Meet our Founder 

Welcome to the House of Chef James Mitchell.
A couple of years ago, Chef James Mitchell and I, created our parent company House of Chef James Mitchell. inc. We set out to bring home-cooked meals back to the kitchen tables of our community & our neighborhood families.
The past couple of years have been truly magical to say the least and it has finally given me the privilege to spearhead the next big project in the Mitchell Family Clan !!
 I have always wished to open up a Cooking School like no other, where we would be able to offer a personalized, hands-on approach to the culinary arts. We are so very proud to announce that we have officially launched our new Culinary Cooking School, House of Junior Chefs. 
First, a little bit of history.......
I have always had an experimental side and wished for many years that I would have learnt how to cook as a child. When we were all younger, it usually was our parents who would do the cooking while we were told to head to the table and finish our homework. When were we suppose to learn the fundamentals of cooking. Luckily, we had a handy class in high school called Home Economics. In this Class, I was taught how to make Crisco Chocolate Chip Cookies & Pie Crust. That was about it folks! 
Fast forward to my early 20's, I am living alone for the first time and going through the IGA with about $600.00 worth of groceries, please keep in mind, I am alone. That was the amount of food my mom always bought for, mind you, I had 2 brothers and sister and my family was made up of 6 hungry Europeans. Suffice it to say, everything went bad in my fridge. This could have been all avoided if I had learnt how to shop for one person and how to make cost effective meals that would last throughout the week.
All this to say is that, I had wished that someone would have taught me how to cook a snack for myself or showed me how the grocery stores worked perhaps demonstrated how to use a stove to cook anything. 
Fast Fast Forward to my 30's, I am the co-founder of a wonderful catering company, mum of two beautiful children, married to my beset friend & now have the chance to create a space, where kids can have fun, learn and enjoy the culinary arts. Woohoo!! 
Learning to cook & feed ourselves is a fundamental skill we all need to master. At the House of Junior Chefs, we pride ourselves on our Hands-On, Unique & Supportive atmosphere that will encourage the creative development of your child. 
We look so forward to being apart of your child's tasty adventure.
See you all soon,
Happy Thoughts & Tasty Treats,
