Did you know that there is a phenomenal chef in OKC that is quietly bringing OKC world class experience and more importantly, FOOD! Â Christa Carretero is the Founder and Chef of Cooking Girl and University of Oklahoma grad. Â Her training and expertise is exceptional and if you really knew who she has worked under and been mentored by, you’d rush to get to know her. Â I love that she came back to Oklahoma to do “her own thing!” After graduating in 2004, she moved to Washington, D.C. where she was hired by Chef Jose Andres to work with Think Food Group. She started her culinary tour at Think Food Group working at Jaleo and then moving on to help open Oyamel. Â Christa’s last and final stop on the tour was at Cafe Atlantico, Minibar where she spent four years working under her mentor Katsuya Fukushima. Â Check out her – Personal Chef Services – and stay tuned for more from Nosey Parker on the fabulous Christa Carretero!
Christa continues to keep up with current food trends. Â She still works from time to time with Think Food Group and has worked with other chefs such as Guillermo Pernot, Douglas Rodriguez and Diana Kennedy. Â She has also traveled to Spain to learn the craft of cheese-making.
