About Chickadee

Out of a lifelong passion and love for food, came Chickadee Epicurean.  My journey of creating food that is beautiful to look at and equally beautiful to eat began at a very young age.  I remember the moment my Polish Grandma, Stella, helped me create my very first pierogi;  that is when my journey began! 


I started as a personal chef in Indianapolis and Detroit and spent much of my first professional cooking years travelling and learning as much as I could; from there my passion and my business has grown into what it is now.  I believe cooking, like any art, comes from your heart.  Everything I make is passionately, thoughtfully and lovingly prepared.


I would love the opportunity to talk with you about your event and help plan an unforgettable and unique experience.  I am thankful for the gift I have been given and I am excited to share it with you!
