Mrs. Robinson Cooks!
Nancy Robinson is a former Industrial Psychologist who worked in government and industry for 10 years. In 1997 she left the workforce to stay home full-time to raise her two sons. During this time, she discovered a love—and talent—for cooking.
In 2003, she started her business, Mrs. Robinson Cooks! LLC, a full-service business specializing in personal chef and catering services.
In addition to cooking for clients, Chef Nancy appears regularly on WUSA 9, the local CBS TV station in Washington DC, with her own cooking segment during the news program.
She writes a food column for the examiner.com as the “DC Fresh Foods Examiner", EzineArticles.com, and her own monthly newsletter. She also conducts cooking classes and demonstrations as well as healthy eating seminars.
Chef Nancy is passionate about easy, healthy, and delicious food. "Good food does not need to be time consuming or expensive to make," she says. "Once you know the basics of nutrition and a few tricks in the kitchen, you can prepare wonderful meals for yourself and your family."
She is a member of the national business organizations: Women Chefs and Restaurateurs, National Association of Women Business Owners, and American Personal and Private Chef Association, and a Board Member of the local business group, Success in the City.
