We wanted to put on a dinner at our house for our Advisory Board and Senior Management team. The problem is that after a long day of meetings who has the energy to cook? So we decided to search for a personal chef that could put together a meal that would rival a five star restaurant. Michael and his staff showed up on time and not only knocked the meal out of the park, they also cleaned up! I would highly recommend Gourmet Your Way Catering and Personal Chef!

Jose is very responsive and has great service, along with him being a great chef of course! He traveled to my parents house for us to do a tasting for our wedding and we were blown away. It was amazing. We got so many compliments from our friends and family about how good the food was. With that being said I have a couple nitpicky complaints for constructive feedback: The plates and silverware were not what we had originally discussed at the tasting. They were supposed to be the nice plastic that looked real and we got clear which looked cheesy to us. It could have had to do with the fact that we did the tasting about a year in advance and things could have been forgotten or overlooked but the change was never communicated to us. Also, my husband requested to have a spicy BBQ sauce during our tasting and the BBQ sauce was on the side at that time. We discussed having spicy and mild options. I was very excited for the pulled pork at the wedding but it had spicy BBQ sauce all over it! I thought it was going to be on the side, like it was during the tasting. It was so spicy that I couldn't even eat it. :( One of our aunts was not able to eat any of the meat because it was "too peppery" but that was the only other complaint that we got. Other than that everyone loved it. Everything was great and I would still highly recommend Mr. WorldWide Catering, it just wasn't quite perfect for my 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.

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.

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!

I am beyond grateful to Thumbtack for connecting me to Chef Keith Prante and his team at Hautè Productions Events and Catering to cater my mom's 80th birthday celebration. They are absolutely A-MAZING! Chef Prante was one of two chefs who responded to my request via Thumbtack, and I also received a personal referral. Neither of the other caterers offered ANYWHERE NEAR the quality, selections, variety and value that Hautè offered at my price point. We had our tasting today, and it absolutely sealed the deal! Everything was delicious and the presentation was outstanding. I highly recommend Hautè Productions to any potential customer who appreciates excellence, accommodation and genuine customer service.

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.

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.

Ashley made the cake for my wedding - a tall task for some, but not for her. To say she knocked it out of the park would be an understatement. First of all the cake - this thing was the simplest, elegant, and most beautiful piece of work in pastry form that I've ever seen and tasted. Ashley's passion for her craft really shines through in her work (see the picture). And second of all the professionalism - Ashley is one bad-@$$ pastry chef, and she is an absolute joy to work with. Super responsive, super helpful, super sweet, super down-to-earth. I can't recommend Ashley enough. 6 stars!

Gigi's meals are outstanding. They are truly nutritious and delicious. I have a son with allergies and Gigi was able to create great tasting meals that are Gluten-Free and Allergy Friendly. It is such a pleasure to have quality, healthy, convenient meals everyday. The stress of what to cook is gone - we just warm, eat and enjoy. I highly recommend hiring Gigi as your Personal Chef!

Amazing surprise dinner for my wife. I wanted to do something special and have never hired a private chef before. Nikki was great! She helped me plan the entire evening. The menu was perfect and she even helped me set the mood by creating the most romantic setting ever. I could never have done this by myself and wife absolutely loved it!
