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.

They catered my daughters Cinderella themed sweet 16 birthday. The food was delicious and served and presented as though you were eating in a high end restaurant. The servers were an added touch, they were professional in appearance and gave impeccable service. My guests raved about how wonderful the food was. I am vegetarian and gluten free and they prepared a special meal for me which I greatly appreciated. The cake was so beautiful... Exactly like the picture we had provided Carolina. I can't say enough good things about this company, but I do know I will use them again! They came in with their team and prepared and served out of my kitchen and left it spotless. Wow is all I can say... Thank you Carolina, Boris and Gustavo for all you did to make this night memorable. ~Shara~

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!

Chef Marc was such a wonderful professional. Deliveries were always on time, like clock-work with no problems. The food has absolutely incredible variety and there was never any meals I didn't like. The food was also incredibly healthy and great care was taken in preparation. This has been the best meal prep service I have ever used.

We attended Diner en Blanc with 2000+ people. Ninety percent of the people in attendance ate a cold meal as you had to provide your own dinner. It was a night to remember having Wild Thyme serve us a 5 course sit down meal, two of which were served hot despite not having a kitchen. We as well as everyone were wondering where the delicious food smell was coming from, only to realize that those courses were being served to us!! Needless to say, we were the envy of many! The meal was not only delicious, but was beautifully presented. We were impressed with the quality and presentation of the food. It was a seamless and professional process. Cannot say enough about Wild Thyme.

Chef Mark is very experienced and qualified, and creates very special menus with your preferred ingredients and for every occasion, like the Thanksgiving inspired meal he prepared for us and our dinner guests last November. He is also a pleasure to talk to, so, as a customer I had a wonderful experience since the making of all dishes to the actual dinner time!

Tonya was great in the planning process. She was responsive and really helpful in menu planning. The food was a hit! The only hiccup was on the day of. Due to forgetting one of the courses at home and traffic on the freeways, our meal wasn't set up until 30 minutes after the agreed upon time. While these things happen, it did affect our overall experience.

Steven catered a flawless dinner this past Memorial Day for my brother’s bachelor party – it was truly a highlight of the weekend! From the beginning, I noticed Steven’s response time was not only incredibly fast, but also extremely receptive to our dietary preferences and general desires for the evening. After carefully designing the perfect menu, Steven meticulously sources his fresh, organic ingredients from local farmer’s markets; Admittedly I am annoyingly choosy when it comes to sourcing foods, and can safely say few restaurants match the quality that Steven brings to the table. Steven was happy to accommodate our group with an indoor/outdoor service so that the guests could take advantage of the property’s pool and firepit as well as the views from the main dining area. The total service must have spanned 3 hours, first bites to dessert, but the time really flies when you’re able to thoroughly enjoy the company of your guests and avoid the distractions and chaos of a typical LA restaurant. To top it all off, Steven’s staff left the kitchen spotless, and even prepared individual “meal-prep” boxes with the leftovers for all of our guests. Steven and his crew really treat you like royalty. Aside from humoring some of the group’s silly behavior and taking some phenomenal group pictures at sunset, you would hardly know the staff is there. I seriously recommend inquiring about Steven’s services for those who can appreciate a meal cooked with passion, need to make a special event memorable, or just want to have a care-free dining experience in the comforts and privacy of their own home.

We hired Danesh for a party of 14. She put together a superb event. First, Daneen is a gem of a human being. She is wonderful to work with and makes everything easy. Second, she is an outstanding chef. The meal she prepared for my guests, including hors d'Oeuvres, mains, and desserts, was most delicious. The pairings were great, the tastes both subtle and bold. Third, Daneen has a great eye for making the plate look cookbook perfect. She is wonderful, and I cannot wait for the chance to hire her again.

I was working out with a trainer, and doing cardio at least 6 times a week; I was barely moving the needle on the scale I stood on each day. My trainer was very helpful in helping me realize it was what I was eating each day and not eating enough of the “right” foods. My trainer had suggested I look at a few meal plans. As I was looking at this options I knew if I got the “standard” meal plan delivery from one of the well-known companies, I would end up throwing half of the food away. I then made a conscious effort to explore and search for other options, and I discovered Carmi. I have been very pleased with my results, and I have been utilizing her personal chef services for almost two years! My original plan was to utilize her for six months, as I prepared to be on a web-series reality show. I dropped the weight I needed and I made a choice to continue with her. I love that we design my meals each week, and we change them according to my palate, and what I need to help keep me healthy. I will tell you all of her meals are scrumptious and addictive! I have regular requests each week, as I must have those dishes! She is very dependable, reachable and always ready to work with you. This is a truly one-on-one personal chef design. Take all of those frozen food meals in your freezer and toss them out; as Carmi’s meals are fresh and organic and just plain yummy!

We have used Chef Mikey for both meal prep and catering. He is truly a gem. The meals he has prepped are flavorful, good variety and perfectly portioned. The last party Chef Mikey catered for us, he made jerk chicken wings that people couldn’t stop talking about. I’m craving them right now! I would highly recommend him for meal prep, private dinner parties or catering!

I am so grateful for Jamie’s cooking in my home for the last two years. It has been a godsend! Jamie has brought much more ease into our lives, given that cooking from scratch is extremely time consuming. I love having healthy home cooked meals for my family. But I don’t have the energy myself to do this. Jamie is punctual, has a positive and cheerful demeanor, and is accommodating to my schedule if I need to make changes. Jamie is very open to our personal preferences and suggestions when making the meals, and is an easy going person, there’s never any stress in the kitchen. Also, Jamie is always game to try a new, sometimes very time consuming or creative/unusual recipe for us. My deepest thanks for Jamie and her love of cooking and all the ways she helps our family to save our time for things we’d rather be doing and to stay healthy and well fed!

Wow & Amazing are two words that your guest will say if you hire Zachary. His food is YES that GOOD. He goes above and beyond to make his clients happy and we were over the moon happy with the food we had. Also a bonus the kitchen was clean to start and I think Zachary left it cleaner then it was when he started. He brings everything all you need to do is enjoy the amazing food he prepares for you. Perfectly seasoned, perfectly prepared made our party just perfect. Thank you Zachary.
