Learn how to prepare a feast while using every part of the required ingredients.
In an effort to minimize food waste, Chef Jenn is teaching this interactive cooking class that teaches you how to prepare a meal without leaving any food scraps.
For the first course, you'll deconstruct the deceivingly complex beet root plant, separating the root, stem and leaves and preparing them separately to compose your salad.
Your entrée and dessert will follow suit, using every bit of portobello mushrooms, broccoli and block of Parmesan to make black pepper portobello steaks, and using every part of an orange to bake orange spice cupcakes.
Guests are welcome to provide wine and beer to enjoy during the class.
With pistachios, mesclun greens, balsamic and blueberries
Black Pepper Portobello Steak
With broccoli, Parmesan, baby potatoes, cream and vegetable stock
Orange Spice Cupcakes
With flour, sugar, oil, eggs, butter and cream
Most dietary restrictions can be accommodated if noted prior to the event. Please mention this in the message field when you submit your booking request as adjustments to recipes cannot be made during class.
My fiancé and I absolutely loved learning from Jenn. She was super knowledgeable and really good at keeping us engaged in different cooking tasks and fun conversation throughout the whole night. We learned a ton and had some amazing food. By the end of the night, it felt like we had all known each other for a while and were just hanging out as friends. 11/10 would book with Jenn again!

Chef Jenn was so fun to hang out with and taught us a lot in our class! We will definitely take another class! We celebrated our friend’s 40th birthday and it was a perfect set up: being able to stay at home and everyone got to wear comfortable clothes. Would highly recommend the brunch session!

Chef Jenn was great. When she got into the kitchen she went right to work. She explained just what we were cooking and how it all went together. The meal, BBQ Jackfruit Ribs, OMG it was all so delicious. Jenn is 100% plant based. Couldnt ask for anything better. Thank you Jenn, it was just my pleasure to have you in my home. You are great fun.

Chef Jen taught us to make real from-scratch pasta and the most amazing sauce to go with it. She's so talented and a great teacher and made it a fun and relaxed night for all of us. My daughter (11) and my mom (70+) loved it equally and it was something we could all do together. Oh yeah and the dessert was wonderful too. We are already talking about next time!

Chef Jennifer's is great! She is so fun to work with and is an awesome instructor for anyone looking to step up their cooking. She is super knowledgeable about vegan and vegetarian food, and as someone who wants to eventually shift over to that, I was really great to work with her. Her food is delicious, and I highly recommend her to anyone in the area.

Jenn is one of the most talented chef's I have ever had the pleasure to work with. Her food is not only phenomenal but the love and care that goes into plating and execution is top notch. The creativity she has with vegan and vegetarian dishes is incredible. So many things I never thought I could have or experience she finds ways to create even with so many parameters from allergies and food preferences. Highly recommend!!

My fiance and I love Chef Jenn!! Whenever she has cooked us a meal, even though we were in the comfort of our home, we felt like we were at a Michelin-star restaurant (which Chef Jenn also has experience working in). Her food is always top-notch, and did I mention the presentation?
One of our most recent projects together was during my bachelorette party weekend. Jenn assisted with catering our dinner for about 15 girls and made us Buddha Bowls after our private yoga session. What I love most is that although her specialty is in vegan and vegetarian recipes, her knowledge is so diverse that she can cater to ANY diet or food preference. One of the highlights of my weekend was her Bloody Mary Bar. It was very aesthetically pleasing, the girls loved it, and her homemade mix was delicious!
Jenn is a joy to work with and incredibly talented and creative. I'm no chef, but she has genuinely taught me everything I know in the kitchen! I cannot recommend her enough.

Jenn is the best of the best! She is meticulous, creative, knowledgeable, easy to work with, friendly, and SUPER talented. She has a rich palate and is awesome with pairing!
28 Jun 2021
Jenn prepared meals for me on several occasions. Her culinary range was impressive, from some of my favorite comfort foods to introducing new worldly cuisines. Everything tasted so fresh with her vegetables, eggs and cheeses sourced from local farms. Jenn puts so much love into her foods and I would highly recommend her for your next dinner party or event!

With over 11yrs in the fine dinning industry, I can say with great confidence that your Chef dictates a large percentage of not only your future success, yet your guests happiness..
Her food is art. Not only beautiful to look at, its mouth watering-ly delicious...
I feel guilty bitting into Jens delicious creations because I know it took her hours to create..however, the feeling is quickly eclipsed bite, after bite, reminded once that food is the only reason to live for.
Dealing with Jen is exposing yourself to someone who is immensely passionate, and sincerely motivated to deliver the finest quality dish you have in mind. Small project, or grand scale; go ahead put her to the task
In the ever changing traditional/non-traditional food world, its refreshing to know a Chef that can cater to any event.
She does this all with professionalism and poise. Absolutely deserves my highest recommendation!
23 Jun 2021
Jenn is incredible! Always has such great recipes and really cares a lot about her customers requests. I definitely recommend Jenn for any culinary needs.

Jenn has the warmest personality in and out of the kitchen. Watching her grow as a person and a chef these last ten years has been an absolute pleasure. After becoming friends at Johnson and Wales University, I've watched Jenn as she has gone on her own nutritional journey as well as pursued food as a way to help others. She has catered events, been a personal chef, worked many late nights on the line, as well as ran her own business. Her talents shine through her passion of making sustainable dishes that are more then just good for you, they simply taste AMAZING! See for yourself and try some of her goodies!

Chef Jen did an amazing job catering for a recent family event. Food was awesome and all different types too… Great selection and great price too!!! Highly recommend her. It’s no wonder why they wanted her on “Hell’s Kitchen”!
