    "Chef Lisa did an incredible job. We had a Halloween themed wedding and gave Lisa full creative control of the menu. The variety, quality, and presentation of the dishes was outstanding. Everyone was talking about how delicious it all was. We will definitely call on her culinary expertise again for our next event."
  • Rachel Fitcher, Out of State Client

    "I hired Lisa to cook a special birthday dinner for my mother and her husband and was very happy with the outcome. She was prompt and professional every step of the way. My mother loved her five-course tapas gourmet meal and said the service was amazing. I would recommend Lisa to anyone looking for beautiful, delicious food and professional service."

    "Lisa is amazing! I am so glad I found her. She has been my personal chef since July. Yup - I have a personal chef! Whoa! Lisa will work with you to accommodate any budget. Don't subscribe to the myth that you can't afford her. You will be pleasantly surprised (and kicking yourself for not contacting her sooner). She is a fantastic chef and her dishes are top notch. She is very flexible and is a really cool person to work with. Her upbeat personality is contagious! No complaints. I would recommend her to anyone."
