Lisa Ruoff - Organic Chef

For over 25 years, I have been proudly weaving my culinary magic as Chef Lisa. I have owned and run kitchens from such places as off-grid Alaskan wilderness lodges to rural Colorado ski towns to a remote Vermont B&B. Accolades include write ups in publications such as EdibleAspen, and winner of National Geographic Adventure magazines “best places to eat in Carbondale CO” for Eco-Goddess, my restaurant offering all organic cuisine. Also adding another 7 years in the organic food service with her 1820’s farmhouse Bed & Breakfast, Faywood Gardens, I offered organic cooking classes as well as full service catering.

“Being a great chef is so much more than being able to make excellent food. For me, it’s about knowing where the ingredients come from. Is it local? Is it chemical-free? Is it sustainably harvested? Does the money that I paid for it go back to the community? How far does it travel to get to me and what kind of carbon footprint is that? And, of course, it has to be cost effective. When all of these aspects line up, the alchemy in the kitchen begins. Personally, my passion is environmentalism, and it comes through me and into the world through my cooking.” (Lisa Ruoff)
