PHOENIX (Jaime's Local Love) -- A personal chef to celebrities, Nik Fields is as chic as they come, and she wants to help make you a "Chic Chef," too. Located on Central Avenue between Thomas and McDowell roads in Phoenix, Chic Chef Marketplace is your one-stop shop for spice blends, extra virgin olive oils, vinegars, organic hot sauces, mustards, ketchups, and tea blends, as well as restaurant-quality cooking utensils.
Dozens watched as Chef Nik Fields cut the ribbon to her new Chic Chef Marketplace on Central Avenue, just south of Thomas Road at 6 p.m.
Chef Nik is from New York but followed her sister to Arizona to attend Arizona State University. She moved around a bit between California and New York -- catering gatherings for some big-name celebrities. All the while, she was keeping up her job in finance to fund her dream -- Chic Chef Marketplace and -- coming soon -- Chic Chef Cafe. She even owns an olive orchard in Italy and makes her olive oil from her orchard. Chef Nik loves being in Arizona and sharing her love of cooking with her customers.
