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.
