Nourish’d Cafe Founder

"Jessica consulted with us to create our Winter menu. In this process she trained a team of 10 staff members on how to prepare and plate the dishes. She helped us cater for the launch of the winter menu and the launch of a new shop, preparing plant based canapes. She has an outstanding eye for vegan food creation. She collaborated with local suppliers (herbiraw and golden greens) to create fresh and delicious items for the cafe. She blew us away! She went above and beyond with managing the launch of the menu and managing our team throughout the entire process. As a freelance chef and consultant her skills are exceptional and she’s such a hard worker, motivated and efficient. We would definitely use her services again without a doubt!"
