Hi! I'm Chef Aimee Fuenfhausen
Born in New Orleans and raised in Texas, I have always been passionate about great food. My previous career of nearly twenty years as a registered nurse also made me passionate about taking care of people.
As a classically-trained, professional chef and registered nurse, I have been blessed with the tremendous gift of being able to combine my two life-long passions to do something I love: take care of people with great food.
My approach to food is bold and adventurous. I combine great ingredients and great cuisines from around the world with a punch of bold Texas flavor. The result is healthful, gourmet cuisine with a bit of a kick.
With my medical background and experience, I can also offer my clients help in creating healthy diets that not only work well for them, but taste fantastic as well.
Contact me and let's talk about your needs.

I was on WFAA's Good Morning Texas with host Paige McCoy Smith on January 10, 2013 talking about easy ways to prepare a week's worth of great family meals in just one day. This is what I do every day for multiple clients, so it was all in a day's work. If you caught the show and are interested in the recipes and meals I cooked, check my Recipes page.
My assistant, Anna Moon, and I competed in the American Culinary Federation's Smashin' Chili Chowdown on October 17, 2010. Against 18 teams of chefs from the likes of The French Room, Dallas-area country clubs, and culinary schools, we took Second Place. Not too bad for two chicks from Flower Mound. D Magazine's Sidedish blog has the details.
In early 2009, I appeared in an episode of "What's Brewing?", a show on the Veria Health and Wellness Network (Verizon FiOS Channel 162), with host Jody Rudman, owner of the Dallas-based Tempest Tea. In the episode, "Broth", I helped Jody make fish stock then use it in a delicious red snapper dish. TV listings for "What's Brewing" are available on LocateTV.
I appeared in a November 3, 2008 CBS 11 News segment on shopping for healthy foods with reporter Nerissa Knight. Nerissa invited me to her home to cook a delicious meal with ingredients selected from Women's Health Magazine's List of Best Supermarket Foods. The recipes I prepared are available on my Recipes page.
I was listed in the 2007 Catering Guide issue of Fort Worth, Texas Magazine.
