Jacqueline Church is a private cooking instructor, speaker, consultant/trainer and independent writer whose career path includes the practice of law, management consulting and high tech business development. Today she helps readers analyze the issues in the headlines; and she guides clients through innovation, consulting and training on issues like social media and marketing communications strategy, as well as sustainability issues.
Her training clients have included Fortune 500 clients to noted restaurants like Myers+Chang. Chef and restaurant staff trainings include issues of safely serving food allergic customers and how to operationalize the goal of serving sustainable seafood.
In 2012 she combined her training and culinary skills to launch Kitchen Confidence private cooking instruction taking clients from “that looks good” to “I made that!”
Her written work often focuses on the intersection of gourmet food and sustainability issues, but she has written on topics from sports, to travel, to women executives, and film critique.
Her writing has been recognized by editors like Tanya Steel of Epicurious.com, her conservation advocacy by the Seafood Watch program at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Her favorite kudos come from people like the fisherman who wrote to tell her he reads her work for entertainment but always knows he’s learning something and the mother who wrote to thank her for writing about the perils of dining out with a food allergic child.
Writing appears in print and online in publications like The Washington Post, Edible Santa Barbara, Whole Foods Market Magazine, Culture: the Word on Cheese, Everett Potter’s Travel Report, Reuters, Chicago Sun Times News Group, GoNomad.com and more.
