Jennifer Carroll



Philadelphia, PA

Chef Jennifer Carroll’s passion and purpose is making memorable culinary moments both on and off the screen. The Philadelphia-native combines her expertise in French technique from nine years at 3 Michelin starred, Le Bernardin and 10 Arts Bistro under Chef Eric Ripert with the skills learned working alongside Chef Marcus Samuelsson at Red Rooster, where she honed in on elevated comfort food coupled with down-to-earth hospitality.  These cumulative experiences tied to her passion for spices and clean eating helped shape the menu for her Philadelphia restaurant, Spice Finch, where she displays her knowledge and appreciation of Mediterranean-inspired dishes. Driven by the spirit of merit and competition she’s embraced on multiple All Star seasons of Bravo’s Top Chef. Carroll channels those standards into creating cool culinary experiences for Carroll Couture Cuisine. With mastery of a diverse range of styles—from light, fresh Mediterranean to classic, luxe European—Carroll personalizes fun, experience-focused meals, classes & demos for both virtual and in-person events.
