Personal Chef

Chef Nija is amazing! We hired her to cook a birthday dinner for a family of 8. She was the ultimate professional, communicating clearly via emails and phone calls prior to the event, and whipping up a delicious 3 course meal with incredibly generous portions (probably could have easily fed double the number of guests!) in our kitchen. She then cleaned everything and left the kitchen just as she found it. It was a pleasure meeting her, and we would gladly hire her again for future events!

Chef Nija worked with us to customize the menu and manage the cost for our family event. Everything was delicious, the service was lovely, and it was a wonderful event! I will be on the lookout for the next event where we can work with her again.

Nija was everything I could have asked for in a chef for my birthday weekend event! The food was perfection, the menu was spot in, she had a beautiful energy about her and her thoughtfulness was incredibly sweet. I will definitely be booking her again soon!

    Pricing options are guidelines: every clients needs are different and my goal is to develop pricing that fits your individual needs.

    The first order of business is the initial phone consultation, you and I will go over what you would like for me to prepare for your event. Your likes, dislikes, personal preferences, dietary restrictions, allergies etc.
