From menu planning to catered events Chef Jessica can help you with your nourishment needs.
Chef Jessica Leibovich has been offering customized chef services in the San Diego area for over fourteen years. She was named San Diego's Best Personal Chef by San Diego Magazine in 2002 and since then has continued to offer premium services customized to specific requirements. Regardless of your dietary situation, she can make it easier than you can ever imagine and the taste is incredible and delicious.
Jessica has a extensive background that started with a Culinary Arts degree from Johnson and Wales University in 1997 and then she went on to study in Burgundy, France at La Varenne and was immersed in the classic French cooking. She earned a certificate in Contemporary Cuisine Cooking from scratch every day for months at a time while touring goat farms, grand cru vineyards, and visiting two and three star Michelin restaurants. This is where her foundation in cooking from the land began but she still had no idea the power the food she was cooking had for our health. When Chef Jessica returned to the states, she settled in San Diego, CA for her love of the sense of community and the beautiful nature. She worked for several years at Waters Catering as a sous chef and continued to fine tune her knowledge for cooking from scratch. Waters has impeccable quality and works closely with local farms, and premium quality purveyors. It was eye opening the substantial amount of local produce available year round, it meshed closely with the time she spent in Europe.
In January of 2000, Jessica launched Entree Nous, a Personal Chef and In-Home Catering Service. For 14 years she has fine tuned her cooking skills. Her clients have included a variety of different people. Many people who have to be on "special" diets (although these are becoming more and more the norm these days) have gone to her for help including professional athletes, cancer patients, kids with epilepsy, candida sufferers, and others.
In 2004, Chef Jessica began to learn about food as healing for disease reversal specifically cancer and diabetes. Food healing has become her passion and while she is by no means a "purist", she understands the power the food has to heal our bodies.
Meal Preparation is $600 plus groceries for 6 meals. These are prepared in two separate dates of 3 and 3 or 4 and 2. All meals are customized according to dietary preferences. To begin meal preparation services, please download the client assessment form, fill it out, and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. I will send you my next 3 available cook dates and a list of seasonal menu suggestions based on your requirements.
If you desire, you will receive a complete honest assessment of your nutrition and help you come up with a meal plan that fits your lifestyle and is manageable and works with with your schedule. I do not believe in ever removing anything out of your diet completely (if you do not want) to unless it is a sensitivity issue. I just try to teach you ways to minimize cravings and change small habits to allow us to eat more for nutrition while still rewarding ourselves with our favorites sweets or gratification that also add some level of enjoyment to our lives. I offer any level of service you need from the basic assessment, menu planning, private cooking lessons, and of course meal preparation.
I work with all those who have weight loss and nutrition goals. This includes those injuries, medical conditions, and pre and post natal. I have over 14 years of experience with nutrition, menu planning, and professional cooking for those with various health and dietary issues.
