Chef Rhonda brought us a full flavored and quick recipes to prepare. Her passion for food and teaching it is contagious and make easier to learn to any level. With more than 20 years of experience in line cook, personal/private chef, caterer, food service director, chef Rhonda knows how to prepare and teach many types of cuisine. I was delighted with an extraordinary menu and traveled through the flavors of Spain with her Apple and Manchego tapas on grilled bread, had some of France with a Classic French Mussels, Asia with the Easy Beef Pho and Italy with the classic Spaghetti alla Carbonara. All of them were delicious. You will enjoy her classes and food. Highly recommend.

My husband and I would highly recommend Rhonda as a Chef for your party or family meals. Rhonda has created delicious meals for both small and large gatherings at our home. Each menu was thoughtfully created with our input; the quality and presentation surpassed our expectations. Rhonda is delightful to have in your kitchen, extremely professional and lots of fun. She shopped for ingredients, brought specific utensils I didn’t have and cleanup afterwards without a trace!
