We hired Natalie to cater a two family Super Bowl Party. She was an absolute pleasure to work with and did a great job! The food was the perfect combination of healthy and fun. I would definitely recommend her!

Overall our experience with Chef Natalie was wonderful! The food was of high quality and everyone really enjoyed the dishes. She was great at suggesting items that were both unique in style and crowd pleasers, and everyone raves about the food. Her response time was fabulous. She came to the house - which was over an hour drive for her - to help us set up, and was very helpful! The only reason I am not giving five stars is because I felt that the cost was misrepresented up front, as her initial message said she could cover food costs for $30-35 per person. After she proposed menu options (including appetizers) and we decided what we wanted, I saw that the appetizers were an additional cost. We went through with it, as it was a special family occasion, but I would have preferred knowing the real cost up front before getting excited about a menu, only to learn it would be more expensive than I expected. That being said, I’d definitely be a repeat customer. Thanks for making the event a special one!!

Natalie was absolutely amazing and I will certainly book her for future events. Not only was the food delicious - she really worked with me to figure out what would be best for me and my guests. And an amazing value! I would have paid twice the cost to get as amazing an experience at a restaurant. Highly recommended!

Natalie put so much thought into her menu for my event .Her pairing and selection for every course was perfection and delicious. I have used her for most of my dinner parties and will continue to do so.
