I have known Chef Jackie for more than eleven years. I am a property manager in Rancho Santa Fe. Jackie is innovative and creative. She listens and adapts well to people with restrictions and their needs she is also very dependable and loves to serve. Trustworthy and hard working best describes Chef Jackie. I highly recommend Chef Jackie without hesitation for all of your events and private dinners. Bon appetit!

Jacky is an excellent chef, on time, reliable, trustworthy and takes instructions well. She does not have an attitude as some chefs have and is easy to work with.

I would rehire her in a minute! She was fabulous with her
team (under her direction). She is a leader yet “humble”.
