About Margarita Kallas-Lee
Margarita Kallas-Lee hails from Latvia, where she grew up with her grandparents, who both loved cooking. From a very young age, she had a curious palate and would diligently watch those around her as they created unique flavors and dishes. After spending time cooking professionally at catering events around Los Angeles, she joined D'Cache in 2011 as its pastry chef. Chef Margarita reunited with her high school friend Phillip Frankland Lee, and the two were married in 2012. They decided to team up professionally at that point and started ventures together with Wolf Cuisine and then Scratch|Bar in both its Beverly Hills and now current Encino location. As a pastry chef, Kallas-Lee now designs and runs the dessert programs at Scratch|Bar & Kitchen, El Chavo and the upcoming Oh Man! Ramen.
