Marcel created a delicious menu based on my preferences to serve breakfast, lunch and dinner to a hungry group of 15. Incredibly professional and friendly, he has a real passion for cooking. He got a round of applause from our group when he left and then we even brought him back last minute to cook an additional meal for us one day because enjoyed it so much. The food is fresh, healthy and flavorful. We will definitely work with him again.
They catered my daughters Cinderella themed sweet 16 birthday. The food was delicious and served and presented as though you were eating in a high end restaurant. The servers were an added touch, they were professional in appearance and gave impeccable service. My guests raved about how wonderful the food was. I am vegetarian and gluten free and they prepared a special meal for me which I greatly appreciated. The cake was so beautiful... Exactly like the picture we had provided Carolina. I can't say enough good things about this company, but I do know I will use them again! They came in with their team and prepared and served out of my kitchen and left it spotless. Wow is all I can say... Thank you Carolina, Boris and Gustavo for all you did to make this night memorable. ~Shara~
My husband and I hired Madkins catering for a family weekend in the desert (La Quinta). We requested a bbq for the first night, and an early Easter dinner for the second night. I expected the meals to be good but not great (I haven’t really had an excellent catering experience). However, the meals were OUTSTANDING. Chef Aviarie is truly talented, and our entire family and guests talked about the interesting flavors and quality of the food. I still can’t get over how Chef Aviarie and Frank prepared everything from scratch in our kitchen in just a few hours! We requested a hefty amount of dishes, and they pulled it off without a sweat! The team is incredibly kind, professional and a pleasure to have cooking in our kitchen. They even managed to entertain our 6 year old nephew while they were cooking. I should also note their rates are very reasonable! I can’t say enough good things about our experience. I am happy to serve as a personal reference in case anyone wants my feedback. Madkins Catering can provide my email address. OUTSTANDING JOB! We look forward to hiring you again in LA or in the desert!
Chef Marc was such a wonderful professional. Deliveries were always on time, like clock-work with no problems. The food has absolutely incredible variety and there was never any meals I didn't like. The food was also incredibly healthy and great care was taken in preparation. This has been the best meal prep service I have ever used.
We attended Diner en Blanc with 2000+ people. Ninety percent of the people in attendance ate a cold meal as you had to provide your own dinner. It was a night to remember having Wild Thyme serve us a 5 course sit down meal, two of which were served hot despite not having a kitchen. We as well as everyone were wondering where the delicious food smell was coming from, only to realize that those courses were being served to us!! Needless to say, we were the envy of many! The meal was not only delicious, but was beautifully presented. We were impressed with the quality and presentation of the food. It was a seamless and professional process. Cannot say enough about Wild Thyme.
Chef Mark is very experienced and qualified, and creates very special menus with your preferred ingredients and for every occasion, like the Thanksgiving inspired meal he prepared for us and our dinner guests last November. He is also a pleasure to talk to, so, as a customer I had a wonderful experience since the making of all dishes to the actual dinner time!
I am rating this experience based upon our guests who were quite pleased with the service, the overall meal, and the presentation. Total high marks!
Tonya was great in the planning process. She was responsive and really helpful in menu planning. The food was a hit! The only hiccup was on the day of. Due to forgetting one of the courses at home and traffic on the freeways, our meal wasn't set up until 30 minutes after the agreed upon time. While these things happen, it did affect our overall experience.
Travis was able to provide a meal prep service custom tailored to my needs! He works efficiently and left my kitchen spotless after cooking a week's worth of food. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing cooking services.
Keith prepared an amazing Thanksgiving feast for our employees. He brought tables and chairs for us, set everything up and had a delicious hot meal ready for us to sit down to eat at the time we had requested. And he came back and cleaned up afterward. Five stars!
Steven catered a flawless dinner this past Memorial Day for my brother’s bachelor party – it was truly a highlight of the weekend! From the beginning, I noticed Steven’s response time was not only incredibly fast, but also extremely receptive to our dietary preferences and general desires for the evening. After carefully designing the perfect menu, Steven meticulously sources his fresh, organic ingredients from local farmer’s markets; Admittedly I am annoyingly choosy when it comes to sourcing foods, and can safely say few restaurants match the quality that Steven brings to the table. Steven was happy to accommodate our group with an indoor/outdoor service so that the guests could take advantage of the property’s pool and firepit as well as the views from the main dining area. The total service must have spanned 3 hours, first bites to dessert, but the time really flies when you’re able to thoroughly enjoy the company of your guests and avoid the distractions and chaos of a typical LA restaurant. To top it all off, Steven’s staff left the kitchen spotless, and even prepared individual “meal-prep” boxes with the leftovers for all of our guests. Steven and his crew really treat you like royalty. Aside from humoring some of the group’s silly behavior and taking some phenomenal group pictures at sunset, you would hardly know the staff is there. I seriously recommend inquiring about Steven’s services for those who can appreciate a meal cooked with passion, need to make a special event memorable, or just want to have a care-free dining experience in the comforts and privacy of their own home.
