Make your next party one YOU enjoy as much as your guests. Let Chef Jennifer take all the stress out of your party, whether it’s for four or fifty.

Imagine its 5:00 on a Saturday afternoon. You’ve just gotten home from the soccer and 2 T-ball games your kids had all day, and you have 25 people arriving for dinner in just about an hour. That’s when you realize, the table is set, hors d’oeuvres are ready to go, and the delicious smell of dinner in the oven is wafting in from your kitchen. All you need to do is take a quick shower, run a brush through your hair, and you’re ready for a festive evening with friends and family.

At the end of the night when the party is over and all of your guests have left, you find your kitchen spotless. Plates and glasses are washed and put away and you enjoyed yourself all night. Every little detail was taken care of and you were able to mingle with your guests and enjoy a stress free evening. That's when you realize….this was the best party you have ever thrown.

Some of the types of parties Chef Jennifer has done in the past:

Casual Buffet
Elegant Dinners
Tasting menus
Wine parings
Ladies luncheons
Theme dinners from around the world
Corporate parties


Whatever your level of experience, no cooking skills, little experience, or you just want to learn a new type of cuisine, Chef Jennifer loves to teach the art of cooking. Whether you are a beginner and want to learn the basics, a beginner who wants to learn how to prepare that special someone’s favorite meal, or an experienced cook who wants to focus on a specific discipline such as classic Italian or low-fat cooking, Chef Jennifer will set the lesson plan, develop the recipes and menus and shop for your private lesson.

Learn in the privacy of your own home, in your own kitchen

Get together with your friends for an evening of fun and entertainment. Chef Jennifer will come to your home and give an educational and interactive demonstration – you choose the topic and the menu and Chef Jennifer provides hands-on instruction for you and your friends.

Don’t spend another holiday waking at the crack of dawn, slaving away in the kitchen, and once the meal is served and the kitchen cleaned, just as you’re ready to relax and enjoy your guests, they’re ready to leave. Let Chef Jennifer help take the stress out of your holiday meal. Chef Jennifer is happy to help you out with all your holiday preparations.
