Manresa is happy to announce the return of pastry chef Deanie Fox. "It is with great pride and delight that we welcome back Deanie Fox," said David Kinch. "During her tenure, she was an important part of the success of Manresa, and she has become an impressive pastry chef in her own right." Critical success has followed Deanie on her journey from Manresa to the celebrated restaurant Ubuntu in the heart of downtown Napa. New York Times critic Frank Bruni praised her desserts and lauded Ubuntu as "the Angelina Jolie of restaurants," naming it one of the 1o best new restaurants in the country. She was named a Rising Star Chef 2008 by the San Francisco Chronicle, and Best Pastry Chef by San Francisco magazine's 2008 Best Chefs Awards.
