Welcome to love. cook. nourish

love. cook. nourish. is a personal chef service owned and operated by Cindy Jakel-Smith and her family. Their vision is to provide a personal chef to design and create delicious confections and meals for your special event. It is their goal to make nutritious, wholesome food that is Cindylicious!

It all started with a love for food and people. Cindy has been baking and creating wedding cakes and pastries for over 20 years and has been a private chef for the past 10 years.

Each menu is personalized for the client, theme, location, and budget and is never the same twice (unless by request of the client). Creativity is a must; Cindy’s motto has always been that the food must taste as good as it looks. Attention to detail and caring, professional service are hallmarks of  love. cook. nourish.
