Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value
My wife and I hired Chef Piper for our small, intimate, family wedding and could not have been happier with the food! Chef Piper walked us through the process a number of times in detail and made sure that we were updated at every step re: pricing, staff, and menu details.
Chef Piper is very client-focused and will go out of her way to make sure that she is on the same page as the client. She accommodated multiple menu variations (vegetarian, non-vegetarian, and picky eaters), sourced everything locally, and left everyone stunned with the quality of the dishes prepared.
Although she is new to the Asheville area, Chef Piper already has an exceptional support staff in place. I would be remiss if i did not mention our phenomenal Sous Chef and waiter as well. Together they were able to make the day-of-experience absolutely magical for us.
The process was a bit more hands on than we initially expected but the end results speak for themselves. We highly recommend Chef Piper!
Pipers cooking is freaking amazing y’all got to try her cooking
I hired Piper to cook for my sister's bachelorette party of 20 people, outside of Asheville. We communicated regularly for about 2 months prior to the event. She was consistent in her communication, and always prioritized our needs and preferences when it came to timing, menu, etc.
She made sure to be proactive in her grocery shopping and provided fresh ingredients for our fabulous meal. Piper cooked our meal all day while we were out in the community. Throughout our night, she was personable and flexible to our groups needs. She pulled off the entire event by herself without batting an eye. The food was delicious and our group loved her. I whole-heartedly recommend Piper for your event and meal needs!

My family enjoyed the delicious foods and amazing hospitality in our home while on vacation in Asheville and Black Mountain. On two different dinners, she made amazing foods, all from scratch fresh produce and highest quality proteins. She’s a joy to work with. Detailed. Excellent follow up. An accomplished chef

My family and I travelled to Lake Lure, NC for Easter and I decided to host my gender reveal and Birthday party during our stay there.
I contacted chef Piper 6 months prior to our arrival and we spoke almost every week. She was very responsive. She helped me organize the diner and it was a success. All suggestions she made were definitely life savers. She and her staffs were well organized when they arrived.
The food was delicious and the staff she hired was very professional. we had an amazing time. I recommend her to anyone hosting an event in Asheville/ Lake Lure.
I hired Piper to cook a surprise meal for my girlfriend and me so I could propose. I had her arrive at my Airbnb before I did, so I was a little worried something might not work out, but everything was perfect. She had no problem coordinating with my Airbnb host and she even brought all the necessary pots, pans, and stemware. Her food was incredible and she was more than happy to make everything I wanted. I definitely recommend her!
Chef Piper is an amazing cook. She consistently makes delicious meals -including amazing sauces - each one more delicious than the last. I have three boys all with different palates - one a gourmet, one an average boy eater and the other a very tough customer. Piper manages to make all three happy along with my husband and myself. I am a working mom and by the time I would get home from work and cook dinner and clean up, I was more than exhausted. ( I will also only order in once a week, because no matter how hard you try - you can't find a healthy meal.) Piper cooks dinners for 3 or 4 nights, including salads and sides, and lots of fresh vegetables and all the pots and pans would be washed and put away and my kitchen spotless. She also cuts up snacking vegetables that my kids eat throughout the week and even lunch for me to take to work (like sautéed kale and portabella mushrooms). All I have to do when I get home
is heat up the food (on stove, in oven or microwave depending on the
instructions she leaves) , whisk up the sauce and dress the salad. Piper has changed my life. Dinners are much more leisurely and delicious - and I have so much more time WITH my family instead of in the kitchen.
I hired Piper to cater a meal for two for a sunset sail down the Hudson. She was very friendly and enthusiastic about meal planning. It was all very lovely and delicious
Chef Piper led a private lesson for a steakhouse dinner for my parents and she did a fantastic job delivering a delicious meal. I would definitely recommend her services.
Chef Piper prepared a delicious anniversary dinner with short notice and was very enjoyable to work with. She purchased all the ingredients and provided most of the pots and pans which made the event effortless. She also did a great job cleaning up after the event!
I've known Chef Piper for some time now. She LOVES what she does and it totally shows in her work. Everything she makes is delicious and creative. My family and I highly recommend her.
Piper was amazing. She cooked for me and eight of my best friends on my 30th bday. She is an absolute perfectionist. Communication was on point, she was very professional, and we loved having her with us during the celebration. I would absolutely recommend her.
Chef Piper is truly talented and amazing. Most of all, she listened to my special needs while I was undergoing medical treatments, and designed amazing menus each week. Her method of cooking made everything taste great. Her way of presentation also made us very happy - dishes contain vibrant colors and textures and we all looked forward to tasting her cooking each day. Chef Piper also took time to research recipes, ensure to follow our restricting requests of low-fat, low-sodium and organic ingredients, yet turn out a diverse set of options for the three of us for the week. Her healthy meals was beloved by my 2 -year-old-toddler as well as my parents, and as my husband put it, 'Chef Piper's cooking is better than eating out at a restaurant not only because it's tastier, but much healthier" I highly recommend Chef Piper to anyone, and only wish she is a part of the family permanently!
