Vacation Chef

Hiring a personal chef when you travel to Seattle, the Puget Sound area, or anywhere in Washington State is not a treat just for the elite. In fact, hiring a party chef at your Airbnb or VRBO will enhance your stay by giving you more free time to explore the area. When we serve as your Suncadia personal chef, come back after a day of golfing to a delicious spread!
When you hire a personal chef for a customized culinary experience instead of a traditional caterer, you will enjoy fresher food, better quality ingredients, and you can see where your food is made. Your home or vacation rental becomes your own private restaurant! 
Our chefs will plan and serve a uniquely Northwest or other style of food experience for you. We can stock your vacation home with any groceries you want, including local foods and drinks. If you are here for a large family gathering, book a chef to take care of everything from breakfast to dinner with snacks in between. You’ll be SO glad you did.

Retreat Chef Services

We also serve yoga retreats, spiritual retreats, corporate retreats, digital detox retreats, writing retreats, adventure retreats, and any other multi-day event.
Let us know what you are planning, and we will design a proposal specific to your retreat needs and goals.

Yes! Our Seattle-area chefs will travel anywhere in the region!

"We had Honest to Goodness cook onsite at our retreat venue for group of 20. They did an outstanding job preparing breakfasts, lunches, snacks, and dinners for 3 days during our yoga and meditation sessions. Each meal was planned to cover our special diets and with detox-cleansing in mind. The entire experience just felt wonderful, special, and worth every dollar spent."

"We had a great evening to celebrate our son’s 50th birthday with Chef Tristina. She was easy to work with and provided great meal recommendations based on our input of family tastes. It was so worth it for me because I could enjoy the evening and not worry about jumping up and down trying to get a special meal on the table. She had lots of special touches and left the kitchen sparkling. Highly recommend this woman owned company."

"Honest to Goodness provided breakfast, lunch and dinner to our 40+ team on a 3-day retreat. Food was delicious, healthy, varied in options, and cognizant of everyone's food sensitivities. Additionally, the chef was professional, enthusiastic, well-organized, and all meals were ready on schedule. I'd love to use her again in the future!"

"I hired Laura to prepare meals for a knitting retreat near Mount Rainier. She easily created a menu that took into account a variety of dietary restrictions -- no small feat! She and Chef Athena came early on Monday to prepare all the meals and snacks through breakfast Thursday. They helped us with the service for dinner Monday and then left clearly labeled trays with instructions for any of the dishes that needed to be reheated. The food was all incredibly delicious! I especially loved the lemon lavender cake and the Chicken Marbella with olives and prunes. I would not hesitate to hire Honest to Goodness for a future event and wished I lived in Seattle and could take advantage of their regular services."

"We had the best experience! Our chef made us 5 delicious meals and made our vacation unforgettable. Our family members are still talking about what a great time everyone had. We hosted about 17 people in a rental house and we didn’t have to worry about anything! Any time we visit the Seattle area again, we will definitely call Honest to Goodness!"
