Sara Polczynski, owner and Culinary Artisan for Seasoned Plates has been a part of the San Diego culinary scene for almost 20 years.  Her story has many chapters.  As a Chef graduate of the California Culinary Academy in San Francisco, Sara left to train at the renowned Manele Bay Hotel in Lanai, HI and The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, CO. Upon her return to her native San Diego, Sara was hired as the Corporate Pastry Chef for the Cohn Restaurant Group, running the pastry department for multiple restaurant concepts.  


Sara's love for teaching on the job led to a part time career of teaching in the classroom. Sara currently holds the position of Associate Professor at San Diego Community College-Continuing Education and teaches the Baking and Pasrty Program as well as cooking classes.  


Over the years Sara's love for cooking began to expand along with her love of travel. Having the opportunity each year to travel and learn about regional Mexican cuisine, art and culture with influencial chef mentors, Rick Bayless, Ricardo Munoz and Susana Trilling, has shaped the style and flavors of Sara's cuisine.   Her most recent project utilizing the knowledge, passion and techniques of authentic regional Mexican cuisine was as the Consultant Executive Chef for The Blind Burro in San Diego.  Bringing authentic Mexican cuisine with a modern California flair to the people of San Diego was a dream project.


Seasoned Plates is brought to life in the next chapter of the story in order for Sara to share her passion for food and provide a unique culinary experience for each and every client.
