About Justice Stewart

Justice the construction worker

Hey, I’m Justice and, as you can see from this blog, I am a cook. I have never attended culinary school, nor have I taken any culinary classes. I have worked in the construction industry for the past 9 years (*Update Below). I am a self-taught Chef and learning as I go. It helps that I have a lot of support from friends and family. In fact, in  2011 after all the encouragement, I decided start to this blog. I was born and raised in Queens NY, and I have always had a love for good food. Why not eat gourmet at home?


Speaking with 4th graders at P.S. 76’s “Career Day”
Talking to kindergarten children at PS 76 about a career as a chef.

Have you ever walked in a bookstore browsed through cookbooks but decided against buying one because you had no idea what some of the ingredients were? Or view dishes such as Beef Wellington or Cognac Shrimp with Beurre Blanc Sauce as entrees only a pro chef can prepare?  I am going to demystify some of these dishes and help to teach the average home cook how to prepare gourmet meals. My motto is, “If I can do it, you can do it!” I also love giving back to the community by cooking or speaking at schools and various children charities.

I’m not sure how often I’ll post, but please check back to see what I’ve been cooking up. All of these meals are cooked and photographed by me. You will find recipes for most of the dishes inside. For more info about me you can visit www.cuisinenoirmag.com & www.wildriverreview.com and read a couple of articles about my culinary beginnings. I also have had the opportunity to executive produce a popular online cooking show called “Neighborhood Chefs”. Episodes can be viewed  @ www.ibchannel.tv .  For all other inquires Contact email :gourmetdeconstructed@yahoo.com  twitter:follow me @justicegourmet  Facebook : www.facebook.com/gourmetdeconstructed.

Welcome to my wonderful world of food!

*Update: I’ve officially left the construction industry in 2012 and entered the culinary world. I have started my company, Gourmet Deconstructed Custom Catering & Personal Chef Services. I also spent the 2014-15 season working as a Sous Chef at Madison Square Garden for the season ticket holders  and the VIP suite during NY Knicks and NY Rangers home games. I am currently filming a cooking show called “Cooking With Justice” which the trailer for it can be viewed Here>>>>>> Cooking With Justice

The journey continues….

    1. Hey thanks a bunch, I appreciate you taking the time to view my dishes. People have no idea that you can prepare TRUE restaurant quality meals at home. Also we live in a world of technology, where everyone is too lazy to cook with fresh ingredients. Anyway thanks for visiting and I will check out your blog tonight 🙂


  4. Hi Justice,
    Christmas Eve tomorrow here. We are not cooking the traditional. We never do. On Christmas Day, we will cook roast rib of beef, Yorkshire puddings, potatoes and roast winter vegetables. We will have smoked salmon and home made brown bread to start. A meringue cake with raspberries to finish. There will be no photos or posts. It is a family time. Wishing you a happy Christmas and all the best in 2011.


  5. Hello Conor, Thank you for sharing. I have friends coming over tonight which is Christmas Eve. I am roasting a rosemary and garlic leg of lamb, and I will use duck fat to roast some fingerling potatoes with thyme and asparagus almondine. You and your family have a blessed holiday season 🙂

    Hi! You had a creamy sous vide lobster pasta on your site that’s no longer available. I can’t find it anywhere!! I’ve made it twice and it’s my favorite dish. You had the recipe on your gourmet site but I don’t see it anymore. Is there any way I can get that?? ITS AMAZING!
