Fun Facts About Kristi Ritchey: (Source: greenleafchopshop.com)

1)   A native of Williamsport, PA, Chef Ritchey first caught the cooking bug while working at a small, traditional Italian restaurant in the city. The owner of the restaurant saw so much potential in her that he urged her to pursue a professional career in the culinary arts.

2) After attending culinary school at Pennsylvania College of Technology, Chef Ritchey relocated to California's Napa Valley, where she first landed a cooking position with Restaurant Pinot Blanc, the area's flagship restaurant from Chef Joachim Splichal's Los Angeles-based Patina Group. There, under the tutelage of Chef Greg Stillman, Chef Ritchey was promoted to the position of Sous Chef in less than a year.

3) To this day, Chef Ritchey credits Chef Stillman as one of the greatest positive influences on her cooking style and philosophy. From Pinot Blanc, the Patina Group relocated Chef Ritchey to Palm Springs, for the opening of Eat at The Desert in the chic Hotel Zoso and then soon thereafter she was asked to assist with the opening of the company's Eat on Sunset with Chef Gary Menes.
