Hi there and thanks for stopping by! I’m Cheryl, Chef by day and Blogger by night!
I attended culinary school in New York and am a classically-trained Chef who worked in fine dining and high-end catering for over 13 years in New York City before leaving Brooklyn to relocate to Florida.
I started my own personal chef and catering business in 2013. Each week I create fresh, healthy menus for busy clients featuring local, seasonal foods.
I am the recipe writer, food & beverage tester, photographer and dishwasher at Pook’s Pantry where I blog about my life in food. My blog is about making great food accessible to every level of cook and taking the fear out of the kitchen by demonstrating that you don’t need to be a professional to make amazing and delicious meals at home.
My recipes have been featured on BuzzFeed, Shape magazine and HuffingtonPost Canada. I have a cookbook obsession and an unwavering love of sweets. Milk and cookies is still my favorite snack. When I’m not in the kitchen, you can find me in the saddle on my road bike or planning my next adventure!
