Janet Davis is an amazing chef and business professional. I had the opportunity to collaborate with her for a company office event which turned out to be a major success. Prior to and on the day of the event, Chef Janet was a pleasure to work with. She was attentive to all details and exuded a passion for her work. She provided me a diverse amount of food options for the menu. The end result was completely delicious. I have already contracted her for another event. Thank you Chef Janet for being a partner to us. I am extremely happy to have met you!

Dear Janet, Thank you so very much!!! It was so good and a very big hit! I'm not a pasta person but that I enjoyed. I will be keeping you in my thought when I should need something and so glad that I met you. Continue feeding others in a special way with your special talents and touch with food.
May God bless you and many thanks again for sharing your recipe with me.
I enjoyed your workshop at the Restaurant & Foodservice Show. It was the only workshop I attended. You gave us great pointers and I left with a few new and exciting ideas on how to diversify while staying the course.
We absolutely loved it. Chef Janet was amazing and really helped provide the exact experience I was looking to achieve. I work for the food network and have a lot of history dealing with chefs and I have to say that chef Janet was the pinnacle of professionalism. The food was outstanding and her ability to work with me on curating the menu made everything easy. I highly recommend Her to anyone looking for a great dining experience.
My wife and I had our 2nd year anniversary at our apartment and it was a awesome experience. Chef Janet was on time, the food was just out of this world, had great conversation, she left our kitchen spotless, and we even had leftovers. She made the experience the best in the world. Her food was a 5 out of 5, Service was a 5 out of 5 and overall Satisfaction was a 5+. Looking forward to using Chef Janet again in the near future and would recommend her to anyone.
Janet was fantastic! We were celebrating my husband's 50th, and seeing that Janet's specialty was Authentic Jamaican cuisine, we used that as our theme. We decorated in the colors of Jamaica, and we dressed the part too. Everything she prepared was delicious, from the citrus salad, to the potatoes and the short ribs, and even the bread pudding was amazing! I would definitely highly recommend Janet to others!
Last Sunday, Janet cooked up an unforgettable evening for a group of eight. She was exceptional in every dimension: Her cooking was of course delicious, the preparation, presentation, and clean-up were all seamless, and she acted, dressed, and spoke with a high level of professionalism.
Though all the food was incredibly tasty, highlights included the thin-cut beef ribs in pineapple and teriyaki sauce, the sweet plantains, and the Jamaican rum cake with vanilla ice cream for dessert. Janet even gracefully accommodated our last minute request to repare an additional salad (at no extra charge) in order to cater to a vegetarian in the party.
Overall, we would book Janet again in a heartbeat. The only reason I wouldn't highly recommend her to others is because we selfishly want her all to ourselves and know she is going to be high
in demand in the future!! Thanks Janet!
Delicious meal. Janet is friendly, professional, and wonderful to work with. She showed up a couple of hours in advance and had everything she needed. She didn't require anything from us at all. She provided great advice and direction in decorating and setting the table. And the meal was delicious. In particular guests commented on the potatoes and the short ribs. We will ask her to return to create another delicious meal.
Janet you are an absolutely Amazing Chef & woman! Thank you for making my daughter's wedding a huge a success with your delicious cuisine! I simply can not say enough! Your work was above & beyond expectations! You were so easy to work with, highly professional, & so upbeat & fun! Of all the worries a mother has in her daughter's wedding day, you were like a breath of fresh air performing your magic with no questions asked! You will become highly recommend by myself & I may be calling on you even if I do not have an event planned! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
Well...where do I begin? Chef Davis replied almost immediately to my initial message and I have
to say, her detailed and thoughtful response, not to mention her sample menus had me convinced already that she was the ONE!. I was looking for a personal chef to cook for my
sister's bachelorette party (15+ women) and who would be flexible with the menu since I
wanted to include all of her favorite dishes.
Chef assisted in the selection for the menu because she literally could do anything I asked for! Another 5 stars for flexibility and making clients happy!!!
Let's fast forward to the day of the event, she arrived ready to cook and had absolutely no problem with anyone watching or asking her questions as she worked. Within 10minutes the house had the most beautiful aroma, and frankly I couldn't tell you if it was the crab cakes with the mango sauce, the 4cheese macaroni and cheese or the short ribs with pineapple teriyaki sauce! Wow Wow Wow! Now imagine how all of those items sound, when I say they melted in my mouth, I am not exaggerating. To Complete the meal imagine the most delectible, salted Caribbean rum frosted chocolate cupcake! We were literally left without words. The women were so impressed by everything that graced the table!
Chef Davis is truly a master in the kitchen the balance of all the flavors paired with her friendly, fun and professional personality was a wonderful addition to our evening. I am looking forward to my next event with Chef! Thanks again for everything!!
Thank you, Chef Janet for an amazingly flavorful and wonderful event Saturday night! All of our guests LOVED the food, ESPECIALLY the crab cake!!! Hope we are lucky enough to catch you on
an available night again sometime soon!
We had such a great experience with Chef Janet! She was great about confirming everything in advance, arrived early, was incredibly organized, and cooked an absolutely delicious meal. We asked for a gluten-free bbq meal (using the grill) and she came up with a creative
menu and our guests loved it. We will definitely work with her again and would highly recommend her to others.
Everyone is still commenting on how they liked your food presentation and how delicious it was.
I am looking forward to setting another event with you closer to the holidays.
I would give Janet more than 5 stars if I could. Her professionalism and cooking skills were entirely top notch. Janet delivers on her promise for a flavorful and mouthwatering meal (the beef ribs and chicken were amazing). Honestly one of the best meals I've had in years. Thanks for helping to make the night so special, Janet!
Janet was awesome! She cooked up a storm, was super nice, and even made some salads and side dishes using with the stuff we had in the fridge. Highly, highly recommend her in the future and I
will use her again.
