Personal Chef

I booked The Sofo Spoon to host a private dinner for my husbands birthday. It was our first time hiring a private chef to cook for us and Chef Danielle was AMAZING! Danielle was always so responsive during the process of planning and she was very punctual with time and showed up early as needed to set up and prepare. The quality of the food was amazing and every course was cooked to perfection. Towards the end of the night, Danielle cleared the dining table setup, cleaned the kitchen, scrubbed down my stove and neatly placed all the dirty dishes in the dishwasher. Overall, we had a great experience and we’ll be definitely booking The Sofo Spoon for any future events!

Let's also not forget the food was incredible!!!!! Danielle completely caters the meal to each and every guest and will make any accommodation you need. Can't recommend this enough and look forward to the next time I book with Sofo Spoon!

Chef Danielle made our anniversary dinner so much more special, especially given we are still in a pandemic. She was professional, clean, and provided an amazing meal to my wife and I. I would highly recommend her and her team to anyone thinking of having a privately catered dinner.

    10% administrative fees assessed on all events.

    My first step is to set up a phone call with a client. This allows me to get to know them a bit and take notes on their expectations. From there, we plan the event and menu. All information I sent so we always stay communicating. This ensures a seamless event the day of.
