How it all began.
CEO and chief instructor Ranita has always possessed a deep love of all things culinary. She decided to follow her passion and enrolled with Ferrandi, Paris to begin her professional training in world class French cuisine and Pastry. Thereafter, she interned at several Michelin rated restaurants around Paris and, following this, she did a stint at the world famous NOMA in Denmark.
Ranita and Anna met by chance when, in December of 2017, Anna attended one of Ranita's in home pastry making classes. Ranita was eager to share her knowledge of the skills she honed at the Ferrandi in Paris and Anna was so happy with the first class she attended that she signed up for more, and that was the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
Fast forward to October 2018; Ranita's professional culinary skills and deep Knowledge of what makes for a delicious dish combined with Anna's business acumen to form a truly unique Pacific Northwest institution: Urban Table Culinary Arts.
