Mici has become an integral part of our lives; in that she is welcome & trusted in our home to create healthy & nurturing meals (with our input as to allergies, preferences, cravings, and ever-changing medical issues); she brings her knowledge, expertise, and finely honed intuition into every meal and every bit of advice that we solicit from her. We couldn't imagine finding such a good fit with a personal chef; She is, as her business name: wholesome goodness awesomeness :)

Awe, Thanks Carole! I so love our weekly visits and hearing how much excitement you have for eating good food given all your restrictions. Thank you for trusting me, as that means a lot in this world. I feel blessed. Thank you.

I invested in Mici's amazing services last year and purchased a 3-month package, after tasting her food at a friend's house who had invested in the same. Mici provides so much more than cooking! She brings warmth, kindness, a great sense of humor, and a lot of love. She is SO professional. I had other chefs who came in and just never seemed to leave, taking FOREVER in the kitchen which became an inconvenience. Mici could make a week's worth of food in 4-5 hours (several different delicious dishes all tailored to my specific diet desires) and it was incredible! And she always made sure I had healthy snacks and healthy desserts to much on during the week and feed my sweet tooth without all the unhealthy processed sugar. She was able to meet all my desires for Gluten free, dairy free meals and kept refining her meals for me each week as I let her know what dishes I loved and what not so much. For me, I loved having lots of greens and less beans. And she was able to make that adjustment for me - and many other adjustments - quickly as we went along. I can't recommend Mici enough!! You won't regret having her fill you with nutrition and laughs, all with the utmost professionalism. Hope this helped you make a decision!

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

    Very simple pricing: My services do not include the cost of groceries or mileage. A typical Meal includes: ***A grain dish (or Paleo "grain" dish) ***A protein dish (vegan, vegetarian or Paleo) ***A soup ***2 vegetable dishes. You may substitute a dessert for any one of the dishes. The meals are designed to be enough servings for 4 people. I am Italian, so my portions sizes are on on the large side. 1 meal per visit: $169 2 meals per visit: $199 **I offer discounts for clients that sign a contract for 3 or more months.

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

    I often watch the cooking channel and to be honest, each one of the particulars of each client I have pushes me to excel more than any book.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    My mother and grandfather on my father's side were GREAT cooks. My father always told me to go watch.
