Monica Libertino’s

passion and love for the culinary arts dates back to her childhood.  The fire for cooking was ignited preparing meals with her mother and grandmother for loved ones, neighbors and the occasional “strays”.

These joyful events centered around food, and connecting with those special people…building relationships that will stand the test of time has become a mission for Chef Monica through her Personal Chef services.

Chef Monica was making her own dough for empanadas

at an early age of 10 (way before Goya started selling their infamous discos) and taught neighbors how to make them too.

At an early age she was already making full course dinners for family and hosting birthday parties at home.  She was quite the event/party planner, and this raw talent was cultivated far into her adult years hosting gatherings at home where she honed in on her skills of menu planning, food prep, cooking and hosting themed events to name a few.

Bringing people together to share in those special moments that last a lifetime, and blessing them with mouth watering meals made with love is the key ingredient that made Monica’s events something to look forward to.

Although Chef Monica went to college for business and Information Technology, she was led by the Holy Spirit to pursue a Culinary Entrepreneurship degree and start her own Personal Chef business where she could utilize her creativity and hospitality gifts to bless others. 

She has always loved to feed others, not only her food but the love of Christ within her…HE has blessed me so that I can be a blessing!
