Preparing Seasonal, Unique Dining Experiences

& Nourishing Personal Chef Services

"Food and cuisine are a culmination of human and ecological harmony, evolutionary abundance, culture, innovation and creativity, which I am excited to participate in as a chef and community member."

"Chef Gabby Aron is a first generation Sicilian-Jewish American, born in Bensonhurst Brooklyn of a food loving family and community. Her love of cooking began at home, and in the diners and pizzerias in her local neighborhoods. Food was the greatest reward and comfort, as a child of hard working parents and relatives, food and music was always the center of celebration and togetherness. Her relatives grew vegetables in their urban backyards, which gave her a taste for unique, quality ingredients. Chef Gabby began her food career as a farmer in 2010 after learning about the impacts of industrial farming. Since then she has worked in every aspect of the food industry, as a farmer, cook, and teacher,  until founding her business Autumn Olive Food Works in 2016. Chef Gabby lives in Jersey City with her chiweenie named zucchini, where you can find her at the community garden, and at the local farmers market every week. 












"Through food, we have the ability to interact and affect our local ecologies, communities, and economies, as well as deeply nourish ourselves. This is sustainability and intergenerational responsibility.

My goal as a chef, grower, and educator is to honor traditional food ways, ecology, artistry, and wellness, as well as healing through food.  I specialize in using locally grown and unique ingredients, I have cultivated meaningful relationships with my local farm community over the past 12 years, and come from a diverse cultural background, which inform my menus and services. With over a decade of industry experience in agriculture, culinary arts, education, and event production, I love to embark on new challenges, and work on the ground with my community. Food is my way of making the world a better place and striving for well being "
