JACQUELINE  BURNS

Founder/Owner

“The relationship between client, collaborator and the earth inspires me into every new beginning.”

Hailing from a multi-disciplinary artistic lineage, her childhood was immersed in farm to table style meals and found-object art installations. As a competitive equestrian, Jacqueline developed a strong and versatile skill set that informs her leadership style as she guides both her creative and culinary teams as well as her clients.

JONATHAN VEENKER

Executive Chef

Our Executive Chef Jonathan Veenker has an extensive background in special event catering and has worked in some of the city’s finest restaurants, including Acquerello, Central Kitchen and flour+water.

His food philosophy derives from curating the finest ingredients available, with a love for all things smoked, pickled, fermented or otherwise carefully preserved. When he’s not in the kitchen he enjoys playing keyboards, composing music and hiking through coastal areas.
