Instead of going to a restaurant for our annual holiday work party, we had an "interactive cooking dinner party" with Jessica as our chef/instructor and she did an awesome job. There were nine of us and we prepared the meal (appetizer, dinner and dessert) with her assistance at a private home -- the food and experience was great (lots of laughs)! Strongly recommend this type of party and Jessica!Jan 14, 2014Verified
Jess was fabulous- easy to work with and accommodated people needing to be gluten free and dairy free. The food was absolutely delicious— I think it is some of the sauces she puts on that create great flavors that pop in your mouth. We were so full I just had to put chocolates out for dessert as we couldn’t eat another bite. All said it was one of the best parties ever. I would definitely hire Jess again! Thanks Jess!Dec 4, 2017Verified

We hired Jess for a bachelor party dinner during the Ryder Cup in Minneapolis. She cooked us an incredible meal in our AirBnB. The menu included pulle pork tostadas, baked poblano corn pudding, chicken verde enchiladas and ancho chile crusted tenderloin with chimichurri sauce. The food was excellent, she was easy to work with and flexible with our schedule. We highly recommend Jess!Oct 9, 2016Verified
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Le Cordon Bleu trained. I’ve also worked in the front and backs of restaurants for many years before venturing on my own.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I realized my love for food and my love for teaching. Whether it’s a new recipe, showing someone a healthy food alternative or having someone try a new cuisine or dish. I love bringing that knowledge to people. I wanted to share all my energy and enthusiasm for food to everyone I meet.
- What types of customers have you worked with?I organized and was project coordinator for Hands on Twin Cities setting up volunteers to come in and cook for the homeless once a month. I have taught low income families how to diversify and cook meals with their children in the Minneapolis school district. I have menu planned for your dinner parties. I have catered small dinner parties from 4–100 people. While doing large parties before I prefer small intimate gatherings. I’ve taught many interactive cooking classes allowing hands on education. I like to educate clients on healthy living, Recipes and general food knowledge. I come into clients homes and cook for them on a weekly or biweekly basis. I teach Cooking classes at the co-op to show how to cook healthy meals on a budget. I can show clients how to cook with food sensitivities and food allergies. I like to show clients different ethnic foods and cuisines.
