My family and I were very impressed by Marie. What I love the mostis her level of responsiveness when it came to constructing the menu and all the other details. I was in regular contact with hours until the event. We loved her personality and she was very accommodating in the chaotic environment. The food was amazing and her plating made the food even more appetizing. When we are in town, we will definitely be hiring her for more events.

Details: Special occasion (birthday, anniversary, etc.) • 3 - 5 guests • Dinner • Standard (basic ingredients) • American - casual • American - formal • Italian • Southern • Mexican / Latin American • Mediterranean / Middle Eastern • Barbecue • French • Meal prepared onsite • Only once • My home, venue, etc.
