About the Chef

From the Editor

There’s only one problem with having a chef on our team who’s worked for so many super-high-profile clients: we’re not allowed to tell you anything about them! That said, what we can tell you is that Chef Jeanette’s experience working for famed caterers like Joan’s on Third and Along Came Mary has made her a reliable, seasoned pro (no pun intended) who can serve thousands at a time or create a special evening for you and your family.

As intuitive as she is skilled, Jeanette’s dishes are the kind of creative masterpieces that make you want to try a little of everything. Whether it’s her edamame guacamole, her white beet carpaccio salad, or her spiced candied popcorn (which happens to be both vegan and gluten free), her worldliness and innovation shows in everything she does.

Not so surprising, given that her childhood was spent in Japan, her adolescence in Korea, and her college years in the U.S. Like most great chefs, she studied cooking in France and holds a certificate from Les Dames d’Escoffier, one of that country’s most prestigious organizations for female chefs.

In addition to her work creating food, this former nutritionist also writes about it, having contributed to cookbooks as well as the Los Angeles Times Syndicate. She is also a master gardener, so don’t be surprised if your meals are as beautiful as they are delicious!

— Bill S.

Chef Jeanette worked as our primary catering Chef for 7 years. She has proven herself to be an out-of-the-box thinker with cooking and preparing food items. She is my go-to chef when it comes to creating a unique menu, thinking about the logistics of handling large scale events and overall execution of the multiple aspects of our events. Chef Jeanette merely is excellent to work with and extremely easy to get along with. I strongly recommend Jeanette as a competent and knowledgeable Chef and wish her luck in her future endeavors.
