During the beginning of her career, Ingrid managed a constant flow of specialty & local ingredients arriving on the doorsteps of the restaurants where she worked. This meant that menus changed daily, giving Ingrid the foundation to creatively conceive dishes on an ongoing basis. Whether there are foods of which you want to explore, or ingredients from your garden that you would like to enjoy in a new way, Ingrid can customize dishes to your unique tastes and requests. Gluten-free & dairy-free diets are happily accommodated.
