In today’s busy world it can be difficult to be everywhere you want to be and do everything you want to do. Now you don’t have to!
The Occasional Chef is the answer to balancing your need to entertain with keeping your time free to pursue other interests.
After planning a menu with you, we do the shopping, food preparation, and cooking so you can relax and enjoy your party. We cook in your own kitchen and serve on your own dishes so you can dine with your guests in absolute comfort. When we’re done, we leave your kitchen as we found it. Neat and tidy.
It’s your party and it is entirely up to you whether we stay and assist you in serving your guests or whether we quietly leave prior to your guest’s arrival. We happily accommodate your requests and do whatever we can to ensure a successful function.
We provide centerpieces, theme decorations, candles, piñatas, and other decorations upon request. Let us help you plan the perfect party. From baby showers and wedding receptions to reunions of good friends, we can make your celebration memorable!
