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!

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 were delighted. 10/10 would recommend to anyone looking for great food from great people! -Rishi and Jamie Syed

I can't thank Chef Sasha enough for putting together a wonderful dinner for a retreat we had in AZ. Before the day of the dinner, she was responsive and patient with all of my 100 questions that I had for her. Even when I messed up the date of the dinner, she was able to accommodate and still work the new date I gave her. If we are ever in the Phoenix area in the future, we will be sure to use her for a private dinner again.

Chef Vic was amazing! Especially for asking last minute. As the young generation would say, "he came in on a clutch". Found him on Thursday and he was available for us early Saturday morning on time with everything. Thanks again and we will always keep in touch!

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.

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 =)

My experience with Chef David Phelps was amazing. He was able to help us out by figuring out the menu, the prices and everything and how he was able to help out with the surprise planning. I would highly recommend his service and everything. I had 100 guests and at the end of the party, every guests was able to take 2 or 3 take outs from the leftover and we still had enough food left for our family to eat for a week. The service was amazing, the good was tasty, and everything was perfect. Thank you David for treating us like family and I will make sure to spread the word so they can experience your excellent service. God Bless.

Working with Stacy is one of the best things I have ever done for myself. After years of raising my family and always putting others first, I contacted Stacy to help me eat a more healthy diet. Not only are all her meals nutritious they're delicious and satisfying. Stacy loves feedback and really incorporates that into your menus. She has introduced me to some food items that I never tried before and now love. I think her pricing is very reasonable and I find that it's kind of a wash since I no longer spend as much at the grocery store. Stacy is a great, knowledgeable chef who genuinely enjoys her work and truly cares about the well-being of her clients. I recommend Stacy without hesitation!

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.

About

I am a certified chef who enjoys both cooking and teaching others to cook. If you are hosting an event, I would be happy to do the cooking and clean-up for you or to help you do it yourself. If you are too busy to cook during the week, but tired of restaurant and take-out food, I can prepare and serve a meal for you or prepare meals for the week that you can have on the table in minutes. If you would like to cook for yourself or for your family and friends but just never learned how, I can help with that as well.
