Description
The accomplished Elizabeth is the rising star head chef of Reclamation. She is steadfast, skilled, empathetic, yet daring and an unflinching leader. She commands the room. After years of rigorous yet often vituperative learning under some of Europe’s top chefs, she wondered if she could instead lead her own dining project to success in a new way. She leaned on her affluent parents to help fund her start of Reclamation, a take on mixing indigenous ingredients and dishes with French fine dining technique. Much buzz has been generated since its launch, but she still feels she could push herself and her team harder. Perhaps it’s the elusive 2 stars on the Michelin guide off the back of a positive review from Aldrich she's seeking—or perhaps it’s something more.
