About Our Chef

How did you start getting into this line of work?

My culinary journey started when  I was about 7 years old,  I attended a small private school in Tacoma, WA, and it was there that the "lunch lady"  Cora, would allow me to help her prepare meals. It would be small tasks like counting silverware or napkins, but watching her cook I felt I was looking at magician. A sprinkle of this, a dash of this... and her knife skills, amazed me. But my favorite part of  getting to taste test everything, oh boy I hit the jackpot!  I had to learn, and she taught even to this day over 20 years later she still can't get rid of me

How does your service stand out?

Everything is home made from scratch, from my sauces to baked goods. I put my signature on everything that leaves my kitchen. Food is my passion, something that I take pride in and every dish reflects that.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

The smells. Since I was a little girl, I've always loved the aromas escaping from my Great grandmother's kitchen. Her cobblers, fresh bread, even her seafood gumbo would cause everyone in the neighborhood to invite themselves to dinner lol and her doors were never closed.

This was the first time Chantel and her team had catered an event of this service style and they completed it with a smile every step of the way. They served nearly 2,000 runners and their family members following a 5K fundraiser for cancer. Cannot thank them enough for their time, service, and generosity!

The Goliath Campaign

My name is Chantel Jackson and I am an Giantslayer. In the entrepreneur world a  Giant is something that stands before us , something that is so great and powerful and seem as though they cannot be defeated,  whether it be capital, support, fear and resources, but I am here to tell you that with faith and determination we can slay any giant.

In Tacoma, the beloved city of destiny, one of those giants is having a commissary kitchen that can hold and support small food businesses. The purpose of this campaign is to raise funds for a commissary kitchen, that serves as an incubator to small food businesses. It will be the pillar of the community, where students can learn to run a food truck, package goods, host cooking classes, tastings , pop- up events and much more. 

As you can imagine, building a commercial kitchen is an expensive project, and we need your help to acquire the much needed equipment. This includes: convection ovens, gas cooking ranges, stainless steel work tables, food-grade shelving, baker's speed racks, sinks, sanitizing dishwasher, lights, sheet pans, and much, much more.
