As a personal chef, I strive to provide great food and the best possible service, all focused on what my clients want. This attention to my clients has been rewarded with many satisfied customers. Check out what my clients are saying:


Due to a hectic schedule during the school year, Carla was a lifesaver for my daughter and I .  After having consultations with Carla, the three of us brainstormed about what kinds of foods she could prepare for lunches on a weekly basis. Carla provided healthy alternatives for my daughter to have nutritious hot/cold school lunches.  The meals were a balance diet consisting of all the food groups and were simply delicious! Carla also provided variety all year long which allowed my daughter to try a vast array of foods. More important, my daughter began thinking about what she was eating for lunch, and she began making healthier food choices which became positive changes.  This helped us transition to making healthier alternatives when grocery shopping.

Carla, thank you for your promptness, professionalism, tasty food and  embracing and knowing the importance of it taking a village to raise a child. Your simply awesome!! See you again for the 2013-2014 school term.
