I'm originally from Boston, MA but have made Australia home for the last 8 years.

This last spring Aliza brilliantly catered a retreat I was a guest on. The food, all vegan, was absolutely delicious, filling, fresh, and consistently served on-time with ease and grace. I could easily tell that Aliza is beyond organized. Her ability to focus in and get whatever task is at hand done - but not just get it done, get it done with love & creativity - was inspiring.
Aliza is an amazing chef. The food she made for the retreat I was on was so creative, delicious, and healthy! It inspired me to cook much healthier foods for myself and even go vegan! Aliza is SO knowledgable about food and just a kind, intelligent, amazing human.
Aliza's food cooked professionally, quickly and beautifully - I felt amazing after eating her creations!
Working alongside Aliza exceeded all of my expectations. Her food creations are not only incredibly tasty, but also her delivery is filled with colour and is beautifully presented. Aliza's food is plant based, nourishes the body and does not lack flavour. What sets her apart is her remarkable ability to adapt to schedules, ensuring a seamless and delightful dining experience, every time. I am looking forward to having Aliza fueling my team at our next project together.
