We can't say enough amazing things about Lea, at The Passionate Plate. My kids have food allergies to gluten, dairy and soy. These allergens are some of the hardest ones to eliminate when cooking. Lea has found a way to make tasty and healthy alternatives for our lifestyle; with beautiful soups, gluten free pasta dishes and tasty proteins to pair with rice and vegetables. Because of Lea, we no longer feel as though we are missing out on restaurant food. She offers recipes of her own, or can tweak a personal recipe to suit your dietary needs. Her creativity, kindness and culinary knowledge, has made her a blessing to our family.

The food is absolutely delicious!! When we come home, the kitchen is immaculate, smells delicious, and there is an entire refrigerator full of food. When it is time for us to eat, I have no idea what to eat first. I am in food heaven! Your service had an extremely positive effect on the way we function as a family in the evenings. We feel very fortunate to be able to sit down every night to a professionally cooked meal without all the stress of preparation and clean up. To top it off, you have broadened our taste palates! I have also referred several friends, telling them all the good things that have come from your service. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

I don't cook. I burn toast and my casseroles are soupy. I wish it was different but it’s the truth. My husband plays professional baseball and it’s vital he gets the best nutrition he can. With that being said, he can't live off burnt toast and watery casseroles so we were super happy when we found sweet Lea. On both a personal and professional level, she's everything we could want in our kitchen.

Plain and simple Lea knows food. She knows how to make any dish pretty and it doesn't just LOOK good, it IS good. Honestly, I never realized how important presentation is, especially with two small toddlers, but since having Lea, they now request her famous meatballs and pumpkin chili. I honestly think they have a greater appreciation for food (real food!) thanks to Lea.

She simply understands nutrition. This is another huge reason why we are so grateful for her help. She understands what the body needs and why. Cooking for her is much more than mixing and tasting, creating and eating. She wants us to understand nutrition better and how it can affect our bodies, both internally and externally. She understands food allergies, picky toddlers, weird diets, strange requests and quickly adapts to the family’s needs. We simply adore her.
