Hi, I’m Jacqueline Hodges-Kent, owner of Jacque (pronounced Jackie) Rose. I’m a foodie and I love to entertain. Cooking is an art form that allows me to express my passion. Preparing meals for others makes me happy because it is how I welcome people into my home and my heart. What I love most about cooking is it allows me to comfort others. Cooking is another way that I hug, I kiss, and express my love for others. If you have questions or just want to talk, call me at 702-752-1314.
I was born in Los Angeles and reared in Pacoima, California. Pacoima is approximately twenty-five miles northeast of downtown Los Angeles. Pacoima is a small town that is commonly referred to as the Land of Dreams. My family hails from Mississippi and Louisiana. This should give you some idea of how I cook and what my food taste like.I am the second child and the oldest girl. I have 5 siblings (Printes, Floyd, Iris, Patricia, and Schelondia). I am blessed to have 3 daughters (Jamie, Wendy, and Robi), 5 grandchildren (Brittian, Nyla, CJ, Robert, and Alanha), and last but not least, I have a great grandson Kamden.
I ventured into cooking at the tender age of 7 or 8. The kitchen was the hub of our
home. I was in the kitchen with Grandma Emma whenever I was with her. She taught me things like how to boil an egg and that the kitchen is where everyone gathered to nourish their bodies, share, comfort, bond, talk loud, laugh, tell stories and sometimes tell lies. She taught me that the kitchen is where memories and traditions are made.
