Hello world! My name is Ashley! I am a Private Chef and a yaadie living in St. Croix (a Jamaican living in St. Croix USVI). From one beautiful island to another. I love life and food. My style of cooking is fresh from the soul, meaning always using fresh ingredients to produce my dishes and cooking with lots of love. I am also a very capable baker, who runs a part time home-based bakery business. I love the sea as it gives me a sense of calmness. My praises go to the Most High God always, as he has blessed me with my many talents.
I cook because it feels better than reading a book. I cook when I am sad, I cook when I am mad.
I cook to prove a fad and sometimes for a fine lad.
When I cook from my soul, that is when I hit my goal.
I love to be told my food is amazing as this confirms that I am not just creating.
Food brings out my creativity when I get into the nitty gritty.
Fresh ingredients are what I prefer to work with.
They bring more flavor into the dish and fulfills every foodie’s wish.
I will present to you a masterpiece on a plate; a full belly will surely be your fate.
Do not take my word for it as I tell you how great my food is, the best thing to do will be to try it and eat every bit.
I cook because I have a love affair with food and fire.
I am a Chef whose talent is up for hire. I cook because it pleases me .
I cook because it allows me to BE!
