Greetings! Welcome to Little Lemon! Little Lemon is the brainchild of me, Renee Barone. Who am I? Well. I’m just a gal who loves good food and to cook for any and everyone that will let me.
I started my first blog, The Frugal Foodies, in 2008 while living in New York. The blog focused on being poor and spending all my money on food (in 2013, not much has changed ;)). The blog was great at bringing my attention to a true passion in my life: food. In 2009, I moved to Chicago and have been in love with this city ever since.
In 2011, I started culinary night school at Kendall College for my Certificate in Personal Chef and Catering. Balancing five hour classes plus a daytime job (which I still love!) was the opposite of easy, but it really illuminated the tried and true proverb: you can do anything if you set your mind to it. In December of 2012, I completed my last course (wahoo!) and now here I am, starting my own company.
There are a ton of Personal Chefs in Chicago, but I can promise you that no one cares more about creating a healthy, and tailored, menu for you. I am obsessed with honing the natural flavors of food and bringing their best attributes to the forefront.
