I give very personalized service to my clients. I am very detail oriented and it shows in the food preparation and manner of service. For example, last week, I had a client that was planning to travel to Napa Valley and was unable to do so. I wrote a special "Napa" menu for them. Small, intimate events are my specialty, from as small as 2 up to 50 guests. We can also provide chafing dishes, china, glassware, candles, linens and printed, custom menus to mark a special occasion. I have been cooking my entire life. However, 26 years ago, I decided to get professionally trained. 20 years ago, I received an Associates' degree in Culinary Arts ... View Profile
