Meet The Team

Lilly Allison Steirer

As a personal chef in San Luis Obispo, CA, I prepared meals inspired by local farms and with my client’s mystery produce boxes. Moving to Colorado in 2006, I continued my business, Bella Cuisine Personal Chef Service in the Denver area. In 2010, I created the online subscription service Lilly’s Table featuring my recipes and seasonal meal plans. After my first child was born, I moved to Tucson, AZ where I was the coordinator for the first two years of Tucson Food Day. While in Arizona, I taught cooking classes for daycare providers through the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona. Returning to Colorado, I helped start the Neighbor to Market vegetable consignment program at the Edgewater Market & Music. My family’s small urban farm, including chickens, a hive and gardens, inspired our experiment to eat local for a year. My kids loved it! At the same time, I became a Denver Urban Gardens: Master Community Gardener and started to teach gardening classes. It was a natural fit to bring my love of cooking + gardening together and I am eager to bring more kids from the garden to the table through Slow Food.
