About Ellen Kyle

I am new to the Bay Area but no stranger to food and well crafted parties! I grew up in rural, Eastern CT growing my own veggies, catching fresh seafood and working on farms. Growing up the rule in our house was "if you make dinner you don't have to do the dishes," so I was set on making dinner every night of the week. I am a designer by trade and love to travel. I often host elaborately themed dinner parties for friends, and love to solve dynamic social problems through menu planning. For me the food is as important to the table and setting it is in; crafting a great experience is my ultimate goal.
