My Story


Whether you are interested in planning a home cooking party, celebrating a special moment in your life like a birthday or in need of Private Chef Services, I can customize a healthy menu and pair great tasting wines with your menu so you have time to enjoy your party or event as the host.

Chef Linda here.

As a Southern & California cuisine cook, I enjoy creating fast and simple healthy meals. I also enjoy cooking tappas, tasty snacks and appetizers. The key is seasoning fresh ingredients.

If you are Celiac, Gluten, or have Food Allergies, we can discuss ways to create and convert recipes so you do not have to give up casseroles, pasta or desserts when you take a dish to parties. I also offer grocery shopping tips, kitchen/cupboard clearing and food labelling advice so you can identify those disguised sugar, carbs and allergy related ingredients that sneak into your mouth!

I am also working on a healthy meals cookbook that will include delicious Gluten/Allergy-Free recipes. So remember, low-calorie, healthy dishes does not mean that your meals have to lack taste. Fresh food prepared properly should burst with flavor on your palate’ and boost your energy!

I have been inspired by my Mother since I was a girl to join her in the kitchen and cook dishes from my family’s recipes. She used to say, “put on your apron, fire up the oven and let’s get started!” Now I have converted old family recipes and new dishes to be healthy and nutritious. Sweet and savoury flavors ….Southern style!

So contact me today so we can start planning your next party or special event!
