Born in Newport Beach, California, Chef Kori Sutton has literally spent most of her life in the kitchen. Her passion, enthusiasm and appreciation for food are evident. She developed her culinary roots at a young age; working in her family’s catering business.
With 18 years of culinary experience, Chef Kori has immersed herself in all facets of the gastronomic industry, working at upscale restaurants, hotels, and in private Homes. She has participated in the most prestige international gourmet events in Aspen, New York and Mexico.
Chef Sutton’s philosophy is simple: “Food should inspire all the senses and the environment should be warm and welcoming”. She has adapted the concept, Farm to Table, by developing a close relationship with the local purveyors. This relationship allows her the opportunity to use only the freshest ingredients. Her cooking style is an infusion of Latina and international flavors with the modernization of old school techniques, respecting dietary, religious, and health restrictions.
No matter where she is in the world, her true home is in the kitchen and discovering the endless culinary possibilities is very much her comfort zone.
