Fast, professional and Dorrenda can cook!!! She made 4 bulk meals for me all of which I'd made myself half a dozen times but I can say without a doubt she surpassed mine. She has TCT... Taste, she understands how to use herbs and spices to add flavor instead of salt and butter. Clean, the old adage clean as you go...she was the personification of it!! Time (did I mention this lady is fast!) I will not embarrass myself with how long it would have taken me to do the same but she did it in a fraction of the time! I've had cooks in the past come and cook for me and they were friendly but not very skilled or skilled but the personality of sandpaper. Dorrenda has both and more, I will hire her again and have actually... already set our next appointment!

My husband and I have been clients of Sasha for nearly two years now. Sasha goes above and beyond for us. She follows our food sensitivity tests accordingly while she cooks healthy, fresh, and exciting meals for us at the same time. Sometimes eating healthy can get boring and seem very repetitive but not with Sasha's cooking! She is always making new dishes for us to try that we would never guess to be as healthy as they really are since they have so much flavor. Whether it's for health reasons or just the convenience of having someone to prepare fresh meals for you, we would highly recommend Sasha. She has a key to our house and we trust her with absolutely everything while we are not there. We love having her in our home and consider her more of a friend now than anything.

Sasha with Body & Soul Food did a fabulous job with my personal cooking class in my kitchen. I set this class up as a date with my girl friend and she enjoyed it very much. Sasha was very well prepared and it was such a joy having her demonstrated and instructing us on the dishes we made. Our class was schedule around lunch time so we enjoyed the dishes as our lunch. It was such a perfect date. Good food and fun. I highly recommend this experience to people wanting to do something different as a date. Sasha is the one to call to make it happen.

Sasha does a fantastic job cooking. First, as to the food, it is simply delicious. Carefully homemade and scrumptious, everything was bursting with flavor. Second, the delivery was exceptional. Alex brought everything inside my home; each dish explained, and instructions on how to reheat, etc. I highly recommend Body and Soul Food to any and all!

Christina was Great! We were a family of 13 visiting Phoenix for Thanksgiving and she gave us the red carpet. Collectively we decided on a menu for 2 days and she delivered without a hitch. We arrived on Wednesday afternoon and she was waiting for us at our rental home putting the finishing touches on our meal and it was GOOOOOD! For Thanksgiving Day she arrived at 11am to complete the meal for a noon meal time and we had a GREAT day of food, fun and family without worrying about cooking. I highly recommend Christina for any event or family function to ensure good food and an experience! Lastly, she provided a diverse portfolio of menu options, on Wednesday we had a Fajita bar, chicken wings with all the fixings/sauces made from scratch and Thanksgiving day we had your traditional Turkey and Dressing, ham with Mac-n-cheese, greens, salad and banana pudding and it was all great! Thanks Christina!

Jennifer was everything I hoped for and more than I expected!! I hired her to conduct a family cooking class for Mother's Day. She was able to accommodate my last-minute request and tailored the meal to our preferences. She is professional, patient (I have teenage brothers), and a very talented chef. She shared a lot of fun tips & tricks of the trade and because she brought all of the ingredients & tools we were able to pull off the perfect surprise! An awesome group activity where everybody participates--Hire her if you get the chance!!

Actually VERY GOOD. We had 50 guests for a Caribbean themed engagement party. Jennifer came up with a super buffet dinner- with some dietary requests handled well. Everyone enjoyed the food and there was plenty. If we were to do it again we would tell Jennifer to spice the side dishes up a bit more and hire her or someone else to help us replenish the trays of food and wash up so that we could mingle with guests. Many thanks to Jennifer for a job well done!

I have been fortunate enough to work with Lisa in both capacities of her cooking business. I have had her give me in-home cooking lessons and I have hired her as a personal chef. She is incredibly knowledgeable in her field and she is very easy to work with/ talk to/ learn from. I was sad that she moved away, but she trained an excellent replacement who I currently have as my chef. I highly recommend Chef Lisa Brisch! Give her food a taste and you will see for yourself! She is also very trustworthy - an important feature when you are letting someone into your kitchen!

Pure perfection!!! Lisa was my personal chef for several years and was outstanding in every way! Her meals were 5 star quality and yet so light in calorie - I was able to loose over 20 pounds and so far, have kept it off - I have Lisa to thank for putting me on the right track! And, my cleaning person always complimented her on how neatly she cleaned up after her cooking sessions - absolutely a delight to work with Lisa!

Chef Stacey catered an ASU graduation party for 15 people at a private home, and did an excellent job. We are from out of state and it was nerve-wracking to hire a caterer sight unseen, but Stacey put me at ease, coordinated beforehand, arrived on time, and presented a beautiful spread of delicious food. She is excellent at details - the skewers had little curled ends; the cucumbers in the veggie tray were scalloped; the artichoke dip was homemade. I paid for a higher-end appetizer buffet and she did not scrimp on quality in her food choices. As one of many examples, the fruit plate didn't have just "the usuals," but included some higher end fruits such as blackberries and raspberries. The meat and cheese tray was similarly high-end. Desserts were beautifully displayed and delicious. The quantity was very generous and we were able to offer some extra food to my daughter's college-student friends on their way out. Highly Recommend!

