Chef Andrea Drummer’s culinary experience dates back to her childhood in Ft. Lauderdale, FL, where she first learned the basics of cooking at age six while watching and helping her mother. Years later, in the midst of a successful career in the business world, Andrea realized she could no longer ignore her lifelong passion for cooking. After honing her palate living in Miami, Philadelphia, Atlanta and Brooklyn, she left corporate America to attend Le Cordon Bleu in Los Angeles, CA. Since graduating, Andrea has worked for Michelin-starred chefs and renowned restaurateurs such as Neal Fraser and Thomas Keller. She was the chef for the Executive Lounge at the Ritz-Carlton, Los Angeles and now owns a unique California-based cooperative, Elevation VIP, which was featured on the Netflix docu-series, Chelsea Does.
“The best part of my work is the boundless opportunity to be creative and serve others,” says Andrea. “The mission statement that I designed for myself many, many years ago was to ‘go and be where I am most needed.’ I'm able to maintain the simplicity of that statement while being of service to others.”
Andrea is a staunch advocate for the cannabis community, and dedicates her time to education about proper dosing and healthy diet. She has presented at various events throughout California and is lighting up the competition with her recent cannabis cooking competition victory at Culinary and Cannabis Expo. Andrea is scheduled to appear on various TV cooking shows and other events throughout the nation.Find her on Instagram | Twitter | LinkedIn
