“Chef Tina is top notch! From her bubbling personality to her fresh and healthy spin on crowd favorites. Over the month of July, Tina cooked probably twenty plus meals for my family and friends. She did a great job scaling to whatever size our group was and putting together menus that appealed to all. I highly recommend her for day to day chef services and larger events. She brings an enthusiasm and energy to your kitchen that is truly contagious. I loved that she showed up with locally sourced produce and ingredients. You can tell she loves what she does, it come through in the incredible dishes she creates and serves. “

“We hired Tina to assist in healthy cooking for my husband who had several medical conditions. Tina listened to his likes and dislikes and cooked some amazing meals. She found ways for my husband to eat vegetables even though he hates vegetables. My husband, a picky eater did not even notice there was no meat in either dish. Tina always left the kitchen spotless.”

– Mrs. DR. Gary Greenberg


“Chef Tina was simply fantastic and a gem!  She cooked dinner for our family to celebrate my mother in law’s birthday, and she impressed our whole family with her professionalism, service, and quality of her cooking.  She was super easy to communicate with and very helpful with menu planning, executed everything flawlessly.  Her timing was superb as it’s not easy to cook and serve a large party.  She made an out of this world black and white cookie cake that’s unforgettable.  On top of this, she’s very sweet.  We highly recommend her and would definitely work with Chef Tina again!



“Chef Tina was absolutely amazing. She came and cooked for 14 girls for my sisters bachelorette and It couldn’t have gone better. She came early to prep as we were all out and when we came back she set up a beautiful spread. The food was delicious, healthy and filling! She was extremely, professional, talented, nice, clean and a pleasure to have to the house!  After dessert was served, she cleaned everything and It looked cleaner after she left. I would 100% use Chef Tina again. – for large or small groups!”



“Chef Tina was masterful to work with from start to finish. She was collaborative and thoughtful throughout the planning process, starting with a conversation to understand what we were looking to do and turning around a brilliant and delicious menu that met the needs of our 7-person dinner party. After crafting a delicious farm-to-table styled dinner, Chef Tina locally-sourced all of the ingredients and flavors from nearby farm stands and seafood joints — from a vibrant elevated crudite veggie platter to freshly-shucked oysters, everything boasted with flavor. Throughout the process, she was communicative and flexible, and the day-of, she showed up on time with all the food and tools in-hand to put together what was a memorable and innovative meal for my parent’s 40th anniversary. From conception to completion, everything about Chef Tina’s services and cooking was A+++++. We are still salivating over the steak two weeks later. Thank you Chef Tina for your creativity, passion and brilliance. We hope to see you again soon, and can’t recommend your services enough.”
