Back in stock August 2013.
At a young age Chef Alessandra Innamorato was inspired to start cooking by her mother, who didn’t like to cook, and her Italian father, who loved to eat. By age 13, she was preparing coq a vin, fresh pasta and Mediterranean feasts for her family and friends. She went on to work in kitchens galore, until 1993 when she enrolled in L’Academie de Cuisine. Here Alessandra learned culinary art and food science from master chefs Francois and Pascal Dionot and transformed what was previously only a job into a life calling.
Alessandra has cooked in three James Beard award-winning restaurants, including Fullers in Seattle. She’s worked with such notable names as Jimmy Snead, Jean-Louis Paladin, Monique Barbeau, Dean Fearing, and Gail Arnold. She’s fed Nancy Reagan, Al Gore, Liev Schreiber, Naomi Watts, Leonard Nimoy, Angelica Huston and Jimmy Dean the Sausage King. And now you!
Every single dish she makes from scratch, using only the freshest of ingredients, and all of her creations are infused with style, playfulness, and above all, LOVE.
“As far as I am concerned, Alessandra is the best thing to ever happen to food” – Merv Griffin, former employer
"These need to be on the bar of every restaurant in town"-Jenn Garbee, LA Weekly
