Chef Carla Lopez- Vidal is from Lima, Peru and taught herself to cook at eight years old. Her passion for cooking runs through her veins. Carla moved to the United States fourteen years ago, with a Bachelor’s degree in interior design. Though she enjoyed what she was doing, she didn’t love it. So ten years ago Carla decided to make a career change and wanted to pursue being a chef. As a wife and a mother of two young boys, Carla stayed motivated, with the help of her supportive family, in making her dreams a reality.
Carla received her culinary training at the International Culinary Center in Campbell CA. There she had the opportunity to enlighten her peers about the evolution of Peruvian gastronomy. She introduced ingredients from Peru to the French kitchen, leaving her mark as a new up and coming chef in the culinary industry.
Carla enjoys working with pastry on her spare time and has grown to be exceptional at it. She creates and designs cakes of all sizes for any occasion.
Chef Kiah Fuller is from San Bernardino, CA. From a young age, Kiah showed a talent for cooking. Her grandmother, Shirley Fontenette and her mother, Patricia Fuller, are her biggest inspirations in the kitchen. Unlike other kids her age, at age 14, Kiah was for certain what she wanted to do for the rest of her life. She wanted to bring people together around her food.
Though Kiah had a challenging upbringing living in a city of immense poverty, but she didn’t let where she came from define where she was headed. Kiah went on to Pepperdine University and obtained a Bachelors of Business Administration. It was at Pepperdine where she had the opportunity to study abroad in Florence, Italy for a year. In Florence, she was able to work in close collaboration with an Italian Personal Chef, where Kiah fell in love with Italian cuisine.
After Pepperdine, Kiah went on to study at the International Culinary Center in Campbell, CA. It was here where Kiah refined her culinary skills and became a culinary professional fulfilling her externship at the Plumed Horse, a Michelin Star restaurant in Downtown Saratoga. Which later extended to be a full-time position as a pastry line cook after graduation.
