Efficient Kitchen Assessment & Organization
Would you love to cook more, but you’re just overwhelmed, feel like it always takes longer than it should, and sometimes, you just don’t know where to even start? We can ABSOLUTELY help with this (in fact, it’s one of our favorite things to do). Upon completion of these services, Chef Karen will co-prepare and cook a meal in your newly ordered space, to show you how to use your kitchen to its best potential. The scope of this series varies greatly based on your needs and often, the kitchen’s size, but here’s where we start:
Audit of tools and equipment
Online shopping list
- Entire kitchen reorganization of shelves, drawers, pantry space, to maximize the workability and flow of your space
Purchase and delivery of new serveware, tools and equipment
Removal of old equipment and items
Cocktails & Hors D’Oeuvres
Getting together before the main event? Hosting a book club? Want people out of your house before it gets too late? Drinks and appetizers are a great way to get the group together, and get everyone where they need to go.
A great way to do something different with a group, or take a private/semi-private class to gain some much needed skills. We will design a custom class, based on your needs, and finish the event with a meal (or meals) from the fruits of your labor. Guest will receive instruction, recipe packets, and tips for fast preparation and execution, knife skills and professional plating.

If you are interested in our services, but they don’t line up perfectly with what is listed above, please reach out to us and we will do our very best to help you! Karen is happy to arrange a phone call, assess your needs, and establish a plan - whether it's simply menu planning for yourself or your family, or stocking your freezer full of winter soups. We love our clients and we want to help you, and sometimes that's more of a strategy sessions than a party.
