Why I love doing this? 


This has always been a lifelong dream that I was not sure would event come to fruition. One day I just decided to step out on faith and believe in my dreams. Feeling like I had reached a ceiling within my career I took what I had learned and combined it with my love for food; service and cooking. I want to provide great food experiences for all of my clients. "When you eat the food; you feel the love” ~Chef Chi
