Chef and Proprietor

Chef Alexis Starkey brings the precision of French technique, the Italian devotion to fresh, locally-sourced ingredients, and a passion for international flavors to Farm to Feast. With a life-long passion for food and entertaining, Alexis left her public relations career to study at the French Culinary Institute (FCI) in New York and La Scuola Internazionale di Cucina Italiana in Parma, Italy so she could turn her passion into a profession.

International Training and a Dedication to the Slow Food Movement

Before founding Farm to Feast, Alexis cooked in one of the leading kitchens in Northern Italy, Ristorante Zum Lowen in Blozano, a restaurant led by one of the first female chefs in Italy to earn a Michelin star. Alexis has also received instruction in Turkish cuisine in Istanbul, regional Mexican cooking in Oaxaca, and Southern German food in Bavaria. She relishes bringing the extraordinary flavors of these and other far-flung culinary traditions to her clients in the Washington area. Alexis’ experiences in Italy, particularly her work at Zum Lowen and her exposure to the Slow Food movement, made a deep impression that informs Farm to Feast’s commitment to organic, biodynamic and locally-sourced ingredients.
