silver plum personal chef


"Beth, everything was perfect. Both Dave and Donna said how great the kitchen looked when you were done. I cannot tell you enough how much everyone enjoyed the dinner last night, from the “foodies” to the “picky” eaters – everyone was thrilled. So, we know we will be in contact with you for our next dinner party!"
"Everything was absolutely perfect, we loved the dinner and I’m planning to have the leftover short rib and soup this evening for dinner! We would be thrilled to have you back regularly!"
"We appreciate your hard work. The evening was a total success. Your menu was continually discussed yesterday and the recipes [you sent] will certainly find their way into our repertoire. It was a delight having you and I look forward to working with you in the future."
"Everyone had a wonderful time, loved dinner, and were impressed by both your creations and how you made everything come together. I will look for opportunities to recommend you to others and work with you again in the future if the occasion arises."
"You know I LOVE your service! I love the meals and it makes my life easy. Plenty to eat, perfect portions, tasty, healthy, and saves me soooo much time. Your packaging is very space saving. I am one happy and relieved customer."
"Everything was picture perfect - from the delicious food to the spotless cleanup to the yummy labeled left-overs. I would have you cook for me every day. We will definitely call you for another special event. Thank you for a very lovely, delicious and relaxing evening!"
"Beth has changed my life in more ways than one could imagine. As a graduate student and a mother of 3 young children, time spent in the kitchen was at an all time low for me. I was uncomfortable feeding my children frozen foods and making home cooked meals was becoming very stressful due to lack of time. Time spent on planning meals, shopping and prepping foods left me with little energy for my family when they arrived home from school and even less energy for my schoolwork when the day was done.

Now, the kids and I walk in the door and unwind together. They help me set the table while I warm up a delicious homemade meal ala Beth and then we sit down together as a family. Beth's services have not only given us more quality time as a family, they have saved us money that would have been spent as a result of grocery shopping with children in tow. Money is also saved as we no longer need childcare in the afternoons and we eat out far less. Beth has added great value to our lives!"
"Working with Beth was great, she is such a pro and the food was fantastic. I have never thrown such an impressive party with so little effort!"
"Beth, we loved the whole experience! The food was great, and I was so impressed with your level of preparation for the event, not to mention how clean the kitchen was at the end of then evening. Thanks so much for making the event special, and I am sure we will have the opportunity to enjoy your delicious food again!"
"What a perfect dinner party. I can't thank you enough and would recommend your services to anyone!"
"Thanks, Beth. So far we've had two meals (I had the pork chop and the salmon) - as usual, both were delicious. The pork chop was actually one of the best I've had in a long time, so kudos."
"Truly extraordinary! We engaged Chef Wells for a private dinner party that we hosted for five couples at our residence in Chicago's North Shore. She received rave reviews from a particularly discriminating crowd. Her creations pleased a wide variety of palates. We found her dishes to be complex but approachable--and definitely fulfilling. She is a treasure! Our new secret weapon. (As you could tell, we loved her)"
"So, the food overall was GREAT – with the panna cotta being my ALLTIME favorite. Or maybe it’s the blueberry stuff on top (incredible). Really want recipe. We had the salad again tonight and loved it even more. Also, loved the parchment presentation. Really easy."
"Just a note to let you know how happy we all are with the splendid food we all had the joy to share for Adam and Jessica's wedding. Your efforts were greatly appreciated by everyone! Again, thanks from all of us."
"In my experience Beth was punctual, professional, efficient and most importantly, her food was outstanding. We had starters/apps, main course and dessert at the dinner party and multiple hors d'oeuvres at the cocktail party. Dessert is a must! She also made wine/cocktail pairings, which were spot on and made accommodations for a vegan guest. When I host another event, I will most definitely ask Beth to provide her chef expertise."
"We so appreciated having you here.[...] The food was delicious and creative, and your professionalism and courtesy (and good humor) was appreciated. We hope to see you again in the future."
"It was amazing! Everything was fantastic, really impressed with everything!! Thank you so much!"
"Beth – we got a great report from the family and they said you cooked an amazing gourmet meal. They shared some nice pictures with us and it looked like a great night. Thanks for making it so special, we were thrilled to hear how much they enjoyed everything."
"Thanks so much for being such a huge part of our celebration.  You completely exceeded our expectations with the food you prepared for our dinner party of 8 guests.   You delivered some of the most tasteful and unique food options for us.  I am not sure which of the five courses was my favorite.   It is quite obvious you enjoy your profession and seem to really have it mastered.   We look forward to the next event to get you back!"
"I wanted to once again thank you for creating such a memorable evening for Carrie's birthday celebration. Your thoughtful menu, skillful preparation, attention to detail and quality was evident to us and our guests. I cannot begin to tell you how many compliments we received on the hors d'oeuvres, the dinner itself, and, of course, the cake. You made it so easy for us to relax and enjoy the time with our guests. We will look forward to the next chance we have to work with you."
"Let me just say everyone loved your personal favorite was the fig app...couldn't get enough! You were a pleasure to work with and my kitchen may have actually been cleaner when you left than when you arrived:) Looking very forward to my next event with you."
"Thank you for being a part of a fun evening. Your food was outstanding, your professionalism was top notch, and your patience in working with Greg and I was stellar!"
"Everything was perfect, thank you!! Food was delicious and our kitchen was spotless! I still feel bad you washed all those dishes. We will definitely have to plan another event at some point. So happy we found you!"
"Thank you so much! Everything was absolutely delicious! My family can't stop talking about how good the food was and how professional you were. The kitchen was left cleaner than when you got there. I will highly recommend you to my family and friends. Thanks again!"
"Thank you so much for dinner last night! The food was sublime, and it was so lovely and calming to have you in our home. Everyone raved about the meal. My favorite compliment came from J., who described your food as "magically light." We look forward to working with you again!"
"Thank you so much for the wonderful experience. Everyone loved the food, and we have been enjoying some leftovers.

We really enjoyed having you. The food was delicious and you left everything spotless! Our parents also had a great time. Brian will have to let his boss know this was one of the best & most thoughtful gifts ever :)

We'd love to do this again some time. Thank you for a very memorable evening!"
"Everything was amazing! Everyone loved the food – thank you so much! I will definitely be using you again!"
"Everything was wonderful and amazing. We really loved every second of it and my kitchen was left in tip top shape."
"Everything was perfect on Sunday evening. Thank you so much for the great food and service, we thoroughly enjoyed it. Thanks also for the spotless clean kitchen when you left. We'd love to have you back and I will certainly be recommending you!"
"Thank you, Beth! Everything was wonderful - so appreciate the efforts as it clearly came through in both the presentation and the food itself."
"Last night was amazing in every way - thanks to you! I will definitely be contacting you for every dinner party I host! We are still talking about what a great evening it was and we will be enjoying the very well-labeled leftovers tonight! Looking forward to having you at our next event!"
