About Chef Jillian - Jillian Fae Chef Services
Jillian Fae believes her passion for cooking stems from the fact that she was born and raised in Southern California. The best climate conditions for growing the finest produce all year around and the diverse mix of cuisines have always been an inspiration to her. Her love for and ability to make people happy by way of good food began at an early age and still grows today. She pursued her passion and further sharpened her skills by enrolling in the culinary program at Orange Coast College in Costa Mesa, California. During her time there, she volunteered for multiple extracurricular activities and charity events, excelled in her class, and was chosen to be a part of the ACF competing student team. After she and her teammates won the state and regional competitions, they went on to the National Competition to win a gold medal. It was after these accomplishments that Jillian established Jillian Fae Chef Services, a personal chef business offering private on-site events as well as weekly in-home meal preparation. The business currently serves most of Southern California and is based out of the city of Temecula. She is dedicated to providing people with the best quality food and best service possible and specializes in creating seasonal menus customized to each individual client’s needs and desires.
