Introduction: MEAL PREP CLIENTS PLEASE READ BEFORE CONTACTING! **Meal prep client pricing starts at $85+/hour plus groceries, depending on location** Hello! I'm Chef Ashley, I offer meal prepping for your daily meals, catering for events, brunch, hors d'oeuvres, small to large charcuterie boards, packed lunches for picnic parties and vegan/vegetarian/gluten free options. With personally designed menus, and hand picked ingredients, Let me take the hassle out for you so you can sit back and enjoy! I was raised on Florida's gulf coast where I worked in many variations of restaurants from Saint Petersburg, down to Boca Grande to Miami. I learned so many different styles over the years, but the most influential cook in my life was of course, my Grandmother! I was cooking with her at such a young, which made me love being in the kitchen, I learned that food brings people together and it became my passion. In 2018 I moved to Chicago for 4 years. This was when I discovered my love for being a Personal Chef.  Being able to curate personalized menus for clients and their families. Being apart of day to day events, It keeps things fun and fresh! I love being able to help ease someones day by delivering my food to your table. I decided in the Summer of 2022 it was time to be back in Florida. I packed up my Chicago apartment and headed south. Now that I'm back on the gulf coast I'm here to serve YOU fabulous food!

Chef Ashley worked with me to plan a great unique menu to cater to my tastes. Very easy to work with and gave us the night off! She brought everything needed to work in the limited kitchen provided by the vacation rental. The food was so delicious that the group couldn't pace themselves and by the time dessert rolled through, we were stuffed!! Luckily, the leftovers provided us a return to experience the next day. By the time the chef left, the kitchen was clean and spotless. We had some very happy guests.

Absolutely Phenomenal! We reached out to Chef Ashley for a private cooking and dining experience for my wife’s parents (my in-laws) for their 60th Wedding Anniversary, at their home, and the evening and food was truly magical. Chef Ashley is an UNBELIEVEABLE Chef, she was very friendly and interactive, and her timing of plating the items was done with precision. The food preparation, presentation, and taste of our 5-course meal was nothing short of exceptional!! You will find Chef Ashley to be very responsive, helpful, and engaging throughout the entire culinary planning and cooking process. If you want an amazing 5 + Star, at home, private dining experience with an incredible Chef…you need to contact Chef Ashley- we are already booking her again for a future dining engagement this year!!

Details: Special occasion (birthday, anniversary, etc.) • 3 - 5 guests • Dinner • Dessert • I'm flexible • Dessert • American - formal • Meal prepared onsite • Only once • My home, venue, etc.

Ashley made our 30th anniversary the most wonderful and memorable celebration of our wedding so far…… We decided on a private anniversary dinner and, to make it even more special, we decided to have Ashley as our personal chef. She gave us delectable menus to choose from and custom tailored our meals to our individual tastes. She cooked in our kitchen and each course was sensually delicious. Neither of us ever had a meal that tasted better than Ashley’s.. THANK YOU ASHLEY FOR MAKING OUR ANNIVERSARY SO SPECIAL !!!!! Our advice is, if you are even remotely considering a personal chef for your event DON’T WAIT !! Please contact Ashley NOW !

Details: Special occasion (birthday, anniversary, etc.) • 2 guests • Cocktail hour / hors d'oeuvres • Dinner • Dessert • Premium (high end ingredients) • Dessert • American - formal • Mediterranean / Middle Eastern • Southern • French • Meal prepared onsite • Only once • My home, venue, etc.

We loved our dinner created by Plated Per Palate! I would definately hire her again! Everything was delicious, we did not feel rushed and she cleaned everything up.

Ashley catered for our son's first birthday. She is very professional. The food was delicious at a reasonable price. Our house has lots of stairs. Ashley had to run up and down the stairs to prepare for our party, but she didn't mind. Everything was still served nicely on time. She constantly checked and refilled the trays, cleaned up along the way, and after the party. We had guests coming late, but they could still enjoy warm food. We highly recommend Ashley.
