Chef Melanie was amazing throughout the entire process. From the moment I contacted her, she was extremely helpful in crafting a Classic French dinner menu for my wife’s birthday dinner. Melanie is very knowledgeable and offered several menu options, as well as recommended wine pairings for each course. Her suggestions were creative and thoughtful. On the day of the event, Melanie and her staff were extremely professional and accommodating towards all the guests. All of the courses served were delightful and flavorful. The main dish (Coq au Vin) was excellent in its presentation and execution. All in all, we were very pleased with Melanie, as a person and also in her culinary skills. Excellent! Highly recommended. Would definitely hire again. Thank you , Melanie.

Melaine cooked a great steak dinner for a large group of 16 people. She did it seamlessly and made the night run very smooth. Hiring a chef allowed me time to visit with friends instead of cooking as the hosts. Highlights of the meal were the Tomahawk steak and nutmeg bread putting with bourbon whip cream dessert.

Simply put, food and experience was tremendous. I would highly recommend Chef Mel. We had a group of 7 adults and 4 kids. Kids were served first so they could eat and go play while adults had a nice dinner. Kids loved the homemade Mac, veggies and bread while adults enjoyed delicious apps. Dinner had salad, sides and fish from there. The seared fish melted on your tongue. Dessert was out of this world - brûlée’d coconut cake with a passion fruit topping that was consensusly top five dessert in every adult’s life at the table. Chef Mel helped pack the leftovers and took care of clean up. Book a dinner with chef Mel and you will not be disappointed.

Chef Mel was everything you could have hoped for when planning a special celebration brunch for a 50th birthday and college reunion. She worked with me closely to craft the perfect menu designed to the guest of honors favorites and even tried a new recipe just to re-create a special dessert we had nearly 20 years ago! She was attentive to our timeline and needs, followed up & even was flexible to adjust timing on the day of the event. She showed up on time and just got to work creating an event to remember. By the time we were all dressed and ready for brunch, our feast was beautifully displayed for us to enjoy in the perfect setting. And the brunch was amazing!! I'm still dreaming of the maple bacon and the potatoes were "****" :). I couldn't have asked for more and would recommend her to anyone planning a special in-home catered event in the area! I'll share pictures soon! Thank you Chef Mel.

Chef Melanie was fantastic! She suggested a fabulous menu and when I described some of the dietary restrictions for a couple of members of the group, she was able to accommodate. She showed up exactly when she said she would. She did not mind us watching and asking questions. The meal was absolutely delicious! Hire her now!
