Jon orchestrated a fantastic evening for some close friends on a recent trip to Arizona. He quickly responded to my ( late) request for a private chef for our trip to Scottsdale. He presented a comprehensive proposal with fair pricing. He arrived promptly and began setup. That's where the wonderful experience blossomed. We had delightful, tasty appetizers, served with beautifully chosen wine pairing. The meal did not disappoint. We were further treated to a delightful salad with locally sourced ingredients, followed by perfectly cooked filet mignon. The molten chocolate cake was phenomenal. Again, all courses were paired expertly with wine and served by Jon with impeccable timing. This dinner became the highlight of our trip. I can't wait to use them again for a cocktail party. Recommend without reservation. Of note, Jon brought additional serving dishes that complemented our some what meagre selection at the house, elevating the meal. Kudos and many thanks!

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!

We had a lovely Christmas Party catered by Unique Luxury Catering. Chef Steve helped me pick out the perfect menu for our venue. Carol Ann coordinated everything: chairs, tables, linens, food, ice. Everything was included which made my job easier. Chef Alice prepared items which satisfied us all, including those that were vegetarians. The service was incredible. They were friendly and took care of all of our needs. Great job! Rose

I hired Hob Nob Catering for a family surprise birthday event for 40 guests and the food Chef Alice prepared was amazing, her "potato bar" station was so much fun. They worked with my budget and give more than we expected. I would highly recommend Hob Nob and her staff for any event!!

Wow! Wow! Wow! Sasha went above and beyond. She was very easy to work with, accommodating, and just the right price too. She helped me to plan a surprise cake decorating birthday party for my Mom. I'm up in Wyoming and she was able to even bring some extra supplies (wrapped cute too) as a gift. It made the day very very special. I know I will hearing about this day for years!! And seriously, what a fun treat to have a personal chef in your home?!

I contacted AZ Caterer about our Employee Appreciation Luncheon for our department in a large City. Being a gov't agency, our budget is limited, however Chef Vic worked with me to make our catering wishes come true. We have done bbq food for the past 8 yrs or so through a restaurant, but decided to go with Thanksgiving style meal this year. I was a little nervous, as we were expecting over 160 employees, but Chef Vic did NOT disappoint. Not only have I had employees just rave about the food, but the service and the attentiveness of Vic and his staff as well. The food and setup was beautiful and delicious! Everything appeared and tasted to be completely from scratch and we could have not been happier. The City will definitely be using AZ Caterer in the future, and I am sure many of my staff will reach out for personal events as well!

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

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 worked with Warren to provide a live auction experience for Matthews Crossing Food Bank. Warren not only helped elevate the live auction to help fundraise for the food bank but feedback on his chef services was great. I would work with him again in the future.

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. It's also nice that when I call I talk with the guy making the food (who is a professionally trained chef) and that I'm supporting a local business and his family.

My first experience with a chef for my husband and myself anniversary and it was great! The food was moist,juicy and seasoned well. Those are picky issues I have with trying others food and she delivered. She also did a nice consultation to make sure we were getting a meal that we would enjoy! Can't wait until the next session chef Jacquelyn!

Verified review

I hired Holly as a private chef for a dinner in Scottsdale, AZ that I was hosting for 15 ladies. The event was a bachelorette party, and as I was planning ahead, I figured it would be difficult (and expensive) to figure out reservations for 15 people. I am from OH so I got on thumbtack to look at prices for chefs to come to the home we were renting and prepare a meal. Shortly after inquiring about her services, Holly got back to me and was very accommodating to what I was looking for. She was so sweet and prompt in her response and just gave me good vibes. After discussing our budget, she came up two potential dinner options (Italian option or Mexican option). A week or two prior, we decided on Italian and she prepared a delicious dinner. For appetizers: Guacamole Bowl of Love with pomegranate, cilantro + heirloom cherry tomatoes White Bean Hummus + Veggie Crudite Artisan Meat + Cheese Board Dinner: Spinach + Asiago Cheese Ravioli Pesto Noodles, Spicy Sausage + Arugula Lasagna with buffalo mozzarella French bagguette garlic + rosemary bread Kale + Romaine Caesar Salad with heirloom tomatoes Food was amazing!!! And for $40/person, her services included shop, set up, prep, and clean up. Totally affordable and well worth it. Holly was such a pleasure to work with. Highly recommend =)

The process from start to end was seamless. Chef met with us and listened to our ideas and designed a totally custom menu just for our event. His food was tasty and the presentation was amazing. The staff was professional and friendly. I would highly recommend Chef Giancarlo's services to anyone looking for a caterer. You won't be disappointed.
