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

I truly enjoyed working with Amy. I had never hired a private chef for an event before so was nervous about quality and professionalism but I couldn't have made a better choice than Amy! She was super-responsive and pro-active with ideas and suggestions. We had a pretty hard-to-please group and everyone commented how wonderful everything tasted and especially how nice it was to not have to slave over the meal in the kitchen. Amy's pricing is also very fair and open to working with various budget ranges. There is no doubt I (and the dinner guests) will be contacting Amy in the future! Look no further than Amy...she's the best!

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 Carmi’s meals are fresh and organic and just plain yummy!

Greg was everything I could have wanted in a personal dining chef! Such a warm personality, professional yet personal, and off the chart food. I could go on and on about the food combinations, the incredible taste, and presentation of a five star meal, made with love. You will not be disappointed with Greg: hands down, a one of a kind experience:))

The response was quick and efficient so that part I would give 5 stars. The part that I wish was a little more professional was the presentation of the food. We had to ask the chef to describe his food and we had to set our own table, which in the past when we've had personal chefs that was done for us. The halibut was cooked perfectly and we enjoyed our meal very much. The chef was pleasant and you could tell he "loved" what he is doing which is so important. If we ever come back to Terranea we would use the Catering Carnival again.

We hired Chef Mumsie to provide a special Birthday treat for our Mom. We ask her to prepare two dinners a week and deliver them for a period of two weeks. The food is spectacular! Chef Mumsie's attention to detail, personal touch and caring nature make for an exquisite dinning experience. She even delivered the first dinner herself. Our Mom got a kick out of seeing her in her tall chef hat. We have decided to extend our contract, as our Mom is enjoying having this treat to look forward to. Her only complaint is that the food is so good, she can't stop eating! I would highly recommend Chef Mumsie for your next event or need for a personal chef.

The catering staff was amazing and polite. We got one chef, one assistant, one server and one DJ. They arrived on time. Server helped us set up and clean up everything. DJ was great! They did a wonderful job! Price is very reasonable and acceptable. Paid them with extra tips when service is finished. Love the team! Recommend for any events!

Understand my trepidation never having a professional Chef cooking for me in my humble home. I was seconds away from meeting and greeting the highly acclaimed Celebrity Chef, MARK KEARNEY and his AWESOME associate Victoria. I could belabor the OBVIOUS, however, kudos for the preparation, presentation , moreover, QUALITY of the Signature Cocktails, Appetizers, and Dinner OUTSTANDING. Another exceptional highlight of our evening was Chef Mark Kearney himself. So easy to be around, not pretentious, humble, funny, kind and genuinely warm. If you should ever have the opportunity to meet this amazing man and have him prepare OATMEAL you will be impressed

Valerie is an outstanding and professional chef, and I would highly recommend her. She took the time to get to know our family, and customized the food to meet our needs and preferences. She has a huge repertoire of menu choices and provided us with well balanced meal options and always a variety to choose from. Her food is absolutely delicious, and most importantly, always healthy (an important factor for us with a toddler). We miss her so much and hope we get a chance to work with her again in the future.

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!

I hired Rich for a small event at my house yesterday. Before the party, Rich was always answering my phone calls and texts with any question or concerns I had. The day of the party he did an EXCELLENT job bartending and walking around to make sure everyones glasses we full! He even went to the extent to help entertain my 2 year old during dinner time and helped the chef move empty dishes! He was truly amazing and a great price and i will definitely use him again!

It was a pleasure working with Diane and her food was quite tasty. She made my husband's birthday celebration joyful and may life so much easier at a very busy time. This was our first experience with a personal chef and we will certainly consider doing it again in the future for another special occasion.
