Does it get any better than that?"
Sarah Ashley Schiear is a chef, entertaining expert, and entrepreneur based in New York City. Sarah’s professional cooking career began in 2013 after appearing on Season 1 of ABC’s The Taste, finishing in third place overall.
After running a successful pop-up restaurant with her chef-partner from the show, Sarah pursued a career as a private chef and caterer. Her focus on simple preparations of high-quality, seasonal ingredients and stunning presentation has led her to work with high-profile clients including Mary-Kate Olsen & Olivier Sarkozy.

In late 2014, Sarah launched Salt House with a line of fashion-forward aprons for the modern home cook. The brand has recently expanded into e-commerce with the launch of Salt House Market, with plans to open an experiential brick-and-mortar store in 2018.
