There’s a new Cook Supervisor in town! Meet Jacqueline Hill, who brings many years of experience and passion for cooking to her new role. Hill manages Lutheran Village at Miller’s Grant’s kitchen operations and ensures every meal is delicious and nutritious.
Hill has been cooking since the age of five. Her mother taught her and instilled the importance of proper serving, presentation and taste. She honed her skills through various culinary positions including restaurants, universities, hospitals and a food truck.
Born in Cleveland, OH, Hill has lived in Maryland for the past 25 years. She has four children ranging in age from 20 to 37. Her youngest son cooks at Nordstrom, and her daughter manages Hill’s catering business—Big Red’s Kitchen, LLC., which she started in 2000. Hill is affectionately called Big Red by her friends, so she decided to use it in her business name. She has since catered many events, including sorority and fraternity events and her favorite – Howard University’s Homecoming.
Hill is known as the Sauce Queen because of the delicious original sauces she loves to create. Her signature Rasta pasta, curry goat, collard greens and mac and cheese are also a hit. She most enjoys preparing Caribbean and soul food dishes, which she sells at the many festivals she attends as a vendor.
Cooking may be Hill’s passion, but she also enjoys many other activities. She loves entertaining and spending time with her family, dancing to Caribbean music and traveling to her favorite destination—Jamaica.
Although Hill has checked many boxes on her “to-do” list, there’s one thing she has yet to do – own a food truck. With all she has achieved thus far, it’s reasonable to believe we’ll see a Red Head Kitchen food truck driving in the neighborhood soon.
