and The Mansion. With both master chefs, she feels fortunate to be guided by extremely talented cooks, who taught her a wide range of important skills in a very professional environment. Arrington, an ardent believer in using fresh, seasonal products, considers several important factors in creating her menu, including the weather, what's in season, and the availability of locally-grown food. Nyesha comes from an artistic family; both her father and sister are musicians, and before pursuing a culinary career she aspired to be a sculptor.
