About Chef Zarla:

As a 4th generation chef, Zarla’s love for food formed early in life.  She started her career in Accounting and Office Management before deciding to follow her dreams and do what she loves.  Her culinary journey started in 2005, catering to close family and friends during the weekends and eventually earned her Chef de Cuisine Diploma from Liaison College in 2011.  She then worked in all facets of the culinary world from a hotel chain to a specialty restaurant and casino. She became a Personal Chef in 2015, realizing that most of her clients are in need of someone able to adapt meals according to their lifestyle and health needs. 

Chef Zarla loves the challenge of creating locally-grown, seasonal and healthy meals, without sacrificing taste.  Her vision and mission has evolved especially since experiencing some life changing health issues that directed her to research and learn about utilizing food as medicine.  From loving to cook to developing a passion to provide the kind of food that nourishes and heals.

LUNCH: HEARTY A big salad and one of our meals should fill you up for the day.

DINNER: LIGHT End your day with a light meal like a small salad or soup
