My wife and I live very busy lives with demanding work schedules. When we are not working we love to spend time with our family and entertain. I am a bit of a foodie as is my wife, so when we entertain the meals must be perfect. I am very impressed with Lilian's ability to deliver the highest quality cuisine in a variety of nationalities. She has prepared French, Moroccan, Thai, Asian fusion, Mexican fusion, and Mediterranean to name a few. She has served us at an intimate table of four to catering fundraisers for over 300 people. In addition to the fabulous food, Lilian has a friendly inviting personality and always has a smile on her face. If you hire Lilian as your chef, you will not be disappointing!
We made a special request for Hawaiian style cuisine with some diet restrictions. June was beyond helpful and everything was tasty! My guests thoroughly enjoyed the meal. My favorites were the grilled pineapple, grilled vegetables and the macaroni salad. She made more than enough, we even had leftovers. She was also right on time! This was my first thumbtack experience and I was very pleased!
We have had personal chefs in the past and all were good experiences, but Shawna was a cut above. The experience that she provided was exemplary in every facet. Shawna was personable, prepared, and her food was exquisite. She will be called upon in the future to cater any event we may have. We give her our highest recommendation.
Lavonne did such an awesome job! We required a large number of appetizers for our group and she really came through. What a beautiful and delicious feast she put on for us. All our attendees were pleased with the different dishes she created. Just when we thought the best dish had been created, here came Lavonne with yet another great dish! Several of our attendees have a Gluten Free diet and Lavonne was able to create GF versions of several of appetizers - keeping everyone in the group happy. Thank you for a wonderful evening of great food and hard work! I know we asked for a lot, and you rose to the occasion. I highly recommend Lavonne, she put her heart and soul into our event - it was obvious in the creations she made for us.
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!
Chef Leslie Ann made an AMAZING variety of gorgeously plated scrumptious food for a friend's baby shower. Everyone raved about the food! Chef Leslie Ann was professional, creative, and accommodating. I will definitely ask her to cater my future events!
We hired Chris after tasting her cooking at our friend's dinner party where she was the chef. She cooked dinner for us off & on during the week when our schedules got to be too much. This was during the early years of parenting and making dinner after being at work just didn't fit in my schedule. We loved having her in our home and her food was always so delicious and nurturing! I loved her help it freed up about 8 hours a week for me to spend time with the kids and or relaxing as a family. Dinner time was so enjoyable since I wasn't the one making it or cleaning up. I think she is a fine chef with a very special touch. We went to a Dinner party last summer where she was the cook...her roasted chicken w/ pasta and pesto was divine! Tracy
Five stars! Could not be more pleased about Chef Stevan's cooking lesson given to 16 culinary students at my workplace. He came prepared with recipes for them to take home, many interesting and ususual samples to try, and showed the students how to pickle fresh garlic. YUM! The students were engaged the entire time and are still commenting about how fascinating the ingredients and recipes he presented were. Definitely hire NV Personal Dining if you're looking for a reliable, professional Chef who is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about his craft!
Everything exceeded my expectations. We will definitely be using Chef Adreas Hinojosa again.
My experience with Chef Stephani is one of excellence! She did a magnificent dinner party for me that was far superior to my wildest dreams! She is extremely creative, meticulous in her selection of foods and preparation. Her presentations are beautiful and her food is delicious! Everything is done with love! She excels at creating an atmosphere of anticipation.....of what is coming next! Thank you Chef Stephani Susan D.
Amazing healthy chef...my family loves Mici's meals, and she has really helped me remove gluten from my diet! Super creative and fun, Mici is a gem!
You can truly taste the love Chef John puts in his food. The smoked brisket he served was one of the best things I have ever had in my life! He also makes all his sauces with peppers he grows in his garden! You can't get fresher than that.
Just finished devouring another amazing meal from chef Steven. I've been using the service for a few weeks now and it's seriously changed my life! I used to spent a ton of money going out to eat 3 times a day, eating food that was more expensive and not as good. I've tried other services but most of their food is comparable to a cafeteria lunch. Some barely edible. But chef Steven's food tastes like it was prepared at a 5 star restaurant. For the quality and convenience, he can't be beat!
Chef Pierre was a complete “success” in my mom’s words. He prepared a wonderful dinner for my Mom and Dad and their friends on their 52nd anniversary. He was on time and they said everything was delicious. Chef Pierre worked with me on the East Coast while he was on the West Coast. He answered all of my questions and was patient with me. Thank you, Marckende!
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!
