Way back in 2011 or 2012, when life was extremely busy, we had been married over 20 years and my cooking was not getting any more creative (!), my husband "gave me" Heather one night a week as my Christmas present. It was the greatest gift our entire family has ever received! She is the perfect personal chef. When we are trying to cut down on calories, eat in a healthy way -- she has delicious, creative and innovative ways to get us fresh and local food. When we are in the mood to splurge and eat like kings and queens, she cooks us gourmet spreads with the professional skills of a Michelin start chef. She has cooked Japanese, French, Italian, Spanish, Indian, Mexican, California American, Chinese, you name it... for us and everything is delicious, fresh, local (when possible) and carefully prepared. She will cook and leave while you eat, cook and stay/clean up or even drop off you night's meal....whatever your time allows. She is flexible, easy-going, and positive. She has gone from cooking while our middle schooler did homework with her at the kitchen counter to cooking Christmas dinner for our extended family; from managing hors d'oeuvres and drinks at a reception to catering a formal dinner party for 25; from filling up two coolers of food for our family beach week to teaching me how to make certain dishes. She can do it all. Still not convinced? The most important thing about Heather is that she is a good person -- easy to have in your house, trustworthy, honest and supportive. Give yourself a present and add her to your life!

Heather De Nittis catered an event in my home and did an excellent job! She met with me to discuss the theme of the event and ensure she planned around my needs. On the evening of the event, Heather created a beautiful tablescape with wonderful food presentation, and provides my guests with detailed explanations of each dish. Everyone loved her food, and my overall experience was excellent. I recommend her highly, and one of the guests at my party was so impressed that she has hired Heather for an event of her own.

Chef Heather has been preparing our family meals for over a year now. Her food is delicious, she is always accommodating and a pleasure to work with! It is such a relief not to worry about what's for dinner every night.
