Kristi Ritchey: Greenleaf Dinner for Breakfast

Posted: Updated:

Chef Kristi Ritchey from the Greenleaf Gourmet Chopshop visits Good Day LA with ideas on how to turn leftovers from dinner into a delicious breakfast.

Chef Kristi has a few healthy breakfast tips:

  • Use egg whites instead of whole eggs, or even a mixture of mostly egg whites with a whole egg added
  • Use lean proteins such as chicken, turkey bacon, and turkey sausage
  • Add lots of leafy greens like spinach and kale
  • Prep items the night before so that breakfast can be done in 5 minutes

Chef Kristi know about making breakfast because in addition to being trained as a chef with a degree in culinary arts, her restaurant makes breakfast every day. Right now, Greenleaf is running a promotion called "Breakfast for Buck" through April 4th. Certain breakfast items will be only $1.00, and their drip coffee will be $1.00! Only valid from 8-10:30am.Fun Facts About Kristi Ritchey: (Source: greenleafchopshop.com)

1)   A native of Williamsport, PA, Chef Ritchey first caught the cooking bug while working at a small, traditional Italian restaurant in the city. The owner of the restaurant saw so much potential in her that he urged her to pursue a professional career in the culinary arts.

2) After attending culinary school at Pennsylvania College of Technology, Chef Ritchey relocated to California's Napa Valley, where she first landed a cooking position with Restaurant Pinot Blanc, the area's flagship restaurant from Chef Joachim Splichal's Los Angeles-based Patina Group. There, under the tutelage of Chef Greg Stillman, Chef Ritchey was promoted to the position of Sous Chef in less than a year.

3) To this day, Chef Ritchey credits Chef Stillman as one of the greatest positive influences on her cooking style and philosophy. From Pinot Blanc, the Patina Group relocated Chef Ritchey to Palm Springs, for the opening of Eat at The Desert in the chic Hotel Zoso and then soon thereafter she was asked to assist with the opening of the company's Eat on Sunset with Chef Gary Menes.
