Executive Chef Arleen Lloyd has been in love with cooking since she was 5 years old. Her fascination with creating culinary magic with a few basic ingredients is the inspiration for this lifelong love affair. Having trained under notable chefs such as Julia Child, Jacques Pepin, Paul Prudhomme, Nancy Silverton, along with several European chefs with Michelin star credentials, Arleen’s culinary range includes the cuisines of many cultures, as well as the fine art of baking, patisserie and the chocolate arts. Arleen’s experience touches all sides of the industry. She owned a catering company with retail and wholesale divisions in Miami, FL, where she catered extravagant events for corporate clients and supplied restaurants with specialty baked goods. She has cooked and taught throughout the world and her travels are always an exploration into the nuances of cultural cooking; the how, the why and the joy of sharing local food. She is a cookbook author, business consultant and has served on an advisory board for Kraft Foods developing new products for the marketplace.
Arleen is currently the Executive Chef of Alchemy of the Hearth Culinary School, training those who possess a passion to pursue a career within the food industry at all levels. Her years of experience creating delectable foods which nurture the mind, body and spirit emphasize her philosophy that cooking and baking are a meditation on all that is sacred.
