About Me

My name is Jaime, 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.

  • My family hired Chef Jaime to surprise my mother in law for her birthday and we were in for a treat. Chef Jaime catered this intimate birthday dinner in the utmost professional manner and fínese that shined through her plating presentation for our dinner. During the process, we connected with Chef Jaime prior to the event to discuss logistics and we were impressed with the amount of ease that we got. For a 7:00pm sit down dinner, Chef Jaime showed up at our home at 3:00pm and came prepare with all of the ingredients and utensils that were needed to cook out lavish meal. She prepared a 4 course meal in a matter of 5 hours and everything was beyond delicious. After each course she packed away the leftovers in containers and away in the refrigerator. At the end of the night she cleaned the entire kitchen and left it spotless. I HIGHLY recommend Chef Jaime for an out of the world experience. I have dined at various Michelin star rated restaurants and her attention to detail and flavors exceeded those experiences.

  • Chef Jamie was a joy from the beginning her spirit, warmth, and overall personality was lovely from our first conversation. She was informative and open to all my questions & concerns. I appreciate her detail to my moms vegan diet. The flavorful food and textures paired so well together as we moved from course to course we couldn’t stop praising each dish, especially the ravioli. And to top it off the carrot cake dessert was amazing!!! Hands down I am appreciative that Jamie was integral part of my moms 77th birthday celebration. If you are debating, DON’T... Book Her!

    Thank you Chef!

  • I can’t say enough about how amazing this experience was! The whole process was so easy - from selecting our menu, our budget, and our chef. We worked with Chef Jaime and she absolutely exceeded our expectations! Chef Jaime went above and beyond - she set up a beautiful table display, served us right on time, and honestly left the kitchen even cleaner than it was when she got there. Everyone was so impressed with how delicious the food was and the presentation was beautiful. Each course was better than the next and she even served us the extra food that she had family style in addition to our individual portions. We will definitely be booking again!

  • Wanted to throw my wife a special dinner for her birthday and Chef Jaime certainly exceeded my expectations. She discussed all our options while planning the meal and service, and everyone enjoyed the absolutely delicious meal and apps she and her assistant Nickie prepared. My wife and I have been to great restaurants, some Michelin rated, and no question Chef could work in any of those kitchens. They arrived when expected and delivered an incredible experience that my wife will cherish for a long time. We they departed they left our kitchen spotless, probably cleaner than ever. I would highly recommend her to anyone desiring a 5 star experience.

  • Could not have had a better experience, the food was absolutely incredible and Jaime was such a wonderful person. Would 100% recommend to friends and family and we will be dinning with Jaime again soon. I have had many professional chefs come to our home and cook for us, Jaime was by far, undisputed, the most skilled chef we have had the privilege of dining with. CAN NOT SPEAK HIGHLY ENOUGH ABOUT JAIME BOOK NOW!!!!

  • Chef Jaime cooked a 40th Anniversary dinner for our parents. She was very friendly and easy to work with leading up to the dinner. And our parents raved about how wonderful she was. They loved all 4 courses both in taste and presentation. She was happy to engage in conversation but also comfortable making herself at home in their kitchen - and left it spotless before she departed. 10 out of 10 would recommend.

  • Jaime, the whole meal and experience was fantastic. It could not have been better. Food was incredible (cannot emphasise this enough), Jaime was professional and great to have around and the whole experience (dressing the table with rose petals etc for my wIfe’s birthday) was great. We will definitely be doing again.

  • Chef Jaime was AMAZING. Immediately as she entered my home, I felt like I’ve known her for years! She was so polite and professional. Her attention to detail was totally unexpected, and much appreciated. The little details that she included such as flowers, and the table settings were a plus! Our menu included the heirloom salad, coconut crusted snapper w/mango salsa, jasmine rice, and a Caribbean veggie medley. For dessert we had her southern bread pudding with spicy bourbon sauce. Although we only had a three-course meal, we were stuffed before dessert was served! Saying her food was phenomenal is an understatement. I will be referring her to ALL of my friends and family. I can’t wait to hire her again. Thanks Jaime!!

We typically love dining out to make birthdays and anniversaries a special occasion, but this was just as wonderful. The food Chef Jamie prepared was delicious! We ate every bite and we’re excited to find the leftovers she had packed away for us in our kitchen the next morning! She came prepared with everything to make our night special including table chargers, flowers and candles! She was so personable and make our evening delightful! I also can’t say enough about how delicious everything was! And she left the kitchen cleaner than when she arrived! We will definitely be requesting her again in the future! Thank you!

  • I literally cannot say enough wonderful things about chef Jaime. From the start of the experience she was extremely professional and sweet. She put together a phenomenal menu. The day of the event it rained on my outdoor dinner and she let us wait out the rain and dry the table cloths off. When it rained a second time she was flexible and helped me adapt the dinner to inside. She did everything in her power to help me make the event a success. The dinner was so phenomenal no one even cared about the earlier chaos. Everything about it was perfect. I look forward to working with her again in the future.

  • 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.

    • Worked on February 5, 2020
  • 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.
