Hello; my name is Jess, and I am a personal chef. I am a culinary graduate and have worked in food and hospitality for many years. I am a huge foodie, and believe that food can be healthy and taste good. As a Holistic Chef, I see the whole experience; mind, body and soul. A recipe is a way of expressing yourself. Each ingredient is put into a dish to complement one another to create fusion. All food is energy. By using only the best quality and sustainably-sourced produce, I maximize all of the benefits and nutrition in each ingredient. When I cook for people I feel like I'm giving them a piece of me. I want to share with people the knowledge I have of food by teaching them about different cuisines, introducing them to new flavors and showing them different cooking techniques. Being a part of this is what brings me the most joy. These are the moments that affirm I love what I do.
