Welcome! My name is Laura Wharton AKA ChefChel. I am a South Jersey native who developed a love for food from watching my mom cook in the kitchen. In May 2020, I graduated from Johnson & Wales University in Providence, Rhode Island with a Bachelors in Culinary Arts and Food Service Management. Cooking has allowed me to travel internationally, learning different styles of culinary techniques, flavors and dishes from world renowned Chefs. I love to take my knowledge of food and essentially make it own.
