Featured Chef

Maggie Trujillo is the executive chef at Aerlume, a new restaurant in Seattle operated by Fire & Vine Hospitality offering a dining experience built around the heirloom produce it sources from Washington’s farming community. A lover of water and competitive swimmer, Trujillo left the Midwest for the Pacific Northwest where she worked her way up to executive chef. Her experience working with a true farm-to-table restaurant began in 2014 when she joined Larks Restaurant at the Inn at the Commons in Medford, Oregon. It was there that she discovered her love for working with local farmers, cheesemakers and foragers to source the best ingredients. Leading the Aerlume kitchen brings Trujillo close to the water she loves and presents an opportunity for her to work hand-in-hand with local producers, including Fall City Farms.
