Khaddy came on board at the launch of Revived Living's bath and body line and played an instrumental role in the creative development. Her ability to take a product I created and paint such a vivid, sensory experience in the client's mind as they were reading the product description was uncanny. She pulls off of all her life experience and training in the arts to offer a fresh perspective, and unique vision that is completely her own. I was fortunate to also experience some of her cooking in this time as well. I have a few food allergies (gluten and dairy), and was such a breath of fresh air to see someone take it as a creative challenge rather than roll their eyes at me, and expect me to eat salad. She was able to create some really beautiful dishes both on the eye and the palate that made me so excited about the possibilities within my restrictions!

Not only is Khaddy a good friend of mine, but we often collaborate on menu ideas for private dinners I hold within my home for my husband's business partners. Khaddy volunteered her time at my husband's birthday party last year, and completely took over my kitchen so I could relax, and focus on the many guests we had that day. Not only did she handle appetizers, but the main dishes, and she even crafted a delicious summertime cocktail, that everyone couldn't get enough of. Our friends and family still can't get over her burgers and how delicious they were. She took on so much responsibility, and she totally did it without me even having to ask. Not only is she an amazing personal chef, but an incredible friend to have.

Khaddy is an AMAZING chef. My first opportunity working with Khaddy was last year for a fundraiser that I was hosting to benefit Rady's Children's Hospital. Khaddy was hired to create over 200 innovative desserts and boy did she deliver. Her desserts not only tasted fabulous, but the presentation was something out of a fine, European restaurant. Not only did she exceed my expectations, but I must say we had an issue with the caterer that evening meaning they did not show up. As you can imagine, the stress level knowing 200 people were showing up and there was no food! I quickly leaned on Khaddy and she completely took charge, and came up with innovative ways to compensate. Until this day, no one even realized that the hired caterer did not show up. I say this because not only is her food amazing, but she is a solid human being who works well with others, is fun, professional, and reliable. I highly recommend Khaddy. She is truly AMAZING all around.

I have been one of the lucky ones to peek into the mind of a chef. In the little time I have known Khaddy, she has blown me away with her constant thoughts of food.
Her food resembles her avid worldly travels and entices your hunger. With her attention to delicate detail, from charred things, to foam, Chef Khaddy aims to please your eyes and soothe your tasted buds.
Chef’s repertoire is endless and her hunger for constant knowledge keeps her above the basic. She challenges herself constantly and anytime she describes a dish to me, it is done in such a way that I can picture/almost taste it, and hope that I am the test dummy to get to try it!

The rice cake was perfect. My aunts said it wasn't too sweet. It was phenomenal. Thank you so much.
