What can't I say about Lillian! She was not only friendly, sweet, personable, engaging, funny and definitely a delightful edition to our small birthday party, her food was TOO DIE FOR!! I'm still craving her lamb lollipop and goat cheese puff pastry a day later! The steak was melt in your mouth like butter and the chocolate cake was delicious! She even was thoughtful enough to personalize it for the birthday girl! We all loved her, were extremely grateful we got her and more so wish we could hire her every weekend for her fantastic food and company!! Thank you so much Lillian!

June was very open to any ideas I had for catering my sons birthday party and I loved that she just took the stress right off my shoulders with suggestions that were great. She was so helpful, lots of extra food, on time, and just a lovely person. I loved that she worked in my budget. The food was delicious and all homemade.

I have nothing but great things to say about the service, quality, and overall delivery of Best Mobile Chef. From beginning to end, Shawna was very attentive and professional. As a bride, I can honestly say that planning a wedding is one of the most stressful experiences in your life; however, Shawna did an amazing job at making sure I was not stressed or worried when it came to the catering, bartending, and cake. She made sure that each and every need was met, and she even offered her assistance with cutting our cake even though that was out of her services. We sat down and went over every detail, and Shawna made sure to keep in touch throughout the way to maintain things and to make sure that we were on track with everything. Finally on the day of, the food and setup was more than what was expected. Our family and friends spoke so highly of the food and service. Shawna and her team was absolutely phenomenal! My husband and I would definitely book Shawna and her team again for a large dinner, and even desserts. We are both forever thankful and grateful!

Fantastic meal, way exceeded expectations and was much more affordable than other private chefs we contacted. Would highly recommend to anyone hosting a dinner!! Originally we looked at making a group dinner reservation to dine out in Palm Springs for a birthday party, having Cucina Migrante come to our vacation rental made for a more relaxing and unforgettable dining experience. Francesco and Adisa are true pros!

Christine McMaster is a hidden gem of the culinary and catering world! She was the caterer last year for a wedding I attended and I was most impressed. She completely handled an amazing dinner for 21 people with delectable Indian and Middle Eastern Food; taking care of the shopping, the food preparation, the service and cleaning up of the food and leftovers. I was so impressed that I asked her to cater an Indian Meal for 75 people! Since it was a much larger undertaking, we provided theingredients, but Chris oversaw every aspect of the preparation of a 5 course meal, and remained calm, organized and personable throughout. The food was absolutely delicious. I would absolutely recommend her for any catering needs you might have - you would be lucky to get her!

Awesome experience from start to finish. Almost more than the amazing food, we loved having Joan in our house. We instantly hit it off and our kids loved her as well. Joan and I planned a menu for an informal dinner party for my wife's birthday that consisted of salad, bolognese, and a deconstructed cannoli...all made from scratch in our kitchen. The food was absolutely delicious and her company was delightful. Next time we have a need for a personal chef, we will go straight to Joan!

Daily Chew Catering dished up a bit of heaven on a plate for a holiday party recently and from the first time I contacted Carly until the last bit of food was gone, we were blown away by the entire experience. Daily Chew Catering offers a wide selection of menu options, so there's guaranteed to be something great for every palate, and everything is done well. Daily Chew does food service right, and I'll no doubt be quick to call back and start planning for our next event as soon as the time comes. Thank you for the professionalism, the amazing food, and your passion for great-tasting, incredible quality catering experience!

Chef Marckende was amazing! He came up with an incredibly creative menu (all vegan/vegetarian) with dumplings, potstickers, ramen, and an amazing chocolate, strawberry, blueberry layer cake. He was very responsive in the planning process, even coordinating the on-site setup/visit the night before because we were celebrating a birthday with a group of friends at an AirBnb. Couldn't have imagined a better dining experience for celebrating a birthday with the group of 11. He was very professional, came with all of the necessary supplies, took care of service and clean-up. If you're looking to choose a chef for an event, you're missing out if you don't choose Chef Marckende. He'll create a memorable meal and take care of all the details so you don't have to even think about doing anything else other than enjoying a great meal with great company.

Chef Andrew Selz was a pleasure to work with. His charismatic personality, attention to detail, creativity and flare in the kitchen made for an unforgettable evening. His creations far surpassed our expectations, both in taste and presentation, and the effort he put into making sure the evening was perfect, down to the the linen cloth was exceptional. I would highly recommend Chef Selz to anyone looking to hire a chef to cater. You will not regret your decision!
