Born from a lifetime passion for cooking for her family and friends, Carolyn’s Cuisine embodies the essence of its owner and chef, Carolyn Abrams. Carolyn has multiple stories from growing up in Dallas confirming just how much her cooking and presentation are appreciated. After receiving a degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management from Denver University, she spent decades in food sales working with restaurants, country clubs, delis and caterers discussing recipes and mastering her personal style. Eventually, all of this research and collaboration would give birth to Carolyn’s Cuisine – Personal Chef and Private Catering.

Thank YOU for helping us celebrate our anniversary! What a fun evening! And the food was FABULOUS! We "got" (surprised) Pat good, and earned me "brownie points" for the entire year. Thank you for helping me accomplish that. If anyone ever wants a confirmation that your food is EXCELLENT, please give them my contact info and I'll be happy to share our experience. Thanks again! Todd Thomas- 11/15/2016 for a surprise anniversary dinner for two in response to a thank you note from Carolyn.

What a great experience! I loved working with Carolyn and was very pleased with the delicious meal she prepared. She was very helpful in advising me on menu choices, flexible in meeting the needs of a guest with special dietary needs, and a great communicator. She was timely. The food was beautifully presented. And the apple cake got rave reviews from my guests. Kerry S., Dallas, TX, September 16, 2015
Carolyn is an excellent cook. She went out of her way to accommodate our taste and requirements. We also wanted slight changes to our schedule every other week, and she had no problem with them. She is very funny too. Karthik M., Richardson, TX, September 4, 2015

I just started using Carolyn to deliver dinner for 5 one night a week. We had a our first delivery today and it was OUTSTANDING! Everyone loved their food and the portions were big enough that we have some left overs for tomorrow. She is great to deal with and so nice and friendly in person. If you are looking for a personal chef then look no further. So happy we connected with her! Deepak Gupta, Plano, TX, March 19, 2015
Great job for my dinner party for 20 people on December 26! I shall spread your name far and wide!

I’ve known Carolyn for many years, and in the past two years, have been lucky to taste her delicious and skilled cuisine. Among my favorites have been the pistachio encrusted salmon and the tapenade appetizer. But I’ve also enjoyed her fabulous Caesar salad and flourless chocolate cake. Carolyn knows how to build a well rounded and coordinated menu that is both delicious and inviting. Carolyn is knowledgeable of health conscious food choices, has a broad repertoire of vegetarian specialties, and is very accommodating to picky palates. She’s also quite sensitive to those who wish to avoid starchy white foods and knows appropriate alternatives. I hope to continue to enjoy Carolyn’s mouth watering creations and would recommend her chef skills to anyone who loves to eat. Melanie Morris, Dallas, TX
I have known Carolyn Abrams for many years. She has always loved cooking and entertaining, and it seems that many of our gatherings have centered on food. Carolyn spends a great deal of time planning and preparing for the meals we have together, and her dedication to making them special events shows. Even our daughter loves Carolyn’s Greek Rice Pilaf and Greek Salad. Our son has learned to make Carolyn’s Caesar salad without looking at the recipe. A chocolate truffle cake has been a favorite over the years. There are other dishes, but too numerous to list. What makes Carolyn stand out from others is that she is not afraid to take risks in the kitchen. She’ll try out a new recipe for a party, because she is confident of her ability to create an outstanding dish. She can take a dish served in a restaurant and recreate it; tweaking it a little with her unique twists just by tasting it. Carolyn is versatile in the types of cuisine she prepares. We have eaten Middle Eastern, Greek, Mexican, Italian, Indian, French, and good old American, to name just a few. Carolyn is also geared toward the health conscious, as she prepares many vegetarian and vegan dishes. If a “home-style” meal, such as roast chicken, meatloaf, eggplant parmesan or lasagna is on the request list, then that is what Carolyn will prepare. She also does a mean stir fry!

I have been lucky to attend Superbowl parties at Carolyn’s house. Some people might have been there for the game, but we were there (for the company! and) for the food. The ample buffet featured many delicious dishes which appealed to a variety of tastes. She made my favorite dessert, flan, flawlessly. Carolyn takes great care in her food preparation and knows about all things culinary. I worked at a company with a catering department. Carolyn was the sales rep for our food service vendor. She provided us with what we needed on a timely basis and was a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend Carolyn’s catering services! Monica Hoffman, Houston, TX
