She has been recognized as semifinalist for the 2010 and 2011 James Beard Foundation’s “Best Chef Northwest,” and in 2012 was named Food & Wine’s “Best New Chef” for the Northwest region. Louis has appeared on ABC’s The Chew, and her work has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, Food & Wine, Bon Appetit, The New York Times, and SHAPE, among others. She has appeared at notable culinary events across the U.S., including the SoBe Wine & Food Festival, FEAST, and the Food & Wine Classic in Aspen.
