Gracie Schatz has been in the food industry for 13 years. She began her career as a baker and private chef in Eugene, Oregon. She moved to Italy to learn about farming pigs, making cheese, tending bees, and Tuscan cooking. After tasting Italian prosciutto, she became a pork fanatic which led to her to the Fatted Calf in San Francisco and eventually managed Avedano's in Bernal Heights. Her desire to partake in the full cycle of meat consumption lead her to the Sierra Foothills where she raised, slaughtered, and cured her own heritage pigs. She returned to the Bay Area to cook at Molina and Cala restaurants where she became an adept fish butcher and learned to cook in a wood-fired oven. All the while Gracie and her business partner, Alana Eckhart have run a successful pop-up restaurant, Bread and Bones Supper. Today, Gracie lives in Eugene, Oregon where she has started Heart of Willamette Cooking School, inspired by her time teaching at 18 Reasons.
