Bio - Chef Abby
It was love at first sight! And smell. And taste. Abby's first trip to Italy instilled a love of all things Italian, especially the food and culture brought together at the table. Since that first taste she has been pursuing her passion for the best ingredients prepared in simple yet delicious ways.
After graduating with a degree in Restaurant and Resort Management, Abby attended the Master Course at the Italian Culinary Institute for Foreigners in the Piemonte region of Italy where she learned more in depth about regional Italian cuisine, the wonders of Italian wine, and products like Grana Padano cheese. The course included a 3 month stage at a Michelin Starred restaurant in Torino called Ristorante Magorabin.
After this incredible experience Abby decided it was time for a new adventure which meant a move to Seattle. Since moving Abby has been a part of multiple restaurant openings and has worked at a variety of restaurants including Tilth and Black Bottle Postern. Her experience with Maria Hines and fondness for Italian food led her to becoming the Executive Chef at Agrodolce, a Sicilian restaurant in Fremont, where she flourished in the creative environment, writing menus for all services, special holidays and events, as well as training and guiding new cooks to success. After an amazing 5+ years in the position, it was time again for new adventures! Abby is now teaching cooking classes at Caruccio’s and other schools in the Puget Sound area as well as doing private catering. Find her on instagram : @livesforfood
