Bill and Paul were terrific. They were reliable, creative, relaxed, and friendly. The event was my daughter's birthday, so they took 10 young kids through 2.5 hours of cooking pizza, sugar cookies, and cupcakes. The kids had a blast and the food was delicious. I would definitely use Peppermill again.

Jessica has a masterful way with plant and ingredients. She works and creates intuitively such that her dishes have the highest vibration possible. I hosted and planned a woman's yoga retreat, and I was lucky enough to have Jessica along to create specialized herb formulas and smoothies for the women. Every woman on the retreat was drawn to Jessica's unique and powerful way with food. Without a doubt, she is an Enchantress/Artist of food. You will be SO lucky to benefit from her healing power.

I am continually supported and inspired by her work on and individual and larger community level. I highly recommend having a consultation with her to make the most of your healthful lifestyle choices for optimal heath and healing.

Jessica expertly worked from a comprehensive questionnaire and other tools to understand my dietary needs (as well as food pleasure needs) to design the ideal diet for me, as well as delicious meal plans. Her culinary skills are superb. My health has improved dramatically, and these organic meals, from locally sourced ingredients, have changed my life.

Nate and his sous chef cooked a delicious 4 course meal for me and five of my friends for a bachelorette party. A salad of fresh, organic greens with pickled shallots, tomatoes and a homemade vinaigrette, a stuffed chicken appetizer, a delicious salmon with quinoa, wilted greens and an avocado cream aioli. I highly recommend Haven foods!

Just enjoyed a wonderful dinner with grassed short ribs very tender accompanied by Brussels sprouts, butternut squash with butter,cinnamon. All spiced to perfection. Love haven foods. Good eating, healthy eating and ready in 15 min. So good after a full day. Delivered weekly meals to my door weekly.

To the dining community, Joan Dahl-Lussier was the owner and proprietor of the her own restaurant for more than a decade, with many years of experience in organic, fresh culinary artistry! She insists on only fresh, organic and local ingredients, using fresh grown herbs and spices to season her mouth-watering entrees. Her homemade baked goods are unparalleled, bringing the best of sweet and healthy to the breakfast pastry and bread choices. However, her crowning achievement in my opinion is her ability to create a new and fresh menu of specials every week. She is not afraid to try new things in the test kitchen and work the recipe until it is just perfect, blending ingredients that the average cook would never entertain combining. These mouthwatering dishes are an exciting surprise and never disappointing! Joan is an expert organic culinary genius and gets FIVE stars from me!!

Joan was an AMAZING business owner who was an AMAZING Cook. She even took the time and energy to learn how to make Gluten free foods and was amazing and made all of her food with love which I believe is one of the reasons why all her food was amazing and why she had regular customers on a regular basis.

Brendan came to the house to give my 9 year grandson a cooking lesson. H chose Italian from a list sent by Brendan and Chicken Rollatini as the main course. H had the time of his life!! Brendan explained and demonstrated but allowed H to do the work. Brendan chose not to wear his Chef's whites because he didn't want to intimidate H. It was an incredible experience (with delicious results) and I would happily recommend him to anyone who asks!!!
