Rachel Farnsworth | Creative Director & Owner
Hello, I’m Rachel and I really love food! I started cooking at age 11 when I put a half cup of baking soda into a batch of cookies instead of a half teaspoon. Because…what’s the worst that could happen, right? The cookies were a spectacular fail and it got me interested in cooking. I’ve amassed several years of both formal and informal culinary training over the years. Thanks to the wonderful world of the internet I’ve been able to pursue my dream of cooking professionally, all while cooking barefoot from the comfort of my own home kitchen. My recipes are used in restaurants and bakeries around the world, I’m a published cookbook author, and I’m able to work with some of the largest food and kitchenware brands in the world. Here on The Stay At Home Chef is where I share my recipes and recipe video tutorials with a worldwide audience–all for free! You can learn more about me and my journey here.
Stephen Farnsworth | COO & Owner
Hi! I’m Steve. Or Stephen. I am the Chief Steve at The Stay At Home Chef. What does that mean? I do all the Steve work which includes whatever you’d expect a business needs to run that isn’t listed elsewhere. Every business needs a Stephen, and I, Steve, am that Stephen. My theme song is “I am Steve” by Hey Steve. When I’m not turning the crank to keep The Stay At Home Chef running, you’d probably find me out turning the cranks on a bike. You’d probably never guess that based on my bio photo.
