Chef Lynn Ware is a seasoned culinary professional with a wide variety of culinary training and experiences. A native of New Orleans, Chef Lynn, a true cajun/creole chef, spent her youth cooking delicious cajun/creole entrees. Her early culinary experiences, shaped by her grandmother and aunt, introduced her to many secrets of fine cajun/creole cooking from boiling crawfish and blue crabs to the mastery of cajun/creole spices and sauces. It was during that time that her culinary interest began to blossom and she began to appreciate the rich Louisiana Cajun and Creole culinary traditions.
While working as a financial analyst for over 20 years in the Government and Corporate sectors, Chef Lynn continued to be drawn to her passion for food and the culinary arts. She eventually made the decision to begin her professional culinary journey by launching Custom Gourmet Solutions, LLC, a personal chef service, in 2005. Using her extensive background in Finance and Business Management, coupled with her gourmet cooking skills, she has grown the business to what it has become today…..A leading personal chef service offering fresh, nutritious, delicious meals customized to your tastes and dietary needs.
