Sara Wells was born and raised in the Seattle area. Inspired by the lush green surroundings of the Pacific Northwest, she earned a degree in horticulture from Brigham Young University and put her talents to work as a landscape designer. Her knack for design, as well as a lifetime passion for culinary exploration and entertaining on the spur-of-the-moment, resulted in catering opportunities, which allowed Sara to showcase her belief that food can taste great and be beautiful as well.
Sara served an LDS mission in Curitiba, Brazil, where she picked up a love of fresh ingredients and a taste for Latin flavor that influences much of her cooking today. She and her husband, Eric, currently reside in Boise, Idaho, where they cook, eat, laugh, and play with their three young sons, Tyler, Owen, and Jack.
