Originally from the Philippines, Marivic grew up in the Northern part of the county, at a small town laid on the valley floor surrounded with high protective mountains.
Her love for cooking and fresh ingredients started at a young age. While strong winds and heavy rains were blocked in the region where she grew up, varieties of produce thrived year round where every ingredient was meticulously hand selected by her mother.
Trained at Le Cordon Bleu College in Los Angeles and completed her externship at a 2-starred Michelin restaurant in France. Upon returning, she worked at a beautiful ocean front resort in Laguna Beach where she learned efficiency from high volume of food preparations for weddings and corporate events.
Marivic’s cuisine has a classical foundation while displaying a touch of modern overtone; showcasing local ingredients, combining simple and stimulating flavors.
Marivic is serving in Southern California and available further afield.
