I highly recommend Chef Michelle! She was wonderful to work with leading up to our dinner. She came up with a great menu and was receptive to adjusting for dietary needs and preferences. She was very professional, the food was outstanding, and everything was just perfect for our dinner. Definitely call Chef Michelle for your next event!

Mika was hands-down the most professional personal chef I have ever worked with. Her communication was amazing, and she worked around our schedule which helped so much! She she also worked with all our different dietary restrictions, and made sure everyone was satisfied the whole time. Her food was absolutely incredible, and I will be bragging about her to Literally anyone who’s willing to listen! Learning about her passion for not only cooking, but teaching was so special! She’s so down to earth, and I will be hiring her for all future Santa Fe events!
