Emilie Le Pessot founded Crêpe la Vie in December 2013 as a catering company. Surrounded by a family of chefs and restaurant owners, especially crêperie owners, Emilie had a passion for cooking ever since she was a little girl. After a attending business school and working in Paris, she moved back to San Francisco only to realize that something was missing–creating great food that made people happy. Emilie went to train as a crêpe master in France and now whips up delicious handmade crepes with a crowd-pleasing show where people can see their crêpes created before their eyes.

In college, Hubert taught himself the art of grilling, earning a reputation among family and friends. Pairing his childhood dishes with his grilled meats, Burma Bear is known for all natural Baby Back Ribs with its signature BBQ sauce, Tea Leaf Salad and Burmese Tomato Salad.
