    Great communication and preparation leading up to the event. Really understood the requirements and was happy to adjust the menu options to suit. The night was delivered as agreed with a smile and great timings. Food was great and good interaction with the guests. Would use Karla again and definitely recommend her to others.

    Karla was a pleasure to deal with. Friendly and courteous, yet discreet at the same time, she created a beautiful meal for us in the comfort of our own home. Food was tasty and well presented. We plan to book her again

    Fantastic service and incredible multitasking at our 13 person thanksgiving dinner. Karla was superb despite an oven that kept turning off in our kitchen! Great event and service all around.
