Jessica Nguyen is a home cook and food creative living in Melbourne/ Naarm, whose mission is to inspire people to cook, drink and throw parties at home for themselves and for the people around them, one Instagram post at a time.
She shares easy to follow step-by-step recipes on her Instagram via ‘Stories’ which are saved down as ‘Highlights’ for people to refer back to and recreate at any time. Whilst most are food recipes, there’s also plenty of cocktail recipes and tablescapes for every theme or occasion to inspire you to take your dinner parties to a whole new level.
Whilst she has always been obsessed with food, she spent the last 10 years in the beauty industry working in various Marketing & PR roles, before fatefully being made redundant in March 2020 just as COVID-19 was announced a global pandemic. Unprecedented times became an opportunity to finally turn her food passion into a new career, essentially ‘cooking her way out of COVID’ and building it into a full-time business.
In November 2020, Jess launched her first food product, with her first batch of ‘Chilli Oil on Everything’, a chilli oil recipe that was shared back in February 2020 and one of her first recipes made by thousands last year. This cult condiment became a staple in the kitchen, and we are pleased to announce that Batch #2 of @chillioiloneverything is now ready and available to purchase on the website.
Whether you’re an aspiring cook, a terrible cook who wants to get better, looking for inspiration for your weekly meals, or someone who wants to take your dinner party to the next level, her content will have something for you!
