Kari Chellouf

As a little girl, Kari Chellouf was entranced by watching her mum bake breads, cakes, pies, and cookies from scratch. Eventually, she grew up and went to culinary school so that she could learn in kitchens while inventing recipes that could be passed along. Her cooking style often features comfort foods that have been reworked with healthier ingredients or substitutions for allergies.

Genuine love and appreciation for beautiful ingredients, and the opportunity to share them with good company is what fuels Kari's motivation. She sleeps next to a stack of cookbooks, is a ravenous dessert fiend, and loves to test out new recipes on her coworkers when they are hung-over on weekend mornings.

Kari is a graduate of Northwest Culinary Academy. More of her recipes and musings can be found on her food blog, I Heart Big Flavour!
