Introduction: My name is Suzanne Nicholas, and I've been the Chef/Owner of a personal chef business for over nine years. I am a creative, versatile, self-trained chef, skilled in the use of whole-foods, natural ingredients to prepare tasty, nutritious meals. I have expertise in many different cuisines (I.e. Mediterranean, Italian, Korean, Indian, etc), and am particularly skilled in working with clients on special diets. I have an abundance of ideas for creative, whole food substitutions to make special diet meals appealing and delicious! I love to cook, and I particularly love to teach... I have taught cooking classes with many of my personal chef clients over the years, and am starting to make teaching a focus of my work. I am personable and approachable, and am skilled at working with clients to identify their cooking goals and meet them in a sustainable way. I'm a dedicated partner in my work, and stay with my clients until they feel confident in their new cooking skills!

The food Suzanne presented for our luncheon was delicious, beautifully displayed, and arrived on time in excellent condition. It was a pleasure to communicate with Suzanne whether by email or by phone. She is a very talented, creative, and professional caterer.

Where do I begin. I was planning for a house warming event (BBQ style) for a group of 40 people so I submitted a request for catering on Thumbtack. I was a little worried that my limited budget would be a problem to work with any caterer but still submitted my request. I immediately heard back from Suzanne and a couple of other caterers. The other caterers I heard back from were not willing to adjust the menu to fit my budget. Suzanne was so accommodating and willing to customize my menu to stay and work within my budget. She communicated with me until the day of the event asking me about details and any requests I had. She even incorporated spices from my native country. She took the time and effort to learn about a special dish from Ethiopia and made it with perfection. My guests were raving about her food the entire night saying how delicious and flavorful it was. I would hire Suzanne for other events and would recommend her service to everyone I know. It was such a pleasure to work with Suzanne!

We hired Suzanne at Food Matters to cater a large formal Ladies' Tea (80 guests). She was a sheer joy to work with, from start to finish! Suzanne was very easy to work with as we went through the menu selection process, even providing a tasting for our Tea Team (we were thrilled)! Her professionalism and food safety knowledge was so welcome. We just loved having her around and all of our Tea guests have raved and raved about the food (even sending hand written notes to us). Suzanne's food was so delicious.....and she made the savory side of the Tea so interesting and varied (we supplied dessert, which had a hard time following her food!). Lastly, Suzanne's pricing is beyond reasonable. Any of us would and will use her catering services again. In fact, several guests came into the kitchen just after the event to meet her and to ask for her cards.

Suzanne is an outstanding chef and great to work with. She delivered our first week of vegan dinners and they were outstanding. Her food is delicious, creative and filling.

Had Informal buffet-style meal of lasagna, salad, and desserts. Suzanne Nicholas prepared the food, delivered it, and set it up. Food was delicious. Suzanne was always pleasant and gracious in her designs with me. I would definitely recommend her to other folks. Also, her prices were very reasonable.
