We were hosting a cocktail party for local political candidates and wanted to do things right - a nice setting with good wine and upscale appetizers. So we turned to Chef Meeshell and she did not let us down. She created fantastic appetizers that we never would have thought of on our own (for example, grilled shrimp in a shot glass filled with soup!), she decorated the table nicely, and she hustled all evening, working hard to keep us all well served. And it didn’t hurt one bit that she was probably the prettiest caterer our guests had ever seen. If you want to ensure your event is a success, I highly recommend you call Chef Meeshell!Nov 21, 2016Chef Meeshell's reply
Dearest Eric & Frances, Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity for being my very first local clients upon my unexpected move to our Cambria! Your faith in me and my services alone I am so appreciative and grateful for. Your continued loyalty, high appraise and gratitude means more to me than I can ever express. Please know I am here for you both any time any place at your service. You are such remarkable genuine "neat" people and such a pleasure to have served. Yours truly, Meeshell
It's a pleasure to rave about Chef Meeshell. She has cooked for our family for years -- for weekly drop-offs, and for dinner parties and for big catered affairs. The food is always outstanding and beautifully prepared. When my mother was ill and on a special diet, Meeshell was expert at preparing healthy alternatives that made her condition more enjoyable. It's safe to say our annual holiday party is often attended by friends who always want to know -- if Meeshell is making her lobster mac apps this year -- not to mention the jewel cous cous and the special salmon. They say they are our friends--but they are also fans of Chef Meeshell. And to top it off she is a lovely person, who is a pleasure to have in your home. Our dog loves her too. And last but not least, we eat more healthy meals because of her. It's a win-win-win with Chef Meeshell.Apr 26, 2015

Meeshell has made cooking fun for us my daughter and I look forward to are lessons.I feel so blessed to have found her and relieved that there are a variety of options for my daughter and as a result of her expertise the whole family is eating healthier and is losing weight. I can't thank you enough for putting me in touch with her.Dec 11, 2014Verified
Meeshell Block has prepared some of my most memorable meals. As our personal cook, our dinner table traveled the world with new experiences of international recipes, while still savoring our favorite Meeshell dishes that we grew to love so much. Block rocks.Feb 15, 2018Chef Meeshell's reply

We were extremely pleased with Meeshell's service. I would think there's no one better than her in our area to suit people special dietary needs.Oct 8, 2015Chef Meeshell's reply
