Lemoyne – The Fine Wine & Good Spirits Premium Collection at West Shore Plaza Shopping Center, 1200 Market St., Lemoyne, will host a special event featuring wine and food tasting and a bottle and cookbook signing by chef Tracey Shepos Cenami from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM Monday, Nov. 12.
Tracey Shepos Cenami, chef and cheese specialist for Kendall-Jackson, grew up in a family that was always cooking. Her first job was as a summer camp dishwasher and she was immediately hooked on the comradery, artistic expression, and satisfaction of the kitchen. Throughout high school, she pursued jobs in the culinary industry before attending the Culinary Institute of America in San Francisco. Before joining the Kendall-Jackson team, she was the executive chef for Stark Reality restaurants, a Sonoma County restaurant group. During her tenure there, she helped open five restaurants and create a catering department. She also worked under Chef Michael Romano at Union Square Café for two years.
Tracey considers the Kendall-Jackson Wine Estate & Gardens to be a chef’s dream. She is a vital member of the culinary team at Kendall-Jackson, specializing in wine country cuisine and artisanal cheeses. Her recipes have been published in magazines and newspapers, and she is a three-time winner of Food Network’s “Guy’s Grocery Games.”
