Sarah Angileri, Chef-Instructor
As a kid, she narrated her own “cooking shows” at home in Franklin, MI. Several detours later, Chef Sarah found herself at culinary school in Ireland learning how to fillet fish, cut lamb forequarters, and make cheese. Thankfully, a bit further down the path, she landed at our kitchen door. As a chef, she is inspired by la cucina povera (Italian peasant cuisine) and marries her passion for old school technique, kitchen resourcefulness, and classic Italian ingredients to teach and create beautiful meals. Her dream food destination is Taormina, Sicilia. She’s a pasta expert, avid biker, and champion of the humble, scrap-saving spatula. If Sarah’s not at the kitchen, you’ll probably find her enjoying a great meal at home, doing freelance advertising work, or writing about food. You may also recognize her as one of the members of the Matafame trio–the Italy-inspired pop-up dinner sensation taking over the northside of Chicago.
