JJ

Chef

Chef JJ Aguilera grew up in Los Angeles where his father was a sous chef in a classic French restaurant. Naturally, Aguilera’s father inspired him to being cooking. He then started an apprenticeship and began creating fusion inspired dishes. Before Chef Aguilera joined Catering and Events by Suzette, he spent the last decade in Nashville cooking in several local hotspots including the Hutton Hotel. Aguilera prefers local food, straight from local vendors and farms. His dishes and menus are often dictated by the season to insure that we are serving the freshest ingredients. “My favorite part about being a chef, is seeing the happy look on a client’s face when you know you exceeded their expectations,” said Aguilera.

I am so excited for you! As a former caterer I know it is so much easier when all decisions rest solely on you. I dont know if you remember me, but you catered my daughters wedding at Fontenel about 7 years ago. It was lovely and delicious!
