Our Story

About Us

Welcome to Cookdrop Kitchen! My name is Ashley Fahr, and I a personal chef from Boston, Massachusetts.  I first gained interest in food through a Master 1 in “Food and Food Cultures” from La Sorbonne in Paris, France. I continued my gastronomical education while working at cooking schools in restaurants in New York City (Havens Kitchen, l’Apicio, Brooklyn Botanic Garden) and Los Angeles (Melisse), before eventually settling in as a personal chef in the city of angels.

I hope that you are visiting this site for its most obvious purpose, which is to gain your business. Beyond that, I hope it inspires visitors to seek joy and love through food, because whether I am cooking for you or not, that is ultimately the goal.

From 2017-2020, Cookdrop Kitchen expanded to include two private kitchen and dining spaces.  Our dear friend COVID stepped in and changed the course of Cookdrop’s trajectory, so both spaces are shuttered for good.

If you live in LA and are looking for a personal chef, or a chef to cater your next event, I would love to hear from you.  All cooking class inquiries are welcome as well 🙂

I wish you happiness, joy, and love, especially in regards to your meals!

“To invite people to dine with us is to make ourselves responsible for their well-being for as long as they are under our roofs.”
