Jose is very responsive and has great service, along with him being a great chef of course! He traveled to my parents house for us to do a tasting for our wedding and we were blown away. It was amazing. We got so many compliments from our friends and family about how good the food was. With that being said I have a couple nitpicky complaints for constructive feedback: The plates and silverware were not what we had originally discussed at the tasting. They were supposed to be the nice plastic that looked real and we got clear which looked cheesy to us. It could have had to do with the fact that we did the tasting about a year in advance and things could have been forgotten or overlooked but the change was never communicated to us. Also, my husband requested to have a spicy BBQ sauce during our tasting and the BBQ sauce was on the side at that time. We discussed having spicy and mild options. I was very excited for the pulled pork at the wedding but it had spicy BBQ sauce all over it! I thought it was going to be on the side, like it was during the tasting. It was so spicy that I couldn't even eat it. :( One of our aunts was not able to eat any of the meat because it was "too peppery" but that was the only other complaint that we got. Other than that everyone loved it. Everything was great and I would still highly recommend Mr. WorldWide Catering, it just wasn't quite perfect for my event.

Lilian is the best! Our first encounter was a friend's celebration dinner where she was the chef. I was so impressed by everything she did to make the party a great success. The food was amazingly delicious... and I'm very picky. She does it all -- steak, fish, chicken, pork... her soups are wonderful and her vegetarian dishes are sooooo good. And she makes this savory bread pudding which is ah-may-zing! I've used her twice since my friend's dinner party, and my guests have all been so impressed. She's clearly got a passion for what she does. I recommend her to everyone! If I could hire her on as my own personal chef, I would. Go with Busy Bee Cook for Me for your dinner party or special event, and you definitely won't go wrong!

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.

We hired Chef Mumsie to provide a special Birthday treat for our Mom. We ask her to prepare two dinners a week and deliver them for a period of two weeks. The food is spectacular! Chef Mumsie's attention to detail, personal touch and caring nature make for an exquisite dinning experience. She even delivered the first dinner herself. Our Mom got a kick out of seeing her in her tall chef hat. We have decided to extend our contract, as our Mom is enjoying having this treat to look forward to. Her only complaint is that the food is so good, she can't stop eating! I would highly recommend Chef Mumsie for your next event or need for a personal chef.

I hired Rich for a small event at my house yesterday. Before the party, Rich was always answering my phone calls and texts with any question or concerns I had. The day of the party he did an EXCELLENT job bartending and walking around to make sure everyones glasses we full! He even went to the extent to help entertain my 2 year old during dinner time and helped the chef move empty dishes! He was truly amazing and a great price and i will definitely use him again!

I am beyond grateful to Thumbtack for connecting me to Chef Keith Prante and his team at Hautè Productions Events and Catering to cater my mom's 80th birthday celebration. They are absolutely A-MAZING! Chef Prante was one of two chefs who responded to my request via Thumbtack, and I also received a personal referral. Neither of the other caterers offered ANYWHERE NEAR the quality, selections, variety and value that Hautè offered at my price point. We had our tasting today, and it absolutely sealed the deal! Everything was delicious and the presentation was outstanding. I highly recommend Hautè Productions to any potential customer who appreciates excellence, accommodation and genuine customer service.

Chef David did a fantastic job catering my daughter's wedding. He was so easy to work with. He helped us out with ideas to customize a delicious menu that satisfied vegetarians as well as non vegetarians. Food and service were exceptional. I recommend chef David to anyone. He will truly put 110% in making your event memorable.

Chef Ace was amazing! I hired Amanda to cook for my party of 5 friends in Palm Springs for a night. I had never done this type of thing before and was a little nervous, but I felt very comfortable with Amanda immediately. Within 5 minutes of my request she was the very first person to respond. She made it very clear that she was open to cook anything we liked, and we were able to create a menu together. Amanda created a wonderful 4 course meal for us that was made with all fresh ingredients. She was right on time and treated us as if we were at a restaurant. Although we tried to help with clearing dishes, Amanda insisted that we relax and she would take care of everything. The food was out of this world delicious and left us bursting at the seems. Any food left over was wrapped for us and left in our fridge. Not only was the food outstanding, Amanda was warm and professional. I could not not think of one thing I would change about the evening. I wish I lived in California so that I could use Chef Ace's services again. Anyone looking for an amazing personal chef, Chef Ace is the way to go. I didn't want to go through a company that would just send a chef I didn't know. Each time we spoke via text or call, Amanda is the person I got. No computers or secretaries, just Chef Ace. Thank you Chef for an unforgettable evening!

I am a mother of three children and I hired Chris to be our family's private chef. She also was the chef for our occasional dinner parties chef as well as coordinated them for the last two years. We absolutely enjoyed her cooking and loved her easy going nature. Our family will miss Chris profusely as we are moving to Austin.

It was a pleasure working with Diane and her food was quite tasty. She made my husband's birthday celebration joyful and may life so much easier at a very busy time. This was our first experience with a personal chef and we will certainly consider doing it again in the future for another special occasion.
