I am so happy to have found Chef Karen! I am a nervous hostess and tend to obsess and overprepare whenever I am expecting company. This year for my daughter's birthday we invited friends from school and her whole softball team which totaled about 25 people. I asked Karen to help me with this and I am so glad I did. She prepared pulled pork in crock pots to serve with yummy Hawaiian rolls. She also prepared ziti that I baked just before our guests arrived. It was perfect AND affordable and allowed me to enjoy my company instead of stressing. Our guests all enjoyed the food and I doubt that I will ever stress over entertaining again as long as Karen can help me! --Trish G., Alamo, CA
Karen's personal chef services added just the right touch to my birthday party! Very professional in the kitchen and cleaned up, so I didn't have to. The food was amazing! My favorite of hers has always been the chicken piccata and she did not fail to amaze. Thanks Karen for making my day so special!

Karen is a talented, competent and professional chef who prepares and presents delicious food. She helped us put together a menu of hot and cold appetizers for about 50 people at my Mom’s 80th birthday party. Some of my favorites: strawberry and avocado salsa with cinnamon wheat tortilla chips, asparagus wrapped prosciutto, caprese bites, hot artichoke dip…is your mouth watering? The food was paced throughout the afternoon so the table always looked fresh. I highly recommend her for your next party!

"I asked Karen to cater a brunch at my home for 8 people. She was such a pleasure to work with, asking about food preferences and restrictions and creating a menu to make sure I got exactly what I wanted and needed. The food arrived right on time, piping hot (and instructions were left on how to heat up if we weren't eating right away) and the presentation was beautiful. The food was rich and delicious and better than I could have hoped for. She took the time to bring flowers and make sure everything was perfect. She included everything I needed to serve and keep things easy for me, so I could focus on my guests and not worry about prep or too much clean up. I can't wait to work with her again!"

I have used Karen Norton to prepare my Bunco party dinners. There are between 8 to 12 ladies who attend. It is so nice not to worry about cooking and cleaning all day. I get my house ready and Karen arrives with all the food, from appetizers to dessert! Everyone always comments on how tasty everything is and no stress for me! I highly recommend Karen for any of your party needs!

Karen, just want to Thank You so much for helping out with our son's graduation dinner. We had no idea how long the ceremony was going to last and it was nice to come home and have dinner ready for the group. The pulled pork and salads where a big hit and everyone came back for seconds. We really appreciate the time and detail you spent with helping us out for the evening. I will definitely call you up when we need another small event dinner. Thanks again!!

As a busy professional with a family always on the go (especially with two boys playing sports 5-6 days/week almost year round), we were very thankful for the introduction to Karen and her Weekly Dinner Service. Karen’s weekly dinners have been a huge help with our busy schedule and we couldn’t be happier with the actual dinners she delivers. There is a constantly changing menu that provides a good selection every week and Karen has been great with allowing us to modify/customize our orders to the number of family members partaking in the meals each week as well as fitting the delivery times into our schedule. We are not sure what we’d do without Karen’s Weekly Dinner Service (besides eat out yet another couple nights a week J). I’d highly recommend Karen’s Weekly Dinner Service to anyone interested in some great, healthy, home-cooked meals delivered to their home
