Today we’d like to introduce you to Anessa Sanchez.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Anessa. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I have been passionate about cooking since I was a little girl. My first recollection of cooking was when I was 3 and loved to help my grandma in the kitchen, it became natural to cook everyday in the kitchen since then. I decided as an adult that my passion is what I wanted to chase as a career and then enrolled in Le Cordon Bleu culinary Arts. This was the best decision I have ever made. Once I was in culinary school I started working in the catering industry to gain some professional knowledge. Once I graduated from culinary school I started working as a chef at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel & Suites that’s when I started Savor Organico Private Chef/Catering and worked at both. I worked at the Westin for three years before I said goodbye and decided to work full time at Savor Organico. It was a hard decision to leave a secure job but owning your own business is so much more rewarding.
Has it been a smooth road?
It has not been a smooth road. There have been a lot of blood, sweat, and tears along the way but I can honestly say all those bumps has shaped me to be a better chef and business owner. Being a woman in a male dominating industry and also being a minority business owner does have it’s ups and downs but at the end of the day it’s all been worth it because I am chasing my dream. At the end of the day, it’s something I built from the bottom and I am working my way up to have an amazing and successful business.
We’d love to hear more about your business.

Is our city a good place to do what you do?
Yes, I do think Los Angeles is a great place for any food business since we are a multi-cultural city people are open to trying many different styles of foods. I love that we have many different food events throughout the year for people to explore many parts of the world but yet still stay in their own city.
