She has fond memories of cooking with her mom and grandma, rich with Scandinavian tradition. Holidays were about baking, cooking, eating, and enjoying life. One upside to having a military mom was being stationed in the Azores, a small archipelago off the coast of Portugal. This exposure to different food traditions and flavors stoked her curiosity for the culinary arts.

That curiosity carried through into her college years as she sought to decide her future. In her early 20s she found herself working at a Swiss luncheonette and bakery called Andre’s in Cherry Creek. As she would say, “There wasn’t a job in that restaurant that I didn’t do.” From baking to waiting tables, serving to managing staff, food prep, she cut her teeth in the food industry at Andre’s Confiserie Suisse. It was there that she decided she wanted to go further and hone her skills in the culinary field and chose to enroll at Johnson and Wales University.

Upon completion of her program, she worked at the notable Fourth Story restaurant in the old Tattered Cover building in Cherry Creek, followed by Mel’s and Bistro Vendome before settling in at Elway’s for the better part of the last decade. There she earned the title of Executive Chef and became one of Denver’s up-and-coming female chefs, demonstrated by her 2014 and 2015 participation in the “who’s who” of the culinary scene, The Denver Five. As well as receiving James Beard recognition for one of top 25 dishes of 2015 and cooking at the James Beard House in 2011, 2014 and 2015.

Always looking to keep her interests high and finding new challenges, Aniedra parlayed her career into a few new ventures, leaving Elway’s to help establish two new eating spots in RINO, before settling in as the new Executive Chef for Heirloom Catering in Denver.

Why the sudden change from brick-and-mortar restaurants to the uncertain and ever-fluctuating landscape of catering? Simply put, “I can be more creative!” Without a set menu that has been memorized by heart, one is forced to dig deep into their own ideas and flavor palate to come up with something that the customer will truly enjoy.
