We loved our experience. From getting to know Diane a little bit while she was preparing our delicious 3 course meal; to our privately served dinner; to walking into a clean kitchen afterwards. We even have leftovers to enjoy the next day! I would highly recommend Chef Diane.Feb 10, 2018VerifiedDiane S.'s reply
Thank you so much for the lovely and colorful review! It was fun and I hope to work with you again!
Instead of repeating all the other raves, here's a different bit. Initially, she suggested a dessert (which was clearly delicious based on other reviews.) But I happen to not be so muc of a fan of super sweet desserts (eg, cakes with icing). So I said something vague like, "rustic" and that I like galettes... and she immediately came up with a suggestion for a plum galette... I'm a foodie. I've eaten all over the world. This dessert was perfect. (...so was everything else, just as you'd expect from her reviews.)Sep 19, 2017VerifiedDiane S.'s reply
Craig, thanks so much for the very warm review. Glad I could hit your tastebuds spot on!! Hope to work with you again!
Our experience with Chef Diane of RedFox Dinners was excellent. She was very communicative from the beginning with menu choices, dates/times, and all the other details leading up to the dinner. She was punctual, polite, and very efficient in preparing our meal. We confidently recommend her to anyone who is looking for an in home chef to prepare a scrumptious meal. I have recommended her already to a colleague and a neighbor. Thanks, Chef Diane!Jan 23, 2018VerifiedDiane S.'s reply
Thank you for such a thoughtful review, Kevin! We did have fun, didn't we? Hope to serve you again! Woof! to Riley!
chef Diane did a great job with our meal selection. Half way through the week my diet changed to dairy free and gluten free and she made modifications to our meals to accommodate this by making the needed changes.Sep 24, 2017Diane S.'s reply
Thanks very much, Barb! I hope to work with you again!

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I include the price of groceries in my quote and stay within the customer's budget. Price quoted also includes my time driving, shopping for groceries, prepping, cooking, serving, cleaning up.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Consultation by phone or in person concerning menu; recommendations for types of food to purchase (all organic, for example), including food allergies or sensitivities/dislikes; and preferences on where I should shop for the client's groceries. I then shop and prep, preparing all dishes from scratch, featuring homemade ice creams and cakes/baked goods, breads. Salad dressings and meat sauces (usually wine-based) are also homemade, individually following the course of the dinner, so that flavors trail from beginning to end. I cook proteins at the client's home, usually, serve the dinner, plated, and clean up after.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am newly located in Gainesville, but have cooked for gatherings for many years and started a personal chef business 5 years ago in Philly. I have certificates for culinary classes in France (Lyon and Paris) in 2010 and 2012 which I took for personal inspiration and betterment and I cook a large variety of foods, French sauces being my specialty. I also believe in healthy eating, so I can cut calories in most dishes if asked.
