Hello! Welcome to Lone Star Kitchen! My name is Stacy Streuli. I was born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas. The land of BBQ and Tex-Mex! Growing up, my mother ran a culinary school and was certified by the Le Cordon Bleu cookery school. I learned to cook at her side and helped with children’s cookery courses. I received my bachelor’s degree from Emerson College in Boston. Shortly after graduation I moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in the film and television industry. After 7 years in Southern California, I fell in love with the fresh and healthy Southern Californian cuisine and the Baja Californian cuisine, and enjoyed many trips to the Mexican seaside. After marrying my Swiss-American husband, we 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 my love of international foods, Mexican and Tex-Mex in particular, became the catalyst for me to learn to recreate all of my favourite dishes, and push me to be more creative and experimental in the kitchen. After 16 years of living in Switzerland, becoming Mama to two children, a dog, 10 chickens, 2 ducks, and a rooster… as well as looking after a house built in 1747 in the Swiss countryside, I began to offer my own cookery courses and bespoke catering services. I hope to share my love of cooking and enjoyment of food with all of you.
