Hi! I'm Jamie Askin, a New York City and Maryland based Personal Chef. I trained at the Natural Gourmet Institute of Health and Culinary Arts where I learned that what we eat is vital to our health. I specialize in Anti-Inflammatory diets - including gluten free, Paleo, Keto and Whole 30 programs which have been linked to Heart Disease, Type 2 Diabetes and Cognitive Impairment Diseases such as Alzheimer's and Depression.
For years I worked on the set as Craft Service on TV commercials, TV show pilots and short films, feeding healthy and delicious food to the cast and crew to keep them in good moods! My most recent TV project was the new Project Runway on Bravo, airing Spring of 2019.
I'm a Health Coach and Life Coach and can offer you the whole package of planning a life style program and cooking for you to maximize your health and well being.
I am a Massage Therapist. I trained at The Swedish Institute of Massage Therapy to learn how our bodies work and how to improve our health through Swedish and Shiatsu massage therapy.
I'm a Jewish Interfaith Minister, ordained through One Spirit Interfaith Seminary, a two year program learning the history and practices of world religions life cycle events. To me, to love and be loved is the connecting point of all religions. While Judaism is my religion, I was drawn to this service to help others and perform the rituals that have significance and meaning in our lives.
