Welcome

Hello! and welcome to Girly Chefs, ALL are welcome here! You don’t have to be a Girly Chef to be in our community, it is for everyone. Girly Chef Mastermind is accepting applications and the coaching calendar is open and we have availability for you now! Make sure you check out those pages!

I’m Lanette and Girly Chefs is my business. I live in a very tiny town in Washington State. However, I travel for events all over the world. I’m married, to my true love, Travis, who is my world.  Together we are proud parents of 3 amazing kids Bryson, Oztin, and Kimo, and a beautiful granddaughter.

We have a food blog which I’m over the moon excited about! I love to teach people and show them how to incorporate ‘tricks of the trade’ that I have picked up along the way.  Sharing my gadgets, that I know work and are not just sales gimmicks.  Bringing inspiring recipes used in many kitchens around the globe to life, for not just the restaurant chef, but for the housewife cook.  I’m also thrilled to share my love of beauty with you and the inspirations that create what I love about what I do.  The spectacular awe-inspiring details that you witness in an event.  From the pretty ruffles, lit candles, and floating sparkle to the wood grain and floral ice sculptures.  I want to Thank You for stopping to browse around!  I’m also a great resource for information, so if you have questions that are food, event, or business related, please ask and I will do my best to get back to you!

Contessa Catering is our catering division and we have been in the food and beverage industry for 23 years, working at several upscale resorts such as the Royal Hawaiian, Oahu, The Kapalua Bay Hotel , Maui, and the Ritz Carlton, Phoenix. At these resorts, our chefs have worked side by side with some of the best chefs in the country.  I graduated from the Art Institute of Seattle with a full degree in Food Science.  I have been on several food expeditions throughout Mexico and many regions of the US.

I really, truly, love what I do.
