Personal chef & television host
Based out of Los Angeles, California, USA, Serena Poon is a successful entrepreneur established in the culinary, health and wellness community. Doubling as a classically-trained chef and nutritionist to her clientele, she is known for curating healing and wellness programs using integrative health, holistic nutrition and culinary alchemy. Her passionate focus on the importance of whole body and mind wellness is inspired by the profound effect of cancer on her family when both her mother and father were diagnosed within two years of each other. So, after graduating from the University of California, Berkeley, she went onto pursue an education in the culinary arts at the esteemed Le Cordon Bleu, graduating at the top of her class.
Serena began her culinary career working for Hugh Hefner and Playboy Enterprises at the Playboy Mansion in Holmby Hills. She took that exposure into the world of fine dining and started her own personal chef and private catering business. What began as a career in fine dining with an emphasis on specialized dietary needs, developed into a flourishing health and wellness lifestyle brand. Over the years, Serena has established herself as a top high-profile personal chef and nutritional consultant in Los Angeles and has built a strong clientele strictly by referral. From the likes of Jerry Bruckheimer to Sean “P. Diddy” Combs to Steve Bing, her clients span the globe and her travels expose her to new methods and sources of nutrition to add to her customized techniques.
