Chef Justine Kelly Celebrates Father’s Day

Executive Chef and Sun Basket co-founder Justine Kelly has been cooking professionally for more than 25 years, but ask where her love of food began and she’ll tell you about her dad.


“When I was a little kid, my dad encouraged me to work with him in the kitchen,” Justine says. “My favorite thing to make was salad dressing. He taught me to make a garlic vinaigrette that we call ‘6-2-1-1’. It’s made from 6 parts olive oil, 2 parts red wine vinegar, 1 clove garlic (chopped), and 1 tablespoon mustard (don’t forget the salt and pepper). We still use that same recipe, though now my dad makes it with my daughter, Stella.”
