Kirsten was very professional. She created an outstanding meal. We highly recommend Fresh Chef Detroit for your private event.Apr 25, 2016Verified
We hired Kirsten for a 60th birthday/New Year's Eve party and she was absolutely amazing! She was so accommodating and easy to work with through the planning phase, worked with us to prepare a menu that worked for everyone despite many different food restrictions, and the food was presented beautifully and was beyond delicious! We couldn't have been happier with our decision to use Fresh Chef Detroit for our party and can't wait to have another one so we can use her again. Highly, highly recommend her!!Jan 2, 2016Verified
Fresh Chef Kirsten came just at the right time in my life. She cooked for my family for several months because I couldn’t. She prepared anything we wanted and added her own specialities as well. Everyone loves her and her cooking. Every dinner ended with all of saying on the count of 3. THANK YOU, KIRSTEN! We highly recommend her and she is a pleasure to have in your home.Jul 9, 2019
Kirsten was awesome! Not only was the food great, but she was very personable as well. She helped to make my proposal magical.Jan 19, 2014Verified
Kirsten did a great job for a family dinner party. The food was fresh and healthy, and she was great to work with. Came in with everything, prepared the dinner at the house in about 3 hours and left without a trace! Except for the wonderful leftovers. I really enjoyed entertaining this way. Planning my next event now!Dec 17, 2012Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My pricing is in line with others in the market. Special event pricing is per hour and can be estimated before the event within one hour usually.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Depending on the job and the client, we would discuss in detail either in person (repeated personal chef clients) or on the phone (for special events). We discuss food likes and dislikes, budget, and menu options. I am flexible and want to make sure the people I am serving are happy -- part of being a personal chef is truly making it PERSONAL. Exactly what the customer wants and needs. Anything's possible and I will do my best to create the meal plan, diet, party or class you want. I'll always have options for you and I'll be upfront and honest if you are looking for something that I'm unfamiliar with or don't have the most experience executing. Of course, I'm always open to learn new things and try to accommodate any requests!
- How did you get started doing this type of work?It started with a love of food. I was joined to my mother's hip in the kitchen from a very young age. (There's even a photo of me around 3 years old covered in flour on my website). I made a career change several years ago and knew I wanted to do something with food. I felt like I could really make a difference and help busy people eat how they want and what they want, hopefully in a healthier way by becoming a personal chef versus entering the restaurant world, so that's the route I went. I definitely feel I chose wisely.
