FAQ for Chef Aubrey Jenkins
Are you vegan?
I don't label myself as vegan or follow any particular diet - I just believe that helping my clients and blog readers learn to love plant-based cuisine will improve both personal and environmental health! As a chef, my recipes focus on whole foods, seasonal ingredients and healthful alternatives.
Did you go to culinary school?
When did you become a private chef?
Why is this blog called "Drum Beets"?
I started playing African hand drums when I was 5, got my first drum set in elementary school, toured Europe with my high school jazz band, slayed several state-wide solo competitions, but took a break from music during college. I picked up my sticks again after college, playing tons of local venues with a band called the Day Laborers and Petty Intellectuals. While I am no longer performing, I still hold tight to the identity of "drummer." Beets on the other hand were one of my first vegetable obsessions and are included in my sleeve of botanical vegetable tattoos!
