Private Chef In New Orleans

Chef Jewel Robinson

Get to know me better

I work hard at creating wonderful food, one plate at a time.


Equally at home in the cosmopolitan culinary world of New York as she is in the simplicity of the Bayou, Jewel Robinson’s love of cooking has its roots in the passion for good food that is at the heart of her Creole and Carribean heritage. That passion inspired her to hone her talent in the Big Apple, where she eventually worked alongside superstar chefs Mario Batali and Tyler Florence.

Chef Robinson realized a dream in 1990 and became an entrepreneur by opening her own catering business, Catering By Jewel, in NYC. She coordinated and conducted private catering events for stars such as Jennifer Lopez, Marc Anthony, and Kanye West. In addition, she served as the personal chef for Mrs. Randolph Hearst and former New York Knicks stand-out Latrell Sprewell. As word of her talent and creativity spread, Essence Magazine sought her expertise in providing first-rate food and superb service for celebrity cover models Janet Jackson, Queen Latifah and Angela Bassett during cover shoots.

Chef Jewel's reviews

Jewel was excellent. From beginning to end everything was perfect!! My nine friends were very impressed and loved the meal. It was a great night and would do it again.

Chef Jewel was amazing! I threw a bachelorette party for a group of 11 women (all in our late 20's early 30's) and chef Jewel cooked us a delicious, high end Mexican feast. There was plenty of food to go around and each dish provided a new spin on a "mainstream Mexican dish". There was such a wide variety of taste and texture. Even the dessert was delicious! All of my guests were able to try new things we have never eaten before and we loved it! I would highly recommend Chef Jewel. Not only is she skillful in the kitchen but she was a pleasure to plan and work with.
