The Chef

Jamaican-born, New York-raised Chef, Oprah Davidson has been in love with food ever since she could remember. She decided to make a career out of cooking when she realized how much joy it brought people.  It was also an outlet for her to express her creativity.  


Oprah originally attended Johnson & Wales University to pursue a degree in Baking & Pastry Arts, which she earned.  She later continued on to earn an A.S. in Culinary Arts, as well as a B.S in Food Service Management.  It was during her time in college that Oprah first started hosting dinner parties at home to connect with classmates and members of the various clubs she joined.  Years later, looking back, she realized that those were the moments she enjoyed most as a chef; cooking for and dining with people she truly cared about.


Sundays with Oprah was created to once again establish those cherished moments.  Drawing from her experience at reputable companies, such as The Ritz-Carlton, JW Marriott, Bouchon Bakery, and Milkbar, much attention is paid to the detail and execution of her events. Her love of people, culture, and travel also plays a major role in the dishes that she prepares, offering flavors from all over the world.  In her spare time Oprah likes to garden, dance, listen to music, and learn different languages.
