For me, cooking is...
More than food. It’s the one thing that brings together any racial, religious, gender or generational gaps. Food is the binder of life.
I learned to cook at...
I’d like to think of my cooking skills as inherited. I have many family influences however I refined my skill through study.
A role model in the kitchen is...
A creative culinary nomad. I am not afraid to experiment.
A cooking secret...
Flavors, each step is an opportunity to sprinkle.

Chef Meika's reviews
Chef Mimi was incredible. We had such a great experience. She was personable and seemed very comfortable in our kitchen. It never felt awkward having someone else in the apartment. The food was delicious! Would strongly recommend the creole style menu!

Valentine’s Day is my favorite holiday and close attention is taken in every detail. Chef Meika exceeded my expectations in food quality, professional and vision that aligned with my menu expectations. I look forward to working with her again in the future.

Chef Meika exceeded my expectations. She was super nice, very thorough and was punctual. My baby's birthday surprise was beyond perfect as she was the one who suggested that I tell him to come over to so that he could be a part of the experience. Her explanation of the dishes were thorough and the presentation was amazing. She made great use of my space and was so so sweet and professional. I loved the fact that she was very clean and sanitary. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking to get a personal chef in the Dallas area. Bravo! I'm so glad that I found Take a Chef.
