Hi, I'm Audrey.
A former media arts activist, Audrey spent her college years as an intern at Giant Robot Magazine, as well as a film programmer and event planner for the San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival (now known as CAAM Fest). She spearheaded CAAM Fest's popular Directions in Sound, a music and music video showcase. Audrey also served time at Hyphen Magazine as Publicity & Outreach Coordinator, as well as Interim Publisher. Six weeks after finishing graduate school, Audrey followed her passion and studied culinary arts at San Diego Culinary Institute. She has been cooking professionally since 2009, having apprenticed in sushi & charcuterie-making. Most notably, Audrey has worked at The Oceanaire under Chef Brian Malarkey, and at Top Chef Master Chris Cosentino's salumeria, Boccalone, in San Francisco. Audrey was Kitchen Manager for MIHO Gastrotruck/A MIHO Experience, Chef & Consultant for The Cheese Store of San Diego, and has helped open eateries in San Diego such as The Lion's Share, and Underbelly North Park. Currently, Audrey runs her own start-up culinary consulting company called Filiguido, and helps her husband with his bicycle frame building business, Zanotti Bicycles. In her spare time, she hosts pop-up dining events with long-time friend and fellow community activist/restaurant sister, Lily Prijoles, for Sunday Kitchen/Meryenda Social Club.
