Meet Chef Minolta
Minolta is an artist based in Los Angeles, California. She believes in the interconnection of all life and strives to display this harmony in her work through a variety of creative mediums. Minolta sets an intention for every meal to transfer love energy and express gratitude for our bountiful Mother earth.
Chef Minolta began pursuing her passion for the culinary arts as a child. As Grandma Sallie's special helper, she spent most days in the kitchen learning traditional Southern cooking. Next following the spicy aromas of Berbere and sweet onions, she gained knowledge of Eritrean Dishes from her father. Her mother, a former model, instilled in Minolta the value of making healthy cuisine choices. Chef Minolta decided to try a vegan lifestyle in 2016 after moving to Los Angeles, CA. Inspired by her new surroundings and the wide availability of plant-based options; motivated by a deep sense of connection to animal friends, love for the environment and her own body, she soon realized that a vegan diet is the best option for ourselves and our planet.

Currently offering personal chef services in Los Angeles, CA and around the world with her company La Reine Des Fleurs (The Queen Of Flowers), Chef Minolta specializes in Vegan Southern, Afrocentric and health conscious styles of cuisine.
