Introduction: A trained nutritionist and health chef, bringing years of experience with French-Canadian influenced Nouvelle-American cuisine, Erika Laurion variously cooks, coaches and consults with unbridled enthusiasm. She has a graduate level education in nutrition and isn’t distracted by food fads du jour, though she easily accommodates specialty diets. She can work anywhere: in your home or hers, on land or water, stateside or overseas. Chef Erika is recognized for her curation of eco-resort menus, as well as the design of nutritious cuisine for exclusive wellness retreats. Her vast experience, combined with an easygoing and flexible personality, enables Erika to integrate with a wide range of clients. She is both discreet and reliable - someone you can trust with your home and guests. Invite Erika to do one on one teaching as you strive to adopt healthy eating habits, or enlist her to take charge of an elaborate dinner party. Ask her to stock up your fridge with meals for the week, or prepare special meals tailored to dietary necessity. She will engage your creativity as you team up to pursue your culinary dreams.

Personal Chef

I’m not one to write reviews but I feel compelled to given my overwhelmingly positive experience with Erika. I hired Erika to prepare a dinner for 16 people and a lunch the subsequent day for 30 people. Simply put, my whole experience with her was terrific. The food as well as her professionalism and punctuality exceeded my expectations and I will definitely be hiring her for my next event.

Private Cooking Lessons

Chef Erika developed menu options to meet the varied dietary needs of my guests and smoothly blended all the differing aspects together to create a delicious and memorable event for my husband's birthday. Her suggestions were perfect for the crowd and the dinner was amazing. She also blended the instructional aspects of the preparation into the conversation with our guests so the evening felt natural and relaxed. I'll definitely be calling upon her again!

Erika was delightful! Her food was of the highest quality, tasted fantastic and was very creative. She was able to cater to the people in our group with specific dietary needs without shortchanging those without challenges. Erika was easy to work with and we'd gladly hire her again.

Chef Erika is very easy to work with. She took the time to understand our family’s needs and collaborated with us to come up with the right menus. The food is delicious, healthy, and more than met our expectations.

Chef Erika was a phenomenal asset for our 13 person dinner party. She cooked quickly and efficiently, we barely even knew she was there. The group was most impressed with her ability to not only cook healthy and delicious food, but accomdatefor a variety of dietary restrictions. She is the only chef we plan to use in the future for our private events and meal prep. A true professional who takes pride in her work. Thank you Erika!

FAQs

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

    No, I do not have a standard pricing as it depends of too many things but my pricing does include the following: All full meal services include - Menu Planning & Recipe Research - Grocery Shopping - Meal Preparation - Clean up! - Ongoing Communication and Support

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

    We first meet to discuss your needs so that I can discover your favorite foods and dietary restrictions. I will make some suggestions and we will decide on the menu of your choice. My goal will always be to show you that healthy never tasted so good….and that healthy has a place for decadence on occasions... On the day of service, I shop for fresh quality ingredients and bring them to your home. All meals are prepared on-site and classes given in your own kitchen.

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

    I was born in a family of foodies and I had the opportunity to live in Europe as a child. Both of my parents are great chefs and all my siblings love the challenge of making the best meal and trying new recipes. Although we were part of different gastronomy clubs we mostly gave dinner parties on a regular basis so cooking for me has become natural.
