We hired Rocco to come cook for our Mother's Day dinner. He did a great job planning the meal and altering it to people's likes and dislikes. He was organized, friendly, and the most wonderful personal chef you could ask for. Our family already decided that the next time we do this, he will be the first person we contact!!!!! He left the kitchen cleaner than it was before and our bellies VERY happy!!!! THANK YOU ROCCO!

Great food and great experience. The two chefs working our holiday party couldn't have been kinder or more patient. Everyone loved the food, and the boss told me after they left that she would like to bring them back again next year. Thank you for a lovely experience!

Food was amazing!! I booked Flavors of Magick for a surprise Father’s Day brunch for my husband and in-laws that were in town. The soul food cuisine of shrimp and grits, greens and waffles were a huge hit! My in laws are from the south and are *very* particulate about soul food...they gave the dishes two thumbs up! Would definitely book again and highly recommend.

Karla was an absolute joy to work with. She loves her job and it shows in her work. Karla was flexible, prompt in her replies to questions and her staff was professional and so friendly! The food got rave reviews from my guests - and the delicious leftovers were enjoyed by even more people! Let Karla cater your event. You won't be disappointed.

GREAT SERVICE We got married yesterday and had to post a review immediately because Affordable Chef was so great! Chef Mark was punctual in replying to my questions before the big day, which, as an out-of-town bride, was very reassuring! At the last minute, Chef Mark was unable to attend the reception, but his on-site chef made delicious food, and the staff were phenomenal! There was one staff member in particular who took an interest in my Husband and I. She told us that we were her "celebrities for the day," made sure we ate appetizers before we walked in, escorted us to the buffet first, and was constantly checking on our drinks. She also took an interest in our families, leading many people to tell us how amazing she was! The bartender Chef Mark sent was also lovely, knew her stuff, and made our signature cocktails perfectly! All in all, a great experience and a company we would trust our next big event to!

Anna is a delight. She accomodated my desire to create the menu for an elegant dinner party for 8, and made great suggestions to add to it. She's very professional and planned well so that the dinner was served right on time. The flavors were wonderful and the presentation beautiful. What a treat it was to enjoy my own party and have the cleanup done for me. She even handwashed my china and silverware. I'll have her back as soon as I plan another party.
