About Me

My name is Jaime Jeffrey, and I bring with me my 15 years of professional culinary training and experience.
With a degree in Culinary Arts and Management from the Art Institute of New York, I am a self-taught food enthusiast with years of experience as a catering chef, pastry chef, cocktail chef, and a personal chef.
I worked for and with the best! From prominent catering companies like Abigail Kirsch & Starr Catering Group to Michelin Star restaurants like Aureole and a gem like Beauty & Essex.
Cooking for me came naturally, I love to make people happy with beautifully prepared and delicious food. With my Caribbean background, I make amazing curried dishes and island specialties, but I love to cook Italian food. I’m not just talking the endless different type of pasta dishes you can make, I am talking about Shortrib Ragu, and a fantastic meatball recipe you would think grandma was in the kitchen.
With a passion for food and a strong desire to prepare delicious, healthy and fresh meals, I want to bring a restaurant experience home to you.

  • Chef Jaime was fantastic. She came over to cook a 3 course meal for 8 for my wife’s birthday. Dinner was served right on time and the kitchen was spotless afterwards. The food was delicious and the event was a huge hit. I’ll be passing her information to friends and family for their own future events. Highly recommend.

  • Chef Jaime was amazing. She showed up nice and early to make sure she prepped for the evening properly. She was clean, hard working, and the food showed for it. We chose the farrow and fig salad, the salmon and the apple tart. We couldn’t have been happier. We had significant leftovers as well which was great for lunch. She spent just as much time making prepping and cooking as she did making sure the house was as clean as it was when she arrived. She made a beautiful menu for us, plated and set the table, and cleaned up after every course. Will be passing her information on to all of our friends and family and will absolutely use her again! Thank you for an amazing birthday experience Jaime!

  • Jaime was amazing! Our babysitter canceled and we were determined not to let it ruin our 5 year anniversary. Jaime came over and set up our table beautifully. We sat in our “cocktail lounge” (living room) and enjoyed the wonderful smell of her cooking with a drink in hand while our baby slept. Jaime was right on time with the first course at 6pm as requested. It was a delicious seafood soup, the steak dinner was perfectly cooled and the flourless chocolate cake with mixed berries for dessert hit the spot. She stayed after and cleaned up beautifully. We had the best night. We would definitely book Jaime again and highly recommend her.

  • She is definitely the best person to work with. She is extremely accommodating and experienced. She is the cleanest chef I’ve ever encountered and left my kitchen spotless before leaving.

    Now for the food. We picked this chef due to her Caribbean background and she did not disappoint. The jerk chicken was seasoned with authentic Jamaican flavors. The rice and peas and escovitch swim around were good in flavor as well as the rum cake.

    We felt we received much more than we had anticipated and paid for. Truly wonderful experience.
