Meet our chef

Passioneats overall goal is to become Chicagoland’s best one-stop caterer. To be a company admired for its values,
and standards to all our clients.  Our future endeavor is to acquire our own banquet facility that will allow us to
provide good home cooked meals for churches, businesses, not-for- profit organizations, weddings, reunions,
anniversary parties, and all other special occasions.  Lastly, our plan is to give back to the community by educating
young people between the age of 5-25 who have a passion and desire to learn the process of proper food handling
and cooking techniques in an effort to spread the passionEats experience as far and wide as humanly possible.

My passion and love of cooking was cultivated by my husband’s grandmother Mrs. Bobbie Wilson of Dora,
Alabama.  As I expressed my desire to cook more than just good fried chicken and spaghetti, she would take the
time to do meal planning, stay on the phone while I grocery shopped, and coached me through the process of
preparing many successful meals.  After mastering the basics, I soon began cooking for many family gatherings and
it seems like overnight my home became the “go to” place for family and friends. Traditional potlucks soon turned
into everyone giving me money to prepare entire meals.  Again, this may seem like a chore to some – but for me
cooking soon became a form of therapy.  To see people coming together to enjoy what I prepared and show their
appreciation for my labor of love, was truly self-satisfying.

After being a hair stylist for 15 years and the owner and operator of my own salon for 12 years, the desire to
expand my horizons grew, which lead me my new venture and that is cooking.  Even though I did not mind cooking
for the enjoyment of others, the entrepreneur in me would not allow me to lie dormant on this new endeavor.  It
all started with me selling what is now one of passionEats signature dishes “White Chicken Chili.”  I made my first
pot and it was so delicious.  I took the leftovers from that one pot of “White Chicken Chili” and sold it in my salon.
 The response was amazing and so I starting preparing different dishes and selling at the salon on the weekends.
And, I can honestly say the demand became greater than the supply.  We soon began taking orders from schools,
churches, businesses, the rest is history. After cluttering my house with products, supplies, and food that was not
for domestic purposes, I saw the need to acquire a space to operate my newly formed business.  So, in March of
2017 – passionEats opened its doors @ 915 W. 87th Street.

Since its conception, it has been the goal of passionEats to provide high quality service to every meal. Our brand is
committed to catering to the body, spirit, mind, soul, and taste buds of every consumer we serve.  We pride
ourselves on excellence in taste, presentation, service and consistency.  We want everyone to speak positively
about their experience with our brand.  I personally oversee every aspect of the operation to ensure we deliver the
highest level of quality.  I also personally train and develop my staff to ensure passionEats provides an excellent
experience weather it’s a small party or large extravaganza.