Creative. Passionate. Ambitious. Stacey pours her heart and soul into her food! From large catered events to small family meals, Stacey understands what her clients want as well as put her own personal spin on it. She is quick to help the novice at home chef as well as collaborate with seasoned peers to create delicious dishes.

I had alot of weight to lose and a short time to do it in. By myself I would not have been able to do it. Cyndi help me to kick my salt addiction, add a good exercise program and taught me how to make quick and tasty meals without all the calories. She even babysat with me sometimes. It was hard at first, but after a few weeks it became easier to follow the plan that we decided to follow.

I wanted to have some friends over for Dinner but did not want to do the cooking. Nutrition intuition saved the day! Amber made us roasted chicken and mashed chipotle sweet potatoes – it was all delicious. It was fun having her over and it felt like a friend in the kitchen as we talked about life and food while she prepped our dinner. We will definitely be hiring Amber again in the future, especially around the holidays!

Amber has been cooking for me on a regular basis for several weeks, and I couldn't be happier with the service. The food is delicious, Amber is highly professional and she has a great personality. I have multiple dietary restrictions and Amber has happily and creatively worked within the constraints given. I highly recommend Nutrition Intuition!

Amber is such a delight. Her knowledge of nutrition combined with her experience of teaching yoga is the perfect combination for someone you want looking out for your well being. She went grocery shopping with me and it has changed the way I will go grocery shopping forever! Read the labels. Definitely recommend her services!

I work for a non -profit organization that assists youth in learning to become independent. I reached out to Don and he was more than willing to help me in assisting a youth on learning the basics of cooking, so she could help take care of her family. She had one lesson so far and she was beyond happy with the results and wanted to learn more from Don! Thank you Don for making her experience a very positive one.

Working with Rhonda Beyreis of RAWndalicious LLC was an absolute honor. Chef Rhonda's performance as a Professional Chef and Caterer is beyond outstanding and far above her call of duty. She is an extremely gifted and dedicated Chef and Caterer who sees beyond what is put in front of her and delivers with such polish, professionalism and passion. Additionally, Chef Rhonda is personable, imaginative, creative, driven, reliable, honest, punctual, communicative, and hard working without slowing down or complaining. My experience with Chef Rhonda was truly inspiring, uplifting, educational, and memorable. With sincere thanks to Chef Rhonda, I have now improved my culinary and catering skills and everyday I awaken in a whole new light appreciating the gift of knowledge she has blessed me with. To be graced with Chef Rhonda's presence is truly a joy I hope to once again behold. Anyone who desires the best of chefs and caterers , I whole-heartedly recommend Chef Rhonda. RAWndalicious LLC with Chef Rhonda Beyreis is the only way to go!!!

Rhonda was above and beyond what we hoped for. I had her come to our home to help my 11 year old daughter (who is a heart patient) learn to make healthy deserts tat are fun and yummy! Rhonda brought everything that was needed for 2 deserts. she was talking and engaging our daughter not only in the 'hows' but the 'whys' of using and making of some of the ingredients. words can not express how grateful we are to have found her. I would recommend her to all ages and all venues of educating, cooking, and catering!

We had our annual backyard bingo party and I decided I didn't want to cook this year. We hired Natures Kitchen Catering. Not sure what to expect and being a little bit of a control freak, it was hard for me to let go in the beginning. But, after getting comfortable with the level of service, expertise and professionalism that Chef Jerald and his assistant displayed, it was minutes before I backed away and put everything in their hands. Our guests raved about the appearance, taste and quality of the appetizers that were served. It couldn't have been a more successful evening and I look forward to our next party when we will, without a doubt, be hiring Natures Kitchen again!

I contracted Elyse a few months back to cater a staff brunch for about 20 people. She was great, period. She was at the venue well ahead of time to prep and adjust to the location. She honored our odd request to have breakfast pizzas, and they were delicious. Eggs, bacon, avocado, you name it, she took care of it, and it was all great. The presentation was beautiful too, and it was all done with a smile. She even improvised some other healthy offerings to accommodate some dietary restrictions that we did not foresee. Furthermore, she's great at interacting with kids too, and let them safely watch the pizza making process. Also, she made these Nutella raspberry cupcakes that were amazing, ask her about them. It was such a great event, we had her do another event a few weeks later.

Elyse's cooking was absolutely delicious. Her passion for food came through in her creative menu pairings and flavorful dishes. Her ability to wisk together everyday things in my cupboard into a culinary masterpiece was truly inspiring. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a chef on any occasion.
