    I worked directly with Kim, the owner, who was absolutely amazing. Her and her team’s level of professionalism is truly unmatched. She really brought my vision to life, but provided suggestions that really up-leveled the entire experience. The food itself was absolutely delicious and really blew everyone away. I’m still receiving compliments about it!

    Chef Kim first catered my 40th birthday and was nothing short of AMAZING! I had no idea what type of menu would best fit my venue and theme but after a consult, she designed the perfect menu selections. And even better, the food SURPASSED her customer service. I’ve been a repeat customer every since!

    It takes a variety of skills to effectively command a kitchen and demand perfection In your performance. Passion For The Palate Managed to do both. Chef Kim services is the perfect fit for me and my guest. Her services made me feel like a million dollar woman with a million dollar life style for just one day; as well as my guest. After the first experience my guest always show up to my dinner party bc now they have high expectations of what will be. I will continue to use her for my many events and also highly recommend her to others. Thank you, Chef Kimberly your overall performance/services is absolutely AMAZING.

    Chef Kimberly catered my wedding on June 2019, from our very first conversation about the menu she assured me things were going to be perfect and all I had to worry about was marrying my husband LOL! As much as I wanted to believe her I was nervous to say the lease. When I TELL YOU CHEF KIM was AMAZING!!!! Her food was exceptional I mean 5 stars across the board, her creativity made my food stations stand out, she set up a Mac and Cheese bar with braised short ribs, lobster, bacon, fried chicken OMG all the guest are still talking about it. She was worth every single penny! She is the real deal!!!
