Meet Alyssa

I have always LOVED food, so when I realized I could hone and share that passion as a career, I enrolled in The Culinary Institute of America. After earning my degree, I began establishing myself at several iconic restaurants in New York City, including one of my favorites, An American Place, owned by Chef Larry Forgione. After working behind the line there, I switched to catering and worked with Gracious Thyme Catering Company, serving top Fortune 500 Companies. This lead me to the test kitchens at Unilever where I developed recipes and learned the art of food styling for photography and video shoots before ultimately founding Jenkins Culinary Resources in 2010.

While my titles have changed over the years, the word "food" has always been a part

of my identity. I am hands on, and oversee JCR's recipe development, photography and videography.  I have brought together an amazing team of highly skilled creative professionals. JCR is established as a Woman-Owned Business and is certified with the WBENC. We work side-by-side with our clients to implement their brand marketing strategies and drive their business goals.
