Chef Bee Cooper-Spruce


My Story

Brianna Cooper-Spruce, known as Chef Bee, found her joy in cooking from working as a child in her grandmother's kitchen to bring family recipes to life. She pursued her passion as a profession and graduated with a culinary arts degree from the renowned L’ Academie de Cuisine. 

Her food is rooted in family and cultural traditions with new world infusions. 


With over eight years of experience working both FOH and BOH roles; she served ss head chef at the French wine bistro La Jambe and is an alum of Chef Amy Brandwein's Centrolina

and Chef Cedric Maupillier's Convivial .

A New York City transplant, she recently worked with the Michelin-starred culinary team at Marea New York before the Covid-19 pandemic. She currently takes private clients and can be found sharing her recipes on your favorite food sites. Notably, Chef Bee worked as a guest chef for the James Beard Foundation's International Women's Day dinner celebration, Talent Beyond Walls


When she's not cooking, Chef Bee likes to take long walks with her labradoodle Bentley or travel the world with her wife. Keep up with her by following @chefbeecooks on Instagram.