On Feb 1, 2018, Chef Amy performed her private chef services at my girlfriend’s birthday party with our teenage daughter. Amy curated a delicious 5-course menu based on our favorites. She prepared the food in new fun beautiful ways. Amy was funny, approachable and professional. She brought all needed cooking and serving ware. She cooked and cleaned up everything. Amy explained and presented every course of the meal and prepared unique never seen before drinks that were a huge hit! The food portions in each course were just right and completely filling. Amy clearly loves cooking and enjoys interacting with clients. Amy was sooo good by evenings end that we were singing to our throw-back music playlist and hugging her goodbye with anticipation of a future event. I definitely plan to hire Amy many more times in the future. HIGHLY RECOMMEND- 5 STARS
We hired Danesh for a party of 14. She put together a superb event. First, Daneen is a gem of a human being. She is wonderful to work with and makes everything easy. Second, she is an outstanding chef. The meal she prepared for my guests, including hors d'Oeuvres, mains, and desserts, was most delicious. The pairings were great, the tastes both subtle and bold. Third, Daneen has a great eye for making the plate look cookbook perfect. She is wonderful, and I cannot wait for the chance to hire her again.
I was working out with a trainer, and doing cardio at least 6 times a week; I was barely moving the needle on the scale I stood on each day. My trainer was very helpful in helping me realize it was what I was eating each day and not eating enough of the right foods. My trainer had suggested I look at a few meal plans. As I was looking at this options I knew if I got the standard meal plan delivery from one of the well-known companies, I would end up throwing half of the food away. I then made a conscious effort to explore and search for other options, and I discovered Carmi. I have been very pleased with my results, and I have been utilizing her personal chef services for almost two years! My original plan was to utilize her for six months, as I prepared to be on a web-series reality show. I dropped the weight I needed and I made a choice to continue with her. I love that we design my meals each week, and we change them according to my palate, and what I need to help keep me healthy. I will tell you all of her meals are scrumptious and addictive! I have regular requests each week, as I must have those dishes! She is very dependable, reachable and always ready to work with you. This is a truly one-on-one personal chef design. Take all of those frozen food meals in your freezer and toss them out; as Carmis meals are fresh and organic and just plain yummy!
I have enjoyed many meals prepared by Diane. Her culinary expertise ranges from summer dishes such as delicious ribs to warm comforting soups for the winter. Her food and matching themes are wonderful and delightful.
We are looking forward to having Greg wow us with his gorgeous food and his wonderful personality at our upcoming party!
Jeanne provided an anniversary dinner for my husband and I at our home and was very accommodating to our dietary requests. She prepared a delicious 5 course Italian, keto-friendly meal and we were both very satisfied with her service, professionalism and tasteful food. I would highly recommend her services to anyone looking for a personal chef and will definitely request her again in the future.
Linda worked with me to lose weight and gain confidence working with my peers and in social settings. She created balanced meal plans, an exercise regimen and taught me about portion control. She also discussed the importance of sleeping and managing my stress levels to maintain my weight, energy level and mental clarity at work. We worked together for 3 months. I would highly recommend her if you are looking to get results!
Meraki is a Greek word used to describe putting a lot of love, creativity and soul into something which is why Jory Pomeranz chose the name. It is easy to smell, taste and see that a lot of love goes into each Meraki Meal. Jory has a natural ability to combine flavors. He can time every course so they are not only cooked at the perfect temperature, but served at the correct temperature and add flare to something basic like a chicken thigh. Even the grill marks on a piece of chicken are perfectly spread out and just enough to give the chicken a grill flavor without ruining the juicy tenderness we all strive for when making chicken. Jory can make things that you hated as a kid taste delectable. Jory adds spices and sauces up until the minute prior to serving to make sure each plate is perfect. I once saw Jory save what was about to be terrible chicken tacos by creating a homemade taco sauce from a nearly empty refrigerator. With Meraki Meals the food suits the season. Who wants to eat watermelon in October when pomegranate and apples are so delicious. Every Meraki Meal tastes like the season and uses fresh fruits and vegetables. Meraki Meals put a healthy spin on what looks and tastes like a calorie nightmare, but each meal is filled with proteins and vitamins. Not only is the flavor impeccable, the presentation is a work of art. Even when catering for 35-40 people, Meraki Meals are served in beautiful silver dishes. Meraki Meals are great for crowds of any size. I have to make a conscious effort not to scrape my plate clean every time I have had Meraki Meals. I highly recommend Meraki Meals for a party of any size, but especially 8-12 people because this might give the chef a chance to sit and talk with you which is a treat of its own!
We hired Unique Luxury Catering to prepare a family dinner for 8 for my wife's birthday on our patio at Pelican Hill.Chef Brad prepared a fabulous meal topped off by a scratch made carrot cake that was divine.The reduction sauce with vanilla bean added was incredible to plate everything in. This was a great meal,for a great celebration in a great setting. Unique will deliver a great experience for whatever need your occasion requires.Thanks Steve for providing a great experience !
Discovering FoodPeople was a dream come true for this busy business owner. To me, the thought of planning for and preparing meals is overwhelming and intimidating. And as a single women with no kids, it’s hard to justify spending the time to cook just for myself. When I met Eren and Chef Emre I felt comfortable knowing that they understood me, my lifestyle and my food preferences. They delivered on all of their promises and continually go above and beyond to exceed my expectations. I would highly recommend FoodPeople to any individuals or families who value high quality, wholesome food prepared with great care and attention.
