Welcome to Slice of Jess, thank you for stopping by! I’m Jessica Bentley, but feel free to call me Jess. (I only get Jessica when we’re new acquaintances or I’m in trouble… 😉 ). I’m a self-taught chef who’s cooking & eating her way through the Queen City of Charlotte, N.C. I’m a food and drink journalist, and you can find me most weekdays at Foodesign Associates working with their marketing and photography departments.
Here you’ll find all of my passions wrapped up in one place: FOOD + DRINK + PHOTOGRAPHY + TRAVEL + DINING. I moved to Charlotte from the San Francisco Bay Area in 2013. Since then, I have been roaming around the city exploring the booming culinary scene and discovering new ingredients for my home cooked meals. I want to welcome you to a slice of my kitchen, and I hope that my recipes inspire you to cook with local, fresh produce and eat a more colorful plate. You’ll find that my recipes are often healthy, sometimes indulgent, but always tasty!
Yes… that’s Tyler Florence behind me. Yes… I was super stoked to meet him.
Have a wonderful day! Thank you for stopping by.
