After graduating from the Culinary University, Chef Ari would travel to the United States to continue her training. She would join renowned San Francisco Restaurant, Bar Tartine, located in the Mission district of San Francisco. Trained by incredible chefs, Nick Balla and Courtney Burns, Chef Ari not only learned the concept and execution of farm to table cuisine, but also introduction to many new ingredients, understanding of quality food, fermentation and organic produce. During her tenure, Chef Ari would most importantly learn nutritional requirements and how to manage individual food requirements such as restrictions, preferences and allergies.
Time spent at Bar Tartine opened Chef Ari’s eyes to the importance of food conservation. “Use everything, try everything and take the food products that are normally discarded and learn to be creative, transforming those unused foods and make them delicious”
Chef Ari brings many styles of cuisine together from traditional Mexican flavors, farm to table and global cuisine. Chef Ari promises to utilize the freshest, local, and organic ingredients, respecting these delicious food products in seasoning, marinating and cooking preparation and delivering exceptional service.
The ultimate aim of Chef Ari is to help the local producers by procuring their seasonal ingredients and utilizing them in her menus. Additionally, to show these farmers appreciation for their hard work and commitment in producing flavorful local produce.
