About Kristen_Desmond

I am a chef living, working and playing in Santa Barbara, California. Most of my time is spent running my small business, Flagstone Pantry, at the Santa Barbara Public Market, where we offer fresh, healthy prepared foods. The connections between diet, health and happiness are undeniable and I do my best to honor them, personally and professionally. When I’m not working, I tend to my home garden, fruit trees, herb garden and compost. I also love hanging out with my family, taking walks with friends, and running on the beach.
