Bio Ursula Gatti Rafer was born on January 21, 1979 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. . . the place of home-cooking! At the age of 18 years old, she attended culinary school and focused on her pastry classes. While working in several well known restaurants, she learned many styles of cooking and became an expert in French-Creole cuisine. In 1996, Ursula moved to Boca Raton, Florida to be closer to her father, John Gatti, Jr. In Florida she continued to expand on her knowledge of cooking and its many different styles. She is certified through the national registry of food safety managers and is a member of the United States Personal Chef Association (USPCA). In addition to her love for cooking, she has two additional favorite pastimes: yoga and art. Both she and her husband Sheridan Rafer (CPTS, ACSMHFS, NSCA-CPT) owner of Personalize Your Fitness are dedicated to improving the lives of others through good nutrition and exercise. By 2006, she began the catering business Divine Dining L.L.C. Ursula has shared her passion for creating edible masterpieces with several students and feels that people are unnecessarily intimidated by food so she encourages her students to experiment with spices and taste new things. By combining her love for cooking and artwork, she has created many amazing meals and desserts that werenâ€™t only delicious, but were also pieces of art! This year she opened Cupcakechef.com an online bakery that sells beautiful an assortment of baked goods to fit any and all diet restrictions. (e.g. Vegan, Sugar-free, Gluten Free, and more)Ursula can be seen at Miele of Boca Raton for cooking lessons or right in the comfort of your kitchen where she is delighted to be bringing a love of food, great nutrition, cooking and edible art to all!
