The Owner/ Chef
A bay area native, Steven Cheung graduated from City College of San Francisco with a Culinary Arts degree, and earned a diploma in Pâtisserie from the Hong Kong Culinary Academy after working several years in a Resort in Sausalito. In 2014, Steven became the premier Pastry Chef at Stanford University, where he created the institution's first pastry department. He then moved to Los Angeles and opened the Santa Monica Proper Hotel as their Pastry Chef. At his most recent job, Steven works for one of the top catering companies in the Bay Area, Global Gourmet Catering, where he used his diverse experiences to produce refined, beautiful, and above all, delicious desserts.
Working in fine dining was where Steven first realized the importance of spoons. In the kitchen, they are used for everything, from saucing a plate, to tasting elements of a dessert, to quenelling ice cream. Each spoon's function follows its form and is very personal to it's possessor. On his first day of work, Steven learned that it was traditional to obtain a special spoon to last his whole career. Over these past few years, Steven has amassed a sizable collection from his travels, from Europe, America, and Asia. Each spoon is unique, with it's own personality and history.
"I love spoons the way I love eggs, for the beauty of their shape and their multiple uses."
