picture of chef laura Chef Laura's dream becomes a reality. With 15 years of experience working in human services, nutrition, meal planning, medication certification, diabetes training/ injection certification, and training to prepare food for people with special dietary needs (exp: no gasp reflex), Mimmy's House A Personal Chef Service was started in the loving memory of my grandmother Muriel (Mimmy) Elizabeth VanderWalker.

My grandma was a good cook and a tremendous baker. I spent many days, sitting at her kitchen table watching as she measured a little of this, and a handful of that, and a splash of something else, and mixing it until it "felt right". Everything she touched turned into a wonderful treat. I have also worked along side my mother Jean La Crosse, in her kitchen and developed my own gifts by learning from my mom's examples. I am so grateful to have developed a love for cooking, based on the love that was given to me by my mother and grandmother.

Cooking is therapy to me. I have spent hundreds of hours in the kitchen planning, coordinating, and cooking for personal chef clients, victorian teas, catered ribbon cutting ceremonies, ground breaking ceremonies, wedding receptions for 250+, wedding anniversaries, birthday parties, church events, in home gourmet dinner parties and many wonderful evenings around my own kitchen table with my family and friends. I hope to use my cooking and event planning expertise to give you and your family many evenings of dinner satisfaction and enjoyment
