“Deb shares the nuts & bolts of building a successful business. She is candid, informative and open. Even though she is targeting the culinary industry, I learned ideas for my businesses (I am not a chef) related to processes and customer satisfaction. Read and take notes!”

Behind Their Brand: Volumes 1 & 2
Deb is also a co-author of two books: Behind Their Brand: Chef Edition 1 and Chef Edition 2
The book series is a collaborative effort among a group of chefs who have taken bold steps away from the expected path in the culinary industry: working in a restaurant as a traditional chef. Instead, they have boldly and vulnerably ventured into the world of entrepreneurship and have built a successful brand from scratch.
