Working with Teddy has been great. She consistently delivers healthy and delicious meals for my family. She customizes our menu selection based on our preferences and purchases organic food for us at my request. I highly recommend Teddy!

Taking Pure Joy was flexible in working with me on a delicious surprise dinner for loved ones. They prepared an excellent meal in advance and delivered it so it was staged at the perfect timing to be enjoyed by all, even the kids! I would definitely hire Taking Pure Joy again.

Teddy is a great chef and cooked everything to perfection, we absolutely will work with her again
