After graduating from UCSB with a degree in Sociology, Amanda moved to San Francisco to pursue her education in Culinary Arts at Le Cordon Bleu. While attending culinary school she worked in reservations, and as an assistant to the accountant at Restaurant Gary Danko. Upon graduating, she then met Jason and Jordan while working her way up the ranks as an intern, then line cook at La Folie Restaurant. Following that with a short stint as a line cook at google, under Jordan as her chef.
Taking some time off from the back of the house, Amanda decided to learn more about wine.
