Custom Itineraries are a wonderful way to celebrate girls getaways, retirement, bachelorette parties, multi-generational reunions and small group retreats.

I couldn’t let my day start without letting you know how amazing our experience was last night with Chef J and her wife, Danielle. From the moment they walked into the house they were accommodating, efficient, and completely professional. What made the experience so much better was how warm and kind they were to all of us. There are no words that can describe how great our meal was, Chef J exceeded all of our expectations. That was quite possibly one of the best meals we have ever had, and every little detail was well thought of and perfectly executed. The ingredients were fresh and the flavors were bursting with greatness. The overall evening was a smash hit and we wouldn’t change a single moment. We can’t thank you, Chef J, and Danielle enough for such a magical night. I will be sure to book again with y’all in the future next time we come to town. Again, thank you so much!
