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!

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 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!

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.

Jeanne provided an anniversary dinner for my husband and I at our home and was very accommodating to our dietary requests. She prepared a delicious 5 course Italian, keto-friendly meal and we were both very satisfied with her service, professionalism and tasteful food. I would highly recommend her services to anyone looking for a personal chef and will definitely request her again in the future.

Amazing surprise dinner for my wife. I wanted to do something special and have never hired a private chef before. Nikki was great! She helped me plan the entire evening. The menu was perfect and she even helped me set the mood by creating the most romantic setting ever. I could never have done this by myself and wife absolutely loved it!

When considering a caterer, you could not hire a more amazing chef than the lovely and talented Rashon Smith. She is truly a culinary genius and her food, an artistic construction of delicious and savory dishes that surpass anything your palate could hope for. My husband and I were blessed to have Mrs. Smith cater our wedding in Malibu and were thoroughly pleased with every aspect of our catering experience. I highly recommend Rashon Smith for any and all of your culinary needs, she is truly a cut above.

    Gregory created a number of specialized dishes for a historic-themed event we were participating in. His olive spread and anti-pasta were incredible! He is very open to trying new things to fit our themes, which we appreciated greatly.
