Jill Wilcox, owner of Jill’s Table, was born and raised in London, Ontario. Although Jill did not grow up in a “foodie” household, she always appreciated her mother’s signature Sunday night dishes, such as cabbage rolls and spaghetti and meatballs.
It was on a trip to Europe that Jill knew her life would revolve around food, well-prepared meals and bringing friends and family together around the table. It was while working at the London Free Press as a clerk-stenographer that Jill tried her hand at freelance writing and food styling, which she has continued to do since.
In 1999, with two small children at home, Jill opened a small store in Covent Garden Market called Jill’s Table. Two years later the store moved across the street to its current, much larger, location at 115 King Street. Jill’s Table is London’s premier specialty food and housewares store, bringing in the best products from around the world.
Jill’s Table has been the recipient of several awards:
In the spirit of giving back to the community, Jill established the Jill Wilcox Foundation in 2012.
The foundation raises funds and grants donations to food-related and learning projects that support women and children in need.
Jill’s love of sharing a well-prepared meal with family and friends has only grown over the years. She continues to pass on her culinary knowledge to all those who have questions and is always looking to learn something new.
