Prior to her move, she lived in the Napa Valley for twenty years; teaching at the Napa Valley Cooking School and working as a Pastry Chef de Partie at The French Laundry. She is thrilled to be part of the team at Hotel Wailea, and to share this experience with you!

“This class was the best thing we did on our entire 10 day vacation across multiple Hawaiian islands. The food, Chef Krista, the class size, the kitchen, the wine – it was perfect in every way!”
