Kent and CherylAnn took such wonderful care of us and exceeded all our expectations – and we were not an easy group to cater for: one vegetarian, one gluten-free, three picky kids, some like spice, some don’t etc. Kent and CherylAnn, however, managed to ensure that all of our palates were tickled. The daily menus were an utter pleasure to indulge in and they were even so kind as to return with homemade broth for my sick sister-in-law. Not only are they wonderful chefs but they are also just the loveliest of people and it was a pleasure to share our evenings with them. Thank you.

The most amazing culinary experience ever! Kent and his wife CherylAnn cooked for our big family group during our stay in Chelan, breakfast and dinner every day. They had different themes every day, Argentinian, Mexican, Spanish, Italian! Everything was made from scratch, even the bread. They were incredibly professional accommodating all our requests, they even created vegan and vegetarian versions of all the meals! They even cleaned up the kitchen after every meal, making it the perfect vacay for all of us. It was like having the best restaurants all in our own rental home! I have been coming to Chelan for years, and they have been the best culinary experience I have had! The best! Thank you!!

Kent and CherylAnn provided us with the most exceptional private chef service during our family vacation at Lake Chelan. They cooked for 13 people – including fussy children, Gluten Free, a fussy vegetarian (me!) and the culinary whims of our relatives who are American, English, French and Dutch – with an easy and finesse that set our mouths watering each meal. Their easy-going, yet exceptionally professional, approach allowed them to blend in easily with the family, making the whole experience so much more than we could have asked for. We cannot more highly recommend them. You will not be disappointed by both the service and food – worthy of the best high-end restaurant without all the fuss and attitude! Book them NOW!

It is such a wonderful asset to our community that we have a professionally trained chef. In addition to all of Kent’s preparations being flavored to perfection, every dish is served with the addition of soulful humor. I love seeing someone practicing with true passion. CherylAnn brings grace, beauty, and assistance. All of this in addition to a sweetness that is irresistible. The chemistry that is Kent & CherylAnn is to spend an afternoon of fine cooking delivered with kindness, humor, and love that you simply will not find anywhere else.
