Omgg I was so fortunate to find Chef Tamara..She provided a beautiful menu with many choices to choose from. The best part she worked around my budget. The experience her and the team provided was too notch. The courses were excellent and great quality. I never experienced a personal chef cooking for me in the privacy of my home. She made me and my date feel so special! Very professional and efficient in food service. I will definitely hire again for personal and catering services. Thank you for an awesome experience!

Details: Holiday meal (Mother's day, Valentine's day, etc.) • 2 guests • Dinner • Dessert • Premium (high end ingredients) • Dessert • Italian • Meal prepared onsite • Only once • My home, venue, etc.

I am so glad I found Chef Tamara. After working all day, I don't have the time, energy, nor interest in cooking. Take out was getting old too- Is the resaturant open? Are they answering the ohone? Do they have what we want?... Chef Tamara's gift is truly my family's blessing. We now have healthy, balanced meals that taste great! Not to mention, she also accommodates our crazy food allergies. I highly recommend Chef Tamara - her ingredients are fresh, menu is vast, and the food tastes great!

Details: Regular meal • 3 - 5 guests • Dinner • Standard (basic ingredients) • American - casual • Southern • Mediterranean / Middle Eastern • Asian • Barbecue • Indian • Meal delivered • A few times per week • My home, venue, etc. • At the pro’s location

Having never hired a personal chef before she was very easy to work with to give this special birthday gift to my boss. She was available on the actual birthday and was very accommodating in meeting me to give her a special bottle of wine for the evening meal. The food was impeccable. The night was a wonderful experience and I would use her again. She was very personable and friendly.

Details: Special occasion (birthday, anniversary, etc.) • 2 guests • Dinner • Premium (high end ingredients) • Cold beverages (alcoholic) • American - formal • Meal prepared onsite • Only once • My home, venue, etc.

We had a small wedding and Chef Tamara was our, hands down, one of our better choices. Food was amazing! Although they served a tad behind schedule, it certainly did not affect the presence or quality of our food. It was exceptionally tasty! Would definitely use her again.

Details: Special occasion (birthday, anniversary, etc.) • 11 - 20 guests • Dinner • Premium (high end ingredients) • Dessert • American - formal • Italian • Barbecue • Gluten free or celiac • Meal prepared onsite • Only once • My home, venue, etc.

I hired Chef Tamara for an intimate dinner for two. She did NOT disappoint! Every course was incredible. She presented me with numerous options for each course and was extremely personable. Her server was also lovely. Would 100% recommend!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My goal is to find a budget that works with my clientele to make them happy. My prices differ based on family style, buffet and plated. That being said I will work with any budget to ensure the happiness of my clientele. Thank you.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Speaking one on one with the client to find out their wants and goals. Developing menus based on cuisines my clients are interested in learning more about. Every menu is custom made for each client, based on their goals, budgets and nutritional goals. My number one priority is customer satisfaction. I pride myself on serving the best cuisine possible and making my clientele relaxed and taking over all responsibilities for them so they can enjoy their event.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I was nominated chef of the year through the American Culinary Federation. Won Iron Chef Three years running. Trained under many French, Italian, Mediterranean Chef's who were my mentors. Went to OCC for Culinary and OU for Business. I have taught many demos and cooking classes, specialize in wine dinners, and large parties.
