About this pro

Welcome!! Hi, my name is Jazmyne. I am a chef with a serious passion for food and teaching. I am a graduate of The Arts Institute Culinary Arts program. After graduating, I discovered a passion for teaching and passing down what I learned in school. Food is a universal language we all speak. It is also a great bonder, so if you're looking to make family time more special, or even want to do something for your significant other, I am your girl! I offer virtual one-on-one sessions, and recipes as well.  

My favorite part about my work is watching people become excited about food. I believe cooking should be fun! Food is amazing, and a wonderful way to bring people together. You can learn a lot about a person from their food. Food is also a looking glass into the different cultures of the world. Let's explore the world together!

    When I first met Jazmyne it was last year, she was working in a restaurant as my server. She was soooo passionate about the food she was talking about, you'd almost thought it was her restaurant and menu. I asked her if she cooked and she said yes, and explained how she wanted to be a personal chef and loved teaching and sharing her knowledge. Immediately I was intrigued because I could not cook. My husband and kids hated my food, lol. Thanks to Jazmyne my kids now LOVE my food, husband included. I've been working with Jazz for almost 2 years now, I like to come back and tap in with her. She is ALWAYS learning new things, recipes, and always excited to pass them on to me. I also, buy her recipes as well, they vary in difficulty and cuisine type, she has it all honestly. She never makes the more difficult things seem intimidating. The sweetest person I've ever met, I will keep coming back! You should definitely check her out!

    I contacted Jazz to learn to make meals for not only myself but my friends! My friends and I do lots of dinners and game nights together and I was tired of being the only one bringing store bought foods and making basic dishes! :(.... I heard about Jazz through a mutual friend and she has definitely helped me broaden my “food horizons”. She was very sweet and patient with me , she allowed me to take my time when learning how to make the food and I asked A LOT of questions.. I strongly recommend!! You will not be disappointed!



FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I would introduce myself, let them get to know a little about me. Next, I would like to know what are you looking to learn or gain from working with me. Set expectations and goals. Then the magic happens!

I am a graduate of The Arts Institute's Culinary Arts Program.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

No, pricing varies based upon group size and meal, while recipes on the other hand start at $5.


How did you get started teaching?

While in school, I would always go home and repeat EVERYTHING my professor told me to my mother. Not only did it further help solidify the knowledge in my head, but it also showed me that I want to teach. I was excited to show and tell her all I knew, and that feeling has never left. It makes me excited to think I could reach a world of people and show them my passion, all while hopefully showing some people a fire they didn't know they had in themselves.

So far I have worked with professionals, athletes, single parents, and senior citizens.
