Get to know me better

Private Traveling Chef

I am a Private Traveling Chef willing and able to cook anywhere in the US and the Caribbean and am available for one time events or short term stays for you or groups up to 75 people. I have over 10 years of in-home service experience and over 33 years of cooking experience. I was professionally trained in Culinary at Johnson and Wales University ('92) and furthered my education at Laboure College (dietetics) and gained a BA in psychology from the University of Rhode Island('10). I have cooked for Paula Deen, Rihanna, and Kelly Clarkson but have worked with many stars over the years. I also have successful experience in event planning for small to very large events.

Along with my professional experience, my personal life has helped me in my career. I grew up in the South and then lived in New England, Haiti and currently live between the Dominican Republic and the US. I love to travel, see the world and especially taste all the world has to offer. I have traveled to over 9 different countries on 3 different continents and It has helped me with developing recipes and creating many dishes to please the palate. International Comfort foods are a favorite of mine but I am well versed in Caribbean, Italian, Greek, Mexican, and many American cuisines such as Southern, Soul Food, New England, Tex Mex and Fusion.

I really enjoy working with people, from a small conversation to filling your belly with your favorite dish. Let me know your vision or tastes and we will work together to create your dream event. I also have nutritional education and can work with special diets (whether self-elected or medically required) and am certified in handling Allergy restrictions/food sensitivities and Certified as a Food Safety Manager, Trainer, and Proctor both through Servsafe.

My Food Philosophy: Food is the glue of life and tends to be our centerpiece for family gatherings and events and even our daily existence! I am here to help you create your food vision whether it's for yourself, your family or an event. I recognize that we all have different tastes and I work hard to accommodate your food needs and wants.

My In-Home Cooking Philosophy: Working in your home is a very private moment and I take the confidentiality of my clients very seriously. I treat your home, your family and personal information with the utmost respect. I will leave your kitchen sparkling as if I was never there!

I look forward to working with you and leaving you with positive memories you will never forget!

Chef Kimberly's reviews

Chef Kim was amazing. She was responsive from the second i submitted a request. Chef Kim offered multiple menus and tweaked her offerings to reflect the tastes we desired for our meal. She was patient with us and our newborn, outgoing and polite, and she did an amazing job with the food and cleaning. I would request chef Kim specifically for my next take a chef experience.
