Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: I am a passionate cook with a hospitality degree. I took culinary and baking classes in college. I cooked for families throughout college, bartended in NYC, and started writing a food blog. I run my own business doing daily meal prep for busy clients and catering events. I also hold a WSET Level 2 Wine Award and offer wine & food pairing dinner option. In addition to my own business, I work for a hospitality group. All I do is cook, bake, blog about food, and eat out to be inspired. I am a culinary volunteer at the NYC Wine and Food Festival and Napa Valley festival. I specialize in Eastern European cooking but I love to make dishes of other countries as well. My favorite cuisine is Mid-Eastern. I hold a NYS Food Handler’s License and SafeServ certification. I am also a TIPS-certified bartender.

We cannot say enough about Radka. She was absolutely amazing, the food was some of the best we have had. She served a 20 person 60th birthday party, was beyond accommodating to all our requests, was a spectacular chef, recommended the most amazing wine pairings to complement the menu and seriously went above and beyond. We will for sure be using her again and would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for a chef! Thank you so so much Radka!

Personal Chef

Chef Radka was wonderful. Very personable and easy to work with. The food was delicious, from the goat cheese, pistachio and warm date salad, Sicilian steak, grilled to perfection for me. For some of my guest it was a little rare so she gladly grilled it a little more for them. To the chocolate souffle for dessert. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed dinner. Chef Radka did all the shopping, cooking and clean up and I was able to enjoy my birthday dinner with my friends. I highly recommend her. Thanks again Chef Radka.

I couldn’t say enough great thing about Radka! She was so personable and an even better chef! We hired her to cook for a party of 14 and boy, did she deliver! We had an amazing meal and a great time! Our dinner wouldn’t have been the same without Radka! 5/5 stars without a doubt!
