    Absolute Perfection

    Where do we begin? Chef Bonnie was an absolute dream vendor and provided top-quality service for our wedding. From the initial phone call, to the planning process, to the final meal, we were continually blown away with her professionalism, expertise, and skill as a chef. A week after our event and our family is still talking about the meal. She is not only an amazing chef, but a kind and thoughtful person. Her down-to-earth nature made us feel so comfortable and stress free. We can't wait to hire Chef Bonnie again for our next event!!!

    If you’re looking for the best, Chef Bonnie is your only choice.

    My partner and I hired Bonnie for our smallish wedding (~50 people) back in the fall and the food was absolutely incredible! Our guests raved about the canapes that she created for our cocktail hour, which included the sweet corn cakes, mini tacos, and the tuna poke tostadas (among other things that were equally delicious). She also had an awesome grazing platter with lots of delish cheeses and meats! Her dinner menu was also amazing and included great veggie and non-veggie options. I had the duck leg and my wife had the beef tenderloin and it was TO. DIE. FOR. Such complex flavors and everything tasted so fresh and unlike anything I had had before (definitely nothing like I had had at a wedding before). Everything was perfectly cooked! While the food is the thing I want to rave about the most, I also have to comment on Bonnie's professionalism. She was incredibly responsive to all of our questions and was very organized. This makes a huge and important part of every wedding (the FOOD!) much less of a headache. I can't recommend her enough; my standards for wedding food are MUCH higher now! Our friends are still raving about the food!

    SO WORTH IT! Love supporting a female chef with EPIC food!

    I LOVED Chef Bonnie! Her and her team made delicious food, had a great/professional attitude and really set the tone for a wonderful evening. Throughout our entire planning process she was very communicative (often responding to my late-night inquiries right away!) and super helpful. We decided to have a super small, 15 person wedding and she basically filled in as our day-of wedding planner (in addition to making epic food), making sure every detail was taken care of. Amazing!

    Not only that, but her food is epic. I love supporting female chefs/female-run businesses and her food was unbelievable...like fine-dining quality with gorgeous plating and wonderful flavors. She is really easy to be around and often chatted with us as we walked in and out of the kitchen. Her attention to detail is superb.

    Basically I love Chef Bonnie! Hire her ASAP and you will not regret it!
