Christine Wells

Christine has been cooking her whole life, but found professional inspiration when she moved to New York after graduating from Washington University in St Louis. Following a stint as a food photographer, Christine attended the French Culinary Institute (now the International Culinary Center) in NYC.  Choosing upscale catering over restaurant kitchens, Christine worked with chefs from across the country at City Grit, a culinary salon for well-known, out-of-town chefs. From Grit to Winery, Christine then accepted the position of head catering chef at Brooklyn Winery. There she developed and executed innovative menus for small parties as well as large weddings, always focusing on inventive and seasonal content. Leaving Brooklyn for San Francisco, Christine most currently worked as Executive Sous Chef and then Chef de Cuisine at Foxtail Catering.  In those roles, she lead the catering program in both planning and execution. Christine is inspired by new culinary trends, and this inspiration shows itself in every dish.
