Chef Rachel was great. Very accommodating. Really fun to talk with and a very delicious meal. We’d do this again with her.

Rachel was really fun to work with! We were supposed to have a private chef experience, by she saw that we wanted to help so morphed the evening into a cooking class. It was a great experience for us and out adult children.

Rachel's a fantastic cook and served up a great meal at our home to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It was like eating at a restaurant... but better because we were at home.
