Who are we?

barb-in-chef-coatMy name is Barbara Shafer and I am the Chef and Owner of A Chef of Your Own LLC. 

Food has always been my passion and I have been involved with it for the last 35 years in some shape or form.  After graduating Penn State with a degree in Nutrition, I realized that my options were either working in a hospital or doing research.  Neither one of those appealed to me so I went on to culinary school and graduated from The Walnut Hill School in Philadelphia, Pa. Through the years, I have worked for independent restaurateurs, large corporations, a private children’s school, a sorority at Colorado State University, private assisted living for the elderly and owned my own catering company.

Today, A Chef of Your Own continues to expand.  Stephanie Javernick, Alicia Bagherian and Cathy Dorman are key to A Chef of Your Own in the kitchen and in weekly menu development.  We pride ourselves in offering fresh, seasonal entrees and sides prepared in a variety of International flavor profiles.  It’s our passion & mission to serve you with integrity & be a part of your dining experience.
