KAM DE LEON
Director of Culinary Experience, DELEON PROVISIONS
Kam De Leon has an acute eye for detail and specializes in planning, decorating, and organizing events.
To Kam, it’s about more than the food, and it is about more than the décor. To have a truly memorable event you need to understand the “why” of the gathering. Kam helps people create meaningful events through each detail, and she loves finding ways to minimize stress and maximize the “wow” factor at the same time!
Kam loves to bake, to garden, and to volunteer for the kids’ school.
Some fun facts about Kam are:
Favorite Items on DeLeon Provision’s Menu: Fried Chicken! “We brine it overnight so it’s both juicy & crunchy!”
Kam throws an annual New Years’ Day party where they serve fried chicken and champagne in pajamas – the perfect “casual fancy” party!
Kam met Teri while waiting tables in 1999. Kam actually completed her Master’s thesis in History on the history of waitressing, focusing on the 1920’s.
