Introduction: Every customer's menu is modified to their enjoying; including cooking styles from around the world or region, and also considering any dietary are confinements. Local's freshest ingredients are always used. Cooking, it is the only thing that makes me happy and knowing my creativities makes others cheerful, as well. I appreciate making menus for individuals and families because they can get back home to a solid supper and have some quality time together. Instructing teens and adults good cooking skills is an option.

Amazing! Simply amazing! I hired Rica and her team to come cook at my house for my wife and my 15 year wedding anniversary. We had 14 guests attend and zero went away hungry. Rica was very responsive to our request. We worked out a budget together based on our food desires. She asked great questions to help determine menu options. We had so many highlights that included lobster, ahi tuna, pork belly bao, a play on chicken and waffles. They were all outstanding. The highlights for me were the desserts. My wife loves carrot cake and bread pudding but always says that they have to be worthy to ingest the calories. Rica’s were so good that she was almost mad at me because she kept eating them. In summary, I am new in town in Arizona and I know that when I have another party, I only need to make one call for food and that is to Rica!

Rica and her team were absolutely amazing! I contacted Rica and she responded within minutes. We spoke on the phone the next day and I told her a very broad description of what I was looking for and she turned it into a culinary masterpiece. We did an Asian/Mexican fusion menu and it was beyond magical. She nailed exactly what I had made up in my head but couldn't necessarily put into words. She had a team of two additional sous chefs - Jasmine and Efren who were extremely professional and friendly. They were very attentive and spaced out our meal perfectly. The kitchen was cleaner when they left then before the team arrived. I could not recommend Rica and her team enough!! 5 gold stars for sure!

OMG!!! What a night. I hired Rica as a birthday gift for my siblings and their spouses. She was not only accommodating but very professional. She worked with me on the menu and did an amazing job. My siblings loved her and said she was fun, friendly and professional. They also noted her food was excellent. We would definitely hire her again.
