Hi Chelsea! :)
I'm Meg. Thank you for your submission! I would love to be the one to create a magnificent, memorable meal for you all. Full disclosure, I have a cooking class scheduled that same evening at 6 pm and they typically run about 2-2 1/2 hours. I understand your requested serve time is 8. I so apologize for not being able to honor this and understand completely if you wish to choose another chef who IS able to honor that time frame. That said, if selected, I can have your meal ready to be served by 9. I will happily prep the day of in advance and honestly have done so on many occasions when I am double or triple booked, as has been the scenario lately, as it is warming up and people are celebrating! All this aside, I understand you will receive other proposals from other chefs who will be able to honor an 8:00 serve time and I certainly understand if you opt to choose one of them. Honestly, this site is so terrific and host to so much talent, so I'm sure you can't go wrong in your selection. Regardless, thank you for your consideration and taking the time to read this note. If interested, please do not hesitate to both browse my reviews/profile and reach out if you have any questions or thoughts about the menu. I'm open to your ideas and want to hear your thoughts! If it is easier for you to text, please feel free; my number is 347-703-3324. That is my cell and I always have it on me. I will get back to you immediately Chelsea. I hope to hear from you soon because I love what I do and I also love meeting new people, but regardless, best of luck! Whether you choose me or not, I hope your dinner is wonderful!

About Me

Hi!
My name is Meg and I am a classically trained chef who has been working in professional kitchens for the last seven years throughout NYC and Las Vegas. My strengths lie in creating contemporary Italian and French influenced dishes as well as globally inspired modern plated desserts, many of which are pictured below.
Additionally, I enjoy giving cooking classes to both adults and children of all ages (3 yrs and up), particularly children as I feel a lot of useful life skills can be imparted in the kitchen. In a nutshell, nothing brings me more joy than cooking for others and I look forward to the challenge and adventure that each new client brings. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any inquiries. I hope to cook for you soon!

  • Chef Meg was awesome! I planned a surprise dinner and she helped me pull it off flawlessly. She has a great personality and was great to talk to on top of our food being delicious. She suggested a great pinot noir that paired perfectly with our meal. We had the filet mignon as our main course, cooked spot on, but our favorite was the dessert which was the Baileys creme brulee. Overall an outstanding experience with excellent food which made for a perfect evening.

  • What a meal! Chef Meg prepared a perfectly cooked three course meal for our anniversary dinner. She made a beautiful Caesar endive salad with scallops and the best dressing we have ever had (seriously it is incredible!), and then we enjoyed a fantastically cooked duck breast. Her presentation is beautiful and demeanor is lovely as well. She cleaned up every single plate before she left and even regaled us with a few of her stories from her restaurant days. We are grateful that we found Chef Meg and hope to book her again one day!

  • Chef Meg was a true delight! She was so easy to work and prepared a delicious and beautiful meal for a birthday dinner celebration for 12. She was flexible in her meal design and made wonderful suggestions to make sure the evening was a fun, elegant affair. She also brought an assistant with her who helped serve the appetizers, wine and meals so that I as the host could truly enjoy the evening. I will most certainly be using Meg again. Highly recommended!

  • It is such a joy to have a high-end restaurant-style dinner at home. Meg was spectacular and created a meal that was celebratory, delicious, and fun. This is one of the best birthday celebrations that I have ever been involved in. My wife was surprised and over-joyed -- a large part of the credit goes to Meg. The halibut was one of the most incredible fish dishes that I have every had. If you are planning something special, or if you just want to treat yourself and a couple of friends to something really special, hire Meg to be your chef. You won't be disappointed.

  • We celebrated our 16th wedding anniversary dinner with Chef Meg in our home kitchen!!! Chef Meg was awesome, professional, fun, and pleasant for our special day. She paid attention to the details of our request and exceeded our expectations! The food was so deliscious and well plated! I was torn between eating it or just staring at it since it looked too good to mess up with a fork. Oh, but honey it was so good once I dug in!! She was even groovin' to all the old school R&B love jams! I was like ok Meg, get it girl! LOL 🤗🤗🤗 We plan to have Chef Meg back for events with family and friends! Thanks again Chef Meg for making our day extra special!!!💖💖💖

    • Worked on June 17, 2019
  • Meg made us the best meal for my husbands birthday and 4 friends that any of us had in a long time and was an absolute pleasure to have in our home. She catered her offerings perfectly to our requests and far exceeded our expectations. She did it all while managing the time perfectly and left us with a sparkling clean kitchen at the end! I will be hiring meg at every opportunity I have in the future - why go out to a top dc restaurant when meg can bring it to your home! She is extremely talented and I highly recommend her for ANY occasion. She also left us with tons of leftovers that our group was fighting over who got to keep because it was all so delicious.

