Man these guys were awesome! Every aspect of their customer service was without flaw. From the email correspondence to the personal chefs at the event who interacted with my guests. I had an outdoor event that required serving and cooking the food outside for 100 people. I had very nice food options, steak with bearnaise, BBQ chicken, ribs and several sides. I wish I would have gone more casual, as the the gourmet menu really needs and indoor kitchen to reach its full potential. This was my flaw, just a tip for those considering their own menu. I would recommend them to anyone. Wonderful!

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 parents told me it was a wonderful experience, they enjoyed the food Doreeda made and served! And because it was a surprise, my dad had been guessing all day as to what it was, made it super fun! Thank you Chef Doreeda for a job well done!

I was in Scottsdale for a girl's weekend and wanted to host a private, casual dinner party for my guests. Since there was only 6 of us I was worried about finding a great chef. My worries were for naught once I contacted Unique Luxury Catering! Steve and Carol Ann called me as soon as I had emailed and within the day, we had planned a southwest inspired dinner, complete with chef made margaritas! They confirmed all the arrangements two days before and Chef Ezra arrived at the appointed time, ready to go. The food and drinks did not disappoint (!) and better yet, he took care of all the clean up, including wrapping up some great left overs! I give Unique Luxury Catering 5 stars all around!

We had 22 guests for a sit down dinner on the patio and Unique Luxury Catering did a phenomenal job. The appetizers were a huge hit! Not only was the food amazing but even on a chilly night the beef tenderloin, gruyère cheese potatoes and green beans were served on warmed plates ensuring our guests had a delicious meal experience. Chef Ezra and Mary Ann did such a great job and their attention to detail resulted in the perfect event. Crystal tended bar and made sure all our guests had what they needed. I highly recommend Unique Luxury Catering!

We Hired Robin November 11, 2016 For our client appreciation party. We interviewed Robin along with 5 other chefs. I liked Robin from the start she took charge and described how she would put the event together. Decerations and placement of the stations she was very good at helping make our vision come to life. We went through the 5 other interviews and that was a waste of time knobody got involved and sold us on them Robin did. After our interview with Robin she followed up and brought us a delicous sample platter knobody else took the time to do that. She went way beyond. So we hired her. Her pricing was extremely reasonable. We had around 60 people show up to our party. Robin dominated the event and she even interacted with the guests and made them feel special and welcome. When you meet her you will feel very comfortable and confident you made the right choice. She gave the event a very warm feeling. I feel like we made a fiend and I will only use Robin for our future events. Robin I really appreciate you. Our guests were extremely impressed you made us all look good and we are extremely grateful we picked you. Pioneer Title

Chef Robin did a tremendous outstanding job catering for my baby's baptism. I will definitely be calling her again for future events. Robin catered delicious food, setup our VIP table for guest and had a separate buffet area for the kids area. She also stayed the whole time during our (very long) event - and all together just took a lot of the stress away, where I knew that area would be handled by her. It felt like all we had to do was show up - instead of slaving over the stove and then getting ready for our event. And another thing I liked about Robin was her availability and flexibility. She is also such a people person - My Family Loves her annndd our guest kept complimenting and asking who made the food and how did we find her? All in ALL Chef Robin deserves a 5 star and more.

Chef Alice is top notch. We used Hob Nob Catering for our Easter dinner and truly could not have been happier. All of the food was absolutely amazing - the scrumptious appetizers and steak were among the best any of us had ever had! Chef Alice planned the impressive menu and was super flexible with any requests. She was a complete professional start to finish. Just a delight to work with. She decorated our tables so elegantly and beautifully. Mike, also from Hob Nob, helped serve our Easter meal and he was just terrific. Such a pro and so nice. We loved that we were able to have a 5 star dining experience with our friends and family in our home and did not have to do any work or have any worries. We are 100% sold on her and her company. Any future catering event will involve Chef Alice and Hob Nob Catering!!!!

I must say that hiring Two Fish and a Loaf is the best decision that I ever made! Chef Brenda and her crew of people where efficient and very helpful throughout the whole day of my Families Christmas Celebration. She arrived early with her girls to do setup, handled food preparations for the party, had ever thing done for appetizers, and the main meal after my family had arrived. The whole day was so relaxing for me, no stress. They served desserts and did all the clean up before leaving! Awesome Job Two Fish and a Loaf!

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.

Chef Christine made our Mother's 90th birthday celebration amazing!! She made a special Spanish Tapas menu in keeping with our Spanish theme. We began with a spectacular Summer Artisan Cheese Board; then Spanish Potato Bombas; Shrimp Tapas w/Mango Shooters; Chimichurri Pork and Chicken Skewers; Marinated Flank Steak Crostini and ending with Bananas Foster Vanilla Bean Tempura Ice Cream with Caramel Sauce. Are you hungry yet? Best of all Chef Christine set up; cooked; served and cleaned up. Hiring a personal chef was genius. Christine was prompt, professional and personable. We were extremely impressed and will be using her again in the future. The Kriz Family

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!

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!

We had our first private lesson for Ian last night, could not be happier with what Stacey did for him. Both Stacey and her fiancé Matt are awesome people,the whole family had a great time hanging out and laughing with them as she walked Ian through making sushi. You won't find friendlier people or a more knowledgeable chef for insight and inspiration...turns out all of us enjoyed Ian's Christmas present as much as he did...and the sushi was excellent!! Don't hesitate to take a lesson, you will have a blast!!

We hired Whitney for my brother’s engagement party and we couldn’t have asked for a better bartender. She is personable, energetic and made awesome drinks. I even got a text from her as she was on her way asking if I needed her to pick up ice or anything else for the party. In addition to making drinks, she went above and beyond by refilling coolers, accommodating special requests from guests and keeping everything clean throughout the night. Multiple guests asked for her contact info for future parties. I highly recommend her!

My customers always rave about the food quality. These guys are always on time. The food is easy to order. Price is very reasonable especially when compared to the large restaurant chains. The Honest Food Project is my number one choice when I provide customer lunches.

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.

I do just about everything. Since the age of 12, I cleaned in the home, looked and cooked for a lady with cancer, and cleaned for another woman. At 13, it was off to a paper route and at 15 worked in restaurants, and continued with all aspects until it came time to help my mother in any way I could. I also set doctor appointments, cooking pills etc. Also, I did renovations and landscaping and worked as a mortgage broker's assistant. (He made the most money in that period.) I am also an investment seeker whether it be homes or stocks. I still do a lot of research which is half the battle. Thank you. Jon
