Marcel created a delicious menu based on my preferences to serve breakfast, lunch and dinner to a hungry group of 15. Incredibly professional and friendly, he has a real passion for cooking. He got a round of applause from our group when he left and then we even brought him back last minute to cook an additional meal for us one day because enjoyed it so much. The food is fresh, healthy and flavorful. We will definitely work with him again.
I hired Haute Productions for a private cooking class for a bachelor party event, and we had the best time. Keith was an awesome teacher and host, he made the experience wonderful. Everyone had a blast and it was the best part of the entire weekend. Not to mention the fact that the food was awesome! I would highly recommend using Haute Productions for any event you may have.
I have had the experience of tasting and enjoying Mr. segar's culinary services in many occasions and find him to be an excellent cook. His cooking abilities are very gourmet and he is very good at improvising and coming up with exquisit results.
Valerie started cooking for my family this week. It has been an absolute pleasure to work with her and eat her tasty and healthy food. Highly recommend.
My roommate and I are on a kick to just get healthier and we know a part of that is changing our eating habits because we eat out a lot. Not by choice but out of necessity because neither of us can really cook. In comes Chef Renee and Chef Jimmy we weren't sure what to expect because neither of us grew up in cooking families, hence the lack of know-how on our parts. We hired them hoping to just learn the basics but we got sooooo much more than that. We felt so empowered after just one lesson with Chef Renee that we decided to keep going and now we work with her or Chef Jimmy once a week. We feel so much healthier and happier knowing what is exactly going into our food as well as a great sense of accomplishment. My boyfriend also thanks you since I can finally cook him a meal. We still have a lot more we want to learn but they are so helpful and patient that we can't wait to continue the journey.
Shelly not only makes vegan cooking simple and delicious, she provides the tools and tricks you need to prepare meals for your family! She teaches with love and passion and educates the public about plant-based nutrition and provides the info you need to make the switch from omnivore to vegan or enhance your current vegan lifestyle. I have been vegetarian for 20+ years and vegan for 9 years and I learned so much from Shelly just from one class! I can’t wait to learn more, as she has so much to offer and an entire cook book worth of recipes in her head to impress any chef!
Elaine helped my daughter and I with cooking lessons and menu ideas that would work with both of our dietary issues. We spent an afternoon together - through the magic of web cams. We prepared a vegetable lasagna, a spinach and strawberry salad, the most amazing miso soup ever and a squash and edamame treat that was out of this world. The dishes we prepared were made from fresh, organic ingredients that were gluten free, light on salt and most importantly quick and easy to prepare in our busy schedules. Elaine took every culinary and dietary issue of ours and came back with brilliant solutions. Elaine is knowledgeable and approachable with the ability to communicate what she knows without being preachy. I've ordered the Herblends seasonings, and she also has a cookbook. I'm very impressed her knowledge and abilities make great food and show us how she does it.
Chef Jay is such an amazing warm and kind spirit. Her food is prepared with love, and you can taste it! We have monthly cooking lessons with my son and myself and he LOVES it! Jay takes a fun scientific approach to explaining food, often giving my son the tips and tricks he needs to create all types of cool things like parmesan cheese foam and teaching him how to make rainbow mozzarella cheese for his homemade pizzas - something he found beyond amazing. I enjoy the variety she offers - vegetarian dishes for me and kid-friendly gluten free meals for my son. She has taught me so much about preparing food for my boy that he can safely eat and enjoy without getting bored, and for that I am grateful. If you'd like flavor-filled food and a chef who has the patience of a saint, you'll for sure find that in Jay. Oh yea, ask her to make her amazing fried mac & cheese!
Few chefs have as wide a level of knowledge about not just the food but also wine accompaniments. Ed has been a "foodie" since about 30 years before the term came into wide usage!! He has excellent sources for all his ingredients and his preparations are thorough and well-thought out. If you want to feature particular types of cuisine or particular wines, he will match his menu to any specifications you might have. Not quite sure why he's never had his own restaurant, although cooking for a living is not quite the same as cooking for the love of cooking.
Jeanne is an excellent chef and really listens to her clients. She is punctual, thorough, and her food is amazing. Whether she is cooking for a family or an event everything is fabulous. Her presentation is artistic and spot on. I highly recommend Jeanne. You will not be disappointed. She is exceptional!!!
Peggy C. I had tried Heathers Savory Artichoke Heart, Crispy Sage, Caramelized Onion and Italian Cheese Quicheand knew it was good; along with her very special (& somewhat decadent) Savory Caramelized Vidalia Onion Cheesecake_Spread, so I ordered both for the holidays. They were made with love and care and brought to my door. I loved having them on handas you know there are always more mouths to feed around the holidays! The care and pride she takes in her work really shows. The dip/spread is a real treatvery elegant and rich. The quiche is unlike any weve ever had and is truly delicious. I would highly recommend her and her cooking for anyones event or home.
Linda came to our home and showed us how to cook several dishes in a healthy and delicious way. She made the process very fun. It felt like a party. We learned a lot about cooking and eating healthfully and will be able to use that information in our daily food prep. I highly recommend her and am sure you would be happy that you enlisted her services.
We hired Jory for a 20 person office party. Jory's cooking was immaculately presented and so flavorful. We wanted delicious food that was organic, sustainable and healthy—and he delivered. He made Lemon caper chicken, a chickpea tzatziki salad with olives, pesto vegetable medley, homemade granola with yogurt and honey, and charred tomato and kale salad with feta. All served in festive silver platters. On top of the food tasting superb, Jory was a great host and fit in seamlessly with our guests whose questions were answered professionally and in good spirits. Using him again. For sure.
Katheryne helped us in a weekend event and she took great care of all the food and the kitchen. I recommend her!
Discovering FoodPeople was a dream come true for this busy business owner. To me, the thought of planning for and preparing meals is overwhelming and intimidating. And as a single women with no kids, it’s hard to justify spending the time to cook just for myself. When I met Eren and Chef Emre I felt comfortable knowing that they understood me, my lifestyle and my food preferences. They delivered on all of their promises and continually go above and beyond to exceed my expectations. I would highly recommend FoodPeople to any individuals or families who value high quality, wholesome food prepared with great care and attention.
Hired The Chef to cook for an anniversary for me and my wife. He came and perform his job excellent and we had a great time learning how to prepare meals. For our anniversary she wanted to stay home cook dinner with the family and I couldn’t of asked for a better chef to help me. We incorporated my kids and they wanted pizza so pizza is what we did. Can’t wait for our next encounter and opportunity to work together.
I love to entertain and educate!
My team and I will make the delicious food your heart desires. We will come to you and we will prepare anything you ask of us.
I worked with all budgets and menu. I work around all schedules too. I am very generous with my food.
I offer bartending services for private parties and corporate events. I also provide private cooking lessons in French and Italian cooking.
My personal attention to detail.
