We had the good fortune of connecting with Nadia Dennison and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Nadia, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
I’ve been cooking since the tender age of 10. I started my own business because I’ve always loved to cook and I got tired of punching somebody else’s clock. I left Cedars Sinai Medical Center in.2016 to pursue my own business. I got tired of calling off work to do catering jobs.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
It wasn’t easy, but I’ve learned nothing on life worth something is a cake walk. As long as you keep God first, All things are possible!!

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I would cook, and maybe go to The Griddle Cafe, Mastros, go to Malibu beach. The Beverly center, on Sunday go to church.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I give all the glory to God!! And my children.
