We had a fantastic dinner experience with Christine as our Chef! She provided an evening family meal for 8 adults and 3 children to celebrate retirement. Appetizers, dinner and dessert were provided. Not only was dinner delicious, but Christine was kind, competent, efficient, and she left our kitchen sparkling. We would most definitely hire her again for a future event.

We booked Jason Robertson to serve a gourmet meal to us and our four grown children and their spouses - as a Christmas gift to our children. It was a night for us adults to talk and relax away from the 10 grandchildren that make extended conversation challenging. It was just what we hoped for. Jason and his assistant, Tyson, came at 5, set up and, starting at 6, serving us 5 of the most delicious courses- one presented more beautifully than the last. The food was fantastic, ranging from an incredible salad to duck to sea bass to risotto and beyond. It all was delicious and in just the right proportions. Jason and Tyson were informative but not intrusive and, by the time they left, my kitchen looked sparkling clean. One last note of praise to Jason. He had to create a menu that didn't have dairy, gluten, cilantro or almonds. That didn't even slow him down. He delivered a meal that is better than I have had in gourmet restaurants minus waiting for a table and background noise and valet parking. Loved it!

Jill taught me that cooking from scratch was very easy and so much more rewarding than pre-packaged food. I was very interested in homemade sauces and dressings. She taught me the basics and showed me how to elaborate. I made Eggs Benedict with a hollandaise sauce that was out of this world. We also made from scratch an enchilada sauce. I highly recommend Jill. She is very passionate about her work and a very skilled chef.

I've eaten everything from casual family meals and snacks to gourmet dinners and desserts from this wonderful woman's kitchen. Mandy has a real passion and gift with food. When she cooks or bakes for you it doesnt just taste good, it nourishes and satisfies your soul. She is hard working, creative, honest, professional and a perfectionist! What she doesn't know about food isn't worth knowing! Hire her, you won't regret it.

We have hired Chef Marci on several occasions, for events ranging in style from formal dinners for 12 to family picnics for fifty. On every occasion, her food has been delicious, beautifully presented and creative. Her demeanor is friendly and professional, and she made the selection process simple. For the service she provides, her fees are completely reasonable. I would recommend her for any occasion that requires the services of a private chef.

Sue is an excellent chef and cook. When she caters an event she is professional and friendly. The pizza's we order for our garlic harvest crew are always excellent and careful attention is paid to ingredients (which I am pretty picky about). Sue is also adaptable. I know when I first knew her she sometimes used ingredients I was not very interested in but she has gleaned so much experience cooking at co-ops and local and organic food restaurants, that she knows how to cook with everything our local foodshed has to offer.

Looking for top quality food? Look here! I'm a licensed personal chef from the Culinary Business Academy in AZ. I am also a veteran of the US Army. I have skill sets in just about every ethnic background. I specialize on fresh local products when avail with low sodium and health consciousness mindset on every meal. I like to maximize flavor the natural way with key ingredients prepared to my meticulous standard. I need to interview you and whoever will be eating my food to determine your flavor profile as well as the things you like and want to see with frequency and things you dislike and never want to see. I tailor this information into a menu you get to approve prior to the day of cooking. I guarantee your sanctification and will replace any item you feel is not to your standard. In return, I need information about what didn't work with that particular dish, and why you didn't like it. I use this information on future meals so as not to make the same error for you again. This is such an easy venture for you or your loved ones. Think of getting a gift certificate that gives top-quality meals guaranteed they will like it. Santa approves when he eats my chocolate/white chocolate chip cookie as big as your hand. Here are a few thoughts to intrigue you pallet: * lemon and herb butter pan sauteed fresh halibut * garlic grilled chicken kabobs * any type of sushi made within a few hours of eating it on your plate soon * rib eye Oscar (fresh rib eye cooked to your preferred temperature topped with Alaskan king crab and garlic grilled asparagus drizzled with fresh home made Bearnaise sauce) * football game apps of all sorts, made fresh and delivered at the time of your specification Company parties of any size, I am fully capable of handling. I use a commercial kitchen in Mendota Heights close to the MSP airport to cook and prepare all of my food and has a spotless record with the FDA. I will never serve you or your loved ones something I wouldn't eat myself, and I am a food snob. What are you waiting for? Get in contact with me ASAP! Smiles.
