Meet the Chef


Hi, I am Chef Tirzah Love, and for the past eight years I have been a Private Chef and Caterer. After working in the corporate insurance industry, I started my own catering company and later became a Private Chef for select players of the Sacramento Kings.

 

I am really passionate about healthy, organic and GMO free cuisine, and I use this in my approach to cooking and teaching. One of the highlights of my career was when I was featured on Beat Bobby Flay, and also named one of Essence Magazines “7 Dope Chefs You Should Know.”

I am so excited to introduce you to SoulBox, and I can’t wait to cook with you in your home!

The Chef Tirzah Experience

Previously, I hosted A Beat at the Table – a sultry, communal, and soulful pop-up event in Oakland featuring a five plate meal, coursed out slowly and presented beautifully. It was a complete sensory experience and included a DJ Rikkie Tee curated soundtrack with each dish and beautiful artwork presented by local artisans to enhance the ambiance.

Tuesdays with Tirzah (TWT), is another event I created as a simple call to action on Facebook. I invited anyone who felt lonely, depressed, or just wanted to connect with others in the community to come to my house on Tuesday evenings for dinner.  The turnout was amazing! Complete strangers, old friends, and family members would come to my home for a beautiful meal and intimate conversation every week.

 

While both events were quite successful, they were both pre-pandemic, and thus, I had to find a way to pivot my business during the pandemic since so much has changed. I started with weekly virtual cooking classes on Tuesdays in the spirit of TWT, and soon after partnered with a talent management and events company to host corporate cooking classes with meal kits. My participants loved the fun, new, and convenient classes and meal kits, and I found this venture quite lucrative!

Now, I am excited to bring this same in-person experience straight to your home.
