Julie was very professional from planning to execution. Great communication before the event. This was a present to my husband for Christmas. A private cooking class for 2 in our home. Julie taught and served a fabulous flavorful 5 course Indian meal. We will definitely do this again! She brought all ingredients. She used our cookware and gadgets so we could reproduce the meal without feeling we had to buy any new kitchenware. So happy!
Colby Paige Catering, headed by the very talented Chef Gilbert Dawes provided an outstanding experience for our wedding. We had 200 guests and the menu and service were professional and absolutely delicious! We had a variety of appetizers and the dinner choices were fabulous. Chef Gil met with us prior to the wedding and together we worked out a menu and price. Chef graciously provided us with a tasting and we knew he was the man! Chef Gil and his staff were polite, on time, clean, and on point! Thank you Colby Paige Catering for making our wedding (at the Norfolk Masonic Temple) a fabulous affair!!! W & T Hughes Sept. 2014
Saeed gift for the culinary arts has been "kissed" by his Grandmother. I'm convinced that she passed her gift on to him (smile). Saeed's perfect seasoning and his artful presentation of each dish delight ed my taste buds and make my heart smile. I enjoyed every bite of the Fish Tacos. The Turkey Hamburger he serves up is one of the best I have ever tasted. Seriously! Saeed loves to cook and you will experience that love in the food he prepares..... Outstanding!
I enjoyed his cooking and his pleasant presentation. Can't wait to see what he brings out next.
Jennel has cooked for me many times and I would describe the experience as nothing short of outstanding each and every time. Jennel has a wonderful flair with food and not only does it always taste amazing and is seasoned to perfection, but every dish is visually stunning and a piece of art unto itself. Jennel is extremely gracious, hyper organized and my kitchen was left spotless every time she worked her magic. I would highly recommend Jennel for any occasion and look forward to the next time I can have her back to cook for my next event.
Chef Tim came to my house and taught my 13 yr old daughter (and myself, my mother and sister in law) how to make homemade pasta and chicken piccata. He was patient, gave great tips and made the whole experience wonderful.
Just imagine having a head chef show up in your kitchen, what a treat. My wife and I were looking for something different and exciting for our anniversary. We knew exactly what we were looking for; delicious food, special treatment and a high level of service. We obtained the services of a premier personal chef. My wife and I had a wonderful evening at home thanks to Chef Gray. He brought all the food and ingredients, all the pots, pans and cooking utensils, beautiful table setting and glassware. Chef Gray took over my kitchen and prepared us a wonderful three course meal. He was the shining example of a highly trained professional chef. He transformed our dining room into a "Five Star Restaurant" with his personalized and attentive service. Chef Gray is a great listener and takes your dietary restrictions into consideration to customize your meal. He took care of everything, assisted with the menu, cooked for us, provided exceptional service and cleaned up the entire kitchen. Thank you Chef Gray for making our anniversary so uniquely special.
We loved having Kathi's help with our evening meals while my husband was deployed. She helped make our meal plans and organize the grocery needs, she prepped and cooked all meals from start to finish and left my kitchen spotless. She even modified her dishes to meet my vegan/vegetarian lifestyle. She helped us find kid-friendly meal ideas and always made sure they were healthy and varied. We enjoyed all the food she prepared for us and already miss her very much!
I hired Brittany and Rashima to cater a weekend spent at a lakehouse with about 30 friends. She provided a buffet dinner and breakfast. Our weekend was great! Her baked beans are to die for! I'll admit, my friends were a bit demanding but she kept professional and even picked up after us the entire weekend. She and Rashima make a great team.
Rather than focusing on calories and nutrients alone, my training allows me to help you achieve your goals through real, sustainable, "whole being" health. While what you eat is an important part of your health, it's not the only important part! I also recognize that there is no one perfect diet for everyone. We need to find a way of eating that works for your body and your life. All the details of how I work are on my website. Check it out and you can even schedule with me through there!
I am a mother who loves the kitchen, and I am looking forward to showing you how fun cooking can be. Contact me for an unforgettable experience! Cooking can be fun and adventurous. Start with an idea and turn that idea into an amazing creation. My pricing is reasonable, because I believe that sharing my gift shouldn't cost an arm and a leg! If you want to learn how to make some delicious meals or just need someone to make dinner for you, I am your gal! I have also just recently started creating a package that will allow you to request dinner for a whole week or just a few days a week. I cook and deliver your dinners Sunday night, and you just have to reheat, easy as a pie!
If you're interested in learning some cool tricks and tips that can only be learned on the job, I'm your guy! With anything I pick up in the kitchen, I'm always interested in sharing with others. Everybody should know at least a little something about cooking. I am qualified in ServeSafe as well, so if there are any sanitation questions, I will be able to answer those as well. I have been trained in knife cuts, plating, sauce creation, protein fabrication, baking, breakfast foods, sandwich building and much more! If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
