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.
