Testimonials

Cindy created an absolutely amazing experience for our 50th birthday celebration. Every aspect of the presentation was elegant and appropriate, including Cindy and her assistant. The food was out of this world. Every tiny aspect of every course was perfection. Creative and delightful treats from beginning to end. Most importantly though, Cindy herself was so much fun to plan and host the evening with. She is a delightful and amazing person. Thank you for a wonderful memory for the entire family Cindy.

Cindy and her team were absolutely wonderful for our intimate wedding! Couldn’t have asked for a yummier meal or a better catering experience! Trusting in her fully, I asked Cindy to serve her show stopping menu and she really blew us away with her culinary vision. My entire family raved about the experience and we will be working with her again!

My son just had the most beautiful wedding dinner and farewell barbeque by Cindy Dollar. This is my family’s second time with Cindy as our chef and I can promise you, we will be taking special vacations to Santa Barbara just to experience her impeccable gourmet cooking, magnificent presentation, and, best of all, her adorable, brilliant 10-year-old daughter as an additional server. Every thing was exquisite, as always. It doesn’t get any better!

“My family was coming to Santa Barbara this past August for a family reunion. We wanted to have a chef come into our vacation home and cook several dinners for us, I found Cindy’s Healthy Creations on the “personal Chef” website. After speaking with Cindy and discussing what I was looking for, she had great suggestions and I knew she would be perfect for what we were lookng for. She was extrememly easy to work with and her meals were excellent! Our dinners ranged from 12 to 19 individuals and everyone loved all of her meals! The next time we use her services, we will also have her prepare our breakfast and lunches! She really made our vacation, Thank you, Cindy!”
