Chef Emily Moore's Emily's Kitchen has provided a wide variety of culinary services to the Pacific Northwest since the mid 1990's. It will soon be providing the same services to our Southern Oregon area.

From an early background ranging from gardening, raising animals and preserving food in the backwoods of Canada to becoming a camp bush cook serving international cuisine to drillers and geologists in interior and Southeast Alaska, Emily's Kitchen chef/owner Emily Moore has become one of the region's premier chefs.

She has extensive banquet and catering experience, with Emily's Kitchen, Baci Catering and as a hotel and restaurant Executive and Banquet Chef.  Her gorgeous and delicious presentations have graced the tables of many of the Northwest luminary families: the Nordstroms, the Benaroyas, the Alhadeffs, Bill and Melinda Gates, and many others.

She has taught cuisine at the college level for many years, most recently for four years at Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts in Seattle.
