Chef Jen was great to work with. She was attentive, organized, and helpful in creating a menu for my son’s first birthday. The food was fresh and delicious, and everyone at the party raved about it afterwards. Thanks Chef Jen!

Jennifer was an amazing person to work with for my 70th birthday celebration. From start to finish, she was not only professional, But her food was beautifully presented and delicious! Together, we created a menu to my specifications and she produced it flawlessly. I look forward to having her work for me again in the future.
