RAVE REVIEWS
Chef Lisa created magic on her plates...her passion and energy is contagious! I have Business clients over a few times a month and have had Lisa prepare all of our fine dining meals. She writes menus so unique and each menu is different {which is just mindblowing]! It simply is amazing what she can do..From the moment she walks in until she leaves, truly a proffessional beyond anyone. 5 star dining combined with exceptional service beyond imagination. I have been using her service over 2 years, I barely go to a restaurant anymore for anything. My business meetings are always a success and I can do what I want because Im in MY house!

Genevieve Phillips Boyer reviewed Personal Chef Lisa Pucci Delgado — 5 star I hired Chef Lisa to do a romantic dinner for my husband and I for his birthday. We love trying new restaurants and my husband is a total foodie, so I thought what a perfect gift. Lisa delivered an amazing dining experience in our home. Each course brought incredible flavors accompanied by a wine and beer pairings. Chef Lisa was professional and so friendly we would have her back anytime. So worth it! Thank you Chef Lisa!

Jeanne Simpson reviewed Personal Chef Lisa Pucci Delgado — 5 star I wanted to do something special for our anniversary and since my husband and I are big foodies, we decided to do a private, romantic dinner complete with wine pairings. Lisa came up with a fantastic menu and we were not disappointed. She has a great personality and it comes through in each of the dishes. I could go on and on, but the reality is my review won't do justice to the food or the experience. We will be looking into other services Lisa provides. Hire her now, you will not be disappointed!

Personal Chef Service by LPD
Executive Chef/Owner

Like any artistic profession, cooking requires inspiration, once I have found my inspiration, it includes classic and modern techniques such as juicing, pickling, sous vide, and molecular gastronomy to bring out the flavors of my dish. As a chef there is nothing better than to show your love of food and flavors to the palates of others. I am on a continued journey of knowledge as a chef to learn new techniques to be able to create new culinary experiences for my clients and myself.

Growing up in the restaurant industry with my parents who are both CIA Culinary graduates, we owned and operated several restaurant and catering businesses. I moved on to be a part of the opening of the Hilton Columbus in 1998, Easton Town Center, a five star hotel in the greater Columbus, Ohio area where I managed the restaurant, room service and banquets; five years after, I managed at PF Chang's China Bistro for 5 years while employed, I assisted in the operation in Aladdins Eatery before starting my Personal Chef Business part time in 2006,  full time in 2009.
