Chef Lauren O'Leary | #ChefObsessed

Stacks Image 370425
My name is Lauren Rose and I am passionate about all things food and wine. I spend my days working as a private chef, sommelier, and cheesemonger in Northern California. I specialize in seasonal, Mediterranean faire with my own millennial twist. Having worked in the wine industry for the last five years as an Italian wine importer, sommelier, and educator, I have learned that wine is subjective. I believe every meal should be celebrated and wine should be approachable. I create dishes and wine pairings my way, which isn't always by the book. I host weekly pop up dinners and classes all over Northern California- stay in the loop and grab a seat at my next one here.

Chef James Lehman | #ChefObsessed

Stacks Image 370331
Chef James Lehman’s interest in the culinary arts developed at an early age, thanks to sharing many moments in the kitchen alongside his mother Toni.  His epicurious obsession would eventually lead to work at Bouchon in Yountville, California; the original French bistro developed by Chef Thomas Keller. 

To further his education, Chef James attended the famed Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York. Post graduation, he assumed the role of Executive Sous Chef at New World Home Cooking near Woodstock, New York.  Under the supervision of Chef Ric Orlando, he learned to cook "real food" with big flavors. 

Upon returning to his home state of California, Chef James assumed the role of Executive Chef at Ironstone Vineyards in Murphys. During his time at Ironstone Vineyards, Chef James taught cooking classes, prepared and presented winemaker dinners, organized special events, and left a lasting mark on the Kautz family, his coworkers, and the community. 

When not preparing meals in the #ChefObsessed kitchen, Chef James works in the healthcare industry, managing the food service for patients and hospital visitors alike.

Chef River Klass | #ChefObsessed

Stacks Image 370387
River Klass loves horses, was brought up in Connecticut, and learned to eat in Paris. His first job at 14 was in a small café in Westport, Connecticut. He has worked in restaurants ever since, traveling to such places as Philadelphia, Los Angeles, and Paris. It was in the kitchens of Paris where River discovered the artistry of cooking. In 1992 at the age of 29, River opened his first restaurant, Grounds, in the charming village of Murphys, CA. While cooking at Grounds, he prepared many fun, quick dishes for the kitchen staff, which became the flame behind his next restaurant Firewood; located just twenty feet away from Grounds on Main Street. After 25 years of walking through the same door, River continues to discover, adapt, and deliver the finest experience to every guest.
