I had such a wonderful time taking a private cooking class with Sylvia! She was very professional, knowledgeable & kind! Even met me at the grocery store to help me shop and teach me about different ingredients along the way! We made 2 delicious meals & I look forward to my next lesson!

We hired Elegant Eats for an anniversary party for 25 people and the experience was delightful! It was all Chef Jacquelyn said it would be and MORE!! The food was exceptional, service was professional, and Chef Jacquelyn was wonderful to work with. She took our ideas and expanded on them to make our event truly memorable. We can't wait to be able to enjoy Elegant Eats again!

I work well under high volume. I want to work in a professional establishment. My strengths are being respectful of others in the kitchen as well in the home of the clients. I offer a creative, intelligent approach to all aspects of the catered affair, whether 2 people or to 200.
