I had Paul over to my house for the second time when I was hosting a holiday dinner party for 7. Paul is uber passionate about what he does and it is extremely evident in the food he makes. It is a five star meal in your own home. He prepared appetizers and full course meal. Butternut squash soup that was to die for, salad, steak (everyone asked for different temps from rare to well done and all were perfectly done), veggies, smashed potatoes and dessert. I have a decent wine selection at my house and Cliff and Paul pair the wines with each part of the meal. He brings Cliff with him to serve as he is cooking and he is just a pleasure to be around. The first time I had Paul over I had 10 people and he executes the dinner with perfection. It is was all girls and we can get deep into girl talk and they just rolled with it, we all felt very comfortable around them both. He is worth every cent we paid, and this won't be the last time I invite him (and cliff) into my home.

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

This was my first time using a personal chef, so I was a bit timid. Chef Kwasi made this an enjoyable experience through enhanced communication and superb professionalism. You can taste the passion in his cooking, his meal surpassed all expectations. His presentation was an art rarely seen. He was well prepared with all needed equipment, and even cleaned up before leaving. I highly recommend Chef Kwasi for any personal or professional cooking needs.

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 can't express enough just how much of a pleasure it was having Michelle as a catering partner. She is a true asset to anyone who is looking for a winning caterer. I have worked with Michelle on numerous occasions and she has always gone above and beyond the call of duty. From her work ethics to her overall performance and professionalism she takes pride in everything she does. I have known Michelle to be the go-to person when needing to get things done. She's always willing to help where she can and will volunteer her time and services for a good cause. I enjoyed working with her and look forward to many more opportunities of working together in the future. If you're looking for a great caterer, Michelle is the one!

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 must admit that I was a bit skeptical about raw foods, BUT Chef Tena *truly* changed my mind (and body). She has an innate talent, not only with recipe creation, and food preparation, but also with making food *beautiful.* I didn't have any real favorites, since they were ALL over-the-top delicious! Her foods make by body SING and feel ALIVE!

I HAVE HAD THE EXPERIENCE OF PURCHASING A FEW MEALS WITH CoPETERSON'S CATERING. THE MEALS WERE ALWAYS TASTY AND THE SERVICE IS PROFESSIONAL. IF YOU WANT TO TAKE GOOD BBQ AWAY FROM HOME THIS IS YOUR PLACE.
