Fork & Company

My name is Chera, aka Chef Chera. I was born and raised in Austin, TX and still reside here. My late husband, Gary, encouraged me to enter recipe contests because he loved my food creations. ​He always complimented that I could pantry and frig dive and make something out of nothing taste incredible.

He was my number one cheerleader and I was his follower. To this day, I carry his words of support and strive to provide

delicious meals and fun events while giving back to the community (please contact me for availability for your next charity auction).


I've appeared on the Cooking Channel and was a grilling finalist on the Kelly Rippa LIVE show. Locally, I've worked with the Hula Hut to develop gluten free recipes, have cooked at festivals, and have catered events. You'll soon find me as head chef at local pop up dinners (invitation only dinners at various locations). I've placed and won in more than 30 recipe competitions, have cooked at the Rose Bowl and at three NFL games. I take pride in creating foods to satisfy any taste bud or allergy, including paleo, vegetarian, gluten free, clean eating, etc. Just ask and I'll create it for you!


​​When I'm not in my test kitchen you can find me eating out, golfing, traveling, at a winery or in the garden!
