CHEF/HOSTESS JENNIFER ‘JEN’ ANNE AEMILIA ICEBERG
Jen grew up in her grandparents’ farmhouse with her brother and four cousins in New Rochelle, NY, a small waterfront community located on the WNW coast of Long Island Sound. Sharing and caring are instinctive in an extended family. This Kincaid-esque setting was naturally blessed with the freshest seafood and seasonal produce. Jen lives by the yogi adage: “Be good, do good, be kind, be compassionate.” This is in part why Jen receives such glowing testimonials. But it’s even more for her amazing cuisine.
Jen’s childhood was idyllic. She recalls, “At home my grandmother taught me to cook and garden at an early age, pursuits I still love to this day. Fruits, vegetables, herbs and plants are my passion, especially growing them. At school, I volunteered to help other kids a lot; team manager, field day coordinator and subject tutor. I found greater pleasure serving quietly than being in the spotlight, but I did win a trophy in a national billiards competition and a youth modeling competition.”
In addition to being kind-hearted and a natural beauty, Jen also achieved a Bachelor of Science in Hospitality Management, majoring in Culinary Arts and Restaurant Management. Education and talent was rewarded with cooking/management positions at several posh hotels. She specializes in vegan/GF/paleo/raw food and her most popular recipes include zucchini pasta with avocado alfredo sauce, conch fritters and burgers, red snapper, Mahi fish stew, gluten free protein pancakes, and “bullet coffee”. She is also a meditation, mantra, pranayama, dance/fitness, yoga and yoga therapy instructor with two 200-hr RYT certifications, and she is certified in adult and infant CPR.
Jen’s motto:” Life, love, laugh and be happy! Enjoy each moment just as it comes.” Which, she admits, is not a hard thing to do aboard Rubicon in the Exumas, Bahamas.
Jennifer alternates as Chef / Mate between Freebird and Rubicon, so occasionally a Freelance Chef/Mate will be hired.
