Chef Pink is the “Bacon” half of “Bacon & Brine”: a 17-year food and restaurant industry veteran, she’s worked with California Chefs and restaurants stretching from Los Angeles to San Francisco, as well as in New York and Paris kitchens. Chef Pink’s time in New York had her working with Chef April Bloomfield at both The Spotted Pig and The Breslin, while a stint in Oakland had her cooking at Camino Restaurant with Chef Russell Moore, a Chez Panisse (Berkeley) alum. In recent years, Chef Pink’s dedication to her craft and her food mission, garnered her spots on Spike TV’s “Bar Rescue”, “Man vs. Child” on fyi (TM), and Food Network’s “Cutthroat Kitchen” which she won.


Courtney Rae DeLongpré is the “Brine” half of “Bacon & Brine”: a proponent of healthy eating with a passion for food, nutrition, and small-scale homesteading, which led to her studies of traditional, old-world food preparations, segueing to her current fermentation craft.
