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!

Jennifer was a consummate professional. She arrived on time each day with a smile and ready to teach 3 wonderfully spirited young girls. She had patience and showed kindness to the girls and taught them how to bake very difficult pastries and a cake that you would find in a professional bake shop or patisserie. We were very pleased and would use Jennifer again.

I've had the pleasure of enjoying these amazing cupcakes and even some other pastries by Justine and all I can say is YUM!!! When a company chooses to go for decoration and creativity over flavor, they've lost my business. Charming Cupcakes have not and will not lose my business!

Kevie is a gifted pastry chef whose modern desserts showcase her unique experience. She prepared a beautiful dessert bar table for a large event of 600+ people that our company was sponsoring. The treats were delicious and nutritious baked using our Sugar 2.0 product which includes soluble fiber and probiotics (www.sugar2pt0.com). Her recipes are incredible, and you will be pleased with her sweet treats for your friends and family. She is a professional and fun to work with too. I highly recommend her and am impressed with her baking techniques and capacity to foresee the outcomes! Thank you so much Kevies Kitchen! Everyone loved your yummy treats, you made our event a huge success!

I highly recommend Chef Renee and the Luscious Bites team for all your catering needs. We recently had our Annual Corporate Sales Meeting and had multiple Sales Reps visiting California for the week. After weeks of planning and setting up a few evening events to entertain our Reps, we found out 5 days before one of the events that the original plan was no longer going to work. In a last-minute mad dash to throw together a themed dinner party we asked around for recommendations and the moment I spoke with Jessica and received the menu I knew I found the right company. Best decision we made was to hire them. Chef Renee and her team made everything so streamlined and simple on our end. We literally picked the food and they handled everything else. From set up to break down to clean up, we did NOTHING!!! Which was a nice change since we usually do EVERYTHING. Not only did they accommodate us with regards to our time sensitive needs, They also were great at helping us choose the best menu to fit our Polynesian theme. Their pricing was more than reasonable esp. for all she and her team did to provide such a great atmosphere with such great food. AND THE FOOD IS GREAT, phenomenal is even a better word to describe the choices for our dinner party. We took all the reps to the Cayman Islands one year for this meeting and can you believe I got more compliments and rave reviews about our Laguna Beach event then I did about being on an ISLAND. It is all attributed to Chef Renee's food and her team's service. All in all, the event went off without a hitch. Thanks so much again to Chef Renee and her team. You will NOT be disappointed and no need to keep searching. Just book them for your event today.... you hit the jackpot!!

We hired Brian to cook for a group of 22 for our friends 30th B'day party. Leading up to the event, communication was fantastic - Brian was responsive, communicative, and flexible with regard to logistics, menu selection, etc. He was happy to accommodate our requests, but able to offer informed, thoughtful recommendations in areas where we deferred to him, which we really appreciated since this was our first time hiring a chef for an event. During the party Brian and his assistant were efficient and competent - everything ran ahead-of-schedule, and the food was fantastic! All our guests have asked for his card to hire him for their special events, and we look forward to having Brian cook for us again!

Ellena is incredible! She offers amazing food and exceptional service. She clearly loves what she does and is passionate about food and clients, offering creativity and customization. Whether looking to feed yourself or your family healthy meals or looking to host a knock-your-socks-off catered gathering - I work with her regularly for both and there is nothing she doesn't wow me with. The best Cuban sandwiches you have ever tasted for a fun Miami night theme, mashed potatoe bar for a midnight comfort food theme at a fancy holiday party - Ellena is creative, kind, and extremely talented. I would highly recommend her.

About

Personal Chef De Cuisine will shop, prepare, cook, establish a "healthy" breakfast, lunch and dinner menu for members of family, following etiquette and health standards. We are not interested in "gigs" or few days' events. We prefer to work on a contractual basis or a long-term commitment. The original interview will focus on the criteria for selecting ingredients based upon the likes, dislikes and related nutritional problems (if any) such as allergies, gluten sensibility, vegan adherence, ethnics, etc. This is a very personalized cooking and dietary program for family members.
