Chef Debbie's reviews

Chef Debbie was amazing… She had to assistance Lizbeth and Andy… They were all professional and polite…the food was delicious…and best of all they cleaned up. I would definitely recommend Take A Chef to anybody.

Chef Debbie provided 10 of us with an incredible Super Bowl menu while we watched the game. We requested tailgate fare, and Chef Debbie delivered, and then some. Simple items to the next level. Most times, the best food are simple dishes executed properly. The Margarita Tart on a Pretzel crust was insane!! Chef Debbie and her partner arrived on-time and remained on-site for approximately 7 hours. Chef Debbie answered all my questions and provided all guests an explanation of each dish. They cleaned the kitchen and all dishes thoroughly, and bagged all trash. A wonderful experience that I would not hesitate to enjoy again. You won't be disappointed with Chef Debbie!!

This was our first time having a personal chef come to our house just for my wife and I. Chef Debbie did a great job, her food was delicious and she was very professional. I highly recommend Chef Debbie if you looking for an intimate night home dinner idea.

Chef Debbie Elder was amazing - not only was her food delicious, but she also provided excellent explanation of her dishes, used vegetables and herbs from her own personal garden, and left my kitchen spotless! Highly recommend!
