I am Chef Celeste Gustafson, Founder & Executive Chef of Celeste’s Natural Kitchen, and I believe people can heal themselves with food. One of my greatest joys is cooking food that is delicious and supremely nourishing and that brings the joy of eating back into the lives of those on restrictive diets.
Along my path to becoming a chef I attended the California School of Herbal Studies, led workshops for herb companies, guided wild edible plant walks, taught herbal medicine making, and spent many years refining my cooking. I honed my cooking skills by cooking thousands of scratch-made creative meals for a wide variety of diets for over 25 years. I am self-taught, which means that I focused on alternative cooking methods not taught in traditional culinary schools.
Together with my team of extraordinary chefs, we are committed to consciously sourcing the highest quality ingredients, challenging ourselves to continually expand our menu options, and crafting every dish as if it’s for someone we love.
