Chef Ameerah Watson, also known as the Creole Peach Chef, is the founder of Intimate Chef of Atlanta (ICA). With more than 10 years of successful professional experience in various aspects of the culinary industry, she is quickly growing in popularity.
As a graduate of Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts, she has worked for multiple fine dining establishments like the JW Marriott of Buckhead and the Ritz Carlton, as well as appearing on the multiple nationally televised Food Network shows. Chef Ameerah has also been the featured guest chef to many local events and expos such as the East Metro Farmers Market at Stone Crest Mall, Atlanta Food & Farm, LLC and the Atlanta Chef Expo.
The Creole Peach specializes in healthy cooking. Paired with her Occupational Food Science degree, she completed her Naturopathic Medicine certification in 2008 through the Phoenix Rising Institute to support her focus on the true nature of food and what it can do for the human body. These two backgrounds, along with her southern roots, have resulted in Chef Ameerah being well versed in meeting every dietary need with bold flavor and colors.
Her services span a healthy approach to foods from diets of raw vegan cuisine to a body building protein rich regiment, and everything in between. ICA partners with many organizations who focuses on ‘farm to table’ education, bridging farming and REAL food together through easy preparation classes for the community.
Chef Ameerah was born in New Orleans where she received the foundation of her flavoring style. Later in life her mother, who was raised vegetarian, moved the family to Atlanta where Ameerah was primarily raised but still spent her summers in New Orleans. Each of these two southern cities are well known for their unique styles of cooking and flavors. Growing up in and cooking with a fusion of these cultures and a focus on healthy foods is how Chef Ameerah came to be the Creole Peach Chef!
Her business, ICA, got it’s name from the personal touch that Chef gives to all dishes, with special care to entice the senses with smells, color, presentation, texture and tasted; and with special consideration of the relationship between healthy food and the human body. ICA is committed to inspiring health, leading the charge of a healthy food revolution in the community utilizing non-GMO and locally grown seasonal produce as available.
