“August of last year (2018) my family did something nearly four years in the making, we took our very first family vacation to Isle of Palms, SC. After careful research we opted to rent a home right on the beach. Our vacation was so many years in the making because I am a single mother of twins. My twins were born in November of 2014, and my daughter was never supposed to survive. She wasn’t supposed to go outside, let alone see the beach. Well, she fought her way out of the NICU, she fought her way off of a ventilator, and finally her health was stable enough to consider the major undertaking of traveling 450 miles to another state. We recruited two nurses to split shifts with the family and knew that going out for dinner was impractical. I asked our rental company liaison for private chef recommendations and he recommended Chef Kelly.Read More

Throughout the process of planning our meals Chef Kelly was open to my ideas and remained flexible with his offerings. We had numerous call/email exchanges and ultimately we decided on a menu that featured rack of lamb one night and shrimp pesto the next night. Both nights the food was delectable! Chef Kelly was engaging, yet unobtrusive. He was kind to my family and my twins. One night my daughter had a more difficult evening and he was not flustered by her “medical care team” in action. His kindness and culinary skills allowed us to enjoy this special time introducing two little people to the beach. We can’t thank him enough and would certainly highly recommend his services to anyone enjoying a beach getaway.

I am happy to serve as a reference and wholeheartedly enjoyed this beach experience, in part made possible by the meals Chef Kelly produced!” Read Less
