Introduction: My services provide immeasurable value to my clients. I am here to make my client's lives less stressful, more time rich and inherently better by feeding them wholesome, delicious foods made with care. I believe that being a personal chef is more than cooking excellent food; for that reason I take great care in providing excellent customer service, effective communication, punctuality, straightforward pricing and obsessive attention to detail. The thing I love most about being a personal chef is diversity of work. One day I may be driving a boat across a lake to grocery shop for a private client and their 20 friends. The next week I'm dropping off meals for a busy couple with a new baby on the way. The week after that I'm cooking for a high school basketball team so they can carb-load before a game! On my quiet days I'm updating my website, hiring new chefs, working on taxes, marketing and more. Everyday is a new adventure.

Sam S.

Wedding and Event Catering

This is the second time I have hired Bonnie in the last year and she's THE BEST I've worked with. She catered our large BBQ/dinner party and grilled unbelievable ribs and made side dishes that all the guests were raving about. I'm pretty sure she ran out of business cards at the end because everyone kept asking her for her contact info. Would DEFINITELY recommend without hesitation. I now have her contact info saved in my phone as she is my go-to caterer for future events.

My experience with Bonnie was great. She worked closely with me to craft the perfect menu for my event, was responsive, arrived on time and had a delish spread that folks raved about! I would highly recommend.

Personal Chef (Ongoing)

She is the best thing that happened to my wife and I. I play professional football and she makes life easier by understanding why I need to keep my body functioning at a high level. She adjusted to my needs because of the restrictions I have with my diet. She's so easy to deal with . And she just had cater for my family function where I had 30 plus people! She's awesome I recommend her!

Personal Chef

Bonnie was incredible and I would highly recommend her for anything from a family dinner to a large corporate dinner party. She helped craft the perfect menu and was very open to feedback and suggestions. She was organized, on-time, clean and offered great insight into each of the prepared dishes and paired wines. By the time the event was over every dish was washed and everything was put back in its proper place. The next time you need private chef services don't hesitate to hire Bonnie. You won't be disappointed.
