Chef Lindsey Gilpin, founder of 

BackDoor Bistro and Wine Bar


Lindsey grew up in Vacaville, graduating from Vacaville High School. After a degree in business from Humboldt State University, she felt a need to explore the culinary arts, and so she did, graduating from the Napa Valley Cooking School in St. Helena. She worked for over two years for the Solage Resort in Calistoga at Solbar, a Michelin Star restaurant . She later also worked doing catering for her father's wine business. She dreamed that she might one day have her own restaurant - with this hope, through hard work, creativity, and a little bit of magic, this dream became a reality; and thus BackDoor Bistro was born.