  • What a phenomenal experience. Chef Meg is a remarkable chef and deserves the accolades she receives. Coordination and communication prior to the dinner were timely and helpful. Meg is incredibly personable, fun, and charming, and her great personality added to the expierience. We chose a 4-course meal, and each dish was spectacularly presented, impeccably timed, and incredibly delicious.... and the crème brûlée, one of our favorite dishes, was seriously the best we’ve ever had! We highly recommend Chef Meg, and we hope to be the beneficiaries of her tremendous culinary skills again!

    • Worked on March 10, 2019
  • Meg was courteous and professionalism and cooked a great meal! She answered all our questions through out the meal and taught us new things and had wonderful stories about her time as a chef that truly added to the enjoyment of the night! Are actively planning another night with friends and Chef Meg!

  • Meg was an incredible chef and teacher! She kept us entertained the entire night, while giving us great cooking tips. This was a surprise for my husband's birthday, and she was the perfect chef for us. The meal was incredible (and her menu ingredients were quite simple) and by the time she left, we were stuffed, with amazing leftovers! We definitely plan on working with Chef Meg again! Thank you for contributing to such a great night, Meg!

    • Worked on October 21, 2018
  • Meg was phenomenal! She went above and beyond to ensure the two of us had a romantic night. I initially was overwhelmed with menu selections but Meg was quick to put me at ease. We spoke a lot over the phone and was able to really personalize the experience, even as far as helping me lay out rose petals! She was professional, entertaining and a great cook! She exceeded expectations and made this experience an exceptional one. If you want a romantic dinner, turn to Meg!

  • Meg was an absolute delight to have in my home! Not only was her food so delicious, she was on time, professional, friendly, and flexible. She went out of her way to accommodate my gluten-free diet and brought flowers which were a cheerful addition to the table she helped me set. I have a newborn and so dining out for my husband’s birthday this year (which fell on a week day) was not an option. I’m so glad I took a chance on this site and connected with Meg. She saved the day and helped to make my husband’s birthday one he will always remember. Can’t recommend her enough!! Better than eating out!!!

    • Worked on June 3, 2018
  • Meg was AMAZING and I would recommend her for a number of reasons. First, she was incredibly flexible when I had an issue come up and had to push to the following night. Second, she arrived punctually and served dinner right on time. Third, the food was absolutely delicious, cooked perfectly, and presented beautifully. Lastly and most importantly, Meg herself is wonderful to visit with and talk to. She is so sweet and a great person, we really enjoyed our time with her! She is someone you want to invite in your home. She made our celebration so much fun and a night to remember, we can't wait to do it again.

  • Chef Meg was a joy to have in our kitchen! She is such a passionate chef and she elevated our 1st wedding anniversary to a very memorable event for us. This was because she was so personable, caring and just a spectacular chef! We will certainly never forget the celebration she brought to us! The endive and sea scallops we stunning to start off with and the scallops were perfectly cooked. The carbonara with the pancetta and the homemade pasta was spot on (the pasta was moist and not dry). The egg on top with the yolk gave the over all meal what it needed to pull it all together. The duck was perfectly seared and the asparagus was delicately prepared. The cheese platter at the end was exactly what we wanted so it was clear she paid close attention to our request. The surprised homemade donuts were absolutely delightful and were a great the next morning with coffee.

    Meg was personable, professional, funny, witty and totally respectful!

    We really cannot say enough good things about Meg. If you hire her, please know that you are in for a fun experience with delicious food, yummy leftovers and beautiful memories!

    Thanks, Meg!

  • Meg was phenomenal! She went above and beyond to make a surprise dinner for my boyfriend’s birthday. She made us feel comfortable and kept us entertained throughout the meal. The donuts were as delicious as they look on her page. I look forward to working with Meg in the future!

  • We absolutely love Meg. She’s fun, quirky, and a unquie person who fits in perfect with our awkward family! Her food is amazing and the family loves her company. She has become more of a friend who cooks for us then a hired chef.

