Chef Jen created a memorable 40th birthday dinner party. She was collaborative, responsive and professional throughout the planning process. The birthday girl was so happy!

Chef Jen was an absolute rockstar for the surprise birthday dinner hosted for my wife in our home. Not only did she take the time to craft a menu to fit a variety of dietary and culinary tastes (both over the phone and via email), she also was incredibly flexible in helping plan arrival times to ensure the surprise went off without a hitch! Chef Jen could not have been more of a professional during a challenging time. Arriving punctually, wearing a mask and respecting everyone's comfort-level, cooking a delicious meal (that we enjoyed for days after with the few leftovers available), and leaving the kitchen spotless. She had a great balance of knowing when to engage with the group, as well as give them space and let them eat and enjoy each other's company. I'd absolutely welcome Chef Jen into my home again and am chomping at the bit for the next opportunity to do so. I can't thank her enough for making the dinner and evening an unforgettable one for my wife and her friends!!

Erik, My hand is over my heart in gratitude for your words, I really appreciate the acknowledgement and for letting me know that I contributed to an enjoyable evening. Experiencing true delightful surprises as an adult is such a special thing. You were a delight and joy to plan with and the friends in your circle were absolute gems. I look forward to staying in touch. Thank you again.

Chef Jen asked us about we like/don't like, can eat/cannot eat, etc. The result was a delicious combination of seafood and vegetables. All four courses were creative and delicious. For the quality of the food served, we thought the dinner was also a good value.

Hire Immediately!!! Look no further, Chef Jen's made my Wife's Birthday Dinner one that we will never forget. From the moment I contacted her quick response was awesome. Her attention to detail as we discussed the menu, and her great recommendations of different food pairings. When she arrived she was punctual, and was so friendly as she prepared the dinner, talking about nutrition as she has a degree in Nutrition. All my guests Loved the Food, and Chef Jen. Would definitely recommend, I will be hiring her again for a New Years Eve dinner party. Thank you again Chef Jen!!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Pricing for special occasions is in line or below average personal chef rates. I tend to select more complex recipes which require added time for sauces made with fresh herbs and marinades but I am generous with the time I spend. The majority of my clients get more than what they pay for.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I like to conduct an initial phone call to learn about the special occasion, favorite foods and cuisines, and possibly allergies if a meal is requested. I like to design a menu based on what the participants will feel excited about. If I am planning weekly meals, I seek to understand how the family typically eats and what types of foods work well for each family member.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I am a certified nutritionist and personal chef with a background as an artist. I trained at the Nutrition Therapy Institute in Denver, CO and hold the title of Certified Nutrition Therapy Practitioner. I have led cooking demonstrations and prepared meals for small and large groups of people. I lead workshops on Food Energetics. I have been an artist my whole life and I specialized as a muralist for many years. I now combine my love for colors of paint and fabrics with my love of the color of fresh produce and plated foods.
