As chef, restauranteur, recipe developer, cookbook author and mom, food isn’t my passion — it’s my compass and the touch point to everything I do.

About Claudia

Food was in my blood long before I was born. I’m certain it was passed down through the generations of skilled cooks in my rich multicultural family and intensified as my family and community expanded. My path has taken me on many adventures starting as a young New York City chef and restaurateur at age 19. My journey continued and I spent over 8 years at Food Network as the Test Kitchen Director and most recently at HelloFresh as Principal Chef and Head of Recipe Development. Together with my years as a chef and caterer, I’ve been feeding America mouthwatering meals for decades.


Being behind the scenes has offered me a unique perspective but I’m excited to share my kitchen wisdom, recipes and honest approach to hospitality with you. My entrepreneurial spirit is being channeled into my current projects including, Mill & Main Restaurant, located in Kerhonkson, New York, and my first cookbook, 52 Weeks of Dinner.


My passion and commitment to food and hospitality goes beyond business and as an Executive Board member of Food Education Fund, making time to share my experience and knowledge through service and mentoring is an integral part of my life. I’ve worn many hats and dirtied a lot of aprons along the way and each have their own story to tell. And what better place to tell those stories than in the heart beat of the house, in the kitchen with friends and family…that’s where the magic happens.

Mill & Main Restaurant

Mill & Main is a farm to table restaurant, featuring a seasonal menu celebrating local producers with a heart to soul focus. We offer a full service bar stocked with local beers, small batch spirits and natural wines; a coffee bar open daily with a wide range of hot and cold beverages, fresh snacks and ready-to-eat prepared foods; and an indoor grocery & food stall market featuring local artisan producers.

52 Weeks of Dinner

52 Weeks of Dinner is a cookbook that will show people how to create “meal kit” worthy dinners without the expense. I’ve been inspiring and motivating home cooks for over 25 years. This book will be chock full with my secrets, tips, strategies and culinary know-how so that you can create budget-conscious, delicious meals every weeknight of the year with no stress, no hassle, no panic.
