Chef Ryan Rondeno has a passion for French, Italian and Regional American Cuisine. Daily he introduces his clients to new cuisine with his focus on healthy, organic cuisine with a strong emphasis on bold flavors. Chef Rondeno continues to revamp his own style of cooking with the movement of clean eating and economic friendly products.

Ryan is originally from Metairie, Louisiana. Ryan was introduced to Southern Cuisine by his family of cooks. His grandfather, a great chef, played a notable role in developing Ryan’s passion for cooking at an early age. At sixteen, Ryan began working in a local steakhouse as a prep cook where the love for Cajun-Creole cuisine began. In high school, he worked his way up to line cook. After graduating from high school, Ryan attended the Chef John Culinary Institute where he discovered his passion for culinary arts. While attending the institute, Ryan worked under the late Chef Jamie Shannon of Commander’s Palace in New Orleans who instilled the importance of service in a restaurant, and Chef Anne Kearney of Peristyle, who focused on detail and perfection. Between these two chefs, a strong foundation of southern cooking and technique was set in place.

Peg.lisa.2 (640x427)

Lisa Annitti grew up in an Italian family in Northern New Jersey where large meals and loud discussion were always the norm. Her father’s favorite expression was “It’ll burn the nastiness out of you!” referring to the spicy Italian dishes made at home. Ironically he owned a coffee shop called Nick’s Sweet Shop” so Lisa truly did grow up as a “Kid in a Candy Store”

With a degree in Accounting/Finance from Rutgers University, Lisa, neither a chef nor a cook, began eating her way through the best restaurants that NYC had to offer. After becoming disillusioned with the business world and always wanting to be an actress she headed to Los Angeles to work in the film business. She quickly found work as a Production Accountant and landed a job on the movie “Super” in Shreveport, Louisiana.
