We offer both in home cooking services and meal prep services that is customized and delivered to your front door. About Me: I am a Taiwanese born American. My culinary style is influenced by my love for bold flavors found in Chinese, Thai, and Mexican cuisines. I have worked in multiple Michelin restaurants including Saison, Angler, and Tien Xian Lou. I am passionate about serving food that brings a smile to people's faces! I lived in NYC for 8 years, where I danced passionately as a professional ballroom dancer while attending the International Culinary Institute.

Monica was very attentive to our dietary needs - whether it was vegetarian, lactose intolerance, she was able to work around our party and come up with beautiful dishes that everyone enjoyed. Her passion for food, global cuisine knowledge, plating aesthetics are why we repeatedly hire her as our personal chef. Would recommend her to anyone looking to “eat around the globe” at home.

Monica is an amazing chef and a beautiful soul! Her passion for food and connection with people makes her an extra-ordinary chef. Dining with her does not only end with a yummy happy tummy but an entire culinary experience that will jolt all of your senses. Lovely presentation, salivating courses, wonderful aroma - and lots of laughter and joy in between. Where else can you get this?! Highly recommended.

I HIGHLY recommend Chef Monmon's services! I live alone and I don't really know how to cook, so I tried her meal prep service, and it has been absolutely phenomenal. Every single meal is a piece of art and looks like a dish from a Michelin restaurant. The meals are a good mix of Eastern and Western food. Every meal is unique so I never get tired of her food. The food tastes fantastic and is very healthy. Chef Monmon is very professional. She replies fast and always delivers on time. When I have house parties, I use the dine-with-chef service. She comes over and prepares all the food for the guests. If you're looking for an amazing meal prep service, this is it.

My experience with Chef Monmon has been so pleasant. She is a very cheerful person, works really hard, and prepared everything on time according to the venue. Her food is delicious with great presentation. Everyone of my guest are blown away with the menu, especially with the Bouillabaisse soup. Monica is a delightful chef to work with. I will definitely ask Chef Monmon to come back again and again.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I charge per person and I don’t include grocery costs, because groceries costs can vary largely depending on what you would like to eat.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Firstly to get on a 15 min call to talk. Then I will offer a menu proposal and email it to you and work together on revising it. Once the menu and budget for grocery is confirmed, I will request a 50% deposit to secure your booking. On the day of the event I will come early to your home with all the groceries to prepare and cook. I stay and serve the guests and clean up the kitchen.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I received my grand diploma in culinary arts from the International Culinary Center in New York City. As well as my apprenticeship in a Chinese fine dining Michelin restaurant in Taipei as well as a seafood Michelin restaurant in SF.
