Chef Gizzy is a passionate chef that is native to Atlanta, Georgia. She has been cooking in professional, fine dining kitchens for the past 10 years after graduating from Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts. While developing her craft she formed valuable relationships with many chefs in Atlanta. She worked for Kevin Rathbun, Linton Hopkins, and under the various talented chefs at Fifth Group Restaurants. She was on Gordon Ramsay’s Hell’s Kitchen Season 18. While Ramsay’s name carries a lot of clout, she is most inspired by Chef Mossimo Bottura’s take on classic Italian cuisine.
Chef Gizzy joined the team mid-pandemic and immediately stepped in to organize their budding delivery service. Her leadership and kitchen operation experience quickly earned the trust of the chef team and she worked to keep client’s needs met as they pivoted operations in a major way. As in-home and events picked back up in 2021, and with a deeper understanding of the mission and purpose of APCS, Gizzy continued to evolve all three lines of business and pour into the chef team. “If you’ve ever met or worked with Chef Gizzy, you know she is an extremely talented chef—delightful to work with and passionate about what she does. I invited her to join me as an owner in the business to support long term growth and future success for Atlanta Personal Chef Service,” Amy Patricio shares.
In her free time, you can find Gizzy tending her garden. While not a natural green thumb, she is getting better each season with the help of her father. She grows a variety of different herbs and vegetables such as; heirloom tomatoes, zephyr squash, and bell peppers. Gizzy is a fun-loving and versatile chef who loves spreading joy through her food.
