I contacted Alyse about in-home cooking for a special occasion and throughout the initial consultations whether it was via email, text, or voice, she was always prompt, clear, and had great follow through. We planned the surprise event for a group of ten people and when a last-minute change occurred, she easily accommodated a menu for three of the ten individuals who didn't eat seafood. For a group this size, she brought some help, and things went off without a hitch! Alyse was great with the meal planning, cost estimation, shopping, preparation, cooking, and post event clean-up.
She started with homemade garlic biscuits and a herb butter that were marvelous! This served as a bit of an appetizer while the meal was being prepared. The first course was shrimp and grits, the second course was a Seafood Etouffee, and for desert, a Vanilla Bean Creme Brulee paired with Bourbon and Pecan Ice Cream. SLURP!!
We really enjoyed the conversations with her and she and her assistant made the evening very memorable, certainly enjoyable, and tasty !
In case you're asking yourself the critical tell-tale question, Would he hire her again?, The answer is a resounding yes!
