About Kristina Compton

Kristina Compton has fifteen years in the industry dating back to the early 2000’s. Upon graduation from High School, Kristina moved to Charleston, South Carolina, where she had the good fortune to land in the kitchen at Fig under the tutelage of Chef Mike Lata. It was this time at Fig that served as the foundation for her culinary education. Looking to further her cooking career Kristina moved to San Francisco, California. Since her arrival, she has worked in some of the Bay Area’s finest kitchens. Some highlights include Haven/Plum, Range, executive sous chef at San Francisco's Atelier Crenn, Mosu, and chef de cuisine at Avery. Recently Kristina has teamed up with chef Rachel Sillcocks creating Hilda and Jesse, a brunch pop-up (soon to be brick + mortar) celebrating the food of Latvia. Kristina considers this new venture as the ultimate opportunity to showcase her food in a fun and unique setting. She will bring the freedom, creativity, and excellence of fine dining to a welcoming neighborhood restaurant. @hildaandjessesf
