Chef Shieya was amazing! We requested a elegant dinner with white and gold for my husband's surprise birthday! She was very prepared and the food was amazing. We had the 3 course meal, avacado on bread, watermelon salad, lamb chops and cheesecake! Everything was loved by everyone. If we ever have a private chef again we will be contacting her again! Thanks again Chef Shieya!

Chef Shieya gave us an incredible experience at DADCHELLA. Her food was delectable and she did it all including great presentation for the Caprese Salad, the Butternut Squash Bisque, and the Chilean Seabass! I will definitely holla again and want to check out more of her cooking!! So delicious and her love is felt through her craft. DTLA has the best of everything and Chef Shieya represents that!!

Chef Shieya helped to curate a perfect meal for an outdoor dinner party for 15 friends. Her delicious meal and fantastic staffer added to a memorable night. The seabass and petite filet with truffle pea puree and poached asparagus were wonderful.

Chef Shieya and her assistant provided a beautiful reception dinner for me and my wedding guests. The party size was 15, including myself and my husband. We had the avocado crostini as our hor dourves, the watermelon salad for our starter, the Atlantic salmon for our entree, and the crème brûlée for our dessert. The food was really flavorful and was presented beautifully. She was very willing to work with my guests with dietary restrictions and within our budget. She even provided us with her homemade BBQ, which was tasty! Would absolutely book the Kookery for my next gathering!

Details: Special occasion (birthday, anniversary, etc.) • 11 - 20 guests • Dinner • Cocktail hour / hors d'oeuvres • Standard (basic ingredients) • American - formal • Meal prepared onsite • Only once • My home, venue, etc.
