Meet The Chef
Stephanie DeSpain
Nick Name: Pyet

Stephanie goes by Pyet, short for her inherited native american name Pyetwetmokwe.

Pyet spent part of her childhood on the Osage Indian Reservation, the remaining years of her life have been spent in Kansas City,KS. She is a member of the Prarie Band Potawatomi Nation Tribe. She recently relocated to Los Angeles, CA to promote wellness and nutrition through food. She embraces both her Native American and Mexican heritage equally. 


Pyet's passion for cooking developed as a child while being the help in the kitchen. She was intrigued by the spices and aromas in her family's taquerias and restaurants in the Kansas City area. She attended Le'Cole Culinaire to pursue a Culinary Education and since has earned a certification in Wellness & Nutrition. Pyet started a personal chef business 'Pyet's Plate' in 2016, to promote passion for wellness, nutrition and quality of food to the public. While doing so hopes to encourage others to pass along healthy cooking, lifestyle choices and traditions within their own families.
