Chef Csilla Thackray

Csilla Thackray, 25, was born in Pittsburgh and grew up in the North Hills area. She previously worked as Sous Chef at Bar Marco and is currently the Executive Chef at The Vandal.

With her roots in Eastern European cooking and her Hungarian heritage, Csilla's approach to food is simplistic and seasonally driven. Her menu highlights many ingredients from local farms and co-ops around western PA. For Csilla, it's important to create a relationship between the farmers, the food and the consumer.

When not in the kitchen, Csilla is hanging out with her two cats, Schultz and Alice, or at the farm with her horse.
