home chef niland kitchenChef Kelley Hawks has helped to pioneer the Personal Chef Service industry with customized meals that taste amazing and are nutrient-dense.  For over 20+ years, Chef Kelley Hawks provides Tiki Go Go clients with homecooked dinners using innovative recipes that offer what she likes to call ” Health Conscious Cuisine.”  Chef Hawks is passionately involved in creating chef -crafted meals for personal healing – whether you are feeling healthy, facing medical or dietary challenges or simply sense that you could feel better than you do now.  Tiki Go Go Personal Chef Service takes the work out of cooking while leaving you in control – combining convenience, outstanding service and surprising affordability that enables you to eat at home the way you’d like to if only you had the time.  Cooking has always been about a mixture of things for me: eclectic influences, places, tastes, and ingredients that together form my own view of food and how it all goes together.

After 10 years of working solo for private clients – Chef Kelley Hawks, joined together with her husband, Chef Tom Hawks to work as a team. Together as a dynamic duo they developed a wide range client base offering full service catering for every type of event from their very special Tiki Parties – to large holiday galas, fundraiser events, corporate cocktail parties, wedding receptions and small gatherings.  Tiki Go Go Chef Service always goes above and beyond the catering standard to bring cutting edge design ideas to life that create both major impact and lasting good impressions.  With more than 20 years of intense hands-on culinary experience working within the gourmet food scene in San Francisco, the Hawks Chef Team has relocated to Sarasota, Florida in the Summer of 2017 to continue to develop their unique food vision in another region.

“Chef Kelley was fabulous and the food was outstanding.  My guests could not stop raving about it.  I’d ask Tiki Go Go to cater a party for me  again in a heartbeat”.

“Tiki Go Go was great!  This was a catered company event with people traveling from 10 different countries and there were particular diet restrictions.  Chef Kelley came up with very interesting meat and vegetarian dishes – there were lots of compliments.  They made it a -no effort- event on my part and I was able to enjoy the guests.”

“Chef Kelley was a star.  Everyone loved the food, she handled a large (and somewhat chaotic) event with grace and ease.  Wonderful fun all around and I’d be happy to hire Tiki Go Go again.”

“My experience with Chef Kelley Hawks was incredible.  The food was delicious and my guests were very impressed. The appetizers, salad & main course were outstanding but the dessert may have been the best part of all – a fresh baked berry tart with a buttery cornmeal crust left the guests coming back for 2nd and 3rds servings after a huge feast. She was flexible with the menu and helpful brainstorming options.  In sum, she went above and beyond – I would whole heartedly recommend her for any event!”

” I don’t know how I would have been able to pull off a fundraiser for 400 people without Tiki Go Go’s help.  From planning the menu to executing all the food the night of, Chef Kelley was both a pro and a joy to work with.  The guests absolutely adored her food.  Go go to Tiki Go Go as soon as possible.”
