“I have had the pleasure of experiencing Lisa’s food on many occasions as a guest in Chalet Amazon Creek. I am always impressed with how much care is taken in planning our menus, which contribute hugely to making our stay so special. Lisa’s food is nothing short of amazing. She cooks and presents to a Michelin star standard night after night, but without a brigade of chefs hidden away in her kitchen! Lisa’s skill and attention to detail make it very easy to recommend her to anyone who loves food.”

Paul-Anthony Viollet, London

“Lisa’s skill and attention to detail make it very easy to recommend her to anyone who loves food.”

“Lisa’s culinary talents are vast. She creates fabulous presentations of organic, gorgeous food which taste delicious. Lisa’s choices are varied and innovative. I wish I could eat her food all the time!”

Nita Kaplan, London

 

“We have had the pleasure of Lisa’s culinary skills for a couple of years now for our annual ski week and I have to say without exception, she has never given us a dish which has not been of the highest standard. Her attention to detail, focus on flavours and skilled execution makes for a wonderfully indulgent dining experience. ~ We are a fussy group, often hard to please, however, her cooking and hosting skills are not only faultless but also charming and we have returned year after year because of her. ~ We wish her all the very best in her new venture, and cannot commend her highly enough.”

Eileen Doyle, Hospital Director

 

“Lisa has taken care of us on several occasions from breakfast through to dinner and even catering dinner parties for our guests in Chamonix. She has been an outstanding chef offering several dishes per sitting and taking in her stride the various preferences of our very demanding groups. ~ She has done this with considerable culinary skill but most importantly with charm and humour. We have always requested Lisa on our annual visits to Chamonix and the testament to her abilities is that none of us has ever lost weight skiing. Quite the opposite! ~ For many of our group the food is the highlight of the week and stealing her recipes. I’d recommend Lisa wholeheartedly.”

Shailendra Kumar & Family & Friends, London

 

“...the food is the highlight of the week and stealing her recipes. I’d recommend Lisa wholeheartedly.”

 

“Lisa is an absolute star. Despite assembling the widest range of food requirements possible, she produced superb cuisine every night. On our return from skiing there was cake with separate DF and GF for those with special requirements, whilst the dinner every night was exceptional and somehow met everyone's different requirements. A true magician.

After two weeks of Lisa's cooking my trousers appear tighter than they were before the holiday but someone told me it is possible to have less than three slices of her Victoria sponge cake. I find it best to ignore such foolish advice. If you are fortunate enough to enjoy Lisa's cooking you will be very very satisfied. A great cook and a wonderful person.”

Richard Harwood, Guernsey

 

“Lisa is an absolute star... If you are fortunate enough to enjoy Lisa's cooking you will be very very satisfied. A great cook and a wonderful person.”

“Lisa you were the best! We really enjoyed your perfect balanced 5 course menu at our private dinner in the chalet. Thank you so much! See you next time.”

Doutzen Letschert, Amsterdam

“We are lucky enough to have had Lisa cook for our family for 2 consecutive summer holidays - we were so happy with her last year, we invited her again this year (and are already thinking about next year)! Lisa consistently provides wonderful, varied and thoughtful meals for the whole family, making the best of the available ingredients. From fresh and varied salads using local specialties at lunch, through to home-made children's tea-time favourites and on to high-end, beautifully presented three course dinners, she never disappoints and has the ability to surprise and delight time after time - Lisa is reliable, flexible and uses her initiative (even in unfamiliar kitchens and countries), which makes for a fully stress-free experience.”

Martin Thorney-croft, London

 

“We engaged Lisa to cook for us during our recent two week stay in Chamonix-Mont Blanc. Her menu was modern and innovative without being pretentious and outlandish. Lisa was extremely accommodating with our dietary needs and as the weeks went on adapted the meals to suit our tastes. The food itself was delicious. I started the holiday determined not to indulge in dessert, but as one mouthwatering pudding after another was served up with rapturous sighs as they were consumed, I had to give in. The ginger creme brûlée was simply the best I have ever tasted. On Lisa’s nights off, we went to Munchies and Cap Horn in Chamonix. Both restaurants are among the best in the town, but we had all been spoiled by her cooking and the experience in both restaurants was not as satisfying as it had been on previous visits. Lisa was welcoming, kind and down to earth as well - all qualities that are invaluable for someone who spends so much time in the home you are renting. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone. She should really open a restaurant, although if she does, that would mean we wouldn’t be able to hire her again and that would be so disappointing.”
