"Without passion, the finest ingredients and the best training will fall short of their mark"
Chef Jackie Alejo  

I began working in restaurants in 1978, & the chefs I constantly trailed with star-struck eyes, who taught me that using solid techniques, my passion and the finest ingredients were the best tools of the trade. I was taught how to truly taste the food I made & to pay attention to even the smallest of details. Most importantly, I learned that all of these ingredients will make even a simple meal truly great. Since then, I climbed my way up to work with very talented chefs in some of the best kitchens in Houston, TX.

Years later, I felt so stifled as cooking in restaurants simply due to them being designed to feed the masses. Despite being urged by many to open my own restaurant, it still wasn't what I really wanted to do as it was just really no different. I began investigating many avenues of the culinary world, and finally learned about the personal chef industry. I was professionally trained by the American Personal and Private Chef Institute in the year 2000 & have been an active proud member & mentor ever since. In May 2007, I joined their staff as a consultant for software designed for personal chefs to manage their businesses more effectively until May 2011. I still continued my service during the interim as I knew deep down this was the only way to continue to cook professionally, one client at a time.

My personal chef service is also not a "one size fits all" type of service & my clients consists of just everyday folks: busy professionals, singles, senior citizens, new parents, &families with hectic lifestyles. My service provides a more simple answer for them. Around 2005, I decided further my culinary education to include specializing in many health disorders, conditions, & food allergies. This is because the sad reality was not only are we more busy than ever, but we also have more health concerns than ever before & I wanted to expand on my talents by helping those who may be at a loss when diagnosed with a health issue or a food allergy. Some of my clients have diabetes, HBP, coronary disease, celiac, galactosemia, candida, cancer, & many of my clients have food allergies or intolerances (such as wheat/gluten, nuts, milk, etc.) I feel blessed that I can truly help my clients live easier & not be a prisoner to their health issues.

Like the cliché "you are what you eat" a personal chef is just what's on the menu for a healthier lifestyle. I prepare a variety of dishes: gourmet, ethnic, comfort foods, dietary specific & low fat, and most dishes can be modified for Vegans/Vegetarians. I routinely shop at Earth Fare, Food City, Fresh Market, Publix, Whole Foods to name a few but will shop anywhere my client prefers. Of course, I adore the farmer's markets especially the Chattanooga Sunday market. Freshly preparing top quality, preservative free foods in the safety of your own home or delivered to your front door will bring you peace of mind in knowing that what you are eating is not only healthy for you but delicious! The added bonus is that my service will give you more time to focus on enjoying your life. Besides my personal chef service, a variety of other services are offered, so please visit the services page to view the many services that are offered, & references are available upon request. Also, many clients don't have the time to get to the store during the week, so I do offer to pick up items for my clients while I am shopping for their ingredients for meals at no extra cost.

I do the cooking so you don't have to, & I look forward to bringing my skills and passion to you as your personal chef, and making your meals "truly great"! Chef Jackie Alejo
