Menu for Today, December 4

  1. Background
  2. Reviews

Born and raised in California, I've been surrounded by good food all of my life. My obsession with food started at the young age of three when I became addicted to watching reruns of Julia Child.

I attended the Culinary Institute of America at Greystone in the Napa Valley, where I honed my skills and began to turn my passion into a career.

I got my start at the very popular Tender Greens, where I learned the art of making the perfect salad. I worked in several restaurants in Southern and Northern California, exposing myself to a variety of cuisines. Through traveling and experiencing the rich culinary diversity of San Francisco, I have learned that my passion is cooking in a Mediterranean stye with a California flare. I am also inspired by the complexity that comes with playing with different spices from around the world.

In 2010, I met my mentor, Bridget Batson (also a Munchery chef) while working at Gitane. Under her guidance, she helped me become the chef I am today. She taught me the art of simplicity and the importance of using seasonal and local ingredients. I then moved on to their newly-opened sister restaurant, Claudine, where I eventually worked my way up to becoming the executive chef.

Now, I am excited to be at Munchery where I can showcase my passion for cooking and blending unique flavors to create amazing meals for you.

As always, one of my favorites. Juicy, lightly, spiced beef with yummy onions and cheese on a bun that holds up...and the fries are good too.

Good flavor, popular with the kids. Make sure to heat the dish properly to get the cheese filling nice and soft.

Tortellini was delicious but my son didn't care for the sauce that was provided. Instead he opted for a green pesto sauce that we had on hand at home. Portion size was great. Would love a side of ranch dressing to go with the carrots provided.

My son's chicken was raw inside (I cooked it over the recommended fine). Glad he is little and I was cutting it up.

Included only two small pieces of broccoli :(

By Cate Hrobsky
I would say the spice rub on the chicken drumsticks is too spicy to be suitable for small children. Broccoli was overcooked and over salted.

The noodles and sauce were ok. Not too salty either but the chicken had weird taste. Didn't taste fresh. My child only ate the noodles.

The meat and lettuce were mixed together, so it couldn't be separated per the instructions.

I LOVED the burger but the aioli was TOO HOT for me ... I was surprised how spicy it was, but the burger was good... would like more than 3 fries though......

Very little potatoes.

The sauce was not a tomato sauce. It was more of a mushroom/pesto sauce that wasn't kid friendly. The tortellini were good.

Kid's meal was essentially raw so we had to cook it ourselves, this is really bad especially when it's for kids, we're very disappointed
