Meet The Chef

Julie Anne Rhodes is a mother, former model, actress, and founding member of Parents for Safe Foods. In 2002 she opened The Roving Stove Personal Chef Service in Los Angeles. She won the Golden Whisk Award for “Best Newbie Personal Chef” in 2003, the Personal Chefs Network Pacesetter Award in May 2005, “Best Poultry Burger in America” on the Food Network’s Ultimate Recipe Showdown in February 2008, and Personal Chefs Cooperative’s Featured Entrepreneur in January 2010. More recently she has appeared on several Community Cooking in Torrance programs, The Cooking Channel’s Food(ography), The Lost Chronicles of Food, and as a guest judge on the semifinals of MasterChef Season 5.


On Food Network’s web site Julie Anne’s recipe has garnered more 5 star reviews than any other recipe from the Ultimate Recipe Showdown. The esteemed judges included Food Network’s test kitchen director Katherine Alford, LA Times food writer Russ Parsons, and celebrity Chef Kerry Simon – their critique of her burger was ecstatic, and so were the viewers.


Julie Anne’s unusual past and international lifestyle is represented in her blog, “Jewels” from The Roving Stove, where she takes the reader from “VIP entrances in Versace to service entrances in my apron.” Her pearls of wisdom about a life filled with laughter and glamorous memories, with a few scrumptious recipes thrown in for good measure. “Jewels” from The Roving Stove was just voted one of the top 10 Food Blogs and Entertainment Blogs of 2010 and 2011 in the Bloggers Choice Awards.
