Dahlia bio shot

Native Angelena Dahlia Narvaez developed a love for food when cooking for her family after school in Highland Park. Trading the classroom for the kitchen, Narvaez left school for a job at the Conga Room at the age of 22. Looking to take the next step in her career, Dahlia confidently strode through the doors of La Brea Bakery and asked for a counter job. But she never worked a minute behind the counter, vaulting immediately to the kitchen at Nancy Silverton’s Campanile where, in 2003, she was name Executive Pastry Chef. Dahlia left Campanile in 2006 to assume the role of Executive Pastry Chef for what was to soon become Osteria Mozza and Pizzeria Mozza. Dahlia developed the menus and pastry departments for all of Mozza’s LA restaurants and oversees the department in Newport Beach, San Diego, and Singapore. Dahlia has been thrice-nominated for the James Beard Foundation’s Outstanding Pastry Chef Award. Her work has been celebrated in the Los Angeles Times, LA Weekly, New York Times, Bon Appetit, Food & Wine, GQ, and Metropolitan Home.
