Marcel created a delicious menu based on my preferences to serve breakfast, lunch and dinner to a hungry group of 15. Incredibly professional and friendly, he has a real passion for cooking. He got a round of applause from our group when he left and then we even brought him back last minute to cook an additional meal for us one day because enjoyed it so much. The food is fresh, healthy and flavorful. We will definitely work with him again.

My husband and I hired Madkins catering for a family weekend in the desert (La Quinta). We requested a bbq for the first night, and an early Easter dinner for the second night. I expected the meals to be good but not great (I haven’t really had an excellent catering experience). However, the meals were OUTSTANDING. Chef Aviarie is truly talented, and our entire family and guests talked about the interesting flavors and quality of the food. I still can’t get over how Chef Aviarie and Frank prepared everything from scratch in our kitchen in just a few hours! We requested a hefty amount of dishes, and they pulled it off without a sweat! The team is incredibly kind, professional and a pleasure to have cooking in our kitchen. They even managed to entertain our 6 year old nephew while they were cooking. I should also note their rates are very reasonable! I can’t say enough good things about our experience. I am happy to serve as a personal reference in case anyone wants my feedback. Madkins Catering can provide my email address. OUTSTANDING JOB! We look forward to hiring you again in LA or in the desert!

Chef Marc was such a wonderful professional. Deliveries were always on time, like clock-work with no problems. The food has absolutely incredible variety and there was never any meals I didn't like. The food was also incredibly healthy and great care was taken in preparation. This has been the best meal prep service I have ever used.

Chef Mark is very experienced and qualified, and creates very special menus with your preferred ingredients and for every occasion, like the Thanksgiving inspired meal he prepared for us and our dinner guests last November. He is also a pleasure to talk to, so, as a customer I had a wonderful experience since the making of all dishes to the actual dinner time!

We attended Diner en Blanc with 2000+ people. Ninety percent of the people in attendance ate a cold meal as you had to provide your own dinner. It was a night to remember having Wild Thyme serve us a 5 course sit down meal, two of which were served hot despite not having a kitchen. We as well as everyone were wondering where the delicious food smell was coming from, only to realize that those courses were being served to us!! Needless to say, we were the envy of many! The meal was not only delicious, but was beautifully presented. We were impressed with the quality and presentation of the food. It was a seamless and professional process. Cannot say enough about Wild Thyme.

My wedding took place on. 09/26/14 in Canyon Country, CA. From the beginning of the planning process, Pam was very helpful and involved in deciding the logistics of the meal and catering services. Pam very kindly helped me in purchasing multiple items for the wedding (plates, utensils, limes, lemons, etc) and charged me at cost. This helped me save time and energy, which I could put elsewhere while planning the wedding. It has only been a few days since the wedding, but every single person that I have spoken to has had only positive comments to say about the food. Thank you, Pam for all of your and your crews hard work!!

Steven came to our home, to serve my husband and me our anniversary dinner. He brought a beautifully printed out menu explaining the courses. He brought his own dishware which was lovely. From the well displayed appetizers to the meal itself ... we were delighted! The food was five star! And dessert was impressive! A very wonderful experience from beginning to end. What a treat to have an impeccably dressed chef walk through the door of our home and create pure deelish!!! Thank you to Steven!!! Michael and Cindy Thee Ashburn, Virginia

I was working out with a trainer, and doing cardio at least 6 times a week; I was barely moving the needle on the scale I stood on each day. My trainer was very helpful in helping me realize it was what I was eating each day and not eating enough of the “right” foods. My trainer had suggested I look at a few meal plans. As I was looking at this options I knew if I got the “standard” meal plan delivery from one of the well-known companies, I would end up throwing half of the food away. I then made a conscious effort to explore and search for other options, and I discovered Carmi. I have been very pleased with my results, and I have been utilizing her personal chef services for almost two years! My original plan was to utilize her for six months, as I prepared to be on a web-series reality show. I dropped the weight I needed and I made a choice to continue with her. I love that we design my meals each week, and we change them according to my palate, and what I need to help keep me healthy. I will tell you all of her meals are scrumptious and addictive! I have regular requests each week, as I must have those dishes! She is very dependable, reachable and always ready to work with you. This is a truly one-on-one personal chef design. Take all of those frozen food meals in your freezer and toss them out; as Carmi’s meals are fresh and organic and just plain yummy!

On Feb 1, 2018, Chef Amy performed her private chef services at my girlfriend’s birthday party with our teenage daughter. Amy curated a delicious 5-course menu based on our favorites. She prepared the food in new fun beautiful ways. Amy was funny, approachable and professional. She brought all needed cooking and serving ware. She cooked and cleaned up everything. Amy explained and presented every course of the meal and prepared unique never seen before drinks that were a huge hit! The food portions in each course were just right and completely filling. Amy clearly loves cooking and enjoys interacting with clients. Amy was sooo good by evenings end that we were singing to our throw-back music playlist and hugging her goodbye with anticipation of a future event. I definitely plan to hire Amy many more times in the future. HIGHLY RECOMMEND- 5 STARS

We had hired 'A Taste of Gourmet' to cater for a 50th birthday party in our backyard. Their job was to provide food and drink service, as well as rental furniture, dishes, glasses, silverware, etc. for about 45 guests. The owner Don provided us with many food options and was very helpful in putting together a customized menu. On the day of the event, Don and his team arrived on time and well prepared for the job. The food was very tasty, and the service was friendly and professional. We did not have to worry about anything. Everyone enjoyed the open bar, and the bartender was flexible to stay a couple of hours longer than planned. Our guests were impressed and the party turned out to be a great success. We would definitely hire 'A Taste of Gourmet' again.

From the moment Lindsay contacted me with a quote, I was excited to have her cook for a very special birthday celebration. She was thorough, thoughtful, and she easily switched a few things up when I explained that one of our guests had some dietary restrictions. She asked to bring a server to help move the evening along, and I was happy she had the help (and Yvette was an absolute doll). On the day of the party, she was prompt, came incredibly prepared, and not only was course after course unbelievably delicious, but served in and on beautiful dishes (she provided). She and her server were personable, helpful, and by the time we were done eating the beautiful 4 course meal, the entire kitchen was spotless, and she was ready to head out. I will absolutely ask Lindsay to cook for us again, and hope it's not too long before I do so. I cannot recommend her more highly. Book her before some celebrity snatches her up as their personal!!

We have used Chef Mikey for both meal prep and catering. He is truly a gem. The meals he has prepped are flavorful, good variety and perfectly portioned. The last party Chef Mikey catered for us, he made jerk chicken wings that people couldn’t stop talking about. I’m craving them right now! I would highly recommend him for meal prep, private dinner parties or catering!

I am so grateful for Jamie’s cooking in my home for the last two years. It has been a godsend! Jamie has brought much more ease into our lives, given that cooking from scratch is extremely time consuming. I love having healthy home cooked meals for my family. But I don’t have the energy myself to do this. Jamie is punctual, has a positive and cheerful demeanor, and is accommodating to my schedule if I need to make changes. Jamie is very open to our personal preferences and suggestions when making the meals, and is an easy going person, there’s never any stress in the kitchen. Also, Jamie is always game to try a new, sometimes very time consuming or creative/unusual recipe for us. My deepest thanks for Jamie and her love of cooking and all the ways she helps our family to save our time for things we’d rather be doing and to stay healthy and well fed!
