Hi there! My name is Hailee and I’m the gal behind the hands in the cooking and coffee videos you see across my social channels @cafehailee! I’m a longtime lover of everything food and eating, which inevitably led me to attending culinary school right out of high school. I spent many years cooking in restaurants and truly loved the ride. The combination of the pandemic and the general stresses of the restaurant industry, Ied to my decision to take a break from kitchens. Thus my TikTok and Instagram pages began!
The one thing that always frustrated me about the restaurant industry was the disconnect between the food being cooked and the person enjoying it. It was always made to seem that beautifully made food was unattainable or too hard to make at home. That this kind of nourishment could only be produced in a professional kitchen. I hope through my recipes and videos I inspire people to get cooking in their own kitchens! To show that everyone can take even just a few ingredients and make something truly fulfilling 🙂
