Eat and be Happy.  

“Food is art. your kitchen is my canvas. let’s create together. ”   Chef Jojo Merado

Chef Jojo — prepares and serves exquisite dinners to parties from two to 200 at your home, business, or private catering event. Her blend of French-Asian cuisine draws on a lifetime of skills and the knowledge that all meals, no matter how large or how small, are special events among family and friends.

“I do not specialize in a specific cuisine, I specialize in the art of cooking. I enjoy the entire process from start to finish and apply it to any cuisine I feel like cooking at the time. Being a chef comes with a responsibility that not all people respect and take as seriously as I do. My client’s health is always at the forefront of my mind. With that said, Lately creating vegan dishes from traditional recipes with proteins has been so much fun! I hate how processed the store vegan food tends to be, so if I have a chance to offer fresh delicious vegan food I take the opportunity! Sustainable eating is also a really big deal to me, at the forefront of my mind when I am creating a menu. I don’t want to be part of the problem, I want to be part of the solution.

Using Florida’s fresh ingredients is something I stand by. Everything I use, oils, vinegar, proteins, freshly caught fish, is Florida local.

You can taste the difference when food has been just picked. When traveling for a client, I source the farms before I go, to continue my support of the local small farms. (Please see the list of farms I currently use for your own resources!)

I enjoy cooking because it brings me peace. I cook with my heart. I enjoy being part of your memories and sharing time with your family. I look forward to cooking for you, or with you, whichever you prefer!”

-Chef Joanna Mercado
