50 Years of Love

50 Years of Love

Chef Debra Cargile's culinary journey began in her youth when she assisted her mother in meal preparation. Her passion for cooking ignited at 16, working in a local restaurant, where a customer, Olympic champion Jean-Claude Killy, praised her steak as the best he'd ever had. Encouraged by this compliment, Debra delved into the culinary arts, gaining 50+ years of restaurant experience. She later opened Deb's Kitchen in Petaluma, known for its love, passion, and local organic ingredients.
