Meet The Owner, Amanda Marijanovic
For over 20 years, I’ve built my career around storytelling and creating engaging experiences as a journalist, public relations specialist, and event producer. Opening a neighborhood cooking studio in the northern suburbs of Chicago (where I live, work and play) was a passion pivot for me. I've always been a foodie and creative home chef - I love to cook, eat and entertain. And as a mom of now twin teenage boys, I was inspired to watch their taste buds evolve over the years by exposing them to new flavors and giving them a starring role alongside me in our kitchen. I felt a welcoming culinary space designed to bring family and friends together to create good food and make lasting memories would truly fill a need in our community and I’m so proud to welcome you to our culinary studio for classes and events for all ages.
