From the planning phase to the clean up after the party, Sheiya and her Kookery team did an absolutely amazing job for my mother's 90th birthday celebration. Sheiya has a true gift and passion for cooking which was reflected in every signature dish and drink that she and her team served our guests. We had 30 guests ranging from five to 90 years of age and Sheiya was able to accommodate everyone. Everything was so delicious! We just sat back and enjoyed the party while Sheiya and her team worked their magic. Fabulous!

Shieya was excellent!! She and her team catered a 20 person sit down dinner at my home. She created and stuck to the cocktail hour/dinner schedule. She was flexible on menu creation. The food was delicious and my kitchen was clean when she left. Shieya also brought a bartender who was excellent and made delicious custom cocktails. Her bartender was also much more reasonably priced than going through a separate bar tending service. I was not very experienced in in-home catered dinners and Shieya talked be through the whole process. My event went so smoothly and I got tons of compliments. I'd definitely use the Kookery again!!

OH MY GOODNESS WHERE TO START. I am an event planner and have hired Chef Sheiya for my events - AND WILL ONLY EVER HIRE THE KOOKERY! I don't even know how to put into words how amazing she is and The Kookery. I can't begin to describe how AMAZING she is, and her food! The flavors, complexities, QUALITY, attention to detail, presentation, creativity...not enough words! Every single guest who eats her food RAVES about it. She creates an entire experience down to the smallest detail, special orders materials to match the aesthetic, her team is amazing - a dream to work with and clearly loves her ...and she clearly loves what she does! Do yourself a favor and BOOK THE KOOKERY ! She is an absolute joy to work with and makes every single party above and beyond what it would be without her. I love you Chef!! Never working with anyone else if i an help it!
