Like Us on Social Media, and We Will Love you back! Food Philosophy Have you ever experienced that restorative, rejuvenated feeling after eating a fresh and healthy meal? I am constantly reminded that the body will heal itself provided we give it good, whole organic foods in addition to exercise. I am an advocate for awesome, nourishing meals without excess sugar, heavy oils or high fat. Much of my influence comes from French cuisine because I appreciate their deep, historical understanding of gastronomy and complimentary flavors. Not once have I left a French meal feeling unsatisfied from the nose to the mouth to the stomach. I use these ideas and incorporate them into my cooking to provide you with an amazing gastronomical experience that you can share with each and every person in your life.

    Actually VERY GOOD. We had 50 guests for a Caribbean themed engagement party. Jennifer came up with a super buffet dinner- with some dietary requests handled well. Everyone enjoyed the food and there was plenty. If we were to do it again we would tell Jennifer to spice the side dishes up a bit more and hire her or someone else to help us replenish the trays of food and wash up so that we could mingle with guests. Many thanks to Jennifer for a job well done!

    Jennifer was everything I hoped for and more than I expected!! I hired her to conduct a family cooking class for Mother's Day. She was able to accommodate my last-minute request and tailored the meal to our preferences. She is professional, patient (I have teenage brothers), and a very talented chef. She shared a lot of fun tips & tricks of the trade and because she brought all of the ingredients & tools we were able to pull off the perfect surprise! An awesome group activity where everybody participates--Hire her if you get the chance!!

    Jennifer was a great teacher and she made sure that we understood why we were doing certain things. She pointed out options deviating from the recipe and was very patient. All in all, it was a great experience.

    We had a Celebration of Life for my Mother recently. Jennifer did an amazing job! The menu was perfect, the food delicious and plentiful, and the presentation was lovely. Her pricing was fair and reasonable. I also have a granddaughter with a nut allergy and she was so careful checking all ingredients for nut proteins. I give her 5 stars or more!

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Discuss vision and options with customer Provide Pricing & Statement of Work with 75% in advance Payment Perform Service with 25% pay at time of delivery
How did you get started doing this type of work?
As a degreed Engineer many people have asked Where does Culinary come into play? Well after I finished engineering school I stayed home to make a "home made" meal for my sons. They informed me they preferred what was in the box instead. It took a couple days to stop being mad at honest 7 year olds..... I realized that well I have been cooking since I was 9 and my mom while having one billion fantastic wonderful traits - cooking was not one of them.... So I went to culinary school and made the boys my taste testers AND much to their surprise - they liked the food (in the beginning not so much - HA). Even one of my sons is also a Chef (fantastic one too). Culinary was always a hobby for me and my 3 sons and now it is what I love to do day to day! We can either fulfill what you need at our location or come and do a custom event at your place.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Private and Corporate Customers, Parties, Ribbon Cutting Ceremonies, Wedding Rehersal Dinners, Anniversary, Surprise Events, Friends and Family Catering & Cooking Class Teaching, Private Date Nights, Engagement Parties
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Start with the end in mind. Day of the event - imagine what are your goals for the day - what do you want your party to provide to your family and friends? That will help us accomplish that result with the food being a detail.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Coordination Details - Full meal doesn't always mean appetizers, salad, dinner and dessert - which parts do you wish? Do you need linen, napkins, glasses, flatware, plates, bowls? How are you going to coordinate multiple vendors for large events? Let's meet so we can help take care of all of that for you!
