What’s up foodies? My name is Justice Stewart and I am a chef in NYC. I spent many years in the construction industry before deciding to change careers and enter the culinary world. I began my journey as a self-taught cook, and I have embraced learning the craft over the years of experimenting at home with recipes during my free time. **Update at bottom of the page
It always helped that I had tons of support from friends and family that I’ve prepared many meals for. In fact after tons of encouragement by everyone, I decided start to this blog in 2011 to share my passion with the world. I was born and raised in Queens NY which is a neighborhood that is very diverse when it comes to all things culinary. It was here I gained my passion for different types of cuisine.
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? Do you view dishes such as butter poached lobster or cognac shrimp as entrees only a pro chef can prepare? I will simplify some of these recipes and help the average home cook prepare gourmet meals for friends and family. If I can do it, you can do it!
Not only am I obsessed with cooking, I am an avid fisherman and you will find many dishes that are ocean to plate in this blog. I love to travel the country and experience new things that are trending on the culinary scene from fine dining to street food. I’m also a person that enjoys meeting new people who share the same interest of food like I do. I often collaborate with other cooks/chefs to do pop up dinners and tastings here in New York. Giving back to the community is essential to me and I do this by cooking or speaking at schools and various children charities. I also had the opportunity to help produce a popular online cooking show called “Neighborhood Chefs” in 2012 with some amazing folks. I’m not sure how often I’ll post, but please check back to see what I’ve been cooking up.

**Update: In 2012, I left the construction industry and entered the culinary world on a full time basis. I began working as a sous chef for a catering company serving the offices of a major social media company based in NYC. I also spent time working as a sous chef at Madison Square Garden for the VIP clientele during professional sporting events and concerts. I am now a private chef and caterer working out of Brooklyn, NY.
My cookbook, Mastering the Art of Sous Vide Cooking was released in December 2018 (Page Street Publishing). I am currently the Executive Chef of the International Sous Vide Association. The International Sous Vide Association (ISVA) provides education, networking opportunities, and experiential events for enthusiasts (both professional and amateur) of the sous vide cooking method.
