Meet The Chef
I'm Chef Sabrina, and I'm here to give you interesting, delicious, global comfort food and amazing out-of-the-box sweet treats.
My goal is to broaden your palette, give you a surprise in every dish, and show that soul food isn't only found in "Soul Food".
I grew up in Detroit, MI. It's a diverse, amazing, eclectic city that hustles harder than any other, and that no nonsense work ethic was instilled in me. My parents are from the South, so I grew up with the "Soul Food" staples, and I learned the basics of cooking at an early age.
In 2009, I moved to Houston, TX and my culinary world exploded!
I enrolled in The Art Institute of Houston and began learning varying global cuisines.
Houston is a melting pot, and seemingly every culture is highlighted in their culinary scene. My love of the Middle Eastern, Asian and South Asian cuisines flourished. I was able to see that other chefs of color weren't staying inside their given cultural cuisine boxes, but instead, were stepping outside and creating amazing, unique, fusion food. I wanted to do the same. I was fortunate enough to be taught by world class chefs, work alongside world renown chefs, and grow abundantly as a creative culinarian with my own style.
In 2014, I started my baking business, Eclectic Cake Company, as a respite from my repetitive kitchen days. I didn't care for baking while in school, but found it to be a zen space for me, and a chance to get my creative juices flowing. I committed to teaching myself the nuances of baking, and I've since created amazing sweets for countless people, and I still love it just as much as when I started.
In 2017, I moved to Los Angeles where I got to cook for A-list celebrities, work in studios I've only seen on tv, and experience a completely different, easy-going vibe in the kitchen world.
In 2020, I started Mirage: A Traveling Supper Club, and began Eclectic Eats: Sweet & Savory.
In my culinary career, I've held every line position possible, I've broken barriers, and I've surprised myself. I've cooked for former Presidents, mayors, celebrities, a multitude of hungry everyday people, and I'm still constantly striving for better.
I've created Eclectic Eats to spread my love of cookery, art, and science, to you. To expand my repertoire, and to be able to provide amazing, gourmet food and sweets to your table.
Fine dining style fusion food is what I do, so expect exciting, expect different, expect more.
Eat with your eyes.
