The 2 people that came to cook were very nice and did a good job with the food. It was unfortunate that the order they recieved was missing the chips and the beverage that they were supposed to include.(the company did let us deduct a small amount to cover it and we had to run buy it ourselves.) They cooks were also told the incorrect time to come, luckily they were early and not late, (because being late would have been a problem, but early just meant that they were there before they needed to be early was much better than late. the food was good and in the end we enjoyed everything. I just suggest that you double check with the on what was ordered and your plans on line and on the phone before hand. (I did speak with them the day before and I did have it written in an email--so I am not sure how it was goofed up) All that said, it was a successful party and the food was plentiful and tasty .

I organized a trip for 25 people to stay at a villa in Tuscany, Italy this summer for 8 days and was fortunate to have Lilian as our house Chef. She did a fabulous job on every detail including meal planning, shopping the Italian markets, kitchen prep work, cooking and presentation. The villa had a commercial kitchen which she handled expertly and created delicious meals for the group. She even came in under budget! I would highly recommend Busy Bee and plan to use her for my next event.

We have had personal chefs in the past and all were good experiences, but Shawna was a cut above. The experience that she provided was exemplary in every facet. Shawna was personable, prepared, and her food was exquisite. She will be called upon in the future to cater any event we may have. We give her our highest recommendation.

I have had the pleasure of knowing and eating June Sper's cooking over the past ten years. June can make anything taste great. I.e. June was cooking lunch for me to help me eat healthy. June made me mashed potatoes out of cauliflower. All I can say is I hate cauliflower but I loved how she made the cauliflower into mashed potatoes. I have had the pleasure of June's food from soup to salads, sandwiches to Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner. I worked with June in 3 different companies and once June brought food in one time at the companies people would beg her to make make food to bring in. In summary June Sper is the best Cook/Chef I know. If you looking for someone to cater your event you cannot go wrong with June Sper.

Simply amazing! We're host quite a few events, these folks are so easy to work with and our guests raved about the food- and...there was LOTS of food. They arrived early, set up and began working - the aroma was wonderful! At the end, we had to tell them it was OK to leave----they didn't want cook and leave. They made sure everyone was full. They neatly put all of the left over food in my kitchen. We were so impressed and so glad we found them....they were a true pleasure to work with. Thank you so much!

Fantastic meal, way exceeded expectations and was much more affordable than other private chefs we contacted. Would highly recommend to anyone hosting a dinner!! Originally we looked at making a group dinner reservation to dine out in Palm Springs for a birthday party, having Cucina Migrante come to our vacation rental made for a more relaxing and unforgettable dining experience. Francesco and Adisa are true pros!

Kevie is a gifted pastry chef whose modern desserts showcase her unique experience. She prepared a beautiful dessert bar table for a large event of 600+ people that our company was sponsoring. The treats were delicious and nutritious baked using our Sugar 2.0 product which includes soluble fiber and probiotics (www.sugar2pt0.com). Her recipes are incredible, and you will be pleased with her sweet treats for your friends and family. She is a professional and fun to work with too.

I loved my interactive, online cooking class with Chef Patsy! Before I get started, I must say I was extremely impressed with the integrated video conferencing service that Trainasium uses for their online class offerings. The connection was amazing and my screen didn't freeze once during the class. Just a side note for anyone not sure about interactive online cooking classes. I have never made a pie from scratch before and Chef Patsy took us step by step on how to prepare the pie dough and the filling. She gave each and every one of us a warm greetings as we entered the online class. I loved the fact that we could ask Chef Patsy questions during class and have her take a look at our mixture if we were not sure about something. It was like having Chef Patsy in my own kitchen. It was the cooking lesson without the headache. While waiting for the pie to finish cooking, Chef Patsy amazed us with various ways to use left over pie dough and different pie decorating techniques. It was so amazing to be able to celebrate with Chef Patsy and the other students once our pie was finished. My sense of accomplishment was through the roof at that point. The cost of the cooking class was way less than going to a traditional cooking class and I loved the fact that I was in my kitchen which made me so much more confident while attempting this creation. The part I loved the most about this interactive online cooking lesson was that I was able to do it with my sister-in-law! I loved being able to see Chef Patsy and all of the other students that live in different places right from my Laptop. I will definitely be taking more online cooking lessons with Chef Patsy.

Virginia has been a life saver! I had a baby a month ago and have two other kids. I needed some fresh and delicious home cooked meals delivered during my maternity time. We do the menu planning together and she sends suggestions based on our needs. Currently we have vegetarian family in town and she's been making delicious dishes for the whole family.

I have had the pleasure of working with Pret on several occasions and every time Monique just knocks it out of the park. Her culinary skills are top notch and presentation is always outstanding. She genuinely cares about what she does and the people she works for and it absolutely shows in everything she does. I would recommend Pret Gourmet in a heartbeat. Monique will knock your socks off.
