Lisa Squire, a mother of 2 sons (23 and 16), was born and raised in the Bronx, NY. From the early age of 9 she found herself drawn to the world of cooking. Learning first from her Grandmother, the best cook of her family, she grew her experience and abilities self-taught. Her success at family and church functions culminated in 2006 when Chef Li (as she is now known) began cooking for a Maryland family whose career left no time for Sunday dinners. These dinners, which provided the praise that Chef Li should “start a catering business,” led her to formal culinary education.
At the young age of 40, Chef Li was accepted to the Culinary Institute of America, trained at the Art Institute of Washington in Arlington, Virginia, and finished her degree training at Monroe College in New York.
Since that time she has worked at Radio City Music Hall, and a non-profit agency making meals for upwards of 600 people per meal. She also did catering service for an inaugural ceremony at a law firm in Washington D.C, an auction at the D.C. Omni Hotel alongside several celebrity chefs, in which she did personal work with Chef Jimmy Sneed (Sugartoad, Chicago), and also worked on O Magazine’s 10th Anniversary at Radio City Music Hall, all in 2009.
Chef Li continues to work in the culinary field and has expanded her efforts to the internet with M V Consulting, Inc. This allows her to provide recipes and practical knowledge she hopes will inspire future chef’s as she was inspired.
