Born and raised in St. Louis, Clara Moore has enjoyed a diverse culinary career so far. She started working at Duff’s at just the age of 16 as a busser, eventually moving up to Sous Chef. There she learned the culinary basics under the guidance of the talented Jim Voss, who imparted the value of utilizing seasonal and local produce.
Driven by food and cooking, Moore went to culinary school in Baltimore and learned Mexican Cooking in Guanajuato, Mexico.
During her time living in St. Louis she has worked at Trattoria Marcella, Mangia Italiano, and found an exceptional opportunity in opening Local Harvest Cafe and Catering in 2008, where she realized her dream of working with local, small farm produce and artisan products for over 5 years.
Clara is currently residing in Seattle but returns to St. Louis often to teach classes at Kitchen Conservatory, go out to dinner, and sell this guidebook.
