Oh, Stop!!

 

“We had Such a wonderful experience with Melissa for my dad’s 70th birthday dinner for 5 people! She was friendly and an excellent communicator, reliable, flexible, and the food was absolutely amazing! She worked with us to create a perfect menu, then showed up at the house totally prepared and prepped, and gracefully whipped up a out-of-the-park meal. Very professional and experienced, and so organized. Respectful of our space, and left the kitchen immaculate. We look forward to hopefully working with her again. Recommend highly!”

“What an amazing night!! Melissa cooked us an elaborate New Year’s Eve meal that I couldn’t stop smiling about from start to finish. From the duck and seasonal veggies over polenta to the delicious over the top salad..it was exactly what our group wanted. Beyond that, she’s an amazing person to have around. She’s calm and focused and easy to talk to. Can’t wait for the next Clark creation!!”

“I had reached out to Melissa about a dinner party and then the venue fell through, and 2 days before, I had the venue again, and Melissa was able to whip together a dinner party for 10 and it was delicious! She also was able to accommodate my pescartarian friend, while we had steak 😉 Melissa came well prepared and left the kitchen cleaner than when she arrived. All the food was delicious, everyone could not stop talking about the olive oil chocolate mouse! yum….”

“We had a picnic in the park and it couldn’t have gone any better. From the mouth watering pate and cheese plate, to the perfectly balanced sandwiches. Every bite had a deep palette of flavors. The food made the event both elegant and comfortable. The perfectly paired wines led to a seamless evening with good friends.”

“Melissa and I catered a wedding together and I could have not asked for a better partner. From creating the menu, her execution and even down to her eye for detail, she had it down. We were in a pretty stressful situation catering a wedding for almost 100 people, but Melissa kept her cool allowing everything to flow properly with no hiccups. I would do it a million times over with her and would definitely recommend hiring her for any gig, one would be quite lucky.”

“Wow, so much more fun to have a dinner party catered! We had a perfectly cooked duck breast, no easy task, with roasted vegetables over parm. polenta and a brussel sprout salad. Yum! But my favorite was the poached pear pudding with something called cajeta sauce…I have a sweet tooth. The guests raved and I actually could spend time with them! Super clean up afterwards too by Melissa! Highly recommend.”

“What can I say about Melissa? I have one word….excellence. She is an incredibly accomplished chef with an attentive ear and exceptional detail. She made the most amazing dinner for two to celebrate an anniversary. She was creative, kind, clean and her menu was out of this world. We greatly appreciated her farm-to-table techniques. We were so impressed, we are planning a second meal with her. I’m so lucky I found her and would (and already have) recommended her services and talents to others.\r\n\r\nIf you hire Melissa, you will not be disappointed. If I could give 10 stars, I most definitely would.”
