RUN, don’t walk, to book Chef Taylor for your next event!!! If you are looking for a personal chef to cook you the most incredible, delicious, fresh, authentic cuisine you’ve ever tasted from the comfort of your own home, look no further then Chef Taylor – she is your girl! We worked with Chef this past weekend for a surprise Bachelorette dinner, and it was a massive hit!! Not only was the food delectable (& reasonably priced) but Chef was beyond responsive & helpful in the weeks/days leading up to the event. She provided numerous mouthwatering menu options and graciously allowed me to swap out different dishes that catered to our preferences. We had a large group with a lottt of different food allergies/dietary restrictions. Chef took each and every one into consideration when crafting the menu and could not have been more kind & accommodating through the whole process! On the day of the event, Chef arrived with all of her own equipment & was completely self-sufficient in the kitchen. While our group was out exploring New Orleans during the day, she provided me status updates via text which gave me complete peace of mind knowing I could count on Chef to deliver exactly what we discussed by the time we arrived home. When she was finished cooking, the kitchen was immaculate--you would have never known they were ever there. If Thumbtack allowed, I’d give Chef Taylor (and her assistant J—shout out to J!) more than 5 stars. She was a true delight to work with start to finish and I can’t thank Chef enough for making our weekend so memorable. Chef Taylor—THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts for an UNBELIEVABLE experience! You are a true Culinary Talent, Boss Lady & and Incredible Human. I’ll be dreaming about that Skillet Cornbread & Crab Dip for weeks! Until next time…

If the option was there, I would select all five....Work Quality, Professionalism, Responsiveness, Value, and Punctuality. Nola She Chef was also friendly, upbeat, and had such an awesome attitude! When I asked my guest what they enjoyed the most about the weekend, "The private chef meal" was unanimously the response. The food was awesome! If I am ever in NOLA again and need a chef, She Chef will be the I call. ***Hope All is Well and You are staying safe!***

This was the first time I ever hired a private chef, and it was the best experience. The food was better than the restaurant. It was easy to communicate with her, she was punctual, and very friendly. The next time we are in New Orleans we will be using Taylor again!!!!!!!

Chef Taylor was really great! She provided menu options and worked on a speciality item for someone with allergies. And her food was exceptional. She catered a party and every single person absolutely loved her food. We were going for authentic Cajun and she really delivered on that. I still think about the meal and wish I could have more of it. Thanks, Chef!
