Rice graduated from Matthew Kenney Academy, deemed one of the best raw culinary schools in the world. She started Chartreuse– a traveling, raw-vegan restaurant in February of 2012. With Chartreuse, she popped up all over the city of Detroit at art galleries, historical buildings, and urban farms. The dinners featured local artists and live music, and the menus (all four course, organic, mostly heirloom, and soy and gluten free) were all different and completely based around what produce was available from urban farms within Detroit’s city limits. In Detroit, Corinne is a local celebrity. She has prepared six-course meals for up to 75 people at a time and was the executive chef for David “Avocado” Wolf’s birthday dinner in 2011. During the spring of 2013, Rice relocated to Venice, CA, where she started ZOETIC, a spin-off of Chartreuse.
In the kitchen, Corinne prepares organic, plant-based fare with a focus on sourcing locally and creating seasonal dishes. She uses only the finest quality ingredients that are gluten- and soy-free, and whenever possible she uses heirloom varieties. She believes in taking care of our bodies now, by nourishing them with the foods and herbs they need, so that each and every body will be able to live a long, healthy life- one that is filled with joy and happiness.
