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.

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.

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.

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!

I am a mother of three children and I hired Chris to be our family's private chef. She also was the chef for our occasional dinner parties chef as well as coordinated them for the last two years. We absolutely enjoyed her cooking and loved her easy going nature. Our family will miss Chris profusely as we are moving to Austin.

Chef David did a fantastic job catering my daughter's wedding. He was so easy to work with. He helped us out with ideas to customize a delicious menu that satisfied vegetarians as well as non vegetarians. Food and service were exceptional. I recommend chef David to anyone. He will truly put 110% in making your event memorable.

Awesome experience from start to finish. Almost more than the amazing food, we loved having Joan in our house. We instantly hit it off and our kids loved her as well. Joan and I planned a menu for an informal dinner party for my wife's birthday that consisted of salad, bolognese, and a deconstructed cannoli...all made from scratch in our kitchen. The food was absolutely delicious and her company was delightful. Next time we have a need for a personal chef, we will go straight to Joan!

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 highly recommend her and am impressed with her baking techniques and capacity to foresee the outcomes! Thank you so much Kevies Kitchen! Everyone loved your yummy treats, you made our event a huge success!

Chef Marckende was amazing! He came up with an incredibly creative menu (all vegan/vegetarian) with dumplings, potstickers, ramen, and an amazing chocolate, strawberry, blueberry layer cake. He was very responsive in the planning process, even coordinating the on-site setup/visit the night before because we were celebrating a birthday with a group of friends at an AirBnb. Couldn't have imagined a better dining experience for celebrating a birthday with the group of 11. He was very professional, came with all of the necessary supplies, took care of service and clean-up. If you're looking to choose a chef for an event, you're missing out if you don't choose Chef Marckende. He'll create a memorable meal and take care of all the details so you don't have to even think about doing anything else other than enjoying a great meal with great company.

Chef Andrew Selz was a pleasure to work with. His charismatic personality, attention to detail, creativity and flare in the kitchen made for an unforgettable evening. His creations far surpassed our expectations, both in taste and presentation, and the effort he put into making sure the evening was perfect, down to the the linen cloth was exceptional. I would highly recommend Chef Selz to anyone looking to hire a chef to cater. You will not regret your decision!

Chris catered an event at our home for roughly 40 people and everything went extremely well. He was right on schedule and had everything under control which impressed us. The food was amazing and most (if not all) of my guests commented on how much they enjoyed the food and presentation. Everything went smoothly from start to finish. Having Chris there let us actually enjoy a party at our home for once! I whole heartedly recommend Chris.