Chef Piper helped prepare my meal offerings for the New York Fancy Food Show. She was great. Very detail oriented, conscientious, and fair. She is a good person to work with. And her dishes were amazing!
Piper is a great communicator and always pleasant to work with.
What a delightful treat to have such savory plates to compliment the wine at the party the other night...I so enjoyed your selection of really good healthy and tasty choices. You get five stars from me! Thank you Piper, Kathleen Lyons Asheville, NC
Chef Piper Wilder from New York did an incredible cocktail party for me and my friends in Asheville this weekend. Everyone loved all of her savory finger food. I look forward to her catering another event for me.
Piper is a phenomenal choice if you're looking for a personalized experience for a dinner party or event. She is attentive and prompt and listens to every request and detail. I've had her over to cook dinner on multiple occasions - her food is the best I've ever had and she is a wonderful host. I highly recommend Piper and definitely be using her again in the future!
Last night Chef Piper came to my apartment and cooked a romantic dinner for two for my girlfriend and me. The dinner was absolutely delicious... delicious enough that my girlfriend even said yes!!! I couldn't be happier with Chef Piper's demeanor, punctuality, honesty, flexibility... and most importantly, the food! She spent some time with me beforehand working out a detailed plan and menu for a romantic dinner on my rooftop. She prepared a fantastic 4-course dinner, which included some A+ crabcakes, a great seared tuna appetizer, SPECTACULAR seafood linguine entree, and a decadent chocolate mousse dessert. She brought everything and cleaned up spotlessly. I understand that Chef Piper does everything, from dinner parties, to home cooked weekly meals, to fancy dinner parties for large groups. If you are considering any of these, I would recommend you call Chef Piper or visit her website for details or a sample menu. You will not regret it! Thanks again Chef Piper!
I used Personal Chef Piper for a romantic dinner for my wife and I on our anniversary. I was very pleased and happy with the services provided by Chef Piper. The food was delicious and her assistance and recommendation on developing the menu was key. I really did not know what to expect when hiring Chef Piper but she made the process very smooth and easy. I highly recommend using Chef Piper for personal chef services.
Piper made a delicious 4 course brunch for me and my (now) fiancé where I proposed at the end. The food was amazing, specifically her huevos rancheros. Highly recommend!
Chef Piper provided dinner for my band and I when we were in the recording studio. Everyone was pumped about the menu choices she sent ahead of time and absolutely loved the food. It was fresh, healthy, delicious, and homemade! We had spinach salads with bacon and a special dressing, chicken salad, and an amazing batch of brownies to top it off. I will definitely hire her again and look forward to eating her cooking again. Thanks, Piper!
I hired Piper for a surprise dinner for my girlfriend's birthday, and it was a really great experience. I worked with Piper beforehand to set the menu - we ended up with a four course meal and every dish was amazing. Highly recommend to anyone considering something like this.
My family and I have been using Chef Piper's services for a few months and she has been wonderful. The dinners are delicious and healthier than what we would be eating in restaurants or takeout. My children (ages 13 and 11) absolutely love her cooking and she can do anything from turkey meatballs and whole wheat pasta (homemade sauce of course!) to seared tuna with balsamic glaze... Her signature salads are creative and yummy. She has been a pleasure to have in our household. She really wants everyone to be happy - creates special sides for our picky child, etc. I think if you tell Chef Piper exactly what you want (including budget for groceries, etc.), you will be quite pleased at the results.
I have had the pleasure of having Chef Piper help me throw three sit down dinner parties. Just Piper and a server took care of everything for each evening. This is not normally my life style put I find the experience completely worth every cent. As for Piper, I think she is fantastic! She is creative and professional. She is a caring chef who puts the needs of my guests and myself first. She is easy to work with and does a great job. The food speaks for itself and everyone has always loved the food. Piper helps me create menus that I love and fits with my style and taste. She is very flexible and willing to change anything even at the last minute. When she leaves the kitchen it is in better shape then when she arrived. For my birthday dinner I had 7 guests. I didn't have to worry about anything, she knows where everything is and didn't need anything from me. It was as if my guests and I went to a fine restaurant in my own home: we showed up, had an amazing fresh meal cooked to perfection, we relaxed through out the night, we laughed and loved life while the kitchen cleaned up and closed down. I paid the bill and went upstairs to bed. It was great because of Chef Piper.
Piper has been making our mealtimes a joy for weeks. We selected her after staging a cook off between a number of highly recommended personal chefs. She is the best. she has been prompt, attentive to our tastes and need, unfailingly courteous, and whips up some of the most delicious meals we have had in recent memory. She stays within budget and works incredibly hard. We have been using her every other week and she's been wonderful about cooking extra to carry into the next week. I really couldn't be happier.
