Meet The Chef

Born and raised in the beautiful South Africa, I was fortunate enough to grow up in a family where food was the center for conversations and laughter.

I remember visiting my grandparents' farm where  everything was made from scratch.  The aromas in my grandmother's kitchen, where she cooked everything on a wood burning stove, still holds the fondest memories for me.

It's there that my food journey started, making butter in a mason jar, prepping vegetables from her garden and baking fresh, authentic bread.

I remain inspired by my experiences in the kitchen all those years ago and I am very excited about the shift back to those basics, using grass-fed beef and butter, organic vegetables and simple clean food.  As a personal chef it is a joy to share my passion for healthy and nourishing food with my clients.

 

“The kitchen is a mystical place, a kind of temple for me.  It is a place where the surfaces seem to have significance, where the sounds and odors carry meaning that transfers from the past and bridges to the future.”

-Pearl Bailey (singer/actress)

My Personal Chef Service provides 4-5 different meals, prepared on a single day in your own kitchen.  I prepare a personalized menu every week, do the shopping on the morning of my cook date and package the meals according to your preferences.

 

This is the perfect option for busy individuals and families who prefer to enjoy healthy and flavorful meals at home.  Special dietary needs are also welcome.

Personal Chef 

Spending time with friends around the dinner table creates magical moments in our lives.    It brings me great joy creating these moments for clients.  I plan the menu, do the shopping, prepare the dinner in your kitchen, plate the food and leave the kitchen spotless.

Cooking Lessons

Whether you need to start with basic cooking techniques or just improve your own skills, this is a great hands-on experience.  Not only will we prepare a couple of recipes, but I also share some of the “secrets” I discovered thru my many years of cooking. Cooking lessons will be held in your own kitchen and can be one-on-one or a group of friends.
