Hi, I'm Jenn de la Vega.

I'm a private chef, caterer, food stylist and 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 two employees 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. Randwiches is supported in part by Awesome Food, a chapter of the Awesome Foundation
