Chef RJ's passion for cooking began in his childhood St. Louis home while helping his mom with breakfast and his grandmother shuck peas. At a young age, he realized that there was something special about cooking. He stuck with his passion. He developed a love for not only cooking but entertaining by throwing parties for friends and family in college. After culinary school in New York city, Chef RJ dived head first into the catering world and has wowed his clients and their guests nationwide since founding Catering By RJ in 2009.
