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!
We hired Gourmet Lovers to cater lunch at our daughter college graduation on a Yacht. Carolina and Boris arrived early dress in their professional chef coats The Buffet set in a lavished 5 star style Everything from the mouthwatering appetizer to the main lunch had great presentation, set in high-quality culinary service Each bite tasted amazing. We had a varieties of perfectly executed dessert making it the Gourmet Lovers treats During these events, our guests complement Gourmet Lovers, their culinary creations were outstanding We highly recommend Carolina & Boris Your menu is traditional and modern with unique a twist. We will use them again!!! Thank you!!!
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 Sierra Madre Catering for my husband's 40th birthday party held at my home. The set up process was so easy, they were so accommodating with the menu I wanted (even though it included fried foods and philly cheese steak sandwiches which are hard to make on-site). The moment they got to my house, Tonya and her chefs were so professional, speedy, on top of it all! They made my night so much easier and fun and I finally got to enjoy my own party for once! They left my house very neat like my kitchen was never used! They picked up after my guests throughout the night. My favorites were inside-out Philly cheese steak, pulled pork sliders, mac & cheese, potstickers and garlic fries. Thank you and looking forward to seeing you again!
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!
Michelle from One HOT Dish Catering was hired as a 'one time' personal chef at my home. I requested that Michelle provide me and my guest with a fine dining experience with five star restaurant service. She didn't disappoint. Michelle transformed of portion of my home into an elegant dining corner and prepared a full course meal with the culinary expertise reminiscent of Flemings. If you weren't in awe of the table setting and china flatware then you were marveled by her attentive service and the exquisite manner in which explained each dish. We felt like royalty. We can't wait to do it 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.
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.
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.
I am an events coordinator for State Farm. I was given a 48 hour suspense for catering a lunch for 19 executives. Divine Decadence was highly responsive to our venue requirements and our dietary needs with many culinary choices including halal, vegan and gluten free selections provided over the course of a week. Divine Decadence allowed me to focus on other aspects of planning this symposium.
Divoon Dining was able to produce a delicious Mac and Cheese for a simple dinner and then a five course gourmet feast at another time, all with smooth and unobtrusive preparation and good humor, which contributed to the whole excellent dining experience. We look forward to doing it again.
Sharon is the best chef! I’m into health and delicious food and she prepares food like no one else. She is super creative and uses the best and healthiest ingredients and can make anything!! The presentation is also exceptional! This woman has many talents and is a joy to be around!
Excellent. Jory is a great Chef, very interested in pleasing customer and educating at the same time. Very knowledgeable about the culinary arts. I recommend him without hesitation.
We have been fortunate to have experienced Chef Courtney's cuisine on many occasions, both small and large groups. Always delicious, she never disappoints. Besides being an excellent cook, she is extremely creative which is what we think makes her so special. Will be booking her for our annual holiday party.
We hired Unique Luxury Catering to prepare a family dinner for 8 for my wife's birthday on our patio at Pelican Hill.Chef Brad prepared a fabulous meal topped off by a scratch made carrot cake that was divine.The reduction sauce with vanilla bean added was incredible to plate everything in. This was a great meal,for a great celebration in a great setting. Unique will deliver a great experience for whatever need your occasion requires.Thanks Steve for providing a great experience !
We could not be more pleased with the catering services of Chef Molly and her entire staff. You worked with us to stay in budget, worked on providing a quality inclusive menu including the extra tables and heaters needed, provided quality service to our guests, set up the event quickly and efficiently, and you were cheerful all the while. Our guests all complimented the food and cake, the ambiance of the party and the way you met our requests with a smile and an urgency to make adjustments needed as the party progressed. In the future we will call on you to cater additional events for our family and well be happy to recommend you to all our friends as well.

I am an executive chef at the Hilton Checkers in downtown LA. I am very health-conscious when it comes to cooking for myself and my family. I always look for ways to make healthy choices but taste great! I'm just looking for a little extra cash on the side once or twice a week to prepare meals for a single person or a small family. I may also be available for private parties.
