Get to know Chef Sera
Chef Sera brings a wealth of experience and perspective to our team. Steeped in rich family traditions, Sera grew up learning techniques from her family’s Italian and Czech heritages. She took those childhood experiences to culinary school in her native Connecticut. Over her career, Sera has worked as a chef at Main and Hopewell, Americus on the Wharf and Pastis, all in Connecticut. Moving to North Carolina in 2001, she has spent time at the Fearrington House in Chapel Hill and Nordstrom Café in Durham. In 2006, she was hired at Foster’s Market in Chapel Hill, where she worked until she and her wife purchased the restaurant and renamed it The Root Cellar Cafe & Catering in 2013.
