Hi. I'm Jenn de la Vega

I'm a private chef, caterer, food stylist and veteran community manager based in Brooklyn, NY. I love talking about food experiences, new technology and teaching people how to cook. If you have a questions or want to work with me, please get in touch!

The term “randwiches” or random sandwiches was coined by friends at Etsy, who were some of my first clients. I don't exclusively make sandwiches, but the whimsical nature of the unexpected and educational food experience is what I'm all about.

My first cookbook Showdown: Comfort Food, Chili & BBQ is OUT NOW!

I spent 2016 scaling down all the recipes I've ever entered into competition. The Takedowns, Project Parlor BBQ Championship and even Guy's Grocery Games on Food Network are all in here. Find out how I broke my losing streak and built a winning career in food.

With Egg, I write recipes, tips and special features based on our quarterly themes and art events. If you're an illustrator or have a great story about eating food with other people, we want to hear it. Get in touch at submit@putaeggonit.com.

Put A Egg On It is an irreverent digest-sized art and literary magazine printed on green paper out of New York City. It’s about food, cooking and the communal joys of eating with friends and family.
