Is there anything more fun than playing with seasonal, local foods to create mouth watering culinary treats? Executive Chef Meagan Thompson doesn’t think so. After graduating from Johnson & Wales University in Denver with a degree in Culinary Arts, Meagan quickly established herself as an imaginative Chef with a penchant for creating nutritionally forward, locally sourced recipes that appeal to a range of appetites. As Executive Chef in a French Bistro and then a craft brewery/restaurant, Meagan has created dozens of innovative dishes using foods local to the area. Meagan can’t wait to work with local seafood vendors (one of the food groups she couldn’t source locally in Denver) and establishing relationships with the local farmers. We should tell you up front, she LOVES breakfast. So, you may want to put brunch at the Lake Anne Coffee House on your to-do list.
Meagan is also passionate about having a green restaurant — composting food, reusing and recycling as much as possible and ensuring everything in the shop is as environmentally friendly as possible.
Meagan grew up in Reston, attending Langston Hughes Middle School and South Lakes High School. After graduating with a B.S. in Psychology from George Mason University, she moved to Colorado. It was there she discovered her passion for cooking and decided to go to culinary school. We are glad she did.
