THE TEAM KEEPING THE OVENS ON
Martine has been cooking for as long as she can remember. Her love of travel probably has more to do with the opportunity to experience different flavors then it does with any touristy sights. She acquired a Culinary Arts degree from the Institute of Culinary Education in NYC in 2004 and spent the ensuing years cooking for private parties. After spending the past year traveling and cooking around the world from Europe, to Asia, and Latin America she's gathered a wealth of knowledge on ingredients and flavor combinations that she can't wait to share. Oh, and she LOVES whisky so don't be surprised if after a day of cooking a bottle comes out to end the day right.

Ms. Igharo received her M.S. in Sustainability Management from Columbia.
