Chef in Brooklyn, New York

I'm an
Hi I'm Maja! I've been a private chef for over five years for many different people & families for extended periods of time. I started out as a line cook before falling in love with private cheffing. I'm comfortable prepping and preparing a wide variety of cuisines in any form. Growing up half Swedish and half Pakistani I was exposed to a complex wide range of flavor profiles and spices. My favorite cuisines to cook are Chinese, Indian, and Thai! Cooking professionally over the years I have experience with gluten, sugar, and dairy-free diets. In general I can follow any diet plan/restrictions from raw vegan, to keto, to a specific liver diet! Whatever your needs are I can execute them with bold flavors and exciting ingredients.

Maja-lisa has been cooking for our family for almost two years and has been an incredible help for our family. She is able to cook an extraordinary variety of meals and has kept us healthier and more energetic. She not only takes direction and suggestions but will offer up many ideas for meals without any input from us at all. She is organized, dependable, peaceful and a wholesome addition to our chaotic family. The meals she makes have a wide range -- from special leafless salads to more traditional kid friendly lasagnas and very robust and hearty beef stews. She shops on her own and is able to make incredibly high quality food that means we always have something healthy and filling in the refrigerator. She has not only made our regular weekday meals but has made major meals/entrees for big family dinners when we need to entertain and could easily make a several course meal if we asked her to. The kids ages 15-10 have expanded their pallets and fallen in love with her. You will too!


Maja is a talented cook with knowledge of a variety of cuisines. She is attentive to detail and is creative and resourceful in the kitchen. Maja learned her way around our kosher kitchen, and we rely on her for basic food prep, weeknight dinners, and celebratory holiday meals. As the mom of two very young babies, I especially appreciate that she always leaves the kitchen cleaner than how she found it.
