Hi! I’m Leigh (Hyatt) Anderson. I’m a Los Angeles-based private chef and food blogger.
I grew up in my mother’s kitchen making Kraft mac and cheese, and every recipe on the side of the Bisquick box. My brothers and I loved to play restaurant, and I proudly made dinner for my family a few nights a week.
Before instagram, pinterest, or even the internet as we know it (yikes, I’m old!), I was watching Julia Child on PBS and absorbing every tip and technique I could. I knew early on that I was going to be a chef.
After high school I moved to Los Angeles to attend Le Cordon Bleu Culinary Institute. I spent the next few years working in some of this city’s best restaurants: Michael Voltaggio’s Ink. and Thomas Keller’s Bouchon Bistro. Since then I have been working as a private chef creating healthy dinners for families.
I love this city so much. LA is teeming with culinary inspiration from the farmers markets and restaurants to the street side taco trucks. If you’re looking for me you can probably find me in Weho sipping a margarita with my wonderful boyfriend and our sweet pup Theo.
All of this experience has led to the creation this blog where I’m sharing my tips and tricks to make cooking easy and enjoyable. There’s no greater way to express your love for your friends and family than by getting in the kitchen and preparing them a meal.
Lets Be Friends!
