What People Are Saying...
"Courtney catered my graduation party, which was an informal indoor/outdoor affair for about 25 guests, held at my home. Courtney delivered a solid performance on what I expect are the staples of any personal chef's practice: she was consistently available throughout the consultation and menu planning process, delivered accurate quantity and cost estimates for the grocery and supply lists, and executed the menu in a precise, timely and efficient manner. What really struck me about working with Courtney, however, was her attention to the minute details. These details - the choice of colors in arranging a simple veggie tray, the accents provided to a cheese tray by her choice of nuts and dry fruit, the rosemary sprig in the bowl of olives - elevated my guests' dining experience to gourmet. I was also impressed with Courtney's adaptability: pulling together a menu I loved with virtually no guidance, cooking within the confines of my cramped and embarrassingly under-resourced kitchen, creating masterpieces that could hold their own indoors and outdoors without the benefit of chafing dishes or coolers. Lastly, but most importantly, was what having Courtney cater my graduation party really bought me: the freedom to enjoy the company of my family and friends, knowing that the details were taken care of. She has my unwavering endorsement."
"Courtney catered my end of Season Game of Thrones viewing party. She worked with me to plan an outstanding menu. I was somewhat ambivalent about the finer details - I just knew that I wanted the food to be epic, hearty, rustic and meat-centric. Courtney delivered on all counts! We had a true meat-fest; braised short ribs in red wine and fresh garden herbs, slow roasted butterflied lamb smothered in garlic, and kielbasa links wrapped in thick cut peppery bacon. She also whipped up some wonderful twice baked potato skin "trenchers" that were super crisp on the outside, but chewy to perfection on the inside. Courtney sourced all the ingredients with great care, using her keen eye for quality and freshness. She is also very resourceful - originally we had discussed a rack of lamb. However, on the day of the event, there were no rack of lambs available that met Courtney's high standard. She subbed in the butterflied lamb, tweaked her preparation queue, and everything ended up superb. Courtney is also an extremely pleasant person to have in the kitchen. She doesn't feel like a stranger - she has so much warmth and enthusiasm for her craft. Even with me hovering over her shoulder, she graciously educated me along with her preparation process and explained all the nuances to the dishes to me (and the guests!) The food was gourmet, high end restaurant quality in the comfort of my own home! I can't recommend Courtney's personal chef services enough. She is excellent and you will love her."
"I love duck. I love my wife. I would love my wife to make me duck. She cooks fairly well - but duck was not something she has been able to prepare successfully until Courtney came along. In just one in depth lesson - Courtney was able to step her through the entire process of duck a l'orange. She showed my wife how to select the best duck breast, how to time the searing in the pan, make the sauce, and even how to attractively separate orange segments from the skin and peel (there's some fancy term for segmenting oranges - but I don't know what it is. Courtney does, though!) My wife has replicated this dish a few times (once with blood oranges from Courtney's suggestion in a follow up email!) and it's been consistently great!"
