Introduction: Passion! I love doing what I do. Eating creates an opportunity to share and connect, to laugh and build each other up, and to create a moment which you can look back upon and get that little grin of a great past memory! Creating every menu for every event so you're not just ordering off a set menu as everyone nowadays has their own idea of what a great meal is. I hand design all menus and dress up the tables so its not just a table with food on it. I love using what I have learned from my southern grandma who grew everything fresh to my other side being Italian. Traveled around the world and US and have learned so much from those who spent their lives cooking, chefs, and even those who had 1 secret family recipe. With my Fine Arts background, I get to share in your moments in life whether its business to say thank you or increase that bottom line or family special occasions. Aren't I lucky!!!! HAHAHAHA. Plus for the few clients that let me go wild and allow me to have total control over the menu after figuring out the group then I hope you're prepared to eat because it is a party in the kitchen for me, and that Italian side just loves lots of great tasty food ;)

Personal Chef

Helen was great! We had a bunch of big boys together for a bachelor party and we still managed to have leftovers, even though the food was absolutely delicious. She has recipes that are not standard and very good! Highly recommend.

Event Catering (Buffet)

I went with Aunty Helen's Kitchen for my baby shower and I must say everything was absolutely amazing. She really went above and beyond to make this day special for my boyfriend and I. The food was absolutely amazing, our guests are stil raving about everything. Her barque chicken was spectacular and her mini cakes were amazing!!! The entire experience was the perfect mix of professional and personal that really made everything work. I feel like we really truly made a friend with Helen, not just a caterer for our event. I will work with Helen again and again over anyone else! I highly recommend this company for any event!

FAQs

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

    NOTE - FOR PRIVATE CHEF - Our Pricing starts at $75. per person and is nonnegotiable. Pricing - WELL THIS JUST DEPENDS ON WHAT YOU REALLY WANT! We use quality ingredients so you get a wonderful tasty meal for your party because everyone remembers a great party by the food!!! We do not offer discounts and pricing does not include tax.

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

    First step is to talk so we can figure out the best menu for you. We arent just order off the menu because I can adjust recipes. Now if you dont want a special menu thats ok we can still give you wonderful choices off of our basic menu. I need to know how many women and men. We eat differently so why not include something for everyone. How many? What's your budget? Is there something you want on your menu? Let me know if you don't have time and just want me to create a casual or high end menu! Understand high end menu means it's going to be more expensive because your talking seafood and steak! I just need to know does anyone have allergies and if not thats ok too... I'll just create a more detailed menu so if someone has certain main allergies they'll know what to eat...

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

    I have traveled around the world and US. I have taken classes from chefs, moms, grandmas, grandpas and anyone who had something to share. The secret of great food is about learning all the secrets. Every great chef has a book of shortcuts and secrets they use to make their dishes just a bit better!!! My one grandmother was a southern farmer and my other side was Italian. I was cooking and learning before I could walk.
