    Late to the game but wanted to leave a review because even almost a year later we still think about the amazing dinner that Aubrey cooked for us. She went above and beyond what was asked for and everything tasted delicious and what was such an added surprise is just how laid back and great and personable she was. We wanted her to stay all night just to hang out! I would highly recommend her for any personal chef needs you need!

    We hired Aubrey to cater our wedding reception. It was a small, intimate affair in our home, and we wanted a vegetarian, fully-served meal that left our guests full and impressed. I am delighted to say that we got exactly what we wanted. Aubrey created wonderful menu options for us, and we got to choose what sounded the best. Communication was excellent, and Aubrey was responsive to all our needs. On the big day, she arrived on time and produced some of the most delicious, gorgeous food we have ever experienced. She engaged our guests by describing each dish in detail, once it had been served. When she was done, she left the kitchen spotless. We cannot thank her enough for helping to make our special day so wonderful.

    Aubrey was great! We were looking for a caterer and were so happy we chose this private chef instead. Easy to have in our home, perfectly timed meal, full service evening, excellent food.

    Aubrey helped us with our annual Christmas party (for 50 to 60 guests): a buffet which we serve in 3 courses. I prepare a lot of the food ahead of time, but need help during the party to cook the main course and do everything else! Once I had told Aubrey what needed to be done, she took over and did a beautiful job. She artfully created the hors d'Âœuvres platters, later baked the salmon to perfection and made a delicious risotto, made the salad and served the desserts beautifully. Meanwhile, she replenished the drinks, kept up with the trash and took care of everything else. I knew I had a professional in my house. I could relax and enjoy our party. When she left, my kitchen was in order and the food neatly stored in my refrigerator. Aubrey is highly efficient and competent. She's also a calm and delightful person to be with. I will be calling her next Christmas. Thank you so much, Aubrey!

    We hired Aubrey to cook a fancy dinner for a group of 12. We asked her to come up with a menu that would be fun, and she obliged with a great meal (including fried halloumi. Yum!). In addition to the great food, she made nice wine pairing suggestions and left things nice and clean. We would be happy to work with her again.

    Aubrey has been cooking for me for quite a while. I love to cook but didn't have the time and wanted to have healthy easy meals that she provided. When my scheduled became slightly better she has been helpful in doing veggie prep and yummy almond milk which helps me create healthy meals. She is flexible and willing to work with your needs. Thanks Aubrey!

    Aubrey made an incredible meal for a baby shower for 25 people at our home. Everyone was raving about the food. She was easy to communicate with, very available via email, and was willing to alter the menu to suit our needs.

    I hosted a bachelorette party at a home on Whidbey Island and Aubrey was kind enough to sign up for the event and make the trek from Seattle to Whidbey via summer ferry traffic! The food was terrific, fresh, local and well prepared. Aubrey was great at communication and took care of cleaning up after. I would hire her again for another party!

    Aubrey came prepared and created a delicious inspired menu for our 12 person dinner party. I would absolutely recommend her and or hire her again.

    Aubrey, Thank you so much for such a stellar dinner last night. Everyone had a delightful time, and the food was absolutely on point. :) We look forward to the opportunity to work with you again for another event in the future! For anyone considering Aubrey - she was wonderful to work with from start to finish -- menu planning, scheduling, prep, food, service, and cleanup. We hosted a semi-formal dinner party for 12 with a brazenly fresh meat+vegetarian friendly 4-course meal with plenty of options and family-style sharing for everyone. From inventive but simple Syrian walnut spread crostin, to off-the-chain summer stone fruit / summer radish / heirloom tomato salad, to lovely kebabs and toothsome toasty baked falafel -- Aubrey rocket it. :)

    Aubrey is an amazing and talented chef. My husband has been a professional cook in Seattle for 6 years and he was absolutely impressed by Aubrey. Her food combinations are delicious, beautiful, and nourishing. She was willing to work with our schedule and budget and can offer different types of services depending on budget. We hired her to cook meals for our family for one week. She completed all the work in one day at our home and left us with very clear and easy instructions for putting meals together. I think it's a steal having her cook for us compared to eating out - not just the monetary cost, but the comfort of being at home, the beauty and pleasure of eating food that is lovingly made, and the ability to eat things that are good for you. I can't wait to hire her again!

    She appeared right on time and was very friendly. Her pizzabaking skills are wonderful and the four different pizzas we got to make came out amazing. I do not think we would find pizzas in any store would taste close to the ones she made...group lessons are cheaper. thanks Aubrey!

    Aubrey was a dream to work with! Easy to plan and so nice to have her at my event. Everyone loved her food which was fresh and flavorful!

    Aubrey is an outstanding chef! She's reasonably priced and her meals are always delicious and incredibly healthy- a sometimes difficult combination that she manages to execute beautifully with each meal. I appreciate that she welcomes critique and strives to get the flavors just right for your personal tastes. I couldn't recommend her enough.

    Aubrey has been cooking 2 meals a week for our family of 4 for the past 6 months. Her food is healthy and delicious, with good variety, especially plant-based foods. She has made our lives much easier for the mid-week crunch. She communicates well through text and email, and is reliable, trustworthy and tidy. A pleasure to work with, a gem to find!

    Aubrey helped us by preparing food for our holiday cocktail party. She was very flexible and adapted to meet our menu preferences. She has a wonderful personality and was a joy to work with. Food was fantastic! We will certainly ask Aubrey to help us again in the future. Highly recommended!

    Aubrey was great! We had her prepare appetizers for a group of roughly 25 adults. Coordinating the menu with her was so easy, she was on time arriving to our house and had the food out at the beginning of the party--not only that the food was super yummy. We had a lot of compliments on the great taste and beautiful presentation. Would not hesitate to use her again.

    Aubrey prepared a rolling several-hour feast for a gathering of six, celebrating three birthdays, conducted at a waterfront Alki condominium rented for an out of town guest. Aubrey was easy, flexible, and fun to work with in menu planning which needed to meet some eclectic special requests. Aubrey's execution was spot-on. Every dish showed skill. My guests all loved the food. Aubrey delivered precisely what she agreed to do. This experience would have been even more positive if Aubrey had cleaned up as completely as possible before she left.

    Thanks for the feedback, Janice. It is a good reminder for me to discuss expectations of cleaning more thoroughly ahead of time. I am happy to help with clearing and cleaning service/plate ware if it is requested and agreed upon prior to the event, otherwise I typically just take care of the cookware/kitchen. I'm very happy to hear that your guests loved the experience! It was such a special way to celebrate all three birthdays!

    Aubrey is a great teacher and great chef! She taught everyone valuable kitchen and knife skills during an outstanding sushi roll class for 3 people. After the class she served a meal for 6. Aubrey is very personal and knowledgeable chef.

    So much fun! We hired Aubrey to teach a small group of us how to make a fun and delicious meal as a fun surprise for my sister who is getting married... She not only was a great teacher with great recipes but also just an easy going personality which made everything even more enjoyable!
