Cocktails With Chef Pace Webb

I met chef Pace Webb at a beautiful launch event hosted by Celadon & Celery. Every minute a little delicacy even more scrumptious than before rolled out of the kitchen. We got to talking and I learnt a little more about the wonderful world or Pace. From events, to catering and even running her own podcast, Pace is a talented, creative and purposeful go-getter.

What do you do and why do you do it?

I cook beautiful tasty food!  I was raised by an actress and an artist and so being creative is naturally in my blood.  I found my way to food and now I like to be a performance artist when it comes to food- always looking to use vibrant colors and flavors that excite.

What’s the best gift you ever got?

My 30th birthday was a very special one.  Such a changing point where I really became a grown ass woman.  My fellow at the time gave me an inscribed and bound copy of The New York Times from the day I was born.

What’s the worst gift you ever got?

I love you mom!  And I’m really very funky, but she gave me a cropped bright green fur coat one year for Christmas.  And I could see where she was coming from, but no.   Just no.  It’s definitely something Miley Cyrus would appreciate now, however, in her retro-raver style.

What’s your advice for all things love, sex and dating?

Be patient and let it be authentic!  It can be frustrating to wait and to kiss frogs, but it’s way more fulfilling in the end and you don’t waste time with riff-raff.  Cut the cord if it’s not working!  It opens the door for something much better.

What’s your go to pick me up?

An exhilarating work out (usually a run followed by yoga) and a really good night out with lots of drinks and dancing!

Tell us about your first heartbreak…

Ugh- who would want to recount that!  Devastation!  But, every relationship does seem to get better than the last, so that’s the upside.

Tell us about a time you Bounced Back better than ever…

You know what?  I can’t say that I’ve ever really bounced back very quickly from a break- up.  BUT, I can say that with my last break up I really took my time and allowed myself to go through all stages of emotion.  I took about a year off from dating and any romantic contact for that matter.  It wasn’t that fun, but it made me re-evaluate the choices I had been making and why they hadn’t worked.  I’d already thought about the next kind of guy I wanted to be with, but I didn’t focus on it too much.  And when he showed up, I was like, “Yep!  That’s my guy!”
