If we could give Marcel 10 STARS, we would! What an amazing experience from the first phone call until the end of the event he catered for us. Marcel was prompt - efficient - he never missed a beat - super easy to communicate with - cared about what we wanted - he went to every length to do exactly what we wanted. We felt so taken care of. Marcel and his crew were TOP NOTCH! We will never go with anyone else - this man is spectacular and so much fun! Our guests loved interacting with him as well as my family. Oh and the food he prepared?!!!!!! Oh my word - people at the party LOST THEIR MINDS! The food was out of this world! You will not be disappointed if you choose Marcel - you will be the most talked about event all year long! Efficient - went the extra mile - worked with my husband who is extremely picky and particular - wonderful staff - fun - professional - perfect choice!

Carolina was wonderful to work with and plan our event food. She really worked with the budget and then Chef Boris delivered delicious and pleasantly prepared food. It was a great experience working with Gourmet Lovers and the food was perfect.

My husband and I hired Madkins catering for a family weekend in the desert (La Quinta). We requested a bbq for the first night, and an early Easter dinner for the second night. I expected the meals to be good but not great (I haven’t really had an excellent catering experience). However, the meals were OUTSTANDING. Chef Aviarie is truly talented, and our entire family and guests talked about the interesting flavors and quality of the food. I still can’t get over how Chef Aviarie and Frank prepared everything from scratch in our kitchen in just a few hours! We requested a hefty amount of dishes, and they pulled it off without a sweat! The team is incredibly kind, professional and a pleasure to have cooking in our kitchen. They even managed to entertain our 6 year old nephew while they were cooking. I should also note their rates are very reasonable! I can’t say enough good things about our experience. I am happy to serve as a personal reference in case anyone wants my feedback. Madkins Catering can provide my email address. OUTSTANDING JOB! We look forward to hiring you again in LA or in the desert!

For clubhouse catering's first time at handling a major surfer event on the coast of California with 650 meals needed to be provided to contestants they did an unbelievable job under adverse conditions and location without power and infrastructure to support the kind of cuisine that they brought. As it was described to me never has there been food for a surfing contest of this caliber ever. The lasagna is awesome and pulled pork to die for. My patrons were beside themselves saying this is the new bar for beach cuisine being served at a surf contest . I've heard that from many many patrons... these guys know how to cook and they know how to get the job done five stars all the way around ....we will be using them again. And I'm sure the rest of the surfing community will be using them as well for their events ... well done Clubhouse!

My 19 year old son has always been interested in cooking. This year for Christmas, I decided to hire someone to teach him some more advanced cooking skills. Theo is the man!!! He has a great personality, with a "let's get to it" attitude. He was very professional, and the prepared meal was beautiful as well as delicious! My son enjoyed the lesson, and I did too as I listened to their banter. I will be continuing the lessons for my son, until he decides he has accomplished his goal. I would definitely recommend Theo to anyone who wanted to learn some kitchen skills.

Segars culinary did a phenomenal job last night catering a very special dinner. Their attention to detail and ability to combine art and food in one amazing meal was second to none. They far exceeded our expectations and I would - and WILL - have them again to cook again soon. Without a question one of the best meals we have had in memory.

I planned a personal cooking lesson for my boyfriend's birthday, and couldn't have asked for a better experience! Chef Keith took time to get to know exactly what we were looking for, and he was flexible in creating our personalized 3 course menu. He showed up to my house on time, and was prepared with all of the food and cooking tools. He even cleaned up afterwards and left my kitchen spotless. The food was amazing! Chef Keith is very knowledgable about cooking. I would highly recommend hiring Chef Keith! It was absolutely worth it!!

My organization hired David to cater our holiday fundraiser that coincided with the Newport Boat Parade. He created a menu that was appropriate for an audience ranging from children to CEOs and that could be served buffet style. Everyone raved about the food! One guest had several food allergies, David was very conscientious spent 15 minutes explaining how the food was prepared and what she could consume - certainly above and beyond! We ordered food for 75 people and he brought enough for 85, which was greatly appreciated. I look forward to working with David again, I will certainly recommend him to family and friends!

On Feb 1, 2018, Chef Amy performed her private chef services at my girlfriend’s birthday party with our teenage daughter. Amy curated a delicious 5-course menu based on our favorites. She prepared the food in new fun beautiful ways. Amy was funny, approachable and professional. She brought all needed cooking and serving ware. She cooked and cleaned up everything. Amy explained and presented every course of the meal and prepared unique never seen before drinks that were a huge hit! The food portions in each course were just right and completely filling. Amy clearly loves cooking and enjoys interacting with clients. Amy was sooo good by evenings end that we were singing to our throw-back music playlist and hugging her goodbye with anticipation of a future event. I definitely plan to hire Amy many more times in the future. HIGHLY RECOMMEND- 5 STARS

We just hosted a birthday party for 27 people and hired Greg. He was very very quick with his response and kept me updated about everything. He was very patience in answering my thousands of questions ! We worked together to create a very nice menu. He was very generous and offered me lots of choices. The food he prepared was delicious, fresh, and looked beautiful. The presentation was superb!! He was on time and left my kitchen shinning clean. I would highly recommend him for any event. He really does go above and beyond.

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!

Chef Izzy cooked for my family last year. Her food was so healthy and delicious. She was always hunting for the best organic and freshest ingredients. One of my favorite dishes was the chicken with cilantro sauce and the Zucchini noodles with pesto. I highly recommend her and her meals!
