My family and I visited Anna Maria Island for vacation and had 2 wonderful meals prepared by Vivace Gourmet Personal Chef. We have some picky family members and Jenner went above and beyond to make all of us happy. The only thing we were disappointed in is that we didn't have her to prepare all of our meals!! It was so nice to be able to enjoy family while we ate her wonderful apps, enjoyed dinner and dessert and went for a walk while she cleaned up!! We all felt spoiled and wished her back the rest of our stay on the island. EXCELLENT!! She had wonderful ideas for our dairy and gluten free family members but my MoM was still able to have her bread with her meal.....lol. Thanks JennerApr 29, 2014Vivace Gourmet Personal Chef Services's reply
Thank you so much, I really enjoyed meeting your family and I'm glad yiu enjoyed everything. I hope I get the opportunity to cook for you on your next visit!
Chef Jenner was absolutely phenomenal!! Definitely worth every penny. We had her Spanish night and the paella was the best I have every had. And her homemade churros were a fan favorite for 9 girls. All the food she prepared for us was above and beyond what I ever expected!Jul 19, 2018VerifiedVivace Gourmet Personal Chef Services's reply
Hi Catherine, it was my pleasure cooking for you all. Thank you so much for the wonderful review, I'm glad you enjoyed the meal!
Chef Jenner is amazing! She cooked a surprised vegan dinner for 7 for my fiance's birthday. The food was soooooo good even the non-vegans loved every bite of it. Not only was the food to die for, she has an awesome personality. Very personable and engaged. Thanks for making his 30th birthday one to remember. I will definitely use her services again and recommend her.Apr 18, 2018VerifiedVivace Gourmet Personal Chef Services's reply
Thank you so much for the wonderful review, it means a lot to me. I enjoyed meeting your friends and family -hopefully I helped you create another vegan! ;-)
Chef Jenner is absolutely amazing! I contacted her less than a week away to cook a special dinner for ten people while my family was vacationing in Holmes Beach. She was punctual, professional, kind and fun. From the appetizers to desserts everything was delicious! We were so impressed with everything she made! I would highly recommend her! We can’t wait to work with her again the next time we are in the area!Mar 11, 2018VerifiedVivace Gourmet Personal Chef Services's reply
Thank you so much, Sean. I enjoyed meeting you and your family and I'm so glad you loved the dinner!
Chef Jenner provided a wonderful meal for our family while on vacation. The food was very good and it was stress free not having to worry about cooking and clean up! We got to enjoy time together which was priceless! Thank you Chef Jenner!Mar 13, 2018VerifiedVivace Gourmet Personal Chef Services's reply
Hi Heather, I'm glad I could make your family visit to Florida more enjoyable. Thank you for the opportunity!
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Personal Chef services are personalized and highly customized according to each client's taste and needs. Pricing can vary according to menu and budget. When setting a budget, please keep in mind that a Personal Chef is spending time beyond your event planning, and the entire day of your event is spent shopping, cooking and cleaning. You should expect to pay more than you would in a restaurant, but you are getting much more, too. Gratuities, while not required, are appreciated and not included in pricing quotes.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Every customer is different. My first objective is designing a menu that is perfect for their event, then we go from there.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a passion for cooking and I am self taught. I currently possess a Food Service Manager safety certification through Safeway.
