For Chef Camille Rodriguez, cooking runs in the family. Chef Camille first sharpened her skills in the kitchen while spending time with her family, watching Julia Child and learning the tricks of the trade from her grandfather, a pastry cook on cargo ships.
After graduating college in Puerto Rico, Chef Camille attended the Institute of Culinary Education in New York City where she focused primarily on French and Italian cuisine. After graduating, she continued to hone her skills in New York City, getting her first job at Bobby Flay’s Mesa Grill where she was a line cook and then as sous chef at Jimmy Bradley’s The Harrison and later the Red Cat.
Chef Camille became Executive Chef at age 34 at Monument Lane in NYC’s West Village. In 2016, she joined Pizzeria Sirenetta on the Upper West Side as Executive Chef. Chef Camille’s menu focuses on seasonal dishes inspired by the regional cuisines in Italy, including antipasti, pasta and pizzas.
When she’s not in the kitchen, Chef Camille spends time exploring markets near and far for new and interesting ingredients. Chef Camille lives in Harlem.
