Welcome to The Intuitive Chef, a Los Angeles based personal chef natural foods service

Jennifer is a natural foods chef, cooking class instructor, and licensed clinical social worker who prepares wholesome culinary experiences. Her cooking philosophy incorporates the following values:

  • All natural whole foods. No high fructose corn syrup, partially hydrogenated oils, GMO’s, artificial coloring, or hormones in your dairy or meat. In other words, real food.

  • Local, seasonal, and sustainable fare. Jennifer is passionate about supporting local farmers and making conscious food choices.

  • Food that nourishes you. Because of her expertise in customizing food that resonates with each client, your experience will energize and rejuvenate you.

  • Delicious multicultural cuisine. Jennifer’s diverse expertise in various culinary styles ranges from Thai curries to Italian dishes to comfort food. Cooking with less-than ordinary ingredients is her status quo: quinoa, cashew cream, home-made nut milks, gluten-free flours, and coconut oil.

  • Personalized menus. Jennifer does not have a ‘standard’ menu. Rather, she will employ her intimate knowledge of delicious, healthful cuisine for which she is known and customize a menu just for you.

  • Green culinary practices. Jennifer abides by the highest environmentally sustainable culinary practices. She is well-versed in sustainable fish and meat, high-heat compostable products, carbon offsets, eco-friendly cleaning products, and much more. Upon request, your event can be an entirely carbon neutral affair.

How can The Intuitive Chef improve the quality of your life?

  • Do you feel a sense of dread when 5pm hits and your children ask, “Mom, what’s for dinner?”

  • Are you sick of greasy, over-priced delivery meals?

  • Are meal times stressful and chaotic, since everyone in your home eats different things at different times?

  • Are you (or any member of your family) on a special diet and wish you could have delicious, customized food (including gluten free, dairy free, vegan, and Paleo) prepared exactly to your preference?

  • Do you wish you had the time, energy, and desire to learn how to cook, but it’s just not your thing?

  • Do you ever imagine what it would be like to have a refrigerator stocked with delicious, nutritious meals and side dishes for the week?

If you answered “yes” to one or more of the above questions, then you could definitely benefit with a session from The Intuitive Chef!

Have me come into your home and prepare delicious and healthy

meals for the week, cater your next special event, or provide nutritional and life coaching so your body and soul can thrive!

Warmly,

Created to hold all things “dirty,” the Tidy Tote does just that. Just think of it as a cousin to the wet bag. The Tidy Tote is designed to keep your dirty stuff away from your clean stuff. What do you do with the dirty play clothes from the park, the sandy flip flops from the beach, the favorite teddy bear that falls on the bathroom floor? Put it in your Tidy Tote! Peace of mind will come knowing that all things dirty are being contained and away from the things you worked so hard to get clean. Try it out! You’ll love the pull out lining because a quick rinse or quick shake out is all it takes to get the inside ready to hold the next big mess. We hope you can enjoy the luxury of a simple life.
