A Northern Utah native, Chef Jeff grew up among the mighty Rocky Mountains. His parents inspired his culinary skill from a young age. Chef Jeff’s mother taught him the delicacies of creating pastries and his father taught him to respect the hunt and honor the harvest. Cooking in the moment is Chef’s favorite way to work. He loves nothing more than to jiggle the dirt and create what mother nature has given him to work with.

Chef Connie

Chef Connie’s passion is to bake. Nine years ago her cooking/eating/baking-for-joy world got flipped upside down when her 15 year old son had to transition to a gluten-free, dairy-free lifestyle. She jumped in and started making allergen-free alterations to everything she had previously known and hasn’t looked back. She says it’s been the wildest and more rewarding journey. Chef Connie thrives on the challenges of creating recipes for people with any food allergy needs. Connie authors The Daily Forage, a blog to help others make delicious foods based on their dietary needs.
