I organized a trip for 25 people to stay at a villa in Tuscany, Italy this summer for 8 days and was fortunate to have Lilian as our house Chef. She did a fabulous job on every detail including meal planning, shopping the Italian markets, kitchen prep work, cooking and presentation. The villa had a commercial kitchen which she handled expertly and created delicious meals for the group. She even came in under budget! I would highly recommend Busy Bee and plan to use her for my next event.

We have had personal chefs in the past and all were good experiences, but Shawna was a cut above. The experience that she provided was exemplary in every facet. Shawna was personable, prepared, and her food was exquisite. She will be called upon in the future to cater any event we may have. We give her our highest recommendation.

Fantastic meal, way exceeded expectations and was much more affordable than other private chefs we contacted. Would highly recommend to anyone hosting a dinner!! Originally we looked at making a group dinner reservation to dine out in Palm Springs for a birthday party, having Cucina Migrante come to our vacation rental made for a more relaxing and unforgettable dining experience. Francesco and Adisa are true pros!

Kevie is a gifted pastry chef whose modern desserts showcase her unique experience. She prepared a beautiful dessert bar table for a large event of 600+ people that our company was sponsoring. The treats were delicious and nutritious baked using our Sugar 2.0 product which includes soluble fiber and probiotics (www.sugar2pt0.com). Her recipes are incredible, and you will be pleased with her sweet treats for your friends and family. She is a professional and fun to work with too. I highly recommend her and am impressed with her baking techniques and capacity to foresee the outcomes! Thank you so much Kevies Kitchen! Everyone loved your yummy treats, you made our event a huge success!

Rob provided a perfect event from the food to the wine. He was personable, knowledgeable, and professional all while providing a fun dinner experience! From planning the menu to throwing in some surprises for the guests, he is passionate about what he does. I have used him several times and have never been disappointed in the whole experience. Superb job!!!

About

As a private chef, I can work more directly with client to produce a very specific event. My motto, Rustic on Purpose, Healthy on Accident, means that we use real food that you will be healthier for eating. I focus on using a clients existing dishes, china, and furniture to minimize rental charges.
