Chef Ashley's reviews
We surprised my parents for their 45th wedding anniversary with this unique gift and Chef Ashley did not disappoint! From the beginning she presented several different menu options and helped work with me to customize what would work best for that evening. She was available to answer any questions I had from the time we moved forward in hiring her to the actual dinner a month later. My parents haven't stopped talking about the dinner! Thank you Chef Ashley for making this one of a kind gift so special and personable for my parents!

Ashley was amazing! She was very professional, she engaged in our conversation and answered all our questions. She served beautiful dishes and even brought a complimentary pairing for dessert and breakfast items for the next morning. It will be a meal that is not soon forgotten!

The dinner was amazing. Ashley worked with us developing the menu and was extremely knowledgeable. It was our first time using a personal chef and I would highly recommend her and the experience.
