Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
I want to be able to help the community build their cooking skills but also get excited about food. My goal is to teach and inspire through creating interactive lessons geared towards what you’re actually interested in cooking. I’m inspired by local and sustainable food practices and try to pass that off on all my students.

My family hired Rachel as a private chef for a dinner party for 5 for my mom’s birthday. She was so lovely and easy to work with, incredibly personable and responsive, and made our needs the priority. Her food was as unbelievable as her professionalism. So so good. She even brought birthday candles to put in the dessert for my mom- totally above and beyond. Would rate 10/10 and hire again in a heartbeat.

Details: Special occasion (birthday, anniversary, etc.) • 3 - 5 guests • Dinner • Premium (high end ingredients) • Dessert • American - formal • Italian • French • Meal prepared onsite • Only once • My home, venue, etc.

We worked with Rachel for a rehearsal dinner just before our wedding at a private home in Montecito. We had very strict requirements because my wife is both vegan and gluten free, as are many of our friends. We requested a light, healthy, and Mediterranean style dinner and Rachel produced an incredible selection of food that received compliments even from the non-vegan guests. On top of the food being absolutely delicious, it looked beautiful and was perfect for such a special occasion. Rachel was a pleasure to work with and was very responsive and accommodating. I highly recommend working with her, especially if you are looking for a high quality vegan-friendly meal.

Details: Bridal or baby shower • Dinner • Mediterranean or Middle Eastern • French • Vegan • Buffet • No, drop off only • Home • No kitchen • 30 - 39 guests • Plates, utensils and glasses • Standard (basic ingredients)
