Duskie Estes made her grandfather's birthday cake with pride in her EZBake oven at the age of 5. After graduating from Brown University studying American History, she established herself in restaurants working at Al Forno, Kinkead's, Greens, and Palace Kitchen. Duskie and her salumist husband, John Stewart, have ZAZU Restaurant + Farm and Black Pig Meat Co. in Sonoma County, California. After 22 years as a vegetarian, Duskie was crowned Queen of Pork at Aspen Food & Wine's Grand Cochon and makes some of the finest bacon out there. She is a proponent of pasture raised animals and the "snout to tail" cooking philosophy, respecting the life given by using every part. A chef, a farmer, and a rancher, she is as dedicated to her sourcing as her cooking. Duskie previously competed in The Next Iron Chef season three.
