Describe your business. Did you find it, or did it find you?

Culinary Comfort provides clients with a personal party chef in the comfort of their own home. Whether it’s an anniversary dinner for two, a large cocktail party, or a sit-down dinner for 10, I will do the cooking, serve a four-course meal and clean up—all in my client’s own kitchen. I meet with the client and help them develop a menu based on their theme or special food requests, and then do all of the shopping. I am talented at adapting recipes according to any food allergies or dietary requests a client or guest may have, as well as providing clients with “clean” food and homemade recipes. I have always loved to cook and get creative in the kitchen, so it was only natural for me to “find” this business. I had wanted to start my own business but couldn’t decide what to do, then decided to turn my passion for making people happy through food into a business.

Who is your role model in business or in life, and why?

My family. The Portuguese side of my family has always been hard-working and great at cooking. I have so many great memories in the kitchen surrounded by good food, laughter and family.

Where do you go when the going gets tough?

Sometimes I like to take a drive down a country back road, but for the most part I turn to my husband. He is my biggest fan and supporter. We go to the gym and work out the stress.

What’s your favorite place to eat out locally?

It depends what I’m craving. There aren’t many places I go to all of the time since we love trying new restaurants; however, one of the places we frequent (when we crave tacos) is Los Gallos Taqueria in Lincoln. It’s the best, and they also have a little market that makes fresh pastries and bread daily.

And finally, customer service is…?

The most important aspect of a business. Without customers there would be no business.
