We hired Rocco to come cook for our Mother's Day dinner. He did a great job planning the meal and altering it to people's likes and dislikes. He was organized, friendly, and the most wonderful personal chef you could ask for. Our family already decided that the next time we do this, he will be the first person we contact!!!!! He left the kitchen cleaner than it was before and our bellies VERY happy!!!! THANK YOU ROCCO!

I used Flavors of Magick to provide bartender services for a party I hosted in my home. The owner was so easy to work with. And, she went above and beyond what I expected. She helped me put together a list of specialty cocktails and she sent me a grocery list of everything to buy (with quantities and estimated prices). It made everything so easy for me. On the day of the event she showed up on time and did a great job setting up. My guests had a wonderful experience and the drinks were fabulous.

Chef Elizabeth does a fantastic job with working with our busy, young family. She is great with listening to our needs & providing not only healthy options, but wonderful tasting meals! I even had Chef E teach me how to prepare a few of our favorite dishes & she was very patient & knowledgeable.

GREAT SERVICE We got married yesterday and had to post a review immediately because Affordable Chef was so great! Chef Mark was punctual in replying to my questions before the big day, which, as an out-of-town bride, was very reassuring! At the last minute, Chef Mark was unable to attend the reception, but his on-site chef made delicious food, and the staff were phenomenal! There was one staff member in particular who took an interest in my Husband and I. She told us that we were her "celebrities for the day," made sure we ate appetizers before we walked in, escorted us to the buffet first, and was constantly checking on our drinks. She also took an interest in our families, leading many people to tell us how amazing she was! The bartender Chef Mark sent was also lovely, knew her stuff, and made our signature cocktails perfectly! All in all, a great experience and a company we would trust our next big event to!

Karla was an absolute joy to work with. She loves her job and it shows in her work. Karla was flexible, prompt in her replies to questions and her staff was professional and so friendly! The food got rave reviews from my guests - and the delicious leftovers were enjoyed by even more people! Let Karla cater your event. You won't be disappointed.

Thanks to one of my colleagues who introduced Anita to me. She has been a true blessing to my kitchen and culinary skills. Apart from being an expert chef she is an amazing teacher. She has been mentoring me for for about 6 months now and the dishes I make under her guidance have always fetched me rave reviews of the superlative degree. She shares some of her great culinary secrets and techniques with me and follows through very patiently. She is very professional, takes my needs into consideration and devises each class with lots of enthusiasm and fervor. She is always punctual and has a very pleasing demeanor. She taught me to cook some mind blowing dishes in my very own kitchen :) thanks Anita from coming all the way to teach me. You have been a great source of inspiration to me.

I really enjoyed my experience with Panacea Center for Wellness. They are very professional, punctual, responsive and have a great customer service. I really liked the food. It is very delicious and 100% organic. Also, their menu includes a broad variety of recipes - so any person can find something what he/she likes. I am going to order from them again. If you are conscious about your health, I would recommend to try it!

Anna is a delight. She accomodated my desire to create the menu for an elegant dinner party for 8, and made great suggestions to add to it. She's very professional and planned well so that the dinner was served right on time. The flavors were wonderful and the presentation beautiful. What a treat it was to enjoy my own party and have the cleanup done for me. She even handwashed my china and silverware. I'll have her back as soon as I plan another party.

When you don't have the time nor energy to put together a healthy delicious meal, I can do it for you. I love to cook different cuisines, never stick to just one style of cooking. Whatever it is that I prepare, the main purpose is to keep the food hearty and healthy. I do your grocery shopping for you after learning your likes, dislikes, allergies, etc. and stock up your fridge for the weekly menu plan. I am friendly, outgoing, and creative person. My hourly rate changes due to how many in your family I am cooking for. I would like nothing more than to bring great food to your table!
