“Chef Cindy is our "go to" for special celebrations AKA cocktail parties with pizzaz. We call on Cindy when we want to be hands off in the kitchen so that we can be visiting with friends and family instead. We also call on Cindy to keep a corner of our freezer stocked with nutricious and delicious meals for our busy lives. ”

“Peppercorn & Co’s resident Chef Cindy is not only a lifetime foodie, she’s adventurous – meaning when you enjoy her fare, you’re getting both tried and true recipes AND her flair for adapting delicious new taste sensations!
Her talent starts with meeting you, designing a menu and delivering the full turn key service for your occasion. You’ll become the host whose parties everyone says “YES” to. Sadly, you’ll never know whether the guests are coming for the food, or to see you – but in the end, does it matter? My own parties have been so memorable that people are literally still talking about the food years later. I have swallowed my pride and now let my invitees know that “Peppercorn & Co. will be catering”…it seems to work! (and no guilt, 'cause I get to focus on our guests and the rest of the party plan!)”
— Angela Forest
“After I bought Chef Cindy's book "Straight From The Heart" I hired Peppercorn & Co. for the heart-healthful cuisine she specializes in. Her skills in domestic planning were of equal value to me. She planned and organized my shopping, and organized my kitchen, fridge and freezer for me. Her skills are rare in today's market and she is truly a hidden gem.”

“Our office has been using Cindy’s personal chef services for over 4 years and I highly recommend her. Her menu is varied, healthy, creative and absolutely delicious. Chef Cindy is more than happy to work around all sorts of dietary restrictions and uses the freshest ingredients. It’s more convenient and healthier than any other lunch options available for a busy downtown office.
