Chef Josie created the entire menu based on our very general guidelines and worked with our budget as well. Everyone raved about the food, and there was plenty of it so that our guests were able to take home leftovers as well :) Would definitely recommend Chef Josie!

Supreme lives up to his name he is certainly "Supreme" He has Supreme food, Supreme service, Supreme Personality, and Supreme Passion for what he does. He cares about his client. He delivers on time, his food is light and delicious. You feel the intention in every bite. I highly recommend not only booking Supreme for your personal meal prep but a small or large dinner party, company lunch, family outing, or if you are looking to drop some lbs. Supreme will help come up with a healthy meal plan catered to your dietary needs. Obviously his food is VEGAN but he can couple that with gluten free too! You will not be disappointed. In fact he is not only an amazing chef, but a wonderful beautiful human being. You will be inspired!.Enjoy!

We hired Melissa to cook for us for ongoing restrictive diet-friendly meals. We had three criteria and passed these with flying colours. 1. She is incredibly organized from menu planning to day of cooking to final delivery and storage of food. This is so critical for ongoing bulk meal preparation. 2. She has such a calm, friendly, and sociable demeanor. For someone to be coming to your home on a regular basis, we've learned that personalities meshing are so important. 3. And the above are the least of the compliments. Her food is amazing! As NY foodies, my husband and I are very particular about our food. Melissa has made no salt/no oil/no carb/no sugar taste better and brighter than any 5 star NY restaurant. We look forward to continuing with Melissa as our chef.
