Our Story

Welcome To The Gurley Chef

The Gurley Chef (TGC) is of course a play on my name, Iman Gurley. I graduated from the Art Institute of Atlanta in 2004 and began my career as a personal chef for philanthropists and celebrities throughout the greater Atlanta area. My experience also includes serving as the Culinary Expert for Williams Sonoma where I taught cooking classes, developed recipes and curated everything needed to enhance a foodie’s repertoire across the southeast region of the U.S.

They’re perfect for those who don’t want to think about what’s for dinner, are short on time and want to eat something healthier than what’s available on UberEats, DoorDash or GrubHub.
