Our Story

"We've combined our love of food and our love of family to start our business"

Chef Jen started her career working with Alice Waters, renowned chef and proprietor of Chez Panisse. It was there that she became passionate about creating food that incorporates only the freshest, sustainable and locally sourced ingredients. However, it was her work in Ann and Gordon Getty’s kitchen as their personal chef that motivated Jen to share her recipes with the world.

Explains co-founder Serafina Palandech, “Part of Jen’s job included cooking meals for all the children attending the school in the Getty’s home. All the kids loved her cooking – especially her chicken fingers!”

This became the inspiration for Hip Chick Farms’ line of artisan, transparently sourced, chef inspired frozen chicken and poultry products that are convenient for busy families. “Our chicken products contain no artificial ingredients; it’s like I’m in your kitchen, making it for you fresh,” says Chef Jen.
