Katie has been cooking for my family for two years. She is by far the best personal chef that I have ever had. She is a delight to work with in creating delicious menus around a gluten sensitivity that I have. Every week, Katie comes up with a nutirtious and varied meal plan for us. She has certainly increased our interest in eating a variety of vegetables and serves them with meat and fish pairings that are delicious. We love the variety of her different dishes and the fact that all the food is fresh and organic. She is very conscious of this in her careful grocery shopping and will advise us if a fish that I wanted to have was looking fresh or not. Then she will take a pass. When my adult children and their husbands come for a visit, they immediately throw open the fridge and ask has Katie been in. In addtion to our regular scheduled weekly deliveries, Katie caterd the most perfect summer bridal lucheon for my daughter and her bridesmaids in our LP back yard. I enthusiastically recommend Katie and my family and I have never been disappointed by her cooking skill, the wide variety in her menus and her sunny and caring disposition. A very pleased and enthusiastic customer!
