Chef Karen was amazing. She came with the basics prepared and then walked us through a multi course meal prep. The food was delicious and she was wonderful. The evening couldn’t have been more perfect. Don’t hesitate to work with her, you’ll be happy you did.

What a magical experience! Chef Karen is truly a gem all around. From the unbelievable flavors of her dishes, down to her vibrant personality, Chef Karen truly made this a once in a lifetime experience. I wholeheartedly recommend booking with Chef Karen for any occasion. Not only did she personalize the experience for me and my boyfriend, but also made us feel included in the process of cooking as she explained all her tricks. What an absolute rockstar!

Chef Karen was wonderful. She was on time. Communication leading up to the experience was great. Also, her instruction during the experience was easy to understand and execute. Her personality is so great it made the cooking experience so much more fun! Her energy and love for cooking felt like it flowed from her to us and made the cooking experience so much better. Of course, the pizza was awesome and tasted so good. We learned a lot from her teachings! Thank you Chef Karen!
