About Cindy Rizzoli
At the young age of 26, Chef Cindy Rizzoli's career as a chef has no doubt just begun, but as the current Executive Chef at R10 Social House in Redondo Beach, she is breaking down the stereotypes and reinventing R10's kitchen and menu. Her love for cooking led her into her first restaurant job as a barback-- but it was her quick wit, determination, and ability to learn quickly that led her to the kitchen, cooking alongside the head chef. While attending the Culinary Institute of America in New York, Rizzoli worked for the previous White House Chef Walter Scheib, where she helped create dinners for hundreds of people and learned the creative ins and outs of the kitchen. After a short stint on the east coast, her personal life brought her back to her hometown in Southern California.
