Debbie baked an amazing Red Velvet Cake for an event that I had recently. She worked with me on the size, presentation, and delivery so that I had nothing to do but taste the yummy results! Many who tasted the cake were taken back to childhood memories, including myself. Debbie is a personal chef who can come to you and not only do meal prep, but food for parties or other events in your home, in addition to baking a multitude of goodies herself! ￼￼Dec 6, 2019Debbie J.

Debbie was highly professional and extremely skilled. She cooked an amazing supper for our bachelorette party and took care of everything from preparation to clean up! We couldn’t have asked for a better night and were very spoiled by her. Thanks Debbie!Feb 29, 2020VerifiedDebbie J. Elder's reply

Thank you for your kind remarks William. It was a pleasure to cook for you and your guests on New Year's Eve.
Debbie was great! Best steak and wine I’ve ever had! Can’t wait to come back to AZ and book dinner with her again. She wasn’t incredibly responsive, helped me pick out a great menu and the food was incredible! Highly recommend!Feb 6, 2020VerifiedDebbie J. Elder's reply
