About Armen Piskoulian
Armen has always exuded a passion for cooking. His love for sharing food with family and friends lead him to take his first job at Michael's in Santa Monica. Post Michael's, Armen enrolled into The Tasting Kitchen whole animal butchery program, where an appreciation for using the entire animal became of utmost importance to his culinary philosophy. While seasonal cooking and pasta became his main focus, an opportunity to travel abroad to Sydney, Australia, awakened his culinary interests to a world of southeast Asian influences.
