New Orleans is a magical place where fountains bubble and birds chirp in lush, brick-walled courtyards. The mystical spirit of the city and the humidity from the Gulf of Mexico surround natives and visitors everyday unlike any other place on earth.
Coming from a family that spent much of their time farming and growing food, owner Keith West had a botanical background that only expanded in the city that is known for its fresh ingredients and decadent foods. The reputation of the superior food in New Orleans grew greatly in the decade that Keith lived there and his own cooking excellence was awarded “Best Breakfast in New Orleans” by Frommer’s Travel guide.
It is his passion for fresh ingredients, quality recipes and stunning presentation that crossed over from the hospitality business to the beauty industry at his day spa.
Now Keith lives with his adoring family and pet potbelly pig named Priscilla, in a 9,000 square foot historic converted music school in Albuquerque, New Mexico. New Mexico is know for its diverse lands and history in agriculture. Albuquerque is a city hungry for rapid growth and expansion. From the awe-inspiring sunsets to the mountainous landscape it's no wonder why New Mexico is called the Land of Enchantment.
