  1. #1 Full of Flavor Personal Chef Service

    (6 reviews)

    Julie P.

    Chef Gason was amazing! He cooked a fabulous four-course dinner for four at my home and helped to make my husband's thirtieth birthday one that we'll never forget. He prepares everything on site (and even cleans the entire kitchen after)! He is a terrific person and chef!

  2. #2 Oy Vey Private Chef and Catering

    (12 reviews)

    Lisa E.

    Chef Chris was fabulous!!! The food was really, really good and he is a super nice person. He fit in well with our family and we ended up having a "stand around the kitchen" type of very comfortable dinner party. There was only 7 of us celebrating my Mom's 80th birthday. Chef Chris was willing to spend a lot of time talking about the food and how it was prepared, so we all learned a bit about New Orleans cooking. I highly recommend him, especially an intimate dinner party, although I'm sure he could very successfully handle a much larger event.

  4. #4 Laura Durand Personal Chef

    (7 reviews)

    Alexandra H.

    Laura cooked for me and 7 of my friends for a joint birthday celebration. She suggested a beautiful menu that started with an oyster and champagne hour. The oysters were perfectly shucked and the baked Camembert was to die for, as it melted onto the plate with each cut into the cheese. This was followed by 4 courses that were all tasty and full of amazing flavors that just got better with each bite. Of note was perfectly sautéed scallops complemented by a beautiful bright green chimichurri with a little spicy kick at the end. The beef tenderloin was perfectly cooked, juicy and full of flavor paired with a parsnip purée that was so decadent and rich. All the food was cooked, served, and dishes cleaned by Laura and her waitress, all while I was able to sit back and relax with all of my guests. The waitress was a perfect additional touch. She was fun, friendly, and most importantly, kept our glasses full. It was a restaurant experience with the intimacy and privacy of being in my own home. Thank you so much for making the night so special. :)

    (7 reviews)

    Cathleen P.

    We had an excellent experience. Brandon was responsive to our request, and everything was as we asked. His input was helpful in creating even more exciting dishes then we had requested. We love the opportunity to relax while someone else cut and cleaned. Overall well done. We would do it again in a heartbeat. Thanks Brandon.

  7. #7 Veronica Bonner

    (1 reviews)

    Tracy M.

    I hired Veronica to cook a three course dinner for a Holiday Dinner Party and she did such an amazing job that all of my friends could not stop talking about how good the food was and they all took some home. The menu consisted of Crab Cake and Boudin with remoulade and Steen's Cane Syrup sauce over mixed greens for the appetizer, the main dish was a beautifully roasted Prime Filet with a side of roasted potatoes and haricot vert, and the dessert blew everyone away with a salted caramel chocolate tart. The timing of the dishes was perfect and there wasn't a single lull in the meal, everything was a high note. If you want amazing food with impeccable service, a charming personality, and a very personable chef, then Veronica is absolutely the chef you need!

  8. #8 The Fisherman's Daughter

    (8 reviews)

    Rachel G.

    We couldn't have asked for anything more from Chef Cyn! First of all, from the beginning, Cyn was a pleasure to work with. I told her the experience I was looking for and together we created the menu for our evening. I was in New Orleans for my sister's bachelorette party and I wanted to have a unique experience for her. Cyn delivered! There were 8 of us total and I asked Cyn for a semi-hands on cooking class for the group. It was perfect! Cyn showed up on time with her sous chef and prepped for dinner, explaining what she was doing and all about Creole vs. Cajun food as she did it. She offered to let us do some chopping, but I think the girls were pretty focused on their wine and her directions ;) On the menu was a simple, fresh salad, crawfish etouffee, and a delicious and light (what we asked for!) fresh strawberry dessert. Everyone loved it, Cyn was a doll, and it was such a fantastic meal and experience. I highly recommend using Chef Cyn! You will not be disappointed.

Thumbtack Spotlight

The Fisherman's Daughter

(8 reviews)

What do you love about your job?

Cooking is my passion. Preparing delicious food is my love. The joy on my clients' faces when an event has been a great success gives me the motivation to continue doing what I love to do. It is priceless to feel that I'm making a difference in someone's life.

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

I have to attribute my inspiration to my parents; both were great cooks. I decided in my 50's to walk away from my legal assistant career and enroll in a culinary school. I decided to become a personal chef in my junior year when I began cooking for a family of five. Having raised four children, my first thought was, "I can do this!!" I love meeting a lot of amazing people along the way. I have made friendship with every client that I work with. My job allows me to provide quality services while doing the thing that I am passionate about.
