Debbie Dietmeyer

Debbie Dietmeyer is a visionary with the ability to make her dreams come to life. Her bubbly personality coupled with her determination and follow-through lends to her magic. Debbie wears many hats— she is a trained artist, former public-school teacher, and top-selling REALTOR, but hospitality and creating beautiful spaces is at her core. She envisioned and designed The Glorious Fig through each iteration of the renovation with this dream in mind—to teach and gather. For as long as her friends and family members can remember, she has wanted an intimate place where she could teach cooking classes to kids and adults alike and gather with friends and family outside of her home.

The Glorious Fig is a tribute to the heart of home and the intimacy and sense of belonging it brings through gathering.

Welcome!

HEAD CHEF

Stephanie Reece

Stephanie Reece loves the beauty of food, but she especially savors the moments when it tastes so good all you can do is laugh with your mouth full.

When Stephanie was seventeen, she was thrown into a job cooking chipped beef and toast at a retirement home quickly followed by several years cooking at a summer camp. It wasn’t until she moved to Houston and met a gentlemen instrumental in rebuilding Berlin’s restaurants and hotels after the wall came down, she began to truly understand why anyone would pour their entire being into creating an experience around food.

At that moment, her journey began as a self-taught cook. First at Gateway Canyons Resort, then at Il Bistro Italiano, and in recent years, she owned and worked as a Personal Chef at TheFullTable. Stephanie believes good food can be both beautiful and simple.

Along with being Head Chef, Stephanie also manages social media for the Glorious Fig.

Griff Chiono

Griff Chiono grew up between Portland, Oregon, and Grand Junction, Colorado. The bulk of his culinary career was spent in Seattle and Aspen after graduating from culinary school in Denver in 2006. Most recently, he was the Chef De Cuisine at Bin 707. Before that, he worked as a Sous Chef at il Bistro Italiano, an authentic Italian restaurant located on Main Street. His passion for creating in the kitchen was passed onto him by his grandmother who taught him how to cook. His specialties include charcuterie & butchery and seafood.

Griff is currently attending nursing school. When he’s not studying or cooking, you can find him hiking, mountain biking, and fishing with his pups.

Fun fact: Griff worked as a Wilderness Guide in Alaska before venturing into the culinary arts.
