before we take an order, we talk with you to learn about your event to determine if we're the right fit.

what we do offer:

  • customize your menu

  • discuss timeline + setup

  • deliver + pick up on time​

what we don't offer:

  • staffed events

  • event planning of any kind

  • alcohol or bar staff 

common questions

1. How fresh is my food? Very! Your dishes will be cooked no more than 12 hours before your delivery.

2. Are you a nut free kitchen? NO. We understand there are serious allergies among our community + work hard to remind everyone that we are NOT a nut-free kitchen.

3. Do you offer gluten/dairy/sugar free options? Please call to discuss special dietary needs.

"We've eaten Joanna's dishes so often my family and friends have forgotten what my cooking tastes like. And that's a very good thing!"

Jeanine G.

"Knowing that my family is eating healthy food at the end of a busy day gives me so much peace of mind. Now when we go out to dinner it's truly for the enjoyment of a new restaurant or special occasion, and not just to grab something cheap and easy."

Kim P.

"Joanna knows food the way some people know art or music. She feels it. We are so excited to hear she's expanding her personal chef services to bespoke catering... the Lake and it's countless parties will benefit from her talent!
