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.

Chef Alexis made catering a meal in LA from MI a breeze!! Her communication is excellent and her food is even better. The lunches were a HUGE hit with our clients and really helped make my company stand out! We highly recommend So Divine Catering and are already working with them for our next round of luncheons!

Wow & Amazing are two words that your guest will say if you hire Zachary. His food is YES that GOOD. He goes above and beyond to make his clients happy and we were over the moon happy with the food we had. Also a bonus the kitchen was clean to start and I think Zachary left it cleaner then it was when he started. He brings everything all you need to do is enjoy the amazing food he prepares for you. Perfectly seasoned, perfectly prepared made our party just perfect. Thank you Zachary.

Going with Darrell as my personal chef has been a gamechanger. Everything starts with what you put in your body and since hiring him to prepare meals for me, I've been eating healthy consistently, looking better and feeling better and more energized overall. I love the variety of his menus as well as his use of healthy ingredients and meticulous choice of produce and meats. Whenever I'm washing the dishes afterwards, there's never anything congealed or greasy. The meals are paired together in an expert fashion. I've been recommending Darrell to all my friends and would give more than 5 stars if possible. Best decision I've made!

We had such a fabulous time at Chef David Gussin's pop up dinner. There was the perfect mix of beautiful ambience, great music, friendly people, and of course the incredible four course meal, which was acommpanied with Chef David's signature complimentary craft cocktails. Cannot wait to attend his next pop up dinner!!

Francesca was in charge for my Birthday Dinner (September 2015) and it was the most fantastic experience. She arrived way early and prepare our 5 courses meal from scratch which added the pleasure of watching her making all these beautiful and delicious preparations from her native Sardinia (we were 7). She was incredibly professional and kind and left our kitchen impeccable. I absolutely recommend her and can't wait for the next opportunity to have her come and cook for us

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
