Malik Francis, Chef
Cooking is a deeply personal passion. Like most passions it is a mixture of love, intimacy, sacrifice, and dedication. I became a professional cook shortly before completing my PhD thesis in Biochemistry and Molecular biology at UC Berkeley. Cooking has previously been a creative outlet to counterbalance the daily grind and stress of graduate school. My experiences as a scientist have shaped my perspective on food. In that I do not strictly adhere to dogma, as I seek to challenge assumptions. I have been fortunate to have worked in some of the best kitchens in San Francisco (Spruce, Beast and the Hare, Ragazza, and Benu), and my experiences have taught me to let star ingredient be the star using both modern and classic techniques.

Susanne Capello, Chantal Events
Chantal Events specializes in creating experiences from weddings, celebrations, corporate events and parties being planned for no particular occasion at all. It is a one stop shop for all your planning, design and production. Founder, owner and creative Susanne Capello was born and raised on the exotic island Curaçao and lived in Holland for 8 years. Her designs are inspired by culinary arts, fashion and her travel experiences. Creatively repurposing materials with an eye on high quality, as well as creating custom décor pieces for your event is highly valued by Chantal Events. Susanne’s goal is to create unique and imaginative experiences for all her clients.

Lillian Madden, Cocktail Expert
A native darling of the Bay Area, Lillian inherited fine gourmet qualities from her father, to fulfill the purpose to deliver inside-and-out beauty rituals, with some of the most inspired juicing recipes. Top it with her natural effervescent disposition: santé! Lili will be serving seasonal infused mimosas and bloody marys.

Lili, a native darling of the Bay Area, initiated her eclectic career as a makeup artist and beauty advisor, she then devoted her inherent confidence to excel at hair removal, hence her eloquent nickname, “Queen of the Wax”. As a skin expert, Lili’s inquisitive mind caters to the most meticulous selection of treatments. The culinary passion she inherited from her father now becomes a purpose to deliver inside-and-out beauty rituals, with some of the most inspired juicing recipes. Top it with her natural effervescent disposition: santé!

Marion and Lili’s encounter in 2007 while working together at a prestigious spa, set the tone to a common vision: impeccable skills and a nurturing presence lead to a soulful practice. We now have the pleasure to work together, and manifest savoir-faire and savoir-être at Ensoma!
