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 for events. In addition, 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.

Deb S.

Personal Chef

Radka was absolutely top notch. She and I communicated constantly as we planned a 30th birthday dinner for my son. She offered delicious suggestions for a menu, and came prepared with great ingredients and cooking supplies for optimal outcomes. My kitchen was spotless when she left. She was delightful and passionate about her work.

Deb, It was so nice meeting you and your family and cooking for Andrew’s birthday! You got me all set up in your beautiful kitchen. I felt like at home. Hope to cook for you again in the future!

That is so sweet! It was my pleasure to cater both your birthday and Super Bowl parties! I’ll be happy to do that again.

Radka was super accommodating. She made excellent menu recommendations and everything was delicious. Some of us were having Chicken Tikka masala for the first time and will most certainly be having it again! Let’s hope it tastes like Radka’s. :) The salad was perfect and she even made us all perfect mini lava cakes. She was super pleasant throughout every interaction. Highly recommended!!!! Next time I host an event like this, I would absolutely choose Radka.

Nia, Thank you so much! It was such a pleasure to cook for your sisters and cousins and help make your sister’s 30th birthday special. I will be happy to make another meal for you in the future. And I’d love to make Greek grape leaves with your family recipe! Best, Radka
