In the Kitchen...Chef Mo

Chef Mo L’Esperance is an award-winning bay area chef who specializes in California coastal cuisine. In addition to her numerous local accolades, she has been a part of the James Beard Foundation since 2012 as well as a Blue-Ribbon Task Force (BRTF) chef appointed by the Monterey Bay Aquarium. The BRTF is a collection of chefs from across the country helping to promote and bring awareness to sustainable fishing practices around the world to help preserve our oceans.


Chef Mo is originally from Southern California but soon after high school moved to San Francisco where she trained to become a chef. Once she honed her skills, she took charge of a handful of fine dining restaurants where she was recognized by local publications such as Eater, Edible & Food Network to name a few. Chef Mo eventually wanted a bigger challenge and became the driving force behind many North Bay hotel and restaurant renovations like Tiburon Tavern & MacArthur Place Sonoma.


Growing up at the beach Chef Mo has always been drawn to the ocean. Santa Cruz is where she settled as the chef of Costanoa and then at the Dream Inn. After Covid she decided it was time to go into business for herself.  As a long-time Ben Lomond resident, she is thrilled to have the opportunity to do so here in the beautiful Santa Cruz mountains.
