About Me


Chef Sam Rae was born in Jamaica and moved to the Bronx, NY at the age of 10.  She moved to Winston-Salem, North Carolina at the age of 18 where she attended Winston Salem State University and received her B.S. in Biology. Samantha then moved to Charlotte, NC to pursue her Masters in Public Health. Chef Sam then moved to the DMV area for work and recently graduated in 2018 with her Doctorate in Leadership & Organizational Management.


With a grandmother who owned her own 'shop' in the rural parts of Jamaica A.K.A di country and a mother who currently owns a Jamaican restaurant in Philadelphia, cooking is in her blood. Chef Sam learned to cook from her mother and has honed in on her skills to cook comfort food that not only satisfies the taste buds but reminds you of home.  

Although she wears many hats, Chef Sam's primary mission is to appease the taste buds of her customers and accommodate each request in a timely manner.

How did Cooking With Sam Rae get started? It's actually a simple answer! One Sunday afternoon a friend asked for assistance with meal prepping. After preparing 14 meals and cooking my own Sunday dinner, I realized that I was capable of making large meals. After receiving a number of requests to try my food, I decided to offer my services.

That Sunday night, the idea for Cooking With Sam Rae was born.
