Chef Tj was born and raised in Detroit Michigan where he began cooking at a early age in his mother’s kitchen. By his teenage years he found his true passion as a grand grill master. Later in life he moved to San Antonio. The “entrepreneur spirit” of the city grew on him and became his way of coping from a past trauma. In December 2018, Chef Tj loss his brother who was very dear to him. Creating and serving dishes for others to enjoy became a positive outlet. “Cooking From The Heart Catering” was then founded in ode to his brother who inspired the business.
Today Chef Tj can still be found in the city of San Antonio cooking it up! You’ll find a few of his signature items like his Smoked Chicken and AMAZING Baked Macaroni. He also has created a niche of Belgian Style Waffle Infused with some of your favorite childhood cereals! Delicious! Chef Tj is also apart of The Chefs CoLab which is a diverse group of TALENTED San Antonio Chefs and Bakers. In a very small amount of time, the brother has been making moves...but the best is yet to come!
