About Me

I’ve always held a passion for food, even at a young age I had known that I wanted to be a chef. In my life, I’ve strived to be a healthy balanced person, carrying with me a foundation of meditation and spiritual practice. I feel that what we eat is one gateway to achieving this complete nourishment; therefore, it brings me great joy to create flavorful, fresh and wholesome meals. I work closely with farmers who also share my respect and reverence for the oneness of all beings. As a chef with ten years experience and working many angles of the food industry, I am dedicated to creating and teaching others how to prepare food that is tasty, conscious and healing. I graduated from Culinary School in San Francisco in 2011 with a Culinary Arts Degree. From there, I worked for restaurants, catering companies, wineries, and retirement communities. I most recently served as an Executive Chef with San Diego State University for the past five years. My other passion is teaching. I offer cooking classes in over twelve different cuisine types. As far as my cooking style goes, I have always enjoyed preparing plant-based and organic dishes with healthy, clean and vibrant ingredients. You can expect to experience dishes full of flavor, utilizing fresh herbs and spices, with a quality presentation to match the taste. Meals I prepare incorporate holistic health with a balance of nutrients, healthy fats, proteins and superfoods.

  • Chef Jordan was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. From helping to personalize the menu for the evening he was very helpful and accommodated every need from diet restrictions to making homemade Mac and cheese for the children. So satisfied with the food and the experience. Also, to boot we left with tons of leftovers! And we love leftovers! Thank you for making it a wonderful evening Chef Jordan!

  • Chef Jordan was a pleasure to work with. He was punctual and went above and beyond, making 3 different types of entrees based off different people’s dietary restriction to accommodate everyone. His dessert was incredible. He even took leftover snacks we had and gave them to a homeless area on his way home from our dinner. All in all, 10/10 would recommend! You’d be lucky to have Chef Jordan as your chef.

  • Chef Jordan was amazing. He cooked a fabulous meal for my daughter's bday. All of our guests couldn't stop raving about the delicious brunch we had. He not only made a great meal but left us with lots of leftovers to enjoy the next day. If your looking for a friendly and talented chef you must hire Chef Jordan, you will not be dissapointed.

  • Jordan was an absolutely phenomenal chef. Creative with the menu, excellent flavors, quality cooking and a joy to work with. I asked Jordan to cook for my wife and I for our 20th anniversary and he knocked it out of the park. He was easy and friendly to work with when we created the menu. He provided a great dinner experience for us, friendly and helpful throughout. The whole interaction from beginning to end was seamless. I cannot recommend Jordan enough. We are already talking about having him come in for a private cooking lesson for our family to learn from him. 5 stars.

  • Chef Jordan pulled off an amazing coursed wedding night dinner for 11 people. Since rescheduling and adjusting our wedding plans due to the pandemic, we were really hoping for it to be something special and Jordan really pulled through for us. He was communicative, flexible and friendly leading up to the event and extraordinary friendly throughout the even, even though he was busy! Would love to book him again for a future event.

  • Chef Jordan was excellent from start to finish. Communication, on time, delicious meal. We couldn’t have asked for a better Chef for my husbands 50th birthday.

  • Thank you Chef Jordan for creating such a special evening for our 4 year wedding anniversary. Everything was perfect and the food was fabulous! I was so impressed the chef could come
    into a very bare kitchen and make such a wonderful meal! Even with broken appliances he made it work with a smile on!
    I can not recommend Chef Jordan enough! I can’t wait to have another event with him!

  • We were so impressed with Chef Jordan, the meal he prepared for us, and the whole experience! Our dinner was for a birthday party, and Chef Jordan tailored the menu perfectly to the birthday boy’s tastes, so much so that the birthday boy is hoping to make plans to do some cooking with Chef Jordan in the future.

    Before the meal, the chef was very responsive, sent a personalized note with his proposal, and responded quickly to questions about the event. On the day of the dinner, the chef communicated with us clearly about when he’d be there and brought with him everything he needed to make our fantastic meal. The chef was very personable, shared with us why he chose many of the ingredients, and talked to us about the nutritional benefits of all of what he cooked.

    Lastly, the food was AMAZING! The chef provided non-vegan options for those of us who are not vegan, but we all agreed that we would have been completely happy and satisfied with the fully vegan meal. The chef clearly knew his craft to a masterful level. Those of us visiting from out of town wish we lived in San Diego so we could eat Chef Jordan’s cooking again!

    Thanks, Chef Jordan!

  • Jordan provided us with a DELICIOUS and healthy dinner for a date night. It was fun to watch him prepare dinner, and awesome to get upscale dining in your own kitchen. He also left us with plenty of leftovers which were great for a midnight snack. We will definitely hire Jordan again for dinner parties in the future. Highly recommend!

  • Chef Jordan and his team completely wowed all our guests! The food tasted amazing, was elegantly presented and most of all they were so flexible and accommodating making them a total pleasure to work with. We hosted a party with about 20 guests (with specific dietary restrictions) and Chef Jordan was more than willing to work with us to customize to our needs. Our party was running later than planned but they stuck with us through the end and were true partners in making our event successful. They even helped clean up everything and pack up leftovers after our guests left. We truly appreciate Chef Jordan and his team going above and beyond and we will absolutely be working with them again!

  • This wasn’t the first time we’ve hired a private chef for an event but this time with Jordan was exceptional- I was thoroughly impressed. Aside from being punctual and courteous, his food was impeccable. Perfectly seasoned and perfectly catered to our preferences. We hosted a brunch at the house for 6 of our friends and a couple young children. It was a tapas inspired menu served in a casual outdoor setting with a couple dietary restrictions. Jordan proposed a menu and delivered on every aspect from the start. Our friends couldn’t get enough and very much enjoyed the menu selections. They were all happily stuffed. I would definitely recommend Jordan. You will not be disappointed!
