2019 Recipient is:

Bee Marrone cooked her first recipe at the age of six: spicy yellow curry. Life after was quite simply never the same. Eschewing the traditional path laid before her, Bee moved from Thailand to England, opening an eclectic British cafĂ©: English breakfast in the morning and Thai/Chinese fare at lunch. Ten years later, she moved to California. Always a community champion, Bee immediately began volunteering at her local church and feeding the homeless. Expert in Thai cuisine, Bee decided to expand her culinary repertoire and enrolled in the Laney College Restaurant Management Program. While working and volunteering full-time, Bee completed the program graduating at the top of her class. Bee’s goal is to be a chef at a high-end restaurant, working with a team that focuses on creative presentation, unique flavors, and “thematic catering.”
