Stacy Streuli was born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas. Stacy was raised in a food-loving family. When she was a young child, her foodie mother received her certification in London at the Le Cordon Bleu cookery school, and began a local cooking school for adults and children, as well as a catering service, focusing on healthy family fare that could be prepared with a minimum of fuss. Seeing her mother featured in local newspapers and standing at her elbow as she taught and cooked, helped Stacy develop her own skills and interest in cooking. After Stacy graduated from Emerson College in Boston, she moved to Los Angeles to work in the film industry, and there she quickly fell in love with the fresh and healthy California cuisine. After marrying her Swiss-American husband, it was determined that a move to Europe was in the cards. Clean air and beautiful scenery were a wonderful change of pace from crowded and smoggy Los Angeles. But Stacy’s love of international foods, Mexican and Tex-Mex in particular, became the catalyst for her to learn to recreate all of her favourite dishes, and push her to be more creative and experimental in the kitchen. After 13 years of living in Switzerland, becoming Mama to two children and 10 chickens, and looking after a house in the Swiss countryside, Stacy began her own company, Lone Star Kitchen, offering bespoke catering and cookery courses. She hopes to share her love of cooking and enjoyment of food with all the people of Switzerland.
