WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING!
Mark Moore CEO Mana Nutrition
Connie Gordon has a true gift. She is an artist in the kitchen. She was our
in-house chef at an institute I attended in Boulder and she out did herself and
wowed us with every meal. She is creative and mixes fresh and healthy
ingredients and still makes it tastes like it HAS to be terrible for you;-)
Moreover her food tastes better cause she is fun, joy-filled and makes you
want to like her food. Fortunately that's not hard. If you like to cook and
you can steal her recipes from this site you have stumbled onto a gold mine!
Connie is amazing and I hire her every chance I get. I've hired her to
cook dinner's on a weekly basis for gatherings of 40+ people and had her
cater lunches and dinners for multiple days for events I've put
together. The quality of the food is amazing, always fresh and
handpicked from the grocery store. She also is very able to cook for any
food restrictions! Not only has she provided everything we needed for
each event but she also now bakes for us whenever we need to make small
gifts to bring to offices around Colorado as a way to make a great first
impression. Any needs I have, I know I can count on her. She definitely
takes the stress out of planning events, parties, or gifts. If you have
any questions or would like a second opinion about Connie please don't
hesitate to call me…

I feel lucky at home that I often get to enjoy local-raised delicious food from
ourselves and farmer neighbors in our part of Vermont. I was pleasantly
surprised at how hard Chef Connie worked to bring in local, organic when possible and
down-right scrumptious ingredients. I can proudly say I ate healthy and well.
"For most of 2012, Chef Connie has prepared incredible dinners once a
week for the community at the The Village. These dinners would range
anywhere from 10 to 40 people, and the food always succeeded in delighting
guests and bringing them together. Connie's cuisine is versatile, spanning
from delicious Pad Thai, to the best pizzas ever, to mouth-watering
Peruvian dishes. What's more, she's good at working with diet restrictions
and special requests, and her desserts tended to elicit rounds of applause on a
regular basis. It's our true honor to work with Connie, and she's
brought more to our community than I think she knows."

"Chef Connie's food and care make you realize that love truly goes through the
Chef Connie's cooking made me realize how good healthy food could taste. Our company
hired her to cook three meals a day for a six week business boot camp. She
cooked delicious meals for over 30 people every day, making sure to take the
various dietary preferences and restrictions in mind. Connie was especially
conscious of our international participants and made sure to cook dishes from
each of their countries. Not only was the food incredibly tasty, but it was all
very healthy as well; all of our participants in the business camp looked
forward to eating every day!
In addition to the daily meals, Connie
cooked for several of our large events with 100+ people. The food was delicious
as always and her cooking was a big hit. I would highly recommend Connie for any
cooking events, you'll be glad you chose her!
