Thank You...

After 7 years of food and fun, A Window Opened: Personal Chef & Specialty Catering is ceasing operations.

This adventure has been a wonderful experience on so many levels...personal growth and satisfaction, community involvement, a host of great clients, new friends and connections and a multitude of opportunities to relish local food and culture on a level I did not anticipate when I dusted off my Business Management Degree, wrote up my first business plan and dove into the beautiful and complex world of preparing food for others.

Food was always something that I reveled in on a personal level, but never did I anticipate expanding that love to a larger audience. When I retired from public sector emloyment, I searched for something to stretch my creative side that would allow me to do something I loved and keep me engaged in the world. I wasn't ready to retire...I just needed a new direction and focus in my life. A place that would challenge me and that would allow me to investigate that artistic and creative part of myself that was long dormant. I found a home I didn't know I needed...

I want to thank the Auburn community and surrounding Placer County for giving me a chance and allowing me to come into your homes to prepare fresh and satisfying meals for you, your families and your friends! To celebrate your special occasions and your every-day meals. You all have helped me to achieve something that was wonderful. There were some times when I wondered if I was crazy, but I have to say that overall my experiences were positive and they enriched my life tremendously.

Any outstanding gift certificates that have not yet expired may be redeemed through June 30, 2019. If you happen to have a gift certificate that has expired, please contact me and I will do what I can to offer value for that donation or discuss other options.

My phone number remains (530) 863-7866 and my email during this transition is Living in the foothills, I am often out of cellular range and internet service. Please text me and let me know that you are trying to contact me and I will call you or email you back as soon as I am able.

Thanks for the memories!

With love and wishes for fabulous food always,
