Chef Rebecca LaMalfa grew up on a farm in Chico, California with her life revolving around food. Her father was a second-generation farmer while her mother made canning apple butter and peach preserves a yearly family affair. As a result, LaMalfa inherently gravitated towards cooking, and her early experiences with food continue to shape the way she cooks today: taking seasonal ingredients and treating them in the most thoughtful way possible.
LaMalfa, a Bravo Top Chef veteran, joins us at Google to discuss her move to Detroit, her family circle of fellow chef’s and her time at the helm of The Standby, Detroit’s coolest hotspot.
