We know how to cook up a good time.

 

CYNTHIA SAMANIAN, FOUNDER

Cynthia spent most of her 20s packing, moving, and unpacking boxes, as she lived in five cities over five years. Eventually, she left the corporate world to get her MBA…and more passport stamps. Cynthia moved to San Francisco in 2012 to work at a tech startup, and has called this place home ever since. Read more about the inspiration for Confetti Kitchen here.

Dream dinner guests: Beyoncé, Ina Garten, and the Obama family.
Always in my fridge: Eggs, parm cheese, and Plugra salted butter.


CHRISTY MOYER, CULINARY

Christy is the girl behind the shaker, trying to develop (and drink) as many cocktails as possible — in an effort to bring the best ones to you. During a post-breakup haze years ago, she earned her bartending license and hasn’t looked back since. Christy shares her alcohol-infused concoctions over on her cocktail blog, The Shared Sip.

Dream dinner guests: Jhumpa Lahiri, Steve Martin, Kelly Ripa, John Stamos, and (admittedly) Britney Spears.
Last kitchen fail: A scotch cocktail that my dad lovingly referred to as “horrendous.”


KATHERINE KNOWLTON, CULINARY 

Katherine was born and raised in Charleston, South Carolina, home to shrimp and grits and fried green tomatoes. Following her passion for food, she earned her Culinary Arts degree from the San Francisco Cooking School. These days, you can find Katherine picking out the perfect strawberry for a photo shoot, mastering her donut recipe, or wandering the aisles of her favorite Asian market.

Dream dinner guests: David Chang, Anthony Bourdain, and Ellen DeGeneres.
Always in my fridge: Shaoxing wine aka Chinese cooking wine.

SPRITZ, GROCERY GETTER

You’ll find Spritz the Vespa cruising up and down the hills of San Francisco, usually with a bunch of grocery totes dangling from her. She was named after the Aperol Spritz cocktail, because of her unmissable orange color and Italian roots.
