3 Reasons to Travel with Camille Becerra
We love Camille Becerra because she's not merely a chef – she's a force of nature at the intersection of food, art, and culture. She wants food to look good, taste good, and make you feel good. From appearing on "Top Chef" to cooking in a monastery to opening and running restaurants (Paloma in Brooklyn, Navy in Soho, James Beard Award-winning DeMaria in Nolita), Camille understands that food is art, and that great design nurtures the soul.
Camille cooks for a reason – to encourage the creative power of her diners, with a heavy focus of healthful, natural and seasonal ingredients, to teach new ways of not only cooking but of thinking about good clean food.
She's an Explorer
Camille nourishes her creativity by diving into new cultures and new places. Like Portugal! This is her first trip there, and she's on a mission to experience Portugal's colors, the markets and street stalls, its artisans and craftspeople... and to eat all the tastiest foods!
She Believes in Good
Camille once lived in a Zen monastery in New Mexico, preparing vegetarian meals sourced from the monastery gardens. She's a passionate advocate of healthful, seasonal ingredients that nourish body and soul.
