Two Cooks Hang Up Their Aprons
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
San Luis Obispo, CA (October 4, 2016) Two Cooks Catering will hang up their aprons permanently at the end of 2016. Starting January 1st Chef Russell begins a new job as Executive Pastry Chef for a local restaurant group. Owned by Heather & Russell Thomas of San Luis Obispo, Two Cooks Catering has been in business for 10 ½ years.
“We’ve had a wonderful run,” said Heather Thomas, owner & spokesperson. “But Russell was presented with an opportunity that couldn’t be turned down. We’re excited that he is going back to his passion, pastries.” Chef Russell apprenticed under Master Pastry Chef Christophe Feyt while working at Le Meridian Hotel in Boston, baked the dessert course for the James Beard Foundation’s dinner in New York City, was pastry chef for Chef Elka Gilmore’s Elka in San Francisco, and even had the privilege of cooking for the famed Julia Child while working at Lumiere in Newton, MA.
“We’re finishing up the year on a high note, and are pleased with all we have accomplished while we’ve been in business,” Thomas continued. “We’re finishing out our 2016 contracts and are selling off our equipment.”
Chef Heather plans to use the newly acquired time to write. She has a cookbook and compilation of stories to finish, new recipes to develop and of course continue with her food blog sloCooking.
Two Cooks Catering makes global cuisine with a conscience. Their exclusive use of local farmers’ market produce, fresh meats, and local seafood brings out the best of the Central Coast’s exceptional foods.
