After being raised by a family of cooks and farmers, Chef Kira was inspired to pursue a career in food. Memories of making from-scratch hand pies with her grandmother, and farming with her grandfather urged her to submerge herself in the art of food, and learned the true value of flavor in kitchens across Europe and Morocco. Today, Chef Kira can be found sharing her epicurean wisdom with others via fun and interactive culinary experiences.
