Incredible! We hired Rowena as our personal chef for my bachelorette party. We had a guest list of 15. Rowena showed up on time, had a beautiful table presentation, prepared an incredible 4-course meal, and stayed to clean and put away all the dishes after running the dishwasher. Her food is DELICIOUS! She customized a menu just for us. I notified her of several food allergies, including onions, and her menu worked for everyone. I requested a surf-n-turf menu that wasn't going to leave us needing a nap. Every single steak was perfectly cooked; you could cut them with a butter knife! I also told Rowena that my favorite dessert is tres leches, and she legit makes the world's BEST! I was absolutely blown away by Rowena's service. Everyone was raving about her and her dinner all night. If you're looking for a personal chef for your event, I highly highly highly recommend Verdis! Thank you for everything, Rowena! You are a gem!Mar 2, 2020Verified
Rowena was fast on replying on this website, got us a quote and invoice almost as soon as prompted, and showed up right on time. The food she cooked was beautiful and delicious. Her dishes were way fancier than we needed, it felt great! We really appreciate having Rowena help us appreciate our employees. Thank you, Verdis Personal Chef and Catering!!Nov 27, 2019
Rowena is an extremely high end chef with great taste. She really enhanced the original menu that I suggested and she was great to work with. I would love to have her back.Feb 10, 2020Verified
I was unable to attend the dinner due to a family emergency BUT the girls said it was AMAZING! They loved the food and the chef. They were so happy with the cost and the quality. Thank you again for taking care of my friends!Jan 10, 2020Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Very Reasonable.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I First determine what type of cuisine and what type of event they are planing, whether family comfort food affair or for plated and serve 5 Star dining experience. Following that there is a menu consultation with the customer to learn their likes and dislikes. I then take their desire and ideas and develop a menu for them,or cook their specific request.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?After majoring in marketing at the University of the East (manila) and immigrating to the U.S., I quickly realized I must do what i love, Food. I then completed a 2 year program at the Culinary School of Fort Worth and a course in French Bread and Pastry at Paris Le Cordon Bleu. I have worked for some very accomplished chefs and caterers well over a decade.
