Hannah knows that a perfect meal engages us on every level of our being...mind, body, and spirit

Hannah understands that a meal is about more than just eating. The food will be amazing...fresh, local, seasonal, thoughtfully prepared and presented. But what really makes Hannah a special chef - and host - is the overall environment and experience she creates.

Nick Gardner, Co-founder, Watershed

Hannah always surprises me with something more delicious than the last.

She is so creative, always inventive and coming up with the most unique flavors that taste SOOO good and you don't feel guilty eating any of it because it is all so fresh and nutritious. I also had the amazing fortune of having Hannah make the appetizers for my wedding. She took such care with every dish and the presentation was just gorgeous. She literally took my breath away.
