Steak Plated with Thyme

I have access to bison rib eyes, locally-raised elk and beef. I always strive to let the flavor of the meat stand out and serve medium rare.

What Sets Us Apart

Special requests are our specialty. We can accommodate most dietary restrictions and food sensitivities your group may have. We also specialize in gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian and paleo menus. Looking for good old American comfort food with a healthy twist, we’ve got that covered too.

Quality always matters because a great meal begins with the best ingredients. We hand-select all ingredients for your menus. We shop at Whole Foods Market and smaller independent stores carrying locally-sourced produce, meats, cheese, poultry and more. In season, we shop at local farmers markets and local farms.

 

Sarah was our personal chef for 10 days in Telluride. We were a large diverse family with many tastes and ranging in age from 5 to 80! Everyone was happy! We couldn’t wait to get home to see what wonderful, fresh, imaginative and DELICIOUS food awaited us!! I would recommend Sarah in a heartbeat.

Seafood Paella

Having lived and traveled in Spain, I learned that every region has its take on Paella. I use the freshest seafood I can source and allow the flavors to speak for themselves. Saffron is a key ingredient.

From Italy to New York to Aspen: A Family Reunites

Linda, who lives in Italy, has family from Spain to New York. This holiday season she organized a family reunion at her house in Aspen. The menu was designed to satisfy a hankering for healthy authentic Mexican cuisine, served buffet style. Having lived in Mexico for several years, Sarah had quite a few specialties. The evening started with her signature margaritas with a secret ingredient (only clients are given the secret), and included what they said was the best guacamole and homemade tomatillo salsa they ever had. Fajitas came to the table sizzling. This was truly bringing joy to the table.

Healthy Mexican Buffet:

  • Shrimp and scallop ceviche with three citruses
  • Chef Sarah’s signature guacamole, homemade chips and salsa
  • Tortilla soup with black beans, corn and chicken
  • Chicken and steak fajitas with queso fresco
  • Shrimp and roasted veggie enchiladas with tomatillo salsa
  • Rice and black beans
  • Caesar salad with lemony dressing made on site
  • Khalua flan

Absolutely fabulous. Every course was perfection and you are an absolute pleasure. Thank you for making this a perfect evening.

Pizza

Some of the best pizza I’ve had was in Costa Rica where the Italian expat population thrives. I make my dough from scratch and let it rise twice. Gourmet pizza night where clients choose from an array of creative toppings is one of my most popular theme menus

She made herself available last minute and cooked a fabulous meal for our family while on a recent trip to Aspen. Her Tuna Poke was AMAZING...my favorite!

Barramundi Pangasius

I always ask clients to allow me to shop and select what is fresh and seasonal, especially when it comes to fish. I prefer wild over farmed. The secret to great fish is not overcooking it.

Sarah and her team are WONDERFUL! Her meals are not only an absolute treat but leave you feeling good afterwards! Sarah worked with us to fine tune our perfect menu and was more than accommodating to meet all the dietary needs of the group. Flourish to Thrive—outstanding in their field and a JOY to work with!!

Roasted Veggies

Summer is the time for farmers markets in the Roaring Fork Valley and a Sunday trip to the Basalt farmers market inspired this simple preparation of roasted summer veggies

With two working parents and a toddler, our family is truly lucky to have Sarah cooking for us once a week. Her food is exceptionally delicious and takes the wholesome taste of real home cooking to a higher level.

Chili Relleno

Chili relleno is one of my favorites and I get chilis locally. I skip the breading and frying for a tastier fresher preparation with queso fresco, pico de gallo and pine nuts.

She taught our kids how to make California rolls and they loved it! She had a great menu planned and everything was delicious and creative.
