Meet Jackie

Hello and welcome to my kitchen.My name is Jackie Willis and I am the proud owner and chef of Jackie’s Kitchen. God has blessed me with the gift of cooking and I look forward to the opportunity to share this gift with you. I was born and raised in Bainbridge, GA; on the same family farm where I live today. I was taught at an early age the basics of cooking because knowing how to cook was essential to farm living. My mother and grandmother took the time to share our family recipes that where passed down for generations. After time, I realized that I truly had a passion for cooking and creating meals. I built upon traditional cooking techniques and ingredients to craft my version of gourmet and country cooking. In 2004, Jackie’s Kitchen was opened with prayerful consideration and excitement. Today, we are a licensed and certified catering establishment and have expanded to offer our clients the option of on-site catering at our wedding venue, Southern Gardens by Jackie’s Kitchen. We employ uniformed and professional staff members; including a certified wedding planner who are committed to making the details of each catering event special for our clients. Our food is prepared with the finest ingredients and we take tremendous pride in its presentation and taste. We would love to assist you with your next special event

I enjoy spending time with my wonderful and supportive family. I am married to a godly man whom I love dearly, have raised three beautiful daughters, and now I am able to spoil my six grandchildren with homemade desserts. The moments I spend with my family remind me of God’s blessings and how thankful I am for his daily provision.


Imaginative menus, delicious dishes, the finest ingredients, flawless preparation, beautiful presentation, impeccable service, reasonable prices, consistent quality and never a disappointment—these things make Jackie's Kitchen the ideal choice for memorable, confident, trouble-free entertaining for any occasion, from an intimate supper to a formal banquet. Jackie makes entertaining easy—so that we can enjoy the occasion, too.
