Being married to a chef is hard. There, I said it. It’s really hard. . . and wonderful . . . at the same time.
My husband Tom and I have been married for 19 years. I am blessed to be able to stay home full time with our 3 girls while my husband works as a chef to provide for our family.
I started this blog to connect with other chefs’ wives and significant others who are also trying to combine restaurant and family life. Along the way, I also hope to give a glimpse of how restaurant and family life come together to those in the “outside world” (aka not in the restaurant industry.) I blog not because we have a perfect marriage or perfect children (because we don’t), but so that I can share how God has used my husband’s career as a chef to mold and shape us into the people we are today.
Thanks for sharing in this journey with me as we seek to combine two things that you normally wouldn’t put together – restaurant life and family life . I would love to hear from you and to keep you updated with the adventures of our Emulsified Family – 1 part chef/husband, 1 part wife, 3 parts children.
From one chef’s wife to another,
My name is Jennifer and I’m married to a chef. Funny, when I write it like that, it sounds like I’m in a meeting admitting something to a group of people. In a way, maybe I am. Being married to a chef is hard. There, I said it. It’s really hard. . . and wonderful . . . at the same time.
Follow along in the adventures of our Emulsified Family, where we work hard to combine 2 things that are difficult to put together – restaurant life and family life.
My husband is an amazing chef. I love to learn from him, enjoy all the food he makes, but I really dislike washing chef coats. And when I say dislike, I really mean hate. Find out how my quest on how to clean a chef coat has come to an end with one simple solution.
