Marcel was amazing! It was a five star experience from the service he offered, to the food he cooked, to the time he took to prep for my event. We had two chefs at my event who were amazed and very impressed with his cooking! I highly recommend him!
Marc is fantastic! This is the first time i have used a personal chef and can say its the best choice ive made.. I train gym 4-5 times per week and approached mark to make me 6 meals for 6 days of the week all equally portioned with proteins and carbs. The food was delivered fresh every two days and packed in plastic containers. It was even labelled with the nutritional values. The food itself was restaurant quality! I have eaten out at restaurants alot over the years so was little worried about how the quality of the meat would be and how well it would be cooked. Marc uses the freshest ingredients and cooks the products to perfections! I would highly recommend mark wether its a small dinner gathering or something more serious like myself with 36 meals per week! Thanks Marc
The experience was incredible. I needed a professional chef at late notice in San Clemente and he helped complete the menu with me under my budget and have spectacular food. I had at least two of everything (sides, entrees, and dessert). I could not have had a better food setup overlooking the beach in San Clemente.
So Devine Catering catered an engagement party for my daughter. I can't say enough how awesome they are. I had never hired a caterer before and was a bit out of my element. Chef Alexa was super cool and kind enough to walk me through the process, meet with me and really did an outstanding job. Chef Alexa and her entire team are just awesome. Everyone at our party was impressed. Just can't say enough great things!
I attended a 16 person dinner for which Steven was the private chef. Overall the food was phenomenal. Presentation and flavors were top notch. Additionally, the staff provided was excellent. Great evening overall, in no small part thanks to Steven.
BIG MANN BBQ (Roger Mann) was amazing & his meals were even better!! He was very attentive and helpful in catering to our crew. He brought special meals for dietarily restricted crew members. We are very happy with his work, delicious cuisine, and positive attitude. LOVED BIG MANN BBQ!!!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND. Thank you!!
We had such a fabulous time at Chef David Gussin's pop up dinner. There was the perfect mix of beautiful ambience, great music, friendly people, and of course the incredible four course meal, which was acommpanied with Chef David's signature complimentary craft cocktails. Cannot wait to attend his next pop up dinner!!
Nancy looked so great, after a 6-month break of not having seen her. I asked what she'd done and she shared about the Fast Metabolism Diet. I hired her to come to my home and cook 28 days of recipes with me. She was organized and skillful as a teacher. Her follow-up coaching with me and my daughter has been a great support. We are benefiting tremendously from Nancy's experience as a personal chef and caterer. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
Chef Lofthouse is incredible. He catered my 26th birthday party and fed 32 famished twenty somethings. Everything was amazing from the stuffed mushrooms to the bbq sliders! He was prompt, responsive and immensely attentive. I never saw an empty tray the entire night. This allowed me to relax and enjoy the party because I knew that he was 100% on top of it. We all know how hard it is to let go when you're hosting a party because you want everything to be great and your guests to be happy. I don't think I've ever had a party run as smoothly as this one and Chef Lofthouse was a big part of that. I will not only be hiring him again but I've already referred him to all my friends and clients. Thank you for a great night Chef!
Greg is an outstanding chef and a wonderful person. He delivered a 5-course dinner that was out of this world, and entertained the guests with his bright personality and deep knowledge of food. We hired Greg for a private birthday celebration for my girlfriend, and it was the most special experience we've ever had together. Period. Greg helped us decide on dishes based on my girlfriend's preferences (as he says, do's and don'ts), and wow, he delivered above and beyond our expectations. Each course was meticulously thought out and executed. By the end of the dinner, all of our guests wanted his contact information. If you want a private chef that will deliver an outstanding meal and experience, go with Greg.
Chad was very pleasant from the start. His home was very inviting, clean, and safe. He gave me a debrief on his experiences and specialties. His background in Kinesiology works in his favor, he is very aware of the anatomy, and knows exactly how to target the pressure points, properly. The mood was set, and he use an adequate amount of oil (I dislike for a masseur to use too much), and he was conversational and kind the entire time. Additionally, his height worked in his favor, as well, because he is able to move fluidly and adequately apply his body weight to maximize the massage experience. I left feeling light, loose, and less stress. Lastly, Chad also took the time to educate me on the muscles groups and small parts of the body/muscles that I was not aware of. Overall, great experience and I will return for another great session.
Jessie is an absolute doll and a fantastic chef! i highly recommend her for any event.
Betti was fantastic!! She was very responsive and catered to our requests. She showed up right when she said she would and left the kitchen spotless when she was done. The meal was absolutely delicious, from the appetizers all the way to dessert. Her banana foster was probably the best dessert I’ve ever had! I would highly recommend her to anyone in the area looking for a private chef!
Wendell catered a private event, for a group of all vegan / plant based guests. The food was phenomenal and some of the best plant based food I've had. There was a large variety of flavors and dishes - greens, tempeh, tofu, seitan, tons of veggies, quinoa and more. The variety of food was so good, I am looking to bring him as a private chef for a series of wellness retreats.
My partner and I are busy individuals who recently decided to shift to a plant-based diet. We had no idea what to do, how to get protein (lol) and what to cook. Bekah came highly recommended from a friend who has been using her personal chef services for quite a while now. Bekah's knowledge of vegan cooking and plant-based nutrition was obvious during our first consultation. When we tasted her food, the deal was sealed. Whenever we are in town we have her cook us lunches and dinners to keep our diets on track and energy levels up! She can satisfy any craving or cuisine choice. Can't recommend Bekah enough, if you are ready to get your health and diet in order without giving up any taste or flavor, get on with it and give Bekah a call!!
I found Katheryne through a friend who recently used her for an event and only heard amazing things. I throw dinner parties that are usually connected to a restaurant but decided to work with a personal chef that i could curate my menu with. Katheryne was everything and more then i expected. She came so prepared with suggestions and idea she to filter off of mine. The menu was made with all fresh ingredients that she went that morning to get from the farmers market. Her timely manner on creating the dishes to getting them out to my guests was impeccable. I will 100% be using Katheryne for future events.
WOW! Chef Asheesh is very responsive to our needs we had to change menu several time on him and he was able to accommodate our last minute requests. His food was simply put delicious and exquisite...
We hired Melissa to cook for us for ongoing restrictive diet-friendly meals. We had three criteria and passed these with flying colours. 1. She is incredibly organized from menu planning to day of cooking to final delivery and storage of food. This is so critical for ongoing bulk meal preparation. 2. She has such a calm, friendly, and sociable demeanor. For someone to be coming to your home on a regular basis, we've learned that personalities meshing are so important. 3. And the above are the least of the compliments. Her food is amazing! As NY foodies, my husband and I are very particular about our food. Melissa has made no salt/no oil/no carb/no sugar taste better and brighter than any 5 star NY restaurant. We look forward to continuing with Melissa as our chef.
Emily is the perfect mix between an angel, the most professional business woman and your dream chef. I will never forget the first time I tasted her kitchari and I still dream about it! I cannot wait for her to prepare meals for our family again, she is our absolute favorite!
Ryan is absolutely amazing. The food was wonderful, Ryan is an a amazing chef and such a lovely person too. Thankyou so much!
We were lucky to have Rene cook for our family of 4 as our personal chef when he lived in the San Francisco area. We have 2 picky eaters in our family, yet Rene's dinners were always a hit with everyone. Rene was professional and fast. He somehow made a gourmet meal in our little kitchen in a very short amount of time. The meat and fish were always perfectly cooked, never dry. Rene's food was fresh, healthy and delicious!
