Personal Chef

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.

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!

I have enjoyed Chef Tammy's food several times and she has never disappointed me. Also, I have yet to find a cuisine that she cannot make. I have personally recommended her to coworkers and family who also rave about the quality of her food. Don't be mislead by her prices either, they are lower than her competition and she's always willing to negotiate. When I don't know what I want she recommends dishes for me which I always find myself in heaven. One of these times I'm gonna have to try her cooking classes she does, I've heard they're great. Best of all she supports local businesses by getting her fresh product from them.

  • 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.
