You are the utmost professional and made the evening beyond amazing.
The way you prepared all the food and when you were done the kitchen was spotless, a party by Julia is the best.
I found chef Julia randomly on the internet by searching private chefs… I was interested in having someone cook healthy meals for my two boys, ages 10 and 14. She came to our home and did a sample meal for the family, and it was amazing. Julia has now been with our family for more than 3 years!! What a great find!!! She is reliable, informative, open to suggestions, creative and truly amazing high energy person… More than that, my boys love her! She even lets them help her in the kitchen, especially when she makes my younger son Chicken Parm!! If you are looking for someone to help tailor healthy menus for you and your family and want someone you can trust, Julia is the best chef out there.
I highly recommend Chef Julia and team
Having fresh vegan meals delivered weekly has been such and amazing compliment to our high performance lives. The recipes are delicious and seasonal. Julia and Lauren are amazing to work with.
Julia is an amazing chef. I've used her for private chef services in NYC and as the weekend chef for a coaching retreat. Her food is great - particularly her vegetable dishes. She's flexible and easy to work with, and at the retreat she and her sous-chef not only cooked amazing food that blew away all the attendees but also did all the shopping, prep AND cleanup which made it like having full waitstaff for the weekend. For the service, she's very affordable. Hire her!
I first experienced Julia's cooking at a dinner party hosted by a friend. Julia's four course dinner was incredible (especially her roasted squash on a freezing night) and made me realize maybe I don't really need all those restaurants after all. Moreover, Julia's hospitality, ability to adapt the menu at the last minute for another guest's allergy (while working from a kitchen she had never been in), and wine pairings made it a night to remember.
Can’t wait to come back for fourths.
When I showed up at a small dinner gathering, I didn’t know I was in the presence of greatness. I simply marveled at the beautiful presentation and started scarfing down my meal. And then I had seconds...and then thirds of the mouth-watering chicken and succulent squash. It wasn’t until I was almost finished my plate(s) when I learned that my humble host was this amazing chef who prepared such a memorable meal. Not only did Julia create a dish that restaurants can only dream of, but her bombastic personality paired the exquisite plate with a flair to match! Can’t wait to come back for fourths.
Highly recommend for a dinner party!
Julia was fantastic for our small dinner of 7. The ingredients were in season, healthy and delicious. Highly recommend for a dinner party! She has a great personality too!
I would recommend her a million times over ! Thank you !
Julia came to a friend’s home to prepare a private five course meal for an event. The entire meal was exquisite ! The food was beautifully prepared and tasted amazing. All of the courses tasted so divine , you didn’t even realize how healthy they were ! Julia was a joy to be around and I would recommend her a million times over ! Thank you !
Julia, can we hang out some time??!
Julia is simply a force to be reckoned with in the kitchen, and an all around fun person to take over your kitchen for a night (or a week, or everyday.... you get my point!!!). Every dish she prepares is cooked perfectly, and you can see and taste the hard work she puts into meal planning and preparation. Additionally, she is professional and always leaves the kitchen sparkling clean. Julia, can we hang out some time??!
Thanks Julia for always being top notch!
We have worked with Chef Julia on a number of occasions to host virtual cooking classes for our clients. She has always done an amazing job in breaking down the recipes in a way that make it fun, engaging and ultimately easy to process. She is super easy to work with and always delivers a top level of service. All the tips and tricks that she provides are so valuable and we are grateful to have found her.
Julia Chebotar is an outstanding NYC chef that I'd recommend for any occasion.
She's a pleasure to work with and works swiftly in crafting customized menus to fit all of your needs. My favorite part about working with her is that her cooking is healthy and nourishing and incredibly tasty! I’ve worked with Julia from small 20 people events to full day catering to a retreat and cannot wait to continue our relationship.

