Jacqueline Laurita's brother-in-law, Jamie Laurita, accomplished a major achievement recently and Jac could not be prouder. The Real Housewives of New Jersey star took to Twitter to share her brother-in-law's success, after his picture appeared on the cover of Quintessential Barrington, a local magazine about life in the Barrington, Illinois area.

"My brother-in-law Jaime! So proud XO!" Jacqueline wrote next to the photo of his cover, which boasts the headline, "At Home With Culinary Rock Star Jamie Laurita."

We've met Jamie several times during his past appearances on Real Housewives of New Jersey, but we had no idea how awesome he is. The master chef has cooked for some of the coolest names out there, including tons of musicians like Madonna, Aerosmith, Sting, Prince, the Rollings Stones, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

He also wrote a cookbook with songbird Sarah McLachlan. How cool is that? Actually, Jamie was featured on The Oprah Winfrey Show for having "one of the coolest jobs in the world." That's pretty cool!

Now we know where Jacqueline gets her cooking chops from. In fact, all of the Jersey gals seem to be gifted in the kitchen department, as evidenced by their many uploaded pictures on Instagram and Twitter. These ladies love to show off their Italian creations!

We're happy for Jacqueline's family and it's great to see her giving her brother-in-law some public recognition for his achievements.
