Debbie was absolutely outstanding. We hosted a dinner party for 12 people at our home and wanted to ensure it was a special experience for all. Debbie came up with a delicious and practical menu that was both delicious and took into account various dietary restrictions. She arrived early to prepare, was flexible to our timing when things started a little late, and ensured everything was tidy/clean before she left. In terms of food, everything was fantastic, but the Chicken Marbella and the Apple Crisp were especially delicious. Our guests left asking whether Debbie could help them with their next meal. We would highly recommend her :)!

Alisa was asked to do a drop off breakfast for our Corporate Farming Operations Team. The farm is in a remote location and we asked her to cater breakfast. She was on time, the food was perfect and was enjoyed by all!

The Untamed Chef is not your ordinary caterer. Albert Hernandez is a professional chef who takes pride in all he does. Chef Albert was wonderful to work with from the very first hello. He took pride in putting together the menu that would fit what my daughter wanted. Just explaining everything over the phone tasted delicious. Not only did he provide delicious food, the entire staff was very pleasant. He arrived on time and after providing our meal, he left the kitchen spotless!!! I would recommend The Untamed Chef (Albert Hernandez) for your next time you need a professional chef.

Boris came to our house and taught us an intermediate level cooking class. We were able to improve our chopping skills and create a whole Indian meal. The food was delicious and Boris was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Great overall experience!

I've used Polkadot Dinners to cater 2 different events. One was a high school event and the other was for a company lunch. Both times I felt she went above and beyond with not only her service but the food provided. I will definitely use her again if I ever need a caterer

I had a fantastic experience with Kincy Catering. All of the food dishes were great! The ribs were tender and juicy and had a very good flavor. My wife especially enjoyed the smoked chicken. Kincy also served a delicious macaroni and cheese for one of the side dishes that was a perfect complimant to the meal. One of the biggest selling points to Kincy Catering is the variety of different cuisines they offer, from traditional Soul food to Mexican and Chinese. They simingly can cater to all your request. I highly recommend Kincy Catering and i will defiantly use them in the future.

Tim Shields is a talented culinary artist. He prepared for us a delicious four-course birthday dinner including a luscious soup and cake from scratch. Tim arrived prepared with everything needed from ingredients and tasting spoons to a full range of cook ware. During the preparation and meal, his knowledge and flair provided us with information and inspiration. The delicious food was well paired with his interesting contributions to our conversation. Tim gave us a truly joyful evening, and we look forward to having him back in the future!

We hired Farm to Table (Zachary Albright) to come to our house and prepare a meal for a birthday dinner for 14 people. The food was ABSOLUTELY amazing I wouldn't change a thing. The menu was extensive and the price was reasonable. I would suggest that he bring a helper as it was a little overwhelming for one person to prepare. I would highly recommend Farm to Table.

I couldn't have asked for a better experience having Chrysalis Catering working my son's graduation party. Tameeka had great communication skills. She always kept in contact with me before and during the event. She was professional and attentive to the needs of the party and made sure the meal was prepared on time. My guests were also impressed with Tameeka and asked for her card to cater their future events. This was the first time I used this app and my wife and I were pleasantly surprised. Chrysalis Catering is top notch.

It was a real treat to relax with friends and have Tom prepare dinner for us! He prepared a delicious meal using fresh, local ingredients. He was organized, timely and very professional and pleasant. He also left the kitchen looking exactly as it had when he started. I would definitely recommend him to others!

    Laura has done appetizers at my home for 15. Her crab mousse was a real hit. She catered my niece's wedding originally for 40 people and then was told a few days before that it would be 60. She did a fantastic job and had to cater to vegetarians, gluten free and vegans as well as carnivores! She also did all my meals for me for about 6 weeks when I was house bound. She is very easy to work with, personable, competent and creative. 3 completely different jobs and all done too perfection!

    Daun is now in Lodi but covers a large surrounding area as well. I needed an alternate to fast food and typical restaurants and junk food I would get on the run. Daun is very knowledgeable,experienced, and flexible and prepares healthy meals for me and delivers 3 times a week. Waaay better than any commercial food delivery I have tried in the past and keeps me satisfied and out of the drive through. Daun makes this an affordable luxury (necessity if I want to improve my health) that I thought would be too expensive. If I added up all my receipts for fast food, restaurants and junk food in the recent past I think I am actually spending less now to have fresh, delicious, healthy meals on a daily basis. Life is better now because I have more time and less stress, in addition to eating a much healthier menu.

    I couldn't be happier with Francesca and her amazing food! From the minute Francesca arrived she was professional, yet friendly and easygoing. She prepared the meal while my family continually commented on the mouthwatering aromas. Every dish was absolutely delectable. The caprese was so fresh, the lasagna with handmade noodles was indulgent, the osso buco was deeply flavorful, and the cheesecake and panna cotta were rich and satisfying. My entire family enthusiastically agreed that we would hire Francesca again the next time we wanted a personal chef. P.S. The leftovers were just as good the next day!

    I loved my experience with this chef. On short notice he was able to deliver on all my expectations. He was personable and i felt as if i knew him forever. His qaulity of food preparation and presentation shows his passion of catering food and baked delicacies. Everything this chef touches resonates through his personality. I would highly recommend this chef and chef wife. Great people and company!

    It is my pleasure to offer a review of Sylvia's catering, culinary expertise and work ethic. I have enjoyed years of her cooking as she and I were coworkers. In addtion she has catered a couple parties for our family. Sylvia is classically trained so she may provide any food item or method requested. She is also of course very proficient in kitchen safety, equipment, hygiene, prep, timing and temperature requirements. Now for food! Sylvia has a special sense for pairing and encorporating big flavors and complimentary textures. Whether is is fried chicken and mashed potatoes you are after or exotic flavors of the Far East and Carribean Islands, she can provide. Personally I prefer the latter and the spices and flavors Sylvia creates are completely delicious. Some examples include her Chana Alu (curry chick pea and potato), chilie spiced salsas and chutneys, and tangy tomato marinaras. Our family perferes the Caribbean flavors and a recent menu included jerk spiced chicken (and tofu), coconut prawn, chana alu, spicy mango chutney, yougart/ dill chutney, green salad and cilantro/ lime rice. Sylvia graces any atmoshere with exuberance, style, positivity and professionalism. Highly recommened!

    I hosted an important client event and it just HAD to be perfect. The team from You've Been Served showed up on time, totally prepared and quickly set to work... Voila! The presentation was spectacular, the food was amazing and the guests were very impressed. Several of my clients have since contacted me about the catering and I'm happy to refer them to YBS.
