Testimonials: Working with Rachel Mack

Rachel Mack has been a private chef to celebrities and busy families, working in the hospitality and culinary industry for over 25 years. See what some of her clients have to say!

“Rachel has been a part of the family for the past 6 years. She plans our menus, shops, cooks and keeps the fridge and pantry stocked. She’s been with us for special occasions, like graduation parties and holiday celebrations. Rachel comes along on our out-of-town vacations and makes sure that we eat well. She is totally reliable and I love her cooking and energy!”

Rosie O’Donnell

“Rachel came to work for my wife and I when we were advised by a doctor we needed to lose weight. Rachel sat down with us and we went over the do’s and don’ts of the diet. Based on that, Rachel crafted excellent meals each week and would revise the recipe if we so wished. The results were excellent. We were able to enjoy food, not have to cook at night, did not need to go out for dinner and still enjoy a healthy lifestyle. I would recommend Rachel to anyone who needs a personal chef that is not afraid to improvise based on the client’s needs and is so pleasant to work with. We plan on using her for upcoming catering events we are hosting in our home. I have no doubt our guests will enjoy her cooking too. Her prices are reasonable and in comparing the cost of going out or ordering in meals, she is much more affordable and better.”

Rachel orchestrates social events with ease, leadership, professionalism and unbound magnetism. She has an intuitive ability to sense what others need and provide it immediately; in my world, we might call it ‘fluid user experience’. In her world, I’d call it ’empathetic hospitality’. I recently engaged Rachel for a Gratitude Party for clients, partners and friends with whom I have deep, meaningful relationships. She made each individual in attendance feel at home, appreciated and cared for… the outcome was beyond what I could have ever imagined.

“Working with Rachel in Barcelona was one of the most amazing work experiences I have ever had. In spite of countless demands on her time and attention, Rachel was always available for guidance and support. She remained focused while juggling multiple competing responsibilities as well as leading and motivating an onsite team working 20 hour days – all with a smile on her face and a spring in her step! Rachel’s personality and impressive leadership skills made her a pleasure to work with.”
