Meet Escuela’s New Chef – Deirdre Lane

Deirdre Lane is an Albuquerque native who has spent the last 11 years plying her trade as an organic chef in New York City.   She moved home this summer and will be opening Deirdre’s Kitchen at Escuela del Sol at the start of the 2013-2014 school year.

Deirdre graduated from the prestigious Johnson and Wales University of Culinary Arts in Charleston, SC in 2000. She moved to Manhattan in 2002 and worked for several high-end, organic-focused catering companies in the city through the spring of 2013.

Over the years Deirdre had an ever-growing dream to move back west. In a recent conversation she said, “New York is a great experience, fun and exciting, but the Land of Enchantment with all of its beauty and outdoor activities is where my heart belongs.”  Family is very important to Deirdre. Her mother and one sibling, Mark, live in Albuquerque and another brother, Matthew, lives in Las Vegas. Deirdre moved to Albuquerque with her boyfriend Doug and their cat Butterpaws.

Deirdre is very committed to the use of natural, whole, organic ingredients in her cooking. When asked about her vision for Deirdre’s Kitchen she answered, “To me this is the perfect opportunity, to come home and to work being of service to young children in providing healthy organic meals. I hope that I can help instill an understanding and passion for nutritious, natural, and organic eating in the children of Escuela del Sol.”
