Meet Rina Kamkhagi, Head Chef
Rina's passion for cooking began when she was just a child. Growing up in Lebanon, Rina was taught by her mother to create delectable Lebanese dishes and pastries. From working closely with her mother, her love for cooking and food flourished. As she got older, Rina realized her passion and natural talent for cooking was more than just a hobby when she crafted a pistachio-filled chocolate pastry to serve over Thanksgiving. Her friends were astounded by the delicate texture and full flavor of her pastry, and she was convinced to replicate the pastry for a friend's wedding. Inspired to sharpen her craft, Rina completed specialty courses with local Houston chef and chocolatier, Ana Gomes and then went on to attend The Chocolate Academy in Sainte Hyacinthe, in Montreal, Quebec, with world-renowned chocolatier Christophe Morel.
Rina is all about the personal touch. She puts her heart into every event she caters for, whether she's creating dessert tables or doing full-service catering, she strives to make your special event as memorable as possible.
