Jennifer Aniston's friends rave about the food made by her chefs, Jill and Jewels Elmore (standing).
And the praise flows both ways. "It's wonderful to cook for them," says Jewels. "The are so open to fresh,
beautiful food, and the care you take preparing it."
Toasting the Chefs
Jen's friends call the chefs to the table. Kristin Hahn, Jen's partner in Echo Films, raises her glass to Jewels and Jill. "I want to thank you two," she says, "for infusing your warmth into this food. It doesn't just taste good; it tastes of love."
We Are Family
"Jewels [left] and I have always wanted to work together," says Jill. "We don't compete; we inspire each other."

Good food has helped make Jen's house a place where friends love to gather. "One of my favorite things is to create a happy environment for people," says Jen, with (from left) Mandy Ingber, Jennifer Meyer, Courteney Cox, and Kristin Hahn.
The Elmores opened Jen's eyes to the benefits of eating wholesome, real food—and to the pleasure of hanging out by the stove while it's being prepared. "Jewels and Jill are like girlfriends," says Jen. Adds Jewels, "We solve all our life problems in here."
