Jackie Freeman is a professional chef with over 20 years of experience in the culinary industry. She has been a line cook, cheese maker and farm hand, private chef, caterer, culinary instructor, food stylist, recipe developer and editor, and a radio and video personality.
Her work spans the range of testosterone-fueled restaurant kitchens, exotic (and not-so-exotic) destinations as a private chef, a borderline hippie cheese maker and farmhand, a somewhere-between-strict-and-funny culinary instructor, a recipe developer with over 900 recipes under her testing belt, a quirky TV and radio personality, a detail-oriented food stylist, and a culinary writer.
More importantly, Jackie cooks every day for her growing (in both number and appetites) family, while managing a freelance career, schlepping kids to-and-from school and activities, and finding a moment or two to go for a run. She brings her unique viewpoint of exacting recipe development skills and professional culinary experience and combines it with just being a regular mom trying to get a healthy, tasty, and somewhat efficient meal on the table before the kids have a meltdown.
