“My experience with Chef Ken is 5 star all the way! I have used Whistling Gourmet on a few different occasions, from a small casserole for a baby shower, catering for a corporate event, and my latest request; creating a unique snack that fits perfectly to my nutrition numbers for meal prepping. I have no problem referring Chef Ken to any of my friends, family, or business accounts.”
“Ken has provided food for the ladies’ Christmas brunch at our church and gotten rave reviews. He is a creative chef, always making everything from scratch and going to the extra effort to make it attractive as well. You sense the joy he has in the process. Not only is he a great chef, he is a ‘people person’ and takes pleasure in working with you to provide what you need for any occasion. I highly recommend him.”
“Chef Ken is fantastic. He came to our home and cooked several delicious meals that we could enjoy over a two week period. On our cook day, our house smelled amazing and we could hardly wait to heat our first meal. From food prep, to cooking and cleaning afterwards, Chef Ken is top notch all the way. Highly recommend his services!”
