Meet Chicago’s Favorite Personal Chef Leslie Guria
Cooking for others has always been my passion. I love everything about it from choosing interesting recipes to shopping for just the right ingredients to seeing the smile on my guest’s faces when they’ve finished a memorable meal I’ve prepared just for them. So when it was time to move on from nearly two decades of sales and marketing, I knew a career as a Chicago Personal Chef was the path for me to follow and I’ve been doing just that since 2010!
As a home chef, I don’t really have specialty other than making home prepared meals for hungry clients. I make comfort food, healthy food, ethnic food, breakfast, lunch and dinner. I create and adapt recipes for those with dietary restrictions/allergies including gluten free, diary free, peanut free, soy free, (essentially name your allergen), as well as special diets for cancer patients, transplant patients, low iodine diets, vegan, vegetarian, diabetic, dietician specified diet plans, Paleo, the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, Weight Watchers, the Blood Type Diet, South Beach, Atkins, Kosher, American Heart Association and others. As a former Brownie leader and Sunday school teacher, I know how to work with kids and create meals they will appreciate and enjoy.
Since 2011, I have been a member of and certified through the American Personal and Private Chef Association, certified as a ServSafe Food Protection Manager and carry liability insurance. My food service experience includes working as a Chef’s Assistant at Whole Foods’ Salud Cooking School and in several restaurants including 220 Merrill, the Grand Traverse Resort and BDJ’s Deli.
And…as a working mom, I understand the not so subtle urge to pull over and grab Subway when you’re schlepping multiple kids to and from their sports and school activities. Making a healthy dinner that can be adapted to everyone’s schedule and preferences after a full day of work is the last thing I have the energy to do. If I only had a Personal Chef!
