If I could give Jamell and his team a MILLION stars I would. I am BEYOND thankful that I found Jamell. We hired him to cater our wedding of about 80 people in my parents backyard. He brought along three team members to help him. I hired Jamell back in November of last year for our November wedding this year. I didn't have much planned for the wedding at the time I hired him, but I knew I needed to find an amazing caterer. When we first hopped on the phone Jamell was so helpful in preparing a menu and also offered to help find tables and chairs for our guest that I knew I had to say yes. But the thing that truly sold me was that he agreed to make a bread pudding as our dessert even though it was not on his original menu. We decided to do a taste test prior to the wedding to try four menu options. We tried the Steak's Oscar, Salmon, Spinach and Mozzarella Stuffed Chicken Breast and the Sea Bass. We knew we could only pick 3 for the wedding but honestly it was so difficult because all 4 dishes were absolutely delicious. We basically inhaled the food, it was that good. Fast forward to our wedding, Jamell followed through with renting the tables and chairs, the glassware, tablecloths etc. They were the ones to set the tables and they even moved our ceremony chairs to the dinner tables, even though they were in the middle of cooking a 4 course meal for 80 people! He was set up in my parents small kitchen, which isn't that big I might add, and everything was prepped/chopped once they got there so we knew everything was as fresh as possible. This team worked SO DANG HARD to make sure that it was the best dinner ever. People usually say that the bride and groom never eat at their wedding, but Jamell and team's cooking is so good that I made sure to eat it! By dessert, I was walking around too much that I had missed the serving of bread pudding, but I just went inside and they made me a bowl even though they were already working on cleanup. Throughout the wedding people were telling us how great the food was. One of our friends, who is a very picky steak eater (he frequents all the nice steakhouses) said it was one of the best steaks he had ever had. Another favorite was the bacon wrapped dates that were passed around as appetizers, they were so good that my husband grabbed all of the extra and handed them out on the bus to the bar after dinner! Jamell is truly a GREAT chef, but a great person. He is passionate about making a great meal and making sure that his clients truly enjoy their experience. I will be cheering him and his business on from now on. I've already asked my husband if we can hire him every year for our anniversary dinner!!

Kilian where to begin? This entire journey has been an amazing one. From the moment we first spoke on the phone, to the moment we did the tasting, you and your family treated us like family. That’s what made your wedding so much more meaningful to us. It wasn’t that we’re just servicing a client’s wedding, it was more like we were creating an unforgettable day for our family. We will forever be intwined because of the special bond we have. It was truly a PLEASURE for us to experience your special day with you. This truly was one of our best and memorable events EVER and we will always be grateful for the opportunity you gave us. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect group of people to service. I truly wish nothing but success, happiness, and all great things that marriage life will bring to you. We will always be at your beck and call whenever you need us. You’ve got a Chef for life with me and I’m super excited about the future events we will have together.

Jamell was absolutely amazing. I have had the pleasure of eating meals made by a number of great private chefs in the past, but the experience that Jamell created for my friends and I was by far the best I’ve ever had. He cooked steak and seafood for my group of 10 and the quality was nothing short of incredible. Everything was cooked to perfection, prepared in a timely manner, and Jamell himself was super friendly and punctual. I have already saved and passed along his info to several of my friends in SoCal and the Midwest who will be hiring him in the future. If you’re deciding between Jamell or the field, don’t even think. Reach out to Jamell before he gets booked up!!

Details: Special occasion (birthday, anniversary, etc.) • 6 - 10 guests • Dinner • Premium (high end ingredients) • American - casual • Mexican / Latin American • Meal delivered • Only once • At the pro’s location • My home, venue, etc.

Best Homemade Fried Chicken and Cornbread i’ve ever had! Ribs were cooked to perfection with a classic bbq sauce and a spicy Hawaiian glaze, mac n cheese was melt in your mouth good. Jamell was an amazing cook for me and my 6 friends, and an even better person attentive and helpful to every ste along the way. Do yourself a favor and hire this man!

I could not recommend Meals in Motion enough, if you're in need of a private chef/caterer - look no further!!! From the moment I spoke with Jamell over the phone for a free consultation, we just clicked! I had already spoken with a few other caterers but once I spoke with Jamell, I knew I had my guy. He helped create an entire menu for my husband's 40th birthday based on my husband's tastes and preferences, down to every last detail and let me tell you, the food was DELICIOUS!!!!! My guests couldn't stop talking about it! He has a very extensive menu you can choose from or will create something entirely new, based on what you request. Jamell will work with whatever budget or needs you have and he is super communicative. He was able to answer my million questions and was so kind and accommodating. His entire team is amazing! They brought everything they would need to cook and left my kitchen cleaner than when they found it! They were punctual, thorough, professional, a.d also brought a fun vibe to our party as well. It's been 2 weeks and my guests are still complimenting me on their services. I couldn't be happier, thank you!!!!

Details: Special occasion (birthday, anniversary, etc.) • 11 - 20 guests • Cocktail hour / hors d'oeuvres • Dinner • Premium (high end ingredients) • Italian • Vegetarian or vegan • Meal prepared onsite • Only once • My home, venue, etc.
