 Chef Queen Precious-Jewel

I’m the Owner/Founder/Executive Chef of Indulge Catering, LLC. I have a gift that I get to share as a way of bringing community back to the table. I enjoy sharing my love of truly experiencing the joy of food through your eyes, the smells, and of course, the taste.

Since 2014, I have worked hard to build a highly sought-after catering business by creating high-end healthy, flavorful dishes that astonish and delight my clients—while still supporting local vendors. I love to challenge my clients to elevate their palates and welcome them to my “table” to Indulge.

Finally after 7 years in business, and having to pivot during the COVID-19 pandemic, I launched Indulgent Essential Spices, a line of Gluten-Free, Vegan, Organic artisanal spices and sauces.
Fun Indulgent Fact: As the eldest of 6 children, I have always prepared healthy, great-tasting, food for my family. This is what started my love of cooking, combining flavors, and creating meals that pull inspiration from growing up Muslim in the Bronx, NY. Being a Chef is my blessed journey.

Chef Jacqueline “Jay”

I’m the Co-Owner/Sous Chef of Indulge Catering, LLC. I'm a "Durhamite" meaning I was born and raised in The Bull City aka Durham, NC. Around Durham, I'm known as the mayor because I'm very personable and have never met a stranger or forgotten a face.

My most important role however is the official taste tester of all INDULGENT Flavor Bombs that Chef Queen Precious-Jewel creates.
