Once Upon a Chef

Once upon a time, Jenn Segal went to culinary school and worked in fancy restaurants. One marriage and two kids later she created Once Upon a Chef, the popular cooking blog that features tested and perfected recipes with approachable ingredients and step-by-step photos.


With the authority of a professional chef and the practicality of a busy working mom, Jenn teaches readers how to improve their cooking skills one family-friendly recipe at a time. Jenn's recipes have been featured on numerous websites, magazines, and television programs, including The Oprah Magazine, Food52, The Huffington Post, WJLA's Good Morning Washington, Good Day DC, SeriousEats.com, and Parade.com. Before starting her blog, Jenn cooked at the acclaimed L'Auberge Chez Francois and was director of marketing for a prominent restaurant group, both in the Washington D.C. metro area. She now lives in Potomac, Maryland, with her husband and two children.
