Who is amycaseycooks? I am personal chef, recipe developer and food writer. Cooking is my passion. For as long as I can remember, I have spent time in the kitchen perfecting my culinary craft. I am self taught with over 45 years of cooking experience in home kitchens, restaurants and cafes, educational systems, and retail establishments. Learn more about Amy Casey……
Growing up in the western suburbs of Chicago, my cooking reflects my Midwestern roots. Many of my recipes are homey, comforting dishes but, with a modern twist. I tend to cook relatively healthy dishes but, will in sneak cheesy Mile High Lasagna or a decadent chocolate dessert like French Silk Pie from time to time.
The Jersey Shore is now my home, and there is no place I would rather be. A beautiful beach coupled with a quaint Main Street and friendly locals make the little town of Manasquan a gem along the Atlantic Ocean.
As a personal chef, I serve clients along the northern Jersey Shore. My personal chef business opened 2007. I prepare healthy, delicious, and homemade meals for my clients. Each client gets my undivided attention as I plan their menus based on the tastes preferences and dietary concerns.
As a food writer I worked as the food columnist for the New Jersey Herald for 6 years. My column featured recipes I prepare for my clients. All of the recipes are my original creations and are featured in my cooking videos.
I am the author of 2 blogs including the 5 year project of Dinners for a Year and Beyond. The labor of love was an online cookbook for my family and friends. It chronicled the dinners and reviews of my cooking for our 2 daughters, son and my husband. My most recent recipes can be found under the Recipes tab of this website and are client favorites from my works with over 100 personal chef clients. I include personal chef culinary tips so you can be your own at home chef.
I am a member of the United States Personal Chef Association and I am licensed, insured and ServSafe certified.
