Personal Chef

Chef Christine worked with me within a very short time frame to create a wonderful family memory and birthday dinner. We agreed on a menu and she came to our home to cook dinner. She took the time to explain the steps to us as she prepared the food and engaged our 11yo who wants to be a chef. Different family members had questions about prepping different items and she was happy to have that conversation with us. The food was fresh (my sister-in-law is still going on about how delicious the tomatoes were 2 weeks later) and the finished product was absolutely delicious. We certainly hope to have her back with us in the future! If I’m able to edit this post later, I’ll add some pictures from our experience.

Hire Chef Christine ASAP...she is the! Her warm personality and positive, uplifting energy are matched by her extraordinary culinary skills! We had a very helpful phone consult beforehand and she conducted two separate vegan cooking classes for me. One with my husband and I and one with my mother. My Mom and I recently transitioned to vegan lifestyles and Chef Christine's coaching has been a god send! The meals were both flavorful and nutritious and PLENTIFUL! Having her in our home was a complete delight and she felt like family within minutes of arriving. I especially appreciate her willingness to answer questions and provide detail on not just how to prepare food but it's beneficial properties. She exudes the perfect balance of good times, patience and efficiency in the kitchen. I was thoroughly impressed by her ability to manage multiple dish preparation, hold casual conversation, and keep her sous chefs (my husband, mom, and I) on track! I absolutely recommend her to anyone who wants to learn, have fun, and enjoy great tasting meals from a chef with a heart of gold! I'll be hiring her again to do a culinary night with my girlfriends and I in the very near future!

Christine was great! We hired her as our personal chef for Valentine’s Day and the experience was amazing! She cooked a three course meal for me and my wife and we enjoyed every last bite! This was a surprise for my wife because she had been asking about having a personal chef for a long time. She loved Christine and was also very impressed with her skill in the kitchen. We highly recommend her for any special occasion or event!

We enjoyed a wonderful cooking experience with Christine, and would highly recommend her for either a cooking instruction or intimate meal with a loved one. I gifted this experience to my young daughter, so that she’s more comfortable in the kitchen, and so we can begin to experiment more with different foods, being that she eats a mostly vegetarian diet.

Christine came with such great energy to teach and cook with my team. She was eager to help us cook a Moroccan dish and gave a history lesson about Morocco. She guided the cooking lesson by supporting each of is from the prepping to the cooking. The food was delicious and the amount we had was more than enough. We had such a great time that we had to do it again!
