and techniques. But, most of all I love bringing people together to share in a new culinary experience. I have been in the hospitality industry since the age of 15, working almost every position there is at a restaurant. However, I would consider myself primarily self-taught in the kitchen. The majority of my experience, coming from the “front of house”, including; bartending, serving, and event management. Utilizing the higher paying positions in order to put myself through school. After college, I set out to follow my true passion. Creating dishes that look and taste amazing. Since then, I have traveled throughout the United States, South America, Thailand and parts of Europe, gaining an incomparable education in the foods of those regions and cultures. In addition, I have acquired a multitude of experience working in Tennessee, Sonoma County, Brooklyn and San Francisco catering companies, gourmet cafes, swanky Michelin rated eateries and those treasured neighborhood dives. Throughout my journey, I have soaked up the most valuable experiences, and with that, I am able to do what I am doing today in beautiful Lake Tahoe. Did I mention, I get to go to the beach every day? Well, that is also why I live here!! I’m blessed to be living in such a destination hot spot for all you party people seeking a fun get away! And this is the reason I am so passionate about having my Sweet Party Personal Chef business here. I want to enhance your stay, satisfy your cravings, and help create the best vacation experience possible for you.
I would say my style of cooking is a mirror reflection of my travels, my friends, my family, and my work experiences all wrapped into one…always changing and always evolving for the best!!!
