Lea Bowen

​I have been an avid cook and food lover for as long as I can remember.

My life has been an incredible series of events and adventures, all of which have a distinct food memory attached to them. I have traveled the world and always joke that I don't recall the paintings I saw in a museum, but I could tell you exactly what I ate in the museum café.

I hold a culinary certification from the Art Institute of Atlanta and have been cooking professionally since 2010. Additionally, I have had many wonderful opportunities to acquire hands on cooking skills while working with many talented local chefs, culinary producers, food stylists and recipe developers.

As a personal chef, my primary goal is to provide families the gift of time around the dinner table, while enjoying delicious and nutritious meals.
