Barb was friendly and easy to work with and the food was awesome! Everybody enjoyed the change from the normal chain restaurant catering and she worked with us on our budget to make it happen!

We hired Barb this summer to cater our daughter’s 6th birthday party. It was a Cowgirl theme and Barb did an amazing job building out the menu to accommodate not only our theme, but also 19+ adults and about 15 children (many of which were picky eaters …and they came back for seconds!)…I can’t wait for an opportunity to use Barb again!!

"I’ve had the pleasure of using “A Chef of Your Own” for both business and personal catering needs. Barb Shafer and her team create an excellent dining experience to meet a variety of needs - from a small business lunch to a multi-course, formal dinner event. The quality of food, variety of recipes and attention to detail keep this company at the top of my catering go to list.

Want an outstanding chef who's easy to work with, creative, professional and will make your event memorable from start to finish? Barb Shafer's the one! We used Barb to cater a special celebration for our family reunion, and everything about it was outstanding. Barb has great menu ideas and will incorporate your own tastes and needs. Everything was prepared to perfection using fresh, local, in-season ingredients, and each course surpassed my highest expectations. I'd hire her again in a heartbeat!

Had my first meal tonight and all I can say is “where have you been all my life?”.
Will be a weekly customer henceforth.

Hi Barb,
I hope you are doing well. I just sat down to lunch for the chicken schwarma thighs. WOW. This is one of the best meals I’ve ever eaten.  Anything with chicken thighs is usually a winner with me, but this is just so darn good.

Just thought I’d drop a note to say thank you to you and your staff and tell you how excited I am to be back after COVID and be able to order your food again. I hope you have been able to stay well during these crazy times.