  • I had Meg cook for a dinner party for 12 people and she did excellent work. She was fun, flexible, and most importantly provided delicious food for everyone! She added touches to the meal like edible flowers for garnish that I wasn’t expecting to see at a meal cooked in my home. I will definitely hire Meg again in the future for other gatherings!!

    • Worked on April 5, 2018
  • Chef Meg came to our house for our 10th anniversary dinner. My wife and I couldn't have asked for a more perfect evening. Meg showed up on time and had a delicious meal all ready for us at the requested time. Having an open kitchen / eating area, Meg was fun to speak with and talked to us about what and how she was cooking the food. Meg prepared a delicious caprese to start, filet with a red wine sauce (along with my favorite, garlic mashed potatoes) and the most delicious homemade donuts. The food was spectacular, presented as though we were at a 5 star restaurant. After all that, Meg left the kitchen spotless and all the dishes were put back. It was an incredible evening - couldn't have asked for anything better. My wife and I are looking forward to having Meg back to the house many times in the future - she's a star.

    • Worked on April 11, 2018
  • Amazing experience with Meg. This was my first time using the site so I was a little hesitant. Meg was prompt and thoughtful with every detail. She lent her advice and expertise and just plain fun and down to earth. Food was amazingly fresh and vivid and paired just right with our selection of wine.

    Don’t hesitate to book her for your net event. We will!

  • ***PROPOSAL DINNER WAS A SUCCESS***
    I'm not the type of person who typically writes online reviews, but in this case, I felt especially compelled to give a sincere endorsement to Meg. Seriously. If you have any hesitations on this service, the quality of the food, the ambiance, having a stranger in your home, etc. (and I know I had hesitations about all of the above) she made us feel comfortable and convinced me that I had made the right decision. I asked for help in organizing a proposal dinner and she helped make it an unbelievable and unforgettable night beyond my imagination. She is an incredible chef and a terrific person who truly went above and beyond. Hands down could not have asked for a better experience. She bent over backwards to accommodate my obscure requests and worked with me under a tight deadline. Food was great. She was respectful of our space. She brought all the necessary supplies and cleaned up. Meg is a true professional and I cannot say enough about how lucky we were that we stumbled upon her. I cannot speak to the quality of the other chefs on this site, but I can guarantee that if you go with Meg, you will have an amazing evening.

    • Worked on March 20, 2018
  • Meg was excellent. We posted our event the day before and she accepted it that night, put together a creative menu, and took on the challenge. She was flexible on the menu, kind throughout the process, and cooked a fabulous meal. And she left our kitchen spotless -- truly spotless. Wonderful experience.

    • Worked on March 8, 2018
  • My first experience with tableathome was amazing. I wanted to do a surprise dinner for my girlfriend since we both had to work on Valentine’s Day. My chef Meg was beyond amazing. I was nervous all day and Meg was able to calm me down. Meg was definitely professional and friendly, and made us felt very comfortable, it felt as though we already knew her . We will definitely be seeing Meg more often and recommending her. Meg your food was amazinggggg!!!!!!!!( now my girlfriend wants to eat plants)

  • Awesome! No other way to describe the dinner prepared and served for my wife’s 65th birthday. There were 6 guests, including one vegetarian, to enjoy the celebration. Meg embraced the occasion with a three-course meal, including a main course of baked Alaskan salmon, roasted asparagus and loaded mashed potatoes and culminated with a knockout dessert of freshly made donuts with blueberry lavender glaze. A ratatouille was prepared for our vegetarian. Meg also presented a special personalized treat for the birthday girl. Everyone commented on how good the food was – all plates went back picked clean! Meg was friendly and professional. Prior to the event we had several communications to finalize the menu and logistics. She offered many options which resulted in a sensational meal. She arrived at our house right on time and after a brief overview of the kitchen and dinner she went right to work. Her confidence was immediately evident which was reassuring as I had never done anything like this before. The dinner was served at the designated time and all three courses were delivered flawlessly. Meg was pleasantly interactive with everyone, answered questions about the food/cooking, and easily fit into our family setting and the celebration. At the end – our kitchen was meticulously cleaned – it was almost like Chef Meg was never there.

    To have a wonderful meal in the comfort of home and not worrying about the preparation, cooking and cleanup allowed our family to have hours of precious time together that seems so hard to come by in the busy world of today.
