Eating Well with Chef Cordell’s mission is to educate and raise awareness of healthy eating, and its benefits, to the public at large. It’s executed via cooking classes, public speaking, food writing, Personal Chef Service, catering, and workshops/seminars. EWCC long term goals include establishing urban gardens in major metropolitan cities, specifically in “food desert” areas, whereas residents of these communities will be able to learn how to farm, maintain, and produce fresh produce for sale to fellow residents.

Chef Cordell says that he is love, action, progress, and upward movement in motion. Originally from the south side of Chicago and born to a middle-class family, he has only one sister. He was very fortunate to attend some of Illinois’ top elementary and high schools, those being Ted Lenart Gifted Center and Whitney M. Young Magnet High School. Cordell also attended college before enlisting in United States Air Force. He has worked in various fields, including sales, plumbing, and others, but finally settled on his heart’s true desire, cooking.

“I’ve been cooking for about 20 years. My parents taught my sister and I the basics, and I just followed it from there,” Cordell says. “I focus on accentuating healthy foods and eating via cooking classes, public speaking, and personal/private chef services.” His style is a blend of Mediterranean, French and Asian cuisines.

Eating Well with Chef Cordell provides a few services, including cooking classes (public, private, and online), public speaking (cooking demonstrations, motivational speaking, etc.), Personal/Private chef services (daily meal preparation, private dinners and parties, etc.), and grocery store tours (educating on how to properly shop at the market to start and maintain a healthy diet). There are also plans for a cook book in the near future.
