    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!

  • 5/5 stars

    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 prepared delicious healthy meals for our family one night a week this past summer. She was happy to work with our schedule and budget. It was always a delight to come home to her delicious meals after school/work. She provided our family a night off to relax and enjoy a healthy meal AT HOME! I would highly recommend her to any busy family.

    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!

  • 5/5 stars Event Catering (Full Service) Verified Review

    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.

    Aubrey J. from Drum Beets | Aubrey Jenkins replied to this review on November 14, 2014:

    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!

    A vegetarian cooking class for 7, gluten/milk dairy/corn free, Egyptian/Moroccan/Turkish cuisine...Aubrey was able to do all of this for us.

    She was so flexible from start to finish in scheduling, menu planning, ingredients & tools. DELICIOUS food, fun personality, easy to follow instruction.

    She did all the shopping, supplemented tools and ingredients we didn't have, and went to town in our kitchen. Best menu options for vegetarians!

    Highly recommend Aubrey.

    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.

  • 5/5 stars Cooking Lessons Verified Review

    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!

    Aubrey has an intuitive sense of how to use flavors and textures to create an amazing meal. She always pulls what is freshest, and then works her magic to create meals that are layered, innovative, and at the same time simple and wholesome enough to leave you feeling satisfied and delighted.

  • 5/5 stars

    Aubrey's approach to food is versatile: she does wonders with everything from simple, elegant salads to richly spiced stews. All of it, of course, with a great aesthetic and attention to healthy eating. She is one of the best chefs I've encountered. What a find!

  • 5/5 stars

    Aubrey has an incredibly keen sense of what goes together - tastes, colors and quantities. I was impressed with the ease and natural flow in which she moved around the kitchen and gave me full permission to include my own creativity, even offering suggestions to take it further.
