        Many Catering companies can put you in touch with Chefs.

          Friends of mine have hired and loved another friend, who's a chef/cookbook author/cooking teacher and lovely person. She's busy, but if you can get her, she'd be great.

            I haven't had a need for this myself, but


            is an interesting web site that lists lots of local chefs, with resumes, sample menus, etc. They seem to cover a wide price range.
