Karla and her team were absolutely fantastic - they showed up on time, took over my kitchen and worked their magic for our party of 25! The food was delicious and the presentation and attention to detail outstanding! They even baked a couple dishes that a guest brought without a second thought. I highly recommend Karla and her team and look forward to working with them again - an absolute delight!

Karla and Danny are AWESOME! We hired Karla to make a birthday dinner for my wife. We have never hired a personal chef and wanted a unique experience. We got an amazing evening with FANTASTIC, flavorful 5 course dishes prepared and presented beautifully. Karla & Danny arrived on time and had a beautiful bouquet of sunflowers for my wife (such a nice touch). Dinner was for our family of four. Karla customized the dishes to meet all of our dietary needs. The food was mouth watering and so much better than going to a restaurant. Karla and Danny seemed to dance in the kitchen in perfect sync. We sat around our large kitchen island watching them prepare the meal. It was like watching a cooking show. We had great conversation and liked we got to interact with Karla and Danny. Dinner ended with a mouth watering dessert and Karla even brought a birthday candle so we could sing Happy Birthday to my wife. Best of all, the kitchen was cleaned and the trash was emptied. This truly was an experience my family never will forget! Thank you Karla & Danny for creating a beautiful dinner my family will never forget. I would HIGHLY recommend Karla.

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

We had THE BEST experience with Katla. The food was DELICIOUS, and she was a joy to work with. She communicated with me at all points of the process and worked with me to make sure that we had just what we wanted in a meal for a price that matched our budget. I couldn't have asked for anything more in this experience and I can't say enough about how wonderful and professional her services are. I highly recommend Karla to anyone who is looking for a delicious meal with high quality ingredients and superb customer experience. Thank you Karla!
