Our Story


Welcome to Overland Chef, where the thrill of adventure meets the wide world of culinary exploration.  I'm Chef Jesse Houston, the gastronomic geek behind the flavors and thrills of Overland Chef. Fasten your seatbelts and unbuckle your taste buds because we're about to embark on a journey where the roads are bumpy, and the flavors are anything but bland.

My passion for cooking has always been the driving force in my life. As a seasoned chef who has always pushed the boundaries of creative cooking, marrying my passion and my profession was a natural evolution, resulting in Overland Chef. Imagine the joy of navigating challenging trails and then indulging in a gourmet feast under the stars—an experience that even Mother Nature would high-five us for.

With a culinary journey that spans kitchens and dining rooms around the world, from Michelin-starred restaurants to intimate local eateries, I've honed my skills to craft an off-road dining experience like no other. Overland Chef is not just a catering service; it's a gastronomic expedition designed to elevate your off-road escapades into unforgettable culinary adventures.

Our personal chef service brings a touch of luxury to your excursions. From the moment you hit the trail to the final bite of a decadent dessert, our team is dedicated to ensuring every moment is a celebration of flavors and exploration. Picture a secluded campsite, a crackling fire, and the aroma of roast spinning over a fire—welcome to the Overland Chef experience.

But our journey doesn't end there. At Overland Chef, we understand the importance of quality ingredients and reliable gear for every off-road enthusiast. That's why Overland Chef extends beyond the trails with our online store, offering a curated selection of chef-reviewed products and goods. From rugged cookware and razor sharp knives to gourmet ingredients and spices, we've got everything you need to turn your off-road adventure into a culinary masterpiece.

As the founder, my mission is to prove that the road less traveled is not only worth it; it's a heck of a lot tastier.  Overland Chef isn’t just a company—it's a community of like-minded individuals who crave the excitement of the unknown and the satisfaction of a well-prepared meal.

So, join me on this culinary expedition, where the open road is your canvas, and the flavors are your palette. Let's make every off-road journey a celebration of taste, adventure, and camaraderie.

To new horizons and delicious discoveries,
