About the Chef
Chef Joanne Sheeron grew up in NYC and attended the Fashion Institute of Technology where she graduated with a degree in apparel design. She worked as a clothing designer on 7th Avenue for a number of years, but eventually a love of the restaurant scene and fine dining got the best of her. The beautiful presentations, vivid colors, flavors and aromas in all the great eateries NYC has to offer appealed to both the designer and the foodie at the same time.
She attended the New York Restaurant School , where she trained to become a chef. Upon graduating first in her class, she was hired at Restaurant Jean Georges at the Trump International Hotel. This four star experience shaped her style and taught her the skills and disciplines she carries with her today as a private chef in homes.
Subsequently, Ms Sheeron went to work at the new Asia De Cuba, Parkview at the Boathouse, Alison's on Dominick and the Russian Tea Room as a Sous Chef.
After that, she became the Executive Chef at Maré Seafood Restaurant in Chelsea, and brought the modest little neighborhood restaurant into the spotlight with simple, stylish presentations and a clean yet sophisticated palate.
After a successful run at Maré she left the restaurant business and went out on her own.
