In 2020 she was part of Wolfgang Puck’s culinary team for the 92nd Governor’s Ball and Oscars Red Carpet, and staged at Evan Funke’s renowned restaurant Felix. Most recently she interned with Chef Justin Werner of Trust/Detention in Santa Ana, who’s resume includes Noma while it held the title of “Best Restaurant In The World”, Craft for Tom Colicchio, and Thomas Keller’s Per Se. Amy has continued he work in the. Central Coast as a private chef and artistic director for Epicurean Santa Barbara. She loves the traditions of the the old world, and thrives on implementing contemporary techniques and creating full flavors and unique dishes that delight and enlighten her guests.

The Cuisine….

This experience will be a multi-course dinner, with 9 courses of shared plates featuring Amy’s mix of classic, modern and international cuisine. Expect to see a variety of locally sourced produce, as well seafood, pasta, and red meat, and definitely multiple dessert courses; all with fresh and delectable flavors.

What is a “Trust” Dinner?

A trust dinner is an upscale multi-course meal (5+ Courses), where guests put their trust into the Chef, who will be preparing a one of a kind dinner revealed upon arrival! Why no menu in advance? Because: #1.) we like to surprise our guests, and #2.) we want to remove any pre-conceived notions regarding what the dishes will taste like, or look like. This is part of the experience, and part of the fun.

What we can tell you is that the food will be fantastic. We are featuring only chefs who have inspired us, who have shown great passion and remarkable skill and pedigree; chefs who have a distinctive culinary voice. Their biographies and the event description will provide sufficient details about the dinner; (for example: Mediterranean, Modern, or Vegetable-driven). The team at Epicurean Santa Barbara will know the menu in advance, so we can notify the chef of dietary restrictions, and answer any questions regarding the dinner.

This Trust dinner is BYOB. You heard us right! In the event reminder, we will offer wine pairing suggestions for the dinner, and you are welcome to bring whatever bottles (or spirits) you see fit!

As these are specialized menus, modifications are politely declined. But please include any serious food allergies in your registration notes.
