Santa  Barbara's Favorite Personal Chef

Are you time-pressed or don't feel like cooking? Let me prepare mouth-watering custom meals that suit your palate and dietary needs. I enjoy cooking for clients who not only desire delicious meals being prepared in their home but who also want meals to become a beautiful experience in their lives.

Time spent cooking in your home is in itself a relationship that can bring joy, humor, and new perspectives.

I am happy to cook just the way you like your cuisine or explore with you new tastes and menus.

I can do all the shopping and cleanup, leaving your kitchen immaculate.

I am available for full time employment from two to five days a week.

*I do not cater events or one-time dinners.


The Process:

You and I  will meet at your home to discuss your favorite kinds of food, any dietary restrictions, allergies and what cuisine you like and dislike. I can create dishes for every palate, including paleo, organic, Atkins, gluten-free,  low carb, low fat, low sodium, vegetarian, etc.. Next. we will create a customized first menu according to your preferences and schedule our first cooking date.

Then, I will shop for the freshest produce, meats and seafood (depending on your palate) per your budget and bring to your home to create your first delicious meal.  Then I will clean your kitchen and leave it spotless.  All you have to do is relax and enjoy.
