Chef Cheryl Tate is a 4th generation Angeleno growing up in the South LA area. Her father, uncles, grandfather, and great grandfather were all Pullman Porters. A rich legacy of foodservice and hospitality has given Chef Tate the “people edge” as both sides of her family are steeped in service to the community on many sectors. Food and family were the core of her upbringing with a large family and close neighborhood ties.
A graduate of Le Cordon Bleu School of Culinary Arts, the Chef has a Classically trained background in food knowledge and preparation. An internship at Mattel Toys in El Segundo, CA introduced her to enormous corporate kitchen structure and family clientele. The experience needed to discern personal professionalism along with office politics was learned under Chef Abram Dylan Regan. The commercial kitchen/restaurants were not the intended path, as the Private/Personal Chef was the goal working closely with the client.
