I hired Christine of TCC to make a private, personal dinner for my mother's birthday. We worked out a menu together and she gave suggestions and I explained my mother's favorites. In the end, it turned out perfectly! Christine surprised us with a lovely amuse bouche and then we had several wonderful courses, each more delicious than the last. Christine was fun, professional, and prepared all of the food and served it, so that I could just relax and enjoy my family. The crowning joy was the vanilla bean panna cotta with a fresh raspberry couli---absolutely over the top creamy, fresh and wonderful. We had such a great evening and having a private chef, in my own home, made me feel very pampered. If you are looking for a caterer for an intimate gathering, I couldn't recommend a company more highly. Since they focus on small parties and dinners, you get very personal, timely service! I know that they have cooking classes in private homes too. . . I will definitely try that next time I have a girls night in!

This was my first formal cooking class, I’m glad I chose the right person to help me brush up my skills. Melissa was very professional, informative and flexible. She definitely showed me new things I thought I was familiar with. She asked about specific recipes that my husband and I like or dislike. She offered some recipes as well. The food was delicious! She even gave wine pairing suggestions. I would definitely recommend Melissa! I will certainly be returning and would love to bring some friends along.

We hired Gabriel as a private chef for a party at our home & were so impressed! The dishes were delicious & our guests raved about the dinner for weeks! Gabriel is very professional & took care of everything so that we were able to just enjoy the evening with our guests. We also found out that Gabriel is an opera singer & he even sang a short piece for us which was such a treat! He teaches cooking classes as well, so next month we're going to have our friends back for a cooking party so we can learn his secrets!

I have been inspired to enlighten other people to use food as a tool in order to improve upon their condition after experiencing my own health and wellness successes through this Cooking for Cancer approach. We have to take an active role in maintaining a healthy body, and that is what I firmly believe in. We can no longer afford to relinquish the responsibility for our health to the medical industry. To preserve and keep our body healthy is our duty. We can no longer keep on poisoning our bodies with foods that are loaded with preservatives and pesticides, which is why I now offer Cooking for Cancer classes because I believe in it, especially when our health is compromised. I follow the 80/20 rule -- 80% raw and 20% cooked, as well as 80% alkaline and 20% acidic food. In my cooking classes, I provide tips and guidelines on how to formulate and maintain a satisfying and healthy diet in a creative and simple way.
