Cynthia Toliver, the award-winning executive chef/owner has
been creating scrumptious dishes for more than 30 years. She previously ran the celebrated restaurant, The Welcome Mat, and catering service, International
Cuisine by Cynthia, on Valencia Street, San Francisco in a neighborhood now
known as ‘Restaurant Row'.
Under her stewardship, the
restaurant grew a healthy following and received favorable reviews in the San
Francisco Chronicle and local neighborhood papers.
Cynthia has traveled throughout
Europe, Asia and Africa, visiting local farmer markets on the East and West
coasts, and learned how to cook a variety of vegetables from different
parts of the world by asking the locals "How do you cook that?" - experimenting
on her own, to delightful results! There is nothing more satisfying than
when an older patron tells her, "This is just like my mother used to make."
The chef/owner has conducted
recipe testing in Caracas, Venezuela. In New York and California she has led
training sessions for home and industrial cooks, undertook menu planning and written
and conducted recipe testing for seasonal cookbooks.
The mission of ToliverWorks is to provide
tasty, creative and affordable food fare of high quality from local
sources. Their soups are reknown for freshness, taste and creativity. Try some today!
