Pure Natural Kitchen's Alexis Colantonio has prepared food for 20 years in a Mediterranean household. This high-energy environment consisted of three generations of cooking styles using homegrown garden foods, homemade wine and locally grown products whenever possible. Pastas, breads, jams, jellies, pickled products, cured meats and all types of preserved food goods were either prepared at home or by neighbors. Similarly, finfish, shellfish and wild foods such as mushrooms, edible flowers, beach plums, sea rocket, dandelion greens and the like were caught or gathered in season and incorporated into daily table fare.
Alexis attended an accredited culinary school in New York City, and worked at the five-star restaurant L’Etoile in Edgartown, Massachusetts before launching Pure Natural Kitchen in 2010.. Her attention to detail and the specific needs of her clients gives you the benefit of a private chef with restaurant and natural food training. Consultations with medical professionals, dietary specialists and nutritionists insure that only the highest quality foods are used, expertly prepared and honed to meet the exacting needs of each client group.
Alexis received her Bachelor Degree from Skidmore College, her culinary education from The Natural Gourmet Institute and is studied mental health and well being at The One Thought Institute of London. She lives in Harvard, Massachusetts with her three children, husband and two dogs.
