Little did Lisa Cornish know when she was learning to cook in her Sicilian grandmother’s kitchen that the skills she was learning would lead her to the other side of the globe. Her culinary journey taken her to New York and, most recently, Las Vegas, where she has appeared on KVBC Channel 3 and as a celebrity judge in various Las Vegas cooking events. Through Chef@YourHome, Chef Lisa redefines the idea of the personal chef, crafting in-home meals to match to client’s events. Some of her popular menus include an Asian-inflected spread of miso soup, pan-seared sesame salmon, and chilled Thai-style summer rolls; alternatively, the Mediterranean buffet plies diners with olive, feta and cucumber skewers, chicken francese, and penne pasta in pink vodka sauce. Chef Lisa shares her mastery of the kitchen either by preheating the oven without building a fire or through cooking classes conducted in students’ homes or one of her own personal kitchens.
