She also happens to be one of the most talented and best personal chefs on the East Coast with private kitchens all over New York City and The Hamptons welcoming her with open pots and pans!

Born and raised in Barbados, Chef Renee has always had a passion for food and culture which she turned into a successful and exciting career as a personal chef for high profile and celebrity clients. Chef Renee has worked with some of New York City's most prestigious catering companies and her talent also landed her on Food Network's Chopped where she was a finalist.

1. What led you to becoming a chef?

Chef Renee Blackman: Hmmm! I really enjoy cooking for the girls. It’s makes for a great conversation for an in home date night, lol. Honestly, I have always had a passion for food and having friends and family be my guinea pigs lead me down this path. I would go home after work and watch Food Networks CHOPPED and say to myself “one day I’m going to be on this show!”

4. You were recently featured in one of Odell Beckham Jr's video series, "I Am More: OBJ," where he spoke about you being his private chef. What is the best part about having a client like Odell?

Chef Renee Blackman: The best part of having Odell as a client is the blank slate, we are getting to know each other from the beginning. He is an open canvas culinary wise, it’s great to introduce him to knew things.

Chef Renee Blackman: For my women out there, to try and to fail! Just Do! Set your intentions, be strong, remain driven!
