Inspired by a love for bold flavors and strong statements, Mary Sue Milliken has made her mark in the culinary world with home cooking from all over the world. For over two decades, Mary Sue and her business partner Susan Feniger have transformed street foods and comfort foods into critically acclaimed cuisine and become some of the country’s foremost authorities on the Latin kitchen.
A natural teacher, Susan shares her passion for food through many media. Her television career began in 1993, when she and Mary Sue were two of sixteen chefs invited to cook with the legendary Julia Child in her PBS series Cooking with Master Chefs. Since, then, the pair have appeared on numerous shows and co-authored five cookbooks. Susan and Mary Sue also created a line of prepared foods under their Border Girls brand at Whole Foods Market and a line of signature pepper mills and salt mills manufactured by Vic Firth Gourmet.
Mary Sue is an active member of the community, providing leadership roles in many educational programs, culinary associations, and charities. At the core, Mary Sue’s love of food shines through. She still takes time to teach cooking classes and work the Border Grill booth at the Santa Monica Farmer’s Market as time and travel allows.
Her days are spent writing and testing recipes, creating menus, managing busy businesses, researching shows, and creating new products. After more than 25 years of being a chef and restaurant owner, Mary Sue is still pushing the borders.
