Chef Teo


Meet Chef Teo.
“Food shouldn’t just be a meal. It should be an experience!”
A DMV Native with over 20 years of culinary experience. She grew up in the
kitchen shadowing the women in her family and learned to grow food in her
Southern Grandmother’s Garden. For Chef Teo, cooking has been
her passion ever since she was a little girl. She loved the way it smelled, the
sound of the food sizzling in a pan, & how her Mother and Grandmothers would
transform ingredients right before her eyes. At 6 years old she’d attentively watch
them cook in amazement. And wouldn’t hesitate to jump in to help every chance
she got.
After graduating high school, she went right to work in the Food Industry. She
worked for several restaurants that specialized in a broad range of cuisines.
From Italian and classic American to a variety of Caribbean specialties.
Her passion for food led her to learning more than just preparation. She also puts
an emphasis on the history and origins of ingredients. This focus on going
beyond the finished result and focusing more on what’s actually in the product
has brought many new, fun, and delicious dishes to the table. She insists on only
using the freshest, highest quality ingredients & makes virtually ever aspect of a
meal from scratch EVERY TIME.
In 2009 she received formal culinary training from L'Academie de Cuisine and
became a certified Personal Chef through the American Personal & Private Chef
Currently, Chef Teo is a Freelance Chef, part-time caterer partnering with several
Corporate Caterers, a culinary instructor and she actively provides food services
for the homeless and disadvantaged communities.


As a chef, there’s no better way to bring people together than through food.
