Coming from a background in visual art, I view food on many levels. Immaculate and
precise presentation intertwine with a taste conjured from a knowledge of ingredients and knowing all the rules of culinary art well enough to break them time and time again.

Classically trained in French technique, I enjoy creating and drawing from every culture. I also specialize in vegan and vegetarian dietary needs while also working within frames ranging from the traditional to the most odd of fusion. Every dish can be tailor made to fit your taste down to the last spice.

I love cooking and it's my passion. If you find yourself at a loss of time to prepare fresh, homecooked meals for yourself or your family, allow me to take the reins of your stove and dazzle you time and time again! Read less

As a vegetarian and in working with a strict and small budget, I was extremely happy when I first found Artfully Delicious. Chef Kriss met with us and explained that they are the only caterer in Chicago to work with clients on a sliding scale and can work within any budget. Pricing Artfully Delicious against other caterers and comparing their menu against other caterers (who seemed to only offer the 'chicken or fish' option), we were very excited to hire them even though they were not as experienced or had many online reviews available.

That said, I have to advise brides to only hire this caterer if you are extremely detail orientated and are OK with going through every step with this caterer. This is not someone you hire and then just trust to have everything set up the day of the event. We signed the contract with about 10 months before the wedding them but had to make quite a few adjustments to the contract (and price) only a few months before the wedding because they did not call the reception venue before writing out our contract to make sure they had the proper licensing and insurance paperwork. We also had continuously go over details such as the dish rental order and find our own ice vendor (luckily we asked about ice or we would not have had any!). Most caterers that are a little more 'by the book' would give you a lot more peace of mind but if you want something a little more interesting and are willing to be patient with going over small details, I would recommend this caterer.