Julia is, first of all, an amazing cook,
but she also has a strong sense of knowing how to customize meal plans and ingredients that fit specific needs. She has a wealth of healthy tips and tricks. She has cooked fantastic meals for events that I've been involved with that require dietary restrictions and can be anywhere from 2-100 people. The food is always colorful, flavorful, and nutritional. Julia puts so much heart into everything she does and does everything with a smile on her face. I can guarantee anyone would be more than pleased with the services she has to offer.
Julia Chebotar is a lifesaver, in every sense of the word.
Her intimate way of connecting to her clients makes the whole experience worthwhile. She is so passionate about helping others have a healthy lifestyle that it makes you excited to be better, do better, eat better, and want her to be involved every step of the way! I recently have changed my diet back to vegetarian and Julia has made the transition fun and exciting. She has helped create meal plans that not only taste similar to my cravings I've had before giving up meat...but they are better! I love her attention to detail and the love she puts in! I would recommend Julia to anyone looking to expand their flavor palate, start eating more consciously, and want great ideas on how to live a more full life! She is top notch!
During my pregnancy it was very important for me to have a healthy vegetarian diet.
Cooking became very hard, as I was very sensitive to smells. One day I ordered from Julia and l and loved the food! I was happy to learn that she offered customized catering. I went to the restaurant location where I met the chef/owner, Julia, and saw the restaurant facilities. After chatting with her about what I was looking for, she offered me options for a weekly menu full of healthy ingredients that I would need during pregnancy.
Julia Chebotar and I have been working together for the last several months.
I brought her on as a personal chef affiliate to my fitness company, brouk moves. She is responsive, on time, a true professional to work with and my clients love her food. I would highly recommend Julia in any kitchen.

Chef Julia Chebotar was phenomenal.
Julia and I worked out the menu together, being sensitive to the various dietary restrictions of the guests. On the day of the party, Julia and her sous chef Frankie arrived early to my house to prepare, then prepared a delicious, healthy, gourmet, 4-course meal with a wonderful spiced mulled wine cocktail. Needless to say, my wife was thrilled and took down all of Julia’s recipes. We can’t wait to plan our next event with her again.
Julia is an amazing chef!
The quality, presentation and nutritional value are equally matched by her amazing energy, positivity, and kindness. Her attention to detail is obvious as is her love for what she is doing. She was both professional and friendly, exceptional at grocery shopping on a budget, and unparalleled in her creative meal planning. I used her for a weekend retreat and each meal and snack was spectacular. Every single person was blown away. Plus, Julia was great at prep and cleaning up and managed the kitchen with ease and expertise. I have only the best things to say about her and would use her again in a heartbeat.
I had the pleasure of meeting Julia at a yoga retreat
where she spoiled all the guests with her delicious and nutritious food creations. The flavors and presentation were an indulgence for my senses that I wish I could enjoy daily. Beyond Julia's outstanding cooking skills she is warm, caring, and easy to talk to which make her an absolute joy to be around. Words cannot say enough about health chef Julia's amazing cooking! You just have to experience it.
Julia was the chef at a private weekend retreat
I attended recently and all I can say is wow! Her recipes, presentation, attention to detail, and just overall lovely demeanor were second to none. In a perfect world I'd have health chef Julia in my life every day. Many of us had dietary restrictions that she accommodated with ease. The food was absolutely delicious and after a weekend away...I didn't come home feeling gross and bloated. I felt nourished and energized. I cannot recommend her services enough. Chef Julia is one of the best private chefs I've ever had the pleasure of experiencing!
Well, Julia is the real deal
I was honestly so scared to hire a chef because I have an insane amount of restrictions for my diet due to chronic illnesses. I always feel so stressed about what to eat and meal time because of it so the thought that someone could actually help me create meals on a regular basis just seemed like a fantasy! Well, Julia is the real deal and I am so grateful I found her. She has the best attitude, such a warm and bright spirit and really listens to your needs as she creates menus that are exciting - no matter how many limitations you have. I ended up hiring her for a retreat of mine and I can't wait to continue working with her for years to come!
