Chef Rachel De Moss

Born and raised in southern California and now a Seattle personal chef. Seeing the show ‘Great Chefs of the World’ on television at an early age encouraged me to pursue a culinary career. I graduated from the Art Institute of Los Angeles with a BS in Culinary Management in 2006.

After nearly 2 decades in the kitchen, my experience and dedication have allowed me to develop a diverse set of skills ranging from banquet serving and event management, pastry arts, writing specialty menus, to managing and developing business operations. 

I tend to focus on flavorful dishes cooked with simple, fresh & local ingredients and love to cook, honoring my Mexican heritage. Working around dietary restrictions to provide amazing meals suitable for any diet is a passion of mine, particularly vegetarian meals!  My favorite thing to cook is also my favorite thing to eat — breakfast! As a chef, one of the best parts of my job is experimenting with new dishes, providing new experiences, and seeing the reaction of satisfied diners.

If you are looking for a personal chef in Seattle to cook for you, it would be my pleasure to serve create amazing food for your family!
