Meadow Ramsey – Pastry Chef
The last four years have found Meadow manning the ovens and building the pastry program at Sqirl, L.A. Previously, she spent time in the pastry kitchens of Campanile here in Los Angeles and Craft and Gramercy Tavern in New York. When not in the kitchen, she can be found exploring Southern California with her husband and their two pups, or relaxing at home with them in Hollywood. She believes that life really is better with butter, sugar and flour and that cooking with the seasons is the most delicious way. Meadow is thrilled to be a part of the Kismet team and can’t wait to feed you.

Eric was most recently the Service Director at Cliff's Edge. Before that, he served at Parts and Labour, under Matty Matheson and at Momofuku Noodle Bar in the early days. He is Canadian (so is his dog) and loves a good ski, usually followed by some kind of board game. Eric is committed to excellent service, loves good food and wine and is elated to be joining the Kismet team.
