Nicole J.

’ve known Chef Gail for a few years now. She first catered my house warming party. I was searching for culture infused and flavorful food for my picky family members and friends. As they don’t just eat anybody’s food and I would typically cook myself. I was pleasantly surprised and very impressed by Chef Gail. She exceeded my expectations and won over me and all of my guests. The food was so full of flavor and beautifully presented. Chef paid attention to every detail and went above and beyond to ensure that me and my guests were completely satisfied. I later used Chef Gail’s prepared meals service. Again, so delicious and full of flavor. She introduced me to some tasty options that I’m not sure I would have even considered trying. Also, Chef was very accommodating of my dietary concerns and restrictions. For these reasons and many more, I highly recommend Chef Gail’s services. In addition to her exquisitely prepared flavorful cuisine she’s a genuinely warm and caring person. Chef takes her food and business seriously and it shows in everything that she does.

Dear Katherine, It was a pleasure working with you. You were wonderful and easy to work with and I was so happy that you were open to trying some of the meals I created for you. I look forward to working with you again. Thank you for all the lovely compliments. I really enjoy working with my clients, and I do make it a bit personal because I think it is important to engage with each client to satisfy his/her needs. My best regards, Chef Gail

Chef Gail provided a personal chef experience for my sisters 50th birthday. Her service, food, personality, professionalismeverything about her and her sous-chef was exceptional. I will definitely be calling her for other events in the future. I am also going to call on her for her meal prep services as soon as my budget allows!

In addition to being a fine professional Chef Gail is a superb chef. I have had the great pleasure of hiring her for her culinary skills for small dinner parties, large large dinner parties at my home and she prepares meals to my specification privately. My guests consistently rave to the taste of her culinary success. Her cuisine is always fresh, delicious, and flavorful and she uses the finest ingredients. I highly recommend her to whoever may be contemplating hiring her for an event.

Kerri P.

My husband and I have worked with Chef Gail several times over the past few years. We would emphatically recommend her for home dinner parties (we've had 12-40 people). Her menu ideas are creative and attentive to our preferences. Her prices are reasonable, and every bite is simply amazing. She is professional and prompt. My favorites include her sliders, chicken and waffles, filet mignon, and any of her seafood.

The food and packaging were excellent quality and you could tell Chef Gail put time into all of it. She was very professional during all encounters. She also responded very quickly to all inquiries. Will definitely order again!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My pricing is set as stated but I have worked with clients in the past to provide service that fits within their budget.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    After I make contact with the customer, and he/she decides to work with me, I get to know them, their likes/dislikes, what his or her expectations are for the event or service, and then work the client to make sure they know what to expect. If there are an issues (i.e.. unavailability of an item that will affect the menu) I reach out and offer a comparable substitute or replacement for the item. I have only had to do this once, and the client was even more satisfied with the replacement we agreed on.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have a Bachelor of Science in Culinary Management from an accredited Culinary School. I did my externship training at the Ritz Carlton, Pentagon City, and at the InterContinental Hotel, London, UK. I was also the Protocol and Event Manager for one of the Offices within the American Embassy in Windhoek, Namibia; and London, UK.
