Bay Area Black CEO and Executive Chef shares her recipe for success

Bay Area Black CEO and Executive Chef Leilani Baugh is cooking up Casion Soul on the menu at Magnolia Street Wine Lounge & Kitchen located inside the historic Hotel California located on 35th and San Pablo in Oakland, Ca. “Named after the street I grew up on, I create unique dishes that are a combination of my Black & Chinese heritage. I describe it as a mixture of both Creole and Asian flavors that I like to call “Casian” and pair each dish with delicious wines. These two perfect blends coming together are both simple and complex. www.rouxandvine.com

She says “For several years I was a Director with Pampered Chef – selling cooking tools. In 2013 I launched my first endeavor at selling food – Elle B Bites. I have always had a passion for cooking and serving and i kind of just fell into the business. I went from slinging plates in the back of my truck and out of my home to catering for large companies such as Deloitte & Touche, Reed Smith and McKesson. I didn’t always know the business behind the business though. Slowly I started learning about the business and it grew from a side gig to where we are today. In 2019, I made the final step out of my corporate job in pursuit of my passion. Before i knew it, my food was getting out there and I was catering the NBA Finals for ESPN, TMC and NBC. ”
