Here is what they said about the chef.

We couldn't have had a better chef!

We decided on Chef Lori as a group and we couldn't have had a better chef!! Her food was absolutely delicious. You can tell she has a passion for food. For our particular menu she picked the perfect items - the food tasted so fresh and was so filling. My personal favorite was her berry pie that she made for dessert. Plus she made extra so we had leftovers and got to enjoy a whole berry pie the next day for breakfast. AND you know what the best part is? She fit right in with our crazy group of women lol!! I've told everyone I know about Chef Lori and Foodpeople. You won't be disappointed!!

She is a GEM

Can’t believe it has taken me two weeks to review Chef Lori, but I think it’s because I’ve just awoken from the UNBELIEVABLE food coma I’ve been in since Lori came and cooked for us. Not only was she SO flexible on the kitchen setup, menu, ingredients, and location, she was simply so nice. After arriving on time, she took charge of the kitchen and made the experience as wonderful as possible. We did not lift a finger once she was there, and her explanations and general conversations about food and more were just delightful. It was nice to also have her remind me that the dinner party was at our own pace. She did not rush us, and it helped with the overall five-star experience. I will definitely use Lori again in a heartbeat if she accepts bc I waited two weeks to write this. She is a GEM. Thank you again!!!!

Lori was amazing! From beginning to end, she was a delight to work with. Our guests LOVED her diverse menu, beautiful presentations and all of the incredible flavors that kept coming out of our kitchen all night long! I may never cook for a party again, now that I have found Lori
