Cecilia Marchesini

Owner, Cecilia's Kitchen

Maker: Chef

Cecilia Marchesini hails from a small village in Argentina; she brings that background to her cooking, along with the crêpes her ex-husband taught her to make (he’s originally from France). “I grew up eating really seasonal,” she says. “We didn’t have access to so many things like you have here.” In that spirit, she uses local meats and produce whenever possible ..Cecilia took her first cooking class at the age of 12. Her life long passion is the driving force behind Cecilia's Kitchen. Cecilia cooks from folk to gourmet dishes pulling from her roots, life experiences, and creativity.
