Inspired Healthy Delicious Food
Chef Lori Terry grew up in an Irish/Dutch family, where she learned at an early age that healthy eating was an essential part to a happy life. She began her career as a personal chef in 2003 shortly after visiting Paris and found herself weeping over her salmon in beurre blanc sauce. This unforgettable experience paired with her healthy eating habits unlocked her inner-chef.
For 16 years, Chef Lori has been cooking for private families and individuals in the Chicago area. She has had the pleasure to cook for such esteemed guests as: mayors, governors, ambassadors & presidential hopefuls. Chef Lori caters private dinner parties from 2-200. The last couple of years Lori's calendar has been filled with weddings, dinner parties, cooking classes, cooking competitions and writing her first cookbook.
Lori enjoys traveling all over Europe experiencing the many cultures, tastes and culinary styles. She often visits local street markets and learns international food traditions from local cooks. Most recently, Lori had the pleasure of cooking alongside chefs in Tuscany, Italy and Valencia, Spain.
For me, cooking is...
my passion and lifestyle. It is a way for me to express myself and to help others connect while making delicious food memories.
I learned to cook at...
my own pace alongside family members. I started a supper club in college for Sunday dinners. It got so big, I had to charge people to attend!
A role model in the kitchen is...
my family and Antony Bourdain.
A cooking secret...
Using the freshest ingredients with care.

Chef Lori's reviews
Chef Lori Terry was fantastic. The food was great and Chef Lori was a pleasure to work with. We asked for an Italian Steakhouse-style meal and Lori was flexible in adjusting the menu to suit our preferences. At our event, Lori was very nice and personable. She engaged our kids in making the fresh pasta which was a highlight for them and we all enjoyed watching her work. The food was excellent. Lori also brought additional off-menu appetizers which were a nice bonus. Everyone really enjoyed the meal and we'd love to have another opportunity to hire Lori. Thanks for a great meal.
