Kathy was personable, professional, and very communicative. We enjoyed her five course Italian dinner and couldn't decide which course was our favorite. She was also able to very easily accommodate my wife's gluten allergy. Highly recommend!

My husband and I had Chef Kathy at our place for her 5 course Italian dinner and everything was fantastic! She used herbs from her personal garden which added a lot of flavor to each course. Would highly recommend, we loved the experience!

We had an amazing time and Chef Kathy was so welcoming, kind and so thoughtful when it came to the details of our experience. It was wonderful!!! We definitely want to do it again. We really enjoyed learning and of course eating the food. She made our anniversary feel special and we will cherish every moment forever.
