Samantha Stephens, Owner/Chef of OatMeals NYC

Samantha Stephens, Owner/Chef

Sam is originally from Fairfax, Virginia and made the move to NYC in 2000 to attend Baruch College, where she majored in Psychology and minored in French. While working in the investment banking world, Sam’s passion for NYC’s flourishing restaurant scene inspired her to attend courses at NYU’s School of Continuing and Professional Studies in Food Writing and also in Business Management. She took that passion a step further when she graduated from The French Culinary Institute’s Pastry Arts Program in 2010.

Why oats?

A desire for healthy living and eating right became essential that first year in NYC when the "freshman 15" quickly became the "freshman 30." Living on a budget, Sam started eating oatmeal for dinner and thought of many creative ways to jazz it up. Reading about the numerous outstanding health benefits of oats led her to want to share her oatmeal recipes and knowledge of oats and their amazing qualities with everyone she knew.


Sam is now ready to share her oatmeal creations with NYC and hopes to revolutionize typical assumptions about oatmeal by letting people know it is anything but old-fashioned!
