JJ Gonson


My name is JJ.· I am a personal chef, a mom of two, a little bit rock and roll, and a food activist.

Personally, I feel strongly that there are deep problems in the way that we eat today. I am concerned about what my children eat, and so I pay a lot of attention to what is happening in our food systems, far away and locally. I boldly call myself a locavore, which means I consider eating food grown nearby to be important, and I do my level best to earn that privilege.

Professionally, alongside a very wonderful team of cooks, I provide personal cooking services in the Cambridge/Boston area. We do a weekly program, called·ONCE a Week, for some folks, and·parties for others. I endeavor to work with my clients to understand what they need to make them happy in their eating lives, and then I help to set up a system to make it happen.

Cuisine en Locale is the name of our group of gypsy cooks.· We love what we do, and we are grateful for that.· Please contact us at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or 617-285-0167



"When my wife went back to work three months after having our first child, we found ourselves eating takeout for weekday dinners four or even five times a week. It took a toll on our finances and our mental and physical health. Then we discovered ONCE a Week. Now we eat easy, delicious, interesting, and locally sourced dinners -- and for far less than we were spending on all that takeout. Every Tuesday is like Christmas when we eagerly look to see what we'll be eating that week. Thanks, JJ & Co., for solving weekday dinners for us."
