Hello, my name is Chandler Tomayko. I am a 29 year old life-loving, always-laughing, dance-to-my-own-music, likes-trying-new-things and the color green, takes-dark-chocolate-over-white-chocolate-any-day, holiday-loving fool! What you should really know about me is: I am who I am because of my mother, a woman who you would be very lucky to meet. She is the very definition of a loving mother, best friend and strong, inspiring role model. Among the many incredible lessons she taught me, maybe one of the most important is, there is always a way to accomplish your goals, you just have to find that way.
The second thing you should know about me is that I was born to cook. I have come a long way from rolling out pie dough in Mimi’s kitchen. I run my own culinary consulting business, freelance as a photographer, travel to learn and am working on building an empire. I am a chef with a thirst for knowledge that is insatiable. I constantly buy unfamiliar ingredients or products and mostly learn from trial and error. My favorite tote flaunts a pattern of silver spoons and my rain boots are covered with a citrus fruit slice design.
I love food. I love culinary arts. I love to cook. There are few things like more than walking into a stainless steel kitchen in my pressed chef coat, black pants and red shoes. But my red shoes are another matter….
