About Your Host

CHEF LIZ Growing up in my parents' bakery in Florida, I learned from an early age the importance of healthy, nourishing ingredients and meals that were so delicious it brought people together. I decided to pursue my passion for the culinary arts in chef training at the Natural Gourmet Institute for Health and Culinary Arts in NYC - where I interned at Good Housekeeping's Recipe Test Kitchen and at the Jewish Community Center Culinary program. Back in LA, I started teaching kids nutrition and cooking through a USDA program at LAUSD called Chefs in the Classroom. I opened Cook LA Cooking school in 2010 where I am dedicated to cooking with organic, seasonal and local ingredients. Food is a personal journey, and it's our job to vote every day what to put in our bodies. CHEF ADAM Chef Adam joins Cook LA from New York City where he worked at Gabriel Kreuther’s Michelin starred-restaurant, The Modern, which features Alsatian French cuisine. Having worked as the chef’s assistant at NY’s Natural Gourmet Institute for Food and Health, where he later graduated from their Chef’s Training Program, Chef Adam’s cooking style focuses on fresh, healthy local ingredients. In addition to being a private chef, he has also worked with top chefs at the James Beard Foundation in Manhattan as well as NY’s Upper East Side’s Jewish Community Center Culinary Program. His other major culinary influence is Mediterranean cuisine, as he lived and worked in Barcelona for nearly two decades.
