Navy veteran and Georgia native, Chef Jessica Lutz discovered her passion for cooking while working at seafood market in Groton, Ct., Access to amazingly fresh seafood was all it took for this budding chef to realize her calling. Newly married at the time, her husband was, and still is, her most willing and extremely satisfied taste tester. She moved to North Carolina in 2007 to be closer to her parents and start a family. While continuing her quest for high quality ingredients she discovered Savory Spice Shop in Huntersville. After being a customer and working there for years, she took the leap and began teaching their demonstrative cooking class, highlighting thier spice blends. It was through these classes that her true calling as a chef was found and Saucy Spoon Cooking was born.
