Chef Paola Petrella has made quite an impressive culinary footprint throughout her career. A Culinary Arts Graduate of Johnson & Wales University in North Miami, she was one of the few who was invited to train internationally at Michelin Awarded Roly’s Bistro in Dublin, Ireland.
After training with Acclaimed Chef Colin O’Daily in Ireland, she went on to work for Award-Winning Chef Norman Van Aken at his 5-star restaurant, Norman’s, in Coral Gables. This is where she met her husband, Chef Craig Petrella.
Her first independent cooking experience came from Univision Latin talk show host, Cristina Saralegui, who hired Chef Paola to help her reach her weight loss goals with a delicious twist. Cristina’s weight loss success catapulted Chef P to cook for Miami’s elite, business moguls, and NBA athletes: Alonzo Mourning and others.
In 2003, the Petrella family moved to Los Angeles where they established themselves as the most sought-out Chefs amongst Hollywood’s biggest names. In 2005, the Petrellas united their talents to provide their clientele with a uniquely customized Meal Delivery and Catering Service for all occasions. This is how Two Peas Inc was born!
Today, Two Peas has evolved into one of L.A.’s most reliable catering services for A-list celebrities and brands such as Warner Brothers, AKA Hotels, Christian Paier of Private Chefs Inc, Kate Beckinsale, Zach Braff, Josh Duhamel, Shannon Sharp, Sally Field, Brett Ratner, Cybill Shepherd, Vanessa Williams, Roselyn Sanchez, and many more.
Two Peas also collaborates with Magnus Lygdback to aid his client’s in achieving his Magnus Method Plan; known for physically training the world’s most recognizable actors, musicians, athletes, artists and high-performance business entrepreneurs.
Chef P’s passionate and spunky personality has shaped Two Peas into the strong brand that it is today. Her clientele and colleagues appreciate her down-to-earth and loyal character which have resulted into long-lasting relationships. She is just as dedicated to her business as she is to raising her family.
