This italian phrase, "a good fork", is used to describe people who love to eat! Here are some press clips for Chef Linda Sarris and a few quick reviews from my happy clients.
You know how you never really remember the food at a wedding? Not this one. Days later, raving compliments are still rolling in for The Cheeky Chef’s fantastic feast. We had an oddball concept for food compounded by a cramped kitchen space and an all-white attire theme. Linda took these constraints in stride as she crafted a gorgeous, delicious, and incredibly memorable meal for our 85 guests. Her kindness, enthusiasm, and positivity throughout the process and the day made us so delighted to have her on board.
Once a month I invite friends over for a dinner, so Linda can surprise us with her cooking magic. Not only is her food delicious, she is a delight to have in our home: Always smiling, respectful and with a charm dialed up to 11. I want a lifetime subscription to Linda.
an incredible night with likely the best meal I’ve tasted in 15 years of New York City dining.
We had an amazing in-home cooking lesson with Linda. It was a wedding present from friends, and we were especially excited about the delicious Italian menu she had planned for us because we had just gotten back from our honeymoon on the Amalfi Coast. It was perfect! The meal was incredible and she made the whole experience so fun! She’s the best! We would definitely recommend her to anyone and everyone!!
You did an amazing job last night!! Everyone loved the food. You are a pleasure to work with.
I can’t really say enough about how amazing our night with Linda was. She’s a real pleasure to be around and we had an amazing time making pasta with her. Everything she made was delicious, light, and perfectly cooked. For a unique group dinner, this was an excellent experience. Absolutely recommended!!
If you want a fun chef in the kitchen and killer good tasting food, I’d have this girl every night.
I had an amazing time with Linda. She prepared a clambake that was phenomenal. The lobster roll with mint was the most refreshing lobster roll I’ve ever had.
Linda is our culinary co-conspirator. She brings the perfect combination of organizational excellency, outstanding attitude, creativity, and culinary prowess to all the events and projects she works on. Not to mention, she was trained by one of Sicily’s most celebrated chefs. You want Linda on your team.
Italian food at its best: simple yet flavorful. Made with love. She is also the sweetest person ever, I can’t recommend her enough, just book her!
Once again, Linda is the best! This was our third time working with her and our third time being impressed by her. She’s such a lovely person to have in your home and her food is always super flavorful and expertly prepared. Highly recommend!
Linda cooked for my event and she was BEYOND amazing!! The food absolutely delicious (and beautiful!) and she was able to create a fabulous dinner for 16 in a make-shift kitchen. Not only is she a fantastic cook, but she’s so nice, so helpful, and left the place standing tall. (Also, I think she’s a mind-reader - she literally anticipated exactly what needed to be done before I even had a chance to ask.) I cannot wait to work with Linda again!!
Linda was ridiculously amazing. The food was better than a restaurant. So clean and light. We hand made pasta and fish. She was hilarious and inclusive! But the food. That food. Was so tasty.
The most interesting part of Linda’s skills is the range—she can do hi-low, or low-high. If you want beautifully plated fine dining style cuisine, she’s got you covered. But if you want rustic, family style food, she’s got a pretty full repertoire there as well.
Linda came to cook for a bachelorette weekend. Not only was her food beautiful, delicious and exactly what we wanted to eat, but she’s a great addition to any lady-group! She left the kitchen spotless!
