  Beeta Mohajeri - Executive Sous Chef    @chef.mbeetz   Chef Beeta comes to us from Canada! Majoring in Biology at UW in Seattle, she quickly switched paths and followed her hunger. She learned Farm to table on Whidbey Island, working with farmers and other Chef’s for the freshest quality ingredients. She’s since trained at Commanders Palace in New Orleans, and made her way to Orange County to pursue her brand “BeetzEats”. She’s a celebrity Private Chef (Simon Cowell, Tyra Banks & Leonardo DiCaprio to name a few…) She’s your girl when it comes to intimate dinner parties & smaller catering gigs.
