I am so grateful that I stumbled upon The Hollistic Trick in my chef search for my recent Yoga Retreat! Haley far exceeded my expectations in preparing, cooking, and executing 3 meals a day for our group of 14. Every single meal was absolutely delicious and nutritious. The women and I were continuously blown away by the dishes. From the Pistachio Encrusted Salmon to the Braised Pork to the Pumpkin Teff Porridge, the quality & flavor were outstanding.Haley also was super attentive to those with dietary restrictions and made each and every one of them feel taken care of. Every meal had a vegetarian option or dairy free or sugar free option.I also truly value that Haley sources all of her ingredients from local farms and/or small independent food stores.Her and her assistant, Ellen, did such a beautiful job maneuvering around a small kitchen (with sometimes limited serving plates/utensils/etc) and creating a beautiful atmosphere for each of our meals. I want to book my next yoga retreat now just so I can hire Haley again! More...
I am already planning how to arrange for Haley at my next group retreat! She is a force in the kitchen and a lovely lady to spend an evening with to boot. The meals she prepped and executed for our group of 15-25 people (group size varied over the course of the week) were the highlight of our time at Cuttyhunk Island, on par with the scenery and atmosphere of a spectacular place. It's hard to pick favorites but Haley's salad dressings (seriously -- creamy orange blossom, beet green pesto) and chutneys are really special! I loved her almond encrusted curry salmon. Her watermelon gazpacho made it onto my instagram feed and tasted even more delicious than it looks. And the lamb chops! The best part might be that as a nutritionist, everything she makes is incredibly healthy. I have gallstones that are easily set off by typical meals that are high in fat or hard for my GI system to process. It was a real treat to spend a week having Haley cook and not having to worry about my body feeling tired or weighed down from meals. She cooked for a diverse group of tastes and dietary restrictions (from vegan to meat-lovers) and left everyone feeling thrilled. More...
Haley shines in the kitchen, she's very organized and comes prepared. The meals are delicious and well thought out staying within my dietary guidelines. Works clean and efficiently Haley has a very helpful and friendly attitude and I can't wait to see what else she has in store. All of the meals were put together organized, easy to reheat, and was everything labeled appropriately. Thank you! More...
