What clients are saying!

  • I would highly recommend Anne as a personal chef and caterer. She catered a wonderful picnic for me and met every detail with professionalism. Her experience and expertise was demonstrated in assisting with a great menu and very tasty food.   She is a delight to work with and very flexible with food requests. The quality of the ingredients she used was excellent. I have now had the best Creme Brulee ever.

  • What was so wonderful about Anne, is that she covers all the details regarding entertaining. The menu selection was surprisingly large and I had vegetarian restrictions, which Anne was so good about accommodating. I simply chose the menu and she did the rest including wine recommendations and taking care of clean up. The food was amazing; I recommend the chocolate dessert- Anne's specialty. As a hostess, rarely can you simply sit back and enjoy the evening, but with Anne at work I worried about nothing!
