I've seen The Cookin' Diva effortlessly cater event's from an annual Detroit Police Dept. luncheon to extremely intimate wedding reception's. Her menu's (wine list optional) are as diverse as the clientele served. Her perfection is only surpassed by the professionalism and passion for all things culinary.

The Cooking Diva's devine delicacies tantalize the tongue and provide a powerful sensation of delight with every fork full. I have utilized the services of the Cooking Diva for intimate romantic dinners prepared in my very own kitchen and served by the Cooking Diva herself. Due to the professional and personal touch that is given I ONLY go to her for my most important events. The presentation is OUTSTANDING!!!!
