"For the last two years Susan provided my young sons and I the most amazing service and food. My words fail me when trying to conjure up the impact of her cooking on our vacation.

My super picky 8 year old son will not even consider a vacation to Oregon now without her lasagna. All meals, all over the country, no matter their cost or presentation fail to live up. She has us hooked on her incredible food."

"Not only was Susan incredibly organized, well prepared, and able to accommodate our group's menu requests--she is a truly talented chef with a passion for cooking with local, healthful ingredients! She is charming and joined into the evening seamlessly. We could recommend the Pure Ingredients without hesitation!"

~ Anne O., Oakland, CA


"Brilliant service and Susan is wonderful. We now shop only for little things as needed, eat much healthier, clean much less, have more time for one another and all at little to no additional cost. The quality of food is excellent and you can customize your menu. We started the service as we had just had a new boy and now we keep the service as it doesn't make sense to go back to doing all the cooking and shopping ourselves."

~Courtenay S., Ukiah, CA


"Susan Zimmerman is a fabulous 'find'. She arrives at your home with prepared menu and has done all the grocery shopping. She turns the fresh ingredients into beautiful and delicious appetizers, salads, entrees and desserts---served table side. Susan leaves a clean kitchen and appreciative recipients. She is a five-star chef of the highest order."

~ Karen Atkins, Black Butte Ranch, Oregon


"Susan treated our nine guests to a wonderful cooking class in which she demonstrated cooking techniques and presented us with a delightful three course meal. Her charm and culinary skill laid the foundation for a totally delightful evening."

~ Linda Hoyt, Powell Butte, Oregon


"We LOVE Susan's food! It's always perfectly seasoned and delicious."

~ Jim and Kelly Young, La Pine, Oregon


"Susan's cooking gives me the freedom to spend more time with my family. I often work late and she makes it possible for us to have a healthy, gourmet meal made with the highest quality ingredients. I love my hand-made morning green juice!"

~ Ileana Bourland, Bend OR


"Susan is fabulous! She is so personable and really takes the time to get to know her clients. We are on the every-other-week schedule and she has been so flexible and responsive. We are on a budget and she has always worked within it. She really loves helping people eat healthy. My husband and I were in a food rut, and we hated grocery shopping because we were so uninspired. Susan's ideas are delicious! I actually eat vegetables now – m ore than I ever have before! For what we normally spend a week on food we get not only the food, but prepared perfectly for us. We feel very lucky to have come across Susan."
