Introduction: It sounds cliche, but I put love into my cooking. I think about the families that will be eating the food while I'm cooking, and tailor every detail to what I think they will enjoy - a bit more spice, a bit less salt...the longer I work with a particular client, the more I get to know them and their tastes. I get the pleasure of enjoying my work days, helping others, and earning a living all at the same time. What could be better?

My husband arranged for Kristi to come to our home for a belated Mother's Day dinner party. What a special event. The food was fresh, delicious and impeccably prepared. Kristi catered perfectly to our food sensitivities and made the evening flawless! We will definitely be calling again! E.L., Inverness

Kristi has been great to work with. She prepares weekly meals for my parents which requires special dietary needs/restrictions and the meals still taste great. My parents health have improved and I believe much of the improvement has been due to the improvement of their diet by way of the meals Kristi prepares for them.

Kristi does a great job preparing meals for my family. She boths cooks, and Bakes. I can pick just about any recipe from any site and she is on it. She is a great baker and is thorough with meal preparation. Often times she would not only cook but serve and assist with clean up while we were eating the various courses. She has cooked simple take out meals for us, or helped do small family parties 6 people.... She is very organized and provides complete billing. When sending us prepared meals, she has the cooking instructions clearly identified and the serving set up easy so all you do is through it in the oven

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I love to cook, have a background in food science, and love to help people. This is really the only career for me.

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    I cook weekly or biweekly meals for families for the most part, Mon-Fri.

  • What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

    Look for a personal chef whose strengths match your needs. For example, if you're looking to find a chef who can get some veggies into your kids' diets, you probably want a chef who is experienced in preparing meals for children. If you're a carnivore at heart, you probably don't want a chef who specializes in vegetarian cooking.

Not what you’re looking for?

No problem: we have pros for every job.
