Kelly, Thank you for the wonderful food and service for our wedding reception. Everything was perfect! It was great not to have to worry about anything that day because you had it all under control – just lovely.

“She became a friend of the family. On what would have been our golden anniversary, Kelly cooked a meal for the family. None of us wanted to mess around in the kitchen.  A descendent of Danish and Norwegian immigrants, Boye was touched to find that Kelly had prepared Danish specialties for the occasion.

Chef Kelly Erb

Originally from Northern New Jersey, I grew up in a home full of good cooks, where slow food was the rule. The proximity to NYC  allowed me to gain a deep appreciation for ethnic foods. In 1995, I bought a small farm in Floyd County, Virginia. I got serious about organic gardening and high quality food and became connected with many local farmers and foragers. For years I baked treats and desserts for local restaurants and shops. In 1998 Invisible Chef was born from that love of food and has been going strong for over 20 years.
