Professional Chef & Premier Caterer

Meet Chef Renée

I have always enjoyed food, especially good food. I grew up in a household of seven and can recall one of the dinner table rules, “You can’t leave the table until your plate is clean.” Was that supposed to be punishment? I loved it! Still do. I clean my plate every night. Eat your veggies. Old school, old rule! I made that up, but it sounds good so I’m leaving it here.
