Chef Ariana Sherlock

Growing up, food brought our family together with everyone helping to plan the next meal. For me, cooking with family and friends brings great joy! I feel so blessed to help clients enjoy great food in a way that fits with their lifestyle.

After attending the Le Cordon Bleu Western Culinary Institute, in Portland, Oregon, I worked at the Multnomah Athletic Club for a couple of years. There, I honed my knife skills and learned how to cook in a professional kitchen. After that, I spent over six years in the Oregon wine industry where I wrote recipe pairings and catered events. I have spent the last several years raising my two young children while continuing to develop recipes for wine club shipments and local magazines. Speaking of wine, check out our virtual wine tasting events!

I live in Newcastle with my husband, daughter, and son who are all spoiled with my home cooking. It is also my honor to serve my community as a city council members and Deputy Mayor of Newcastle. 

I love meal planning and working with clients around their specific needs. Additionally, I like to challenge my clients to try new things. Having spent my entire life in the Pacific Northwest, I am grateful for the abundance of local ingredients available to use in my kitchen and yours!
