CREATING MEMORABLE MOMENTS AROUND THE TABLE IS WHAT DRIVES MY PASSION FOR COOKING GOOD FOOD AND SHARING THAT EXPERIENCE WITH OTHERS.
WITH THE GOURMET GODDESS IN THE KITCHEN, YOU CAN ONCE AGAIN BE A PART OF THE CELEBRATION.
Fresh simple ingredients prepared perfectly is at the heart of my cooking. I source from local growers and producers whenever possible to create the best tasting food you can’t wait to serve your guests.
Hello friends! Thanks for stopping by to learn what The Gourmet Goddess is all about.
I have been preparing delicious gourmet food for my clients and their guests at private in-home gatherings since 2012. Whether a formal dinner party, lively cocktail party or afternoon brunch, I’m here to make entertaining an effortless endeavor for you. So often when entertaining at home, you get bogged down in all the details and miss out on actually enjoying your own party.
Creating memorable moments around the table with exceptionally delicious food is what drives my passion for cooking and I love sharing that experience with others. My main goal is for you to be able to 100% focus on your guests and fully enjoy the occasion you are celebrating.
When you work with The Goddess, you once again get to be part of the celebration, a guest in your home making memories with those around you. And eating some pretty fantastic food in the process!
Feeding people delicious food is what nourishes my soul. Using the best ingredients possible, preparing them perfectly and serving them beautifully is everything you can expect when working with The Gourmet Goddess.
Cheese + Charcuterie board styling is a great skill to have if you love to entertain. We eat with our eyes first so the presentation is our guests’ first impression of what they are about to eat. In this workshop, I will teach you about curating great ingredients and masterfully arranging them so that your cheeseboard is a delicious work of art nobody can resist!
Bringing people together around a delicious meal is one of my greatest joys. Food and conversation have the power to transform your time with others. The Goddess and The Gatherer dinner experience was created to blend a room of complete strangers, seat them together around a glorious meal in an inviting setting and wait for the magic to happen. It is a dining event like no other!
Hosting your own event is a lot of fun, but also a lot of work. Allowing me to take care of what’s happening in the kitchen lets you get back to having a good time with your guests. Dinner party, cocktail party or brunch, no matter the occasion I’m here to make it extra special.
I had the incredible fortune of being around a lot of delicious, homemade food growing up. My great grandfather was a chef and as a child he taught me how he prepared things in his restaurant. He took simple, fresh ingredients and cooked them perfectly. I take that same approach, using the best of what’s available in the season, sourcing from local growers and producers and letting those ingredients shine by pairing the right ones together for the best flavor.

I love the way a room transforms when people are gathered around a table of good food, sharing a common experience. We become more deeply connected, bonding over the meal set before us. We learn, we grow, we understand more about one another. Slowing down, taking the time to savor the conversation, the smells, the flavors, the entire feeling of being in each other's company. It’s what I love most about cooking for others. Helping you create memories of a moment in time where nothing else mattered but who was at your table and the meal you shared….that’s the good stuff!
