JJ Gonson


My name is JJ. I am a personal chef, a mom of two, a little bit rock and roll, and a food activist.

Personally, I feel strongly that there are deep problems in the way that we eat today. I am concerned about what my children eat, and so I pay a lot of attention to what is happening in our food systems, far away and locally. I boldly call myself a locavore, which means I consider eating food grown nearby to be important, and I do my level best to earn that privilege.

Professionally, alongside a very wonderful team of cooks, I provide personal cooking services in the Cambridge/Boston area. We do a weekly program, called ONCE a Week, for some folks, and parties for others. I endeavor to work with my clients to understand what they need to make them happy in their eating lives, and then I help to set up a system to make it happen.

Cuisine en Locale is the name of our group of gypsy cooks. We love what we do, and we are grateful for that. Please contact us at cuisine@enlocale.com or 617-285-0167
