Chef James Sparks
About Chef Sparks
Chef Sparks has worked at DFW Lakes Hilton Conference Center, Marriot Hotels and Sodexo Corporate Food Division as well as many of DFW’s high profile culinary events. In 2001 James was recruited by Gils Elegant Catering.
He has worked as General Manager and Executive Chef on many prestigious events such as Dallas Cattle Baron’s Ball, five consecutive Frontiers of Flight Gala’s and 3 Consecutive Kenneth Copeland Ministry Conferences as well as 1000’s of weddings, corporate fund raisers and social events over the past 15 years.
I was raised in and around NYC in a home where food was very important. My mom’s position with a Fortune 500 company took her all over the world.
I recall listening to her fascinated as she returned from an exhausting trip. These stories of all the hard work and dedication involved in the Hospitality industry are where I got my inspiration.
When working with this excellent team at Gil’s, all our planning and hard work is rewarded when we hear glowing reviews from our clients. I am passionate about putting together the best team available, and then leading them so they may all succeed.
“I just wanted to give you a huge heartfelt thank you for the truly amazing job that Gil’s did at our wedding. The food was unbelievable. I have had more people than I can count, come up to me and rave about how wonderful the food was! I even had people call me days after just to make sure they told me how much they liked it! I really just can’t thank you enough for helping make our wedding so truly perfect!”
