THE COMPANY

ABOUT CHEF IN BOOTS, LLC

Unofficially founded in Summer of 2016, Chef in Boots started as a simple way for Rebecca to earn extra money while getting settled in Colorado. She found a great family to do part-time Personal Chef work at their vacation home out west and absolutely fell in love with the idea of cooking in a more intimate setting with her clients. As the family came to know Rebecca and discover her cooking, they began to hire her more and more each summer. In 2018, Chef in Boots was officially established.With COVID in 2020, Rebecca decided to take it full time. She saw an opportunity to help the community by providing affordable meal prep. She eventually expanded to events such as weddings, private in-home meals, and other parties. Her strength is her ability to customize any event to your needs!
