Chef Kristen Trevino
Chef Kristin Trevino began her love for food at a young age, coming from a family of five, being the middle child and naturally wanting to please the people around her. Food was always the best tool. Kristin later studied business at Utah State University; working as an office manager, she decided the monotony wasn’t for her and changed her major to culinary arts. Seeking the best education, Kristin enrolled at Scottsdale Culinary Institute, Le Cordon Bleu in Scottsdale, Arizona, in 2001.
While attending school in Arizona she worked under an incredible chef, Brian Ford. With Chef Ford, Kristin was able to apply her schooling and training in a real-world culinary atmosphere. With the French influence of Kristin’s training and Chef Ford’s contemporary Mediterranean style she came into her own. After relocating to northern Utah Chef Trevino teamed up with a small catering company where she began using her business background along with her culinary skills.
While in Utah, Kristin found her love for teaching others culinary skills as she frequently taught cooking classes. Desiring a slower pace Chef Trevino moved back to her hometown of Burley, Idaho, with her husband and two children. Even with the slower pace Kristin has still managed to write several articles for Southern Idaho Living Magazine, start her own catering company and also teach a cooking class periodically.
