Scott helped make an amazing birthday dinner for my boyfriend and 24 of our friends at our home. The food was delicious, everything was prepared perfectly and exactly how we discussed prior to the event. Scott was a pleasure to work with when planning the event, he was prompt, personable and truly a pleasure to have in my home. If you are looking for a private chef look no further than Scott, you will not be disappointed. He's amazing and I look forward to having him cook for us again.

We were so happy to have chosen Chef Anne to cater our Mom's 90th Birthday Party. From my first conversation with her to follow up email she was helpful professional and provided first rate service. Chef Anne made recommendations as well as guided me thru selecting Glueten Free etc type dietary concerns. I felt like Ive known her for years as she is so easy to work with, now I have a friend in the catering business. We had many positive comments how delicious everything was and I would recommend her and will be happy to call her again.

Chef Daniel delivered a great experience for a bunch of us friends away for a special weekend. He was able to make anything we wished for and had some great menu suggestions as well. He made a BBQ brisket so succulent and savory, along with an array of other dishes. It was an awesome meal. Chef came prepared, set things up nicely, and cleaned up after we were done. He was a pleasure to work with and we'd recommend him to anyone looking for a personal chef.

    Amelia is an extraordinarily talented chef and teacher. Her workshops are engaging, practical and fun. I’m still trying to figure out if there’s anything she cannot make delicious... She’s like a magical kitchen witch, who can take any ingredients and transform them into decadent nourishment for the body and soul.

      I have had the fortune for having meals prepared by The Shoreline Chef several times. I can attest to his friendliness, efficiency, and the food was absolutely delicious. His presentation is beautiful, and the wines he suggested the hosts serve was perfect! When you have Larry do your next dinner party, make sure you ask him to serve his Hot Eggplant Salad on the antipasto bar- it is my favorite! Yum! But regardless of what you choose to be served, rest assured that the food, presentation, and interaction with guests will be top-notch. Chef Larry is the best!

      About

      The Valley Bowl is a locally-owned personal chef service offering delicious meals made from local and organic ingredients. We all know the importance of gathering around a table for a nourishing, home-cooked meal. We’ve all come to understand that the best food is local, organic food cultivated in ways that are good for our bodies and the earth. And we all know how a delicious meal can erase a hectic day at work or a rocky day at school. But the truth is that many of us simply do not have the time, energy, or resources to scour farmers markets for fresh, organic produce or find a local farm that raises all-natural meats and poultry. Most of us do not have the time to cure our own meats, craft delicious cheeses, or make batches of fresh baked breads and cookies. Most of us do not have the desire – or the skill – to create dishes that are wholesome and unforgettably delicious! Fortunately, the Valley Bowl will do it for you. Without having to drive from the farm to the co-op to the specialty store, you and your family will enjoy amazing meals that are created especially for you. The Valley Bowl uses almost exclusively organic, always fresh produce, naturally raised meats and dairy products from local vendors, including Simple Gifts Farm of Amherst and the River Valley Market in Northampton. We will use these fresh, local ingredients to prepare thoughtful and scrumptious dishes in your kitchen and then pop them in your fridge or freezer so that they’re ready when you are. No pots and pans to scrub, no messy kitchen to clean, no more fast food or bad take-out and best of all, no more spending every night slaving in the kitchen when you could be relaxing around the table with family and friends. All you have to do is set the table, turn on the music, and uncork a bottle of wine.
