Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: For the Love of Food and I have over 30 years experience as a Professional Chef, Pastry Chef & Nutritionist. All things food is my life & my love, and I can't wait to share it with others. At For the Love of Food we don't have stock menus or set recipes. We meet with every client, whether it's for a private cooking class, cooking party, catered event, or Corporate Team Building Workshop and customize the menu and each dish to precisely what you're looking for in terms of spice level, special diets, food allergies, likes and dislikes, etc. So, if you're looking for something unusual like gluten-free/dairy-free Fettucine Alfredo, or a completely vegan dessert spread - no problem, we're on it! Working with different people, meeting and forming relationships and turning them from a stranger to a forever client and friend through food is our goal.

Diane was a real pleasure to deal with.Very positive,upbeat and had ideas and suggestions I needed. She is talented and obviously enjoys what she does for her clients. She fixed food for my wife and I that we had not tasted before and it was a phenomenal experience.

Diane was terrific to work with and the food was outstanding. She is indeed the Pastry Diva. In addition, she fraught her way through a snow storm to make sure our Mother's Day Brunch was a success.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Pricing depends upon menu, staff required, alcohol or not, if travel is beyond our 20 mile travel distance.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    We sit down, either in person or on the phone, so they can tell me precisely what it is they are looking for in terms of cuisine, style, buffet or sit-down meal, formal or casual and their food likes and dislikes.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I am an honors graduate of the Culinary Institute of America. I am a Certified Executive Chef, as well as a Certified Nutritionist.
