  • Chef Loly

    (1 reviews)

    I'm a personal chef who specializes in Latin and Spanish modern cuisine. I have tremendous passion for food. In the last few years, I spend a lot of time developing recipes, adding a modern twist and a healthy kick. I know it is difficult nowadays to keep a balance at home from cooking, work and family, so leave the kitchen to me, and I will do all the cooking for a whole week, for a party of six or for a catering event. Today, my focus is on modern Latin and Spanish cuisine. I love to create a wonderful atmosphere and awake people's senses with my dishes.

Thumbtack Spotlight

Judd Faircloth

Invite a holistic nutrition certified chef to cook you dinner and you will experience that eating healthy food is fun! Amidst the copious dietary regimen and recipes flooding social media and advertisements, Judd Faircloth wants to influence his clients to start their fitness journey with nourishing their body with health-giving food.

My goal is to empower and educate clients to make optimal daily choices for good health.

He is among the fitness chefs who passed the standards of Mimi Kirks. Judd helped cook for her during her 75th birth anniversary. It was indeed one highlight in his career that testifies his credibility as a health coach and chef.

The most effective strategy to keep clients happy is to listen. I listen to them. They all know what they want. They just don't know how to get there sometimes. So listening and communicating with them is the key.

You can always indulge your palates while embarking on the fitness voyage. Ask Judd Faircloth, and he will show you how.

    David was incredible! He single handedly cooked for me and my prarty of 17 folks at a mountain lodge in Asheville. He was prompt, and paid meticulous attention to our wants. He cooked a well rounded meal which included salad (with homemade dressings), steak (cooked perfectly by the way), snapper, vegetables, and dinner rolls. Our party had several food allergies and he was more than willing to make modifications to accommodate our needs. Her was awesome, period!

    Courtney was awesome!! She fed 16 of us having a friends reunion at a rental lodge. The food tasted delicious, from the first course through dessert. She was both knowledgeable and entertaining to guests of all ages. We particularly enjoyed how she made desserts with the 8 kids in a separate room so the adults could enjoy the delicious meal she had prepared. She went above and beyond and we highly recommend her.
