The Cooking for Luv Signature Experience™

Lost in the kitchen but still want to impress your date with a sensational home cooked meal? Do not fear, my partner in culinary crime! Together, you and I will cook a three course meal that will knock the socks off of Mr. or Ms. Right (or Mr. or Ms. Right Now). You’ll learn some killer cooking techniques along the way but best of all, I’ll be gone without a trace by the time they arrive so you’ll get full credit for the myriad splendors on the table! What happens after that, is up to you…


When you cook for someone – when you take the time to plan a menu, shop for ingredients, prepare recipes, set a table &  a mood, put your heart, time and energy into something that expresses passion, beauty, tasty delight- you are giving the person you are feeding one of the utmost expressions of how much you care. Whatever your goal is for the person/date (and I know, there are many paths), you WILL impress them with the meal we serve.

Don’t have a “date”? Think outside the box! Your spouse, your best friend, or your family will all be blown away by your new-found skills and feel the love you bring through your thoughtfulness and effort in the kitchen. Throw a dinner party or event and I’ll help you every step of the way!



Cooking Lessons (Private, Couples, or Groups)

Perhaps you’re not preparing for a specific meal but would like personalized, fun, friendly instruction to quickly develop your culinary skills. I’m here to help! From kitchen fundamentals to specific dishes and menus, we’ll partner together to find the perfect plan to get you on your way to becoming a cooking rock star! I’ll provide you with the skills and tricks to get over your fear of the kitchen and guide you to a place where you feel confident enough to cook on your own. I focus on making you feel at ease amid the realm outside your microwave and making the kitchen a place  filled with laughter and love and I relish in watching your smiles and pride grow after putting a fabulous meal on the table. Since I didn’t learn how to cook in a formal way, neither will you, and I believe that brings more art and creativity into the mix and allows us not to take ourselves too seriously if we hit bumps in the road (I ALWAYS burn croutons, it is my fate, and I laugh every time).

Corporate Cooking Classes

Looking for a perk to offer your employees that will help your company stand out, promote team building and even encourage good health? Cooking for Luv has an assortment of cost-effective options for you that have been received with tremendous acclaim at other organizations like yours and that have stood out as truly special “differentiators” for the companies providing them. We have worked with the incredible people of Hulu, Beachbody, RAPP, MPC Technicolor, Whitehouse Post, and Human to bring fun, healthy, and stress-reducing classes to the workplace. 


No kitchen? No worries! Cooking for Luv can teach a raw/no-cook class in any conference room with just a few basic kitchen tools. At Hulu, we do all our classes using only cutting boards, chefs knives, a few kitchen tools, plastic utensils and paper plates.

Personal Chef Services

Too busy to cook?  No problem. I offer in-home personal chef services for individuals, couples, and families to make sure you have delicious home cooked meals ready-to-heat right from your fridge.  I take care of all the meal planning and grocery shopping and then once a week either come to your home to cook (or simply drop off) the meals- all you have to do is follow the reheat instructions, eat, relax, and be happy. My most popular package gets you three full dinners (one main + one side) plus one dessert or snack, and there are often enough leftovers for lunch.

Small Event Catering

We cook badass food for your equally badass friends, in your kitchen or ours. Even the carnivores will be in a blissful food coma.


Beautiful, creative, and insanely delicious plated or family style vegetarian cuisine for your dinner party, BBQ, luncheon, work conference,  baby or bridal shower, party (from cocktail to superbowl) and more! Choose from one of our tried and true party menus, throw one of our signature cocktail parties or BBQs, or work with us to create a completely custom menu. 


We specialize in small events (20 people and under) to ensure the highest quality and luv can be given. Whenever possible, we use the highest quality sustainably farmed or organic produce from local farms and markets, only use humanely sourced eggs, milk, cream, and butter, and whenever possible use humanely sourced cheeses.  While we specialize in vegetarian food, we happily accommodate special dietary requests and have a wide knowledge of vegan, gluten-free, kosher dairy & parve diets.

Recipe and Menu Development

I love crafting the perfect recipe or menu, and not only do I create original work for my cooking classes and catering, but also for aligned brands and publications.  I have developed recipes for Follow Your Heart, Beachbody, Urban Outfitters’ Without Walls,  Spirituality & Health Magazine, and Green Living Magazine.

Contact me for rates and availability.



On-Camera Talent

I am available for all things culinary on-screen for your brand or channel- from cooking tutorials, to hosting, to competitions, to racing around like a chicken with my head cut off in a Restaurant Depot fight to the death (as seen on Food Network’s Food Truck Face Off).
