CateredByCoffey Commercial Kitchen

If I can be transparent ... I'm drowning . Though extremely determined to stay afloat . This is the last place I expected to be but I’m grateful for the platform . I came to NYC in 2011 on a hope and prayer . With virtually nothing to my name . I worked really hard transitioning from Garde Manger to Jr Sous all the way up to HEAD PASTRY CHEF . I officially became incorporated in 2014 . Things pretty much stayed on the up&up, until contract negotiations between my former client and I went south at the end of 2016 . I left a lucrative and comfortable position in pursuit of making the fantasy of  paving my own culinary lane, a reality . Since then I've been scraping by . Feeling humbled and blessed to still have a roof over my head and a position in the field I love but now ... enough is enough ! My dream is bigger than this and I can't keep letting the obstacles in my path (however constant) overwhelm me . Luckily ... with your willingness to help not to mention your generosity ... I can soar !

I've been in food education for the past two years and thankfully skilled enough to flourish in this aspect of my craft . Building up a modest and extremely supportive clientele . Yet after costly kitchen rentals and gentrified landlords ... it's high time I have my own space . So here I am !! As they say ... closed mouths do not get fed & we all know I love to eat . With that said, if you’ve found it in your heart to pay it forward ... please donate any amount you can !!! Help this Black Girl Chef ... hailing all the way from the south side of Chicago ... Get Out .

Thank you in advance for your time and consideration .
