This was our first time having Personal Chef… Kevin was responsive and informative the entire process… he sent me a sample menu and I did not even change a thing! Angel, his sous chef, Showed up and prepared our meal. He was so personable and hard working. The meal Exceeded everyone’s expectations! Better than any fine dining restaurant I’ve been too! The sous vide filet mignon was unbelievable! Our appetizers were amazing as were the mashed potatoes and the salad with some sort of vanilla dressing and sponge cake croutons! I mean come on… I may not be able to eat salad again with regular croutons🤦‍♀️ This may have been our first use of a personal chef but it most certainly will not be our last!

Kevin is a fantastic chef and customized an incredible meal for our wedding. Kevin was a pleasure to work with and his food was delicious and cooked to perfection. His team was spot on and took great care of our guests. I recommend Heritage to anyone looking for a truly special dining experience.

We reserved Heritage Catering for a private dinner for 9 women on the last evening of a bachelorette party. The chefs were very kind and polite. They prepared a beautiful 6 course meal that everyone enjoyed. I would recommend them to anyone!

What a great experience. Chef Kevin and staff are total pro's. We hosted a small 30th birthday for 12 adults, 4 kids. Chef Kevin prepared a brilliant menu to suit all of our tastes. We started with BouchePasilla-Rock Shrimp TacosCrisped Wonton, Lime Cabbage, Sambal Avocado, Pork PopsBacon Wrapped-Maple Glazed Pork Belly, Medjool Dates, Serrano Chile, Tamarind GlazeChile Seared AhiSweet & Sticky Rice, Wasabi Aioli, Pickled Mango. A beautiful Soy Reduction accompanied by Fresh Rosemary & Sea Salt Focaccia, Salad blackberry & Goat Cheese Heart of Romaine & Candied Walnut, Poundcake Crouton, Vanilla Bean Vinaigrette, Salted Honeycomb. Intermezzo of homemade Granny Smith Apple sorbet Entrée Herb Rubbed Sous Vide Short Rib, Fresh Pappardelle, Spinach-Basil, Tomato, Fennel, Mushroom, Cabernet Reduction and finally Dessert consisting of Individual Bittersweet Chocolate Tarts, Chantilly Cream, Fresh Raspberry, Chocolate Crunch. He also prepared a special menu for the kids. We were treated to one of the most professional servers I've encountered. We were also provided a bartender allowing us to simply enjoy. And enjoy we did. Every one in attendance is still raving about the top notch quality of the food and preparation. When Chef was done my kitchen was cleaner than when he started. I highly recommend Chef Kevin Manolovitz for any size event.

I recently hired Heritage Catering for a private dinner for my Mom’s special birthday and Chef Kevin’s dinner was a huge success. His attention to detail and excellent skills in the kitchen made for an extremely special evening. The menu, from appetizers to dessert, was delicious and everyone loved it. He came in took over every detail in the kitchen and left it spotless at the end of the evening. I highly recommend Heritage Catering!
