Arianna - Boulder, CO
There is a difference between a work of art that moves you with emotion and tells a story without need of words, and an imitation of that same piece, where the strokes and colors have been mimicked. I believe it to be the same with food. Food prepared with intention, and from ingredients cultivated with the purpose of nourishment from earth-to-body is a richer experience than that of a recipe simply reproduced. Shadi Ramey is an artist and storyteller through the food she creates. Her passion is conveyed through a lovely gastronomic experience, and there is depth and nourishment in her foods that I can only imagine is linked to her dedication of knowledge and an innate understanding of food as a beautiful and essential life force. My experiences with Ms.Ramey have inspired this form of praise without exception.


Evelyn - Chicago, IL
We hired Shadi for New Year's Eve and had her cook Asian fusion for 22 people. We had heavy eaters so we had her do a ton of appetizerss during cocktail hour and then did family style for our main courses. We had people there with gluten and diary allergies and everyone was accommodated. The food was great and coming from Chicago where we reside, that's saying a lot as we are not easy to please. Everything was top-notch quality and they cleaned before they left. I would recommend using Shadi. Side note: please remember to tip the staff, when I gave them cash at the end of the evening they looked very surprised as if most people don't tip. If you can afford a private chef you can afford to tip the staff which worked their tails off for us. They also made the evening. Best New Years in 10 years! Thanks Shadi!"


Kelli - Longmont, CO
It is an absolute joy to watch Shadi’s creativity, integrity and intention explode amongst the walls of her kitchen. She is continually sourcing the highest quality organic ingredients, often times from her own garden, purchased from the local farmer's market, or within the area which in a sense creates a very bio-dynamic community around her food. Pulling from her own culture and others', Shadi creates dishes that are worldly and adventurous while also adhering to strict dietary guidelines and requests. Her food will definitely entertain your senses!


Allan - Boston, MA
My wife, son, and I were on vacation in Denver and had the most amazing food prepared by Shadi. She came to the condo we were staying at and prepared everything. The curried tempeh chicken salad was the most amazing dish ever.  Not only was the food awesome but Shadi is so cool and we learned so much from watching her prepare everything. You can't go wrong with having Shadi prepare meals for you. We will 100% use her again when we are back in Denver.


Matt - Boulder, CO
Shadi cooked for us, my wife and 2 kids for a number of months. Her food was always amazing - really. She didn't seem to tire of the grueling repetitiveness of cooking for us. We are very thankful and appreciated her awesome positive attitude. She always got whatever done with a smile and the necessary energy.  The only complaint I can think of is that I'm ruined on a few different dishes. Her food really is that good.  Thank you, Shadi.


Jessica Emich, Executive Chef – Shine Restaurant Boulder
I so enjoy working with Shadi.  She is a very talented chef, thorough with details, and is a pleasure to be around.  I enjoy her creativity and her dedication to what she is doing.


Pamela - Louisville, CO
Shadi's food is healthy, tasty, and made with love!


Traci - Washington, DC
I had the opportunity to have a delicious meal prepared by Boulder Hemp Farm and thoroughly enjoyed the vegan lentil walnut loaf with shiitake gravy, and a beautiful fall farm salad. The food was fresh and comforting; everything was so well prepared. I look forward to my next Boulder Hemp Farm meal!


Allison - Lafayette, CO
Shadi is an amazing Chef! Most importantly her food is fantastic. But her presentation is gorgeous and she also knows how to handle different food sensitivities and she can cook many different ethnicities!


Laurie - Broomfield, CO

Shadi and I worked together creating retreats and workshops over several years. She gives her full focus and attention to food selection and preparation, and her service is excellent. She prepared absolutely delicious menu items for three meals per day for our guests, and everyone was very satisfied and so complimentary. She also made sure that those with any food allergies or other issues were carefully consulted and provided excellent alternatives. She was able to create these delicious meals in the most primitive kitchens in many cases - cabins in the mountains, or in limited kitchen areas where workshops were held. She will work with you to carefully select your menu and provide you with the most delicious and delightful results. I highly recommend Shadi Ramey for any event.


Amanda - Boulder
Shadi cooked for me during Panchakarma - Ayurvedic cleanse. It was the most delicious cleanse ever- her knowledge of spices and food as medicine made all the difference optimizing the cleanse and making a week's cleanse satisfying.


Nicole - Boulder
Shadi catered a vegan, gluten-free yoga retreat I attended. We had kitchari, grilled vegetables and several delicious hummus and olive dips! I plan to use them for an event I'm hosting next month.


Susan - Boulder
We hired Shadi after meeting with several other chefs in the area for a private event for our most highly regarded clients (who also have very strict dietary needs but love delicious creative food).  Shadi delivered all of that and more. The Chef was extremely respectful to our needs and delivered a memorable and absolutely delicious dinner! Made for a wonderful night that our clients still talk about!


Cynthia - Boulder
My experience with Shadi has been with prepared dinners, catering to my dietary needs and food choices to eat healthy whole foods. The meals have been incredibly delicious. Obvious that great care and love goes into the preparation of these meals! Thanks Shadi!


Sabrina - Boulder
She was my private chef for a couple years and I absolutely fell in love with her knowledge of ethnic cuisine, her Lebanese muhummara, as well as the best hummus I've ever had the pleasure of tastin. Her food was always so fresh and made from scratch that it always put a smile on me and my partners face. wouldn't change meeting Shadi and experiencing her and her food for the world!! she is extremely experienced and knowledgeable about food and very responsible and she made our day sunny.


Rachel - Denver
We had considered other options but I just felt so taken-care-of by Shadi's warmth and willingness to go out of her way to make sure everything went smoothly. I'd hire again for sure!


Linda - Ft Collins

I hired Shadi for a cooking class with a large group as a team building event. It was an amazing experience! She did a fabulous job creating a creative menu for our team to cook, working around food allergy issues, and making it an interactive experience toward our team building goals. I highly recommend Shadi for any cooking experience and will be looking to hire her again for future needs.


Amy - Denver

I had Shadi come give us an Indian cooking class in my home to celebrate my sister and her husband's birthdays. She was a delight from our first contact until she left my kitchen spotless and all of us delighted with her instruction and the delicious food. It was an evening to remember and I can't wait to hire her again for a lesson in Vegan cooking. What a gift she is to anyone who meets her! Her passion for food is equal only to her beautiful heart.
