Chef Jennifer Carroll
Founder/Chef – Carroll Couture Cuisine
Partner/Chef – Spice Finch
Chef Jennifer Carroll’s passion and purpose is making memorable culinary moments. The Philadelphia-native combines her expertise in French technique from nine years at Le Bernardin and 10 Arts Bistro under Chef Eric Ripert with the skills learned working alongside Chef Marcus Samuelsson at Red Rooster, where she honed in on elevated comfort food coupled with down-to-earth hospitality. These cumulative experiences tied to her passion for spices and clean eating helped shape the menu for her Philadelphia restaurant, Spice Finch, where she displays her knowledge and appreciation of Mediterranean-inspired dishes. Driven by the spirit of merit and competition she’s embraced on multiple seasons of Bravo’s Top Chef, Carroll channels that standard into creating cool culinary experiences for Carroll Couture Cuisine. With mastery of a diverse range of styles—from light, fresh West Coast to classic, luxe European—Carroll personalizes fun, experience-focused meals, classes & demos for both virtual and in-person events. Become a member of the Carroll Crew on Patreon & support her cooking in the digital world. Follow & join her in her home, studio & kitchens during CrowdCast virtual classes, one-on-one hangouts & more. Or shop to support here.
