WHY DO WE DO WHAT WE DO? WE BELIEVE THAT FOOD is more than just consuming, it's communal. It HAS A WAY OF transcending into our lives and acting as a vehicle TO CREATE GREAT MOMENTS AND MEMORIES.
It takes a team.
Founded out of a love for wholesome food and a love for hospitality, Homespun has grown into a boutique chef and catering service. Our chefs, servers, and staff share our same values for quality and authentic community.
Working hand-in-hand with Kitchen Six, a neighborhood eatery in North Decatur allows Jason to cook for patrons as the Executive Chef and oversee Homespun operations. We are excited about this new partnership and ability to serve even more of the Atlanta area with our passion.
-Jason and Jamie Jimenez, Founders
Jason Jimenez, Chef & Co-Founder
Chef Jason Jimenez is an ATL native with over 10 years of experience in culinary skills. His career started while attending Johnson and Wales University in Charleston, SC where he worked for both the Old Village Post House and Peninsula Grill. After moving back home to Georgia, he worked at several of the acclaimed restaurants around town, including Canoe, Local Three, Muss & Turner’s.
Over the years, Jason developed a desire to bring exceptional seasonal menus to private events--whether celebrations, retreats, or company dinners. Homespun was created--out of this desire--to provide those very opportunities. With a passion for locally sourced foods and intricately crafted menus, Jason has thoroughly enjoyed giving life to the idea of an intentional communal food experience. You can find him at Kitchen Six serving as the Executive Chef.
"Ever since I have been little, I have enjoyed eating with friends and family. It is comfortable and enduring. I still remember the simple, but tasty meals my grandmother would make. Those experiences inspired me to use my talents to, in turn, bring others joy. I have found my passion for food through the people I share it with. Homespun allows myself and others to create Simple Gatherings around the table. My craft is not just a tool for my own means, but a gift I get to share.”
