OWNER & CHEF
Family and friends were not surprised that Meg Romano would one day end up in a professional kitchen after spending most of her time cooking while growing up in Connecticut. Her mom was an adventuresome cook with a bountiful vegetable and herb garden and tart apple trees.
Following graduation from Northwestern University, Meg walked into Charlie Trotter’s restaurant and began her intense journey of learning on the job. This was a quick start to a lifetime passion for cooking leading Meg to work with some of the most talented chefs in the country, Chef Charlie Palmer and Chef Gray Kunz at Aureole and Lespinasse restaurants in New York City in all areas of the kitchen.
Meg and Joe worked together at Aureole in New York City and then opened Aureole in Las Vegas together as pastry chef and executive chefs respectively.
Chef Meg developed her extensive skills as a Pastry Chef during a 12-year tenure at Aureole in Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas and ultimately opened her own bakery, Chocolate & Spice, which received multiple awards and exceptional reviews in local and national media.
“To me, Bozeman is the perfect spot to raise our children amidst the great outdoors and pursue our life long passion for cooking delicious food using ingredients harvested close to home. We are thrilled to finally be living here in Bozeman as a part of this amazing community.”
