What a night! A very special 70th birthday surprise for my husband, who had hoped to stay close to home, have a low key evening with little fanfare. What could be more perfect than celebrating in the comfort of your own home with Chef Dustin Brandt at the helm! Joined by our best friends, Dustin prepared a 5 course meal of all my husband's favorites including a chicken liver mousse w/ shallots and capers appetizer, scrumptious escargot in herb garlic butter sauce, crab stuffed mushrooms, mushroom soup with creme fraiche, spinach arugula salad with raspberries and roasted pistachios, Beef Wellington with toast potatoes and asparagus, and roasted apple creeps for dessert! The four of us friends are trying to come up with occasions to hire him again. Bravo! Superb! Extraordinaire! Find a celebration to hire Dustin as your personal chef...it was truly one if the best gifts I have ever given my husband and so well received. Thank you Dustin!
Nancy is life changing. I am a type A, very particular (okay, demanding) lawyer who seeks out the best in everything. I have lived in NYC, DC, and Chicago tried personal chefs for weekly meal prep in every city. I also have tried all the high end meal delivery (fresh diet, LA-based sunfresh, diet to go, etc). I can say with 100 percent certainty that Nancy's meals are healthier and more tasty than anything I have tried. If I can't lose a few pounds and get healthy with her delicious food packed beautifully in my fridge, it is all on me. Because Nancy has made it so easy to eat beatiful and healthy meals every day. She uses intersting flavors, textures, and spices. This is no "chicken breast and brocoli" dinner. I can't thank her enough for her high level of service and better-than-restaurant quality of food. I have struggled for quite awhile to find this great support in my busy life and finally found it. Thank you Nancy.
Chef Bob exceeded our best expectations. He made our gathering a true success & our guests were beyond impressed as were we. Thank you, Chef Bob, we’ll be in touch!
Rhonda and Jake are fabulous. The food they prepared from appetizer all the way to desert was delicious and very high quality. Jake is an amazing chef. They where on time, great service and cleaned up everything when finished. I will for sure call them again for our next event.
Kim couldn't have been a better choice for our wedding caterer. She was so personable, helpful, calming, and efficient, not to mention a fabulous cook! She handled everything from start to finish with the expertise of a five star chef. Everyone raved about our meal, which featured Beef Wellington. She completely took over the kitchen, but was so unobtrusive that you barely knew she was there. I would recommend her over and over for any event.
I hit the jackpot when I found Lenny with Xim catering. He went way above and beyond to accommodate our somewhat complex needs for my Mother's 80th birthday. He was so incredibly gracious, kind, and professional. Xim had some challenges with the venue we had chosen but they really make it work so well despite the none kitchen, tiny space and complex menu. All our guests raved about the food and the extremely friendly service. I give Lenny and Xim 10 stars for service and execution. Thank you very much
Honestly, Connor was much better then expected or anticipated! Not only was he consistent and timely in responding to my emails but was on top of any and all questions I had! Very thorough and specific in terms of trying to figure out exactly what you're looking to gain from the time together. Feels very relaxed and easy going. Never a feeling of being rushed or forced and does a great job at taking the lead while still allowing you to feel like your in control. I wanted to make sure he knew what I wanted as far as, Meal Prep, Food Combination & Planning for the week ahead... What I got was all that and more; an introduction to Seasonings, Proper cooking times, Techniques, and Tools for eliminating waste and increasing efficiency ! He was very straight forward, easy to understand and relatable. Connor makes it unbelievably easy to take simple ingredients combined with a few simple spices and seasonings to bring to life a really delicious, healthy and hearty meal! I would definitely recommend anyone looking for an inexpensive High Quality chef to come share his experience and knowledge! 11/10 on rating of satisfaction!
Jason is an amazing chef. Not only does he create unique and perfectly executed dishes, but he does it with charisma and class. You will not be sorry if you hire Scholz Hospitality for your wedding or event.
I am Jan Dunbar (Janice Romney Dunbar: Mrs. C.W. Dunbar) I've known Tom Letts in various capacities, particularly that of a friend as he has had an interesting career, crossing paths with our lives and with our interests. Tom is a Chef-At-Heart. Tom never heard the term, "Fast Food." without coming up with an alternative that was twice as nutritious, twice as interesting, and twice as much fun. Not many amateur chefs I know would pack up his favorite pot, favorite knives, and detour into organic food stores where his lively imagination could innovate a recipe to fit something fresh and exciting, promising to make it through his kitchen to come out surprising and delicious. At the same time, Tom is a patient innovator who can take something like a mushroom of unknown flavor, doing small maneuvers between sink and stove, coming up with something simmered and slow-savored to just the "different" kind of sauce. Tom is a fearless shopper, buying things that are unusual, sometimes exotic, sometimes experimental and handsome on the plate. and nothing is too much trouble. I've lived next door to Tom from time to time. The sounds and scents of Tom-in-the-kitchen are an experience of joy and excitement. You should try it!
The food Chef Clark prepared and the service he delivered for my recent events exceeded my expectations. My customers loved the food and commented on how pleasant and professional Chef Clark is. I look forward to continuing to have Chef Clark and Clark's Custom Catering "wow" my clients!
Chef Sandoval curated the most magical menu experience, helped us meet our budgetary goals and was a delight to work with. Highly recommended!
Grant cooked a truly gourmet dinner in my home for a special birthday. Everyone was so impressed (even did something special & fun for the kids)! He worked with us on special menu requests & was professional & timely. I hope to use him again & give my highest recommendation to all the "foodies" looking for an in home chef. He is the real deal!
I'm so happy I found Lisa and her crew! I hired her for my daughter's Sweet 16/ Quinceanera and she was sweet, personable, accommodating and helpful. When you see Mama Lisa's Little Italy you automatically think only Italian food, but they totally customized an awesome fajita station, 3 types of meats, chips, tortillas,rice, beans, assortment of salsa and toppings! All pretasted at the convenience of my home. So delicious! Very important when it comes to a family with an appetite for good Mexican cuisine. All my guests were very impressed and complimented me on the food all night. Not to mention Lisa set up a bar with staff for the night that were an absolute delight! Very friendly, organized, and really worked hard to serve and entertain my guests. They even cleaned and packed up all our left overs, it was nice not having to make dinner the next day! It can be overwhelming choosing a caterer who doesn't over price their food and or sacrifice quality, or customer service. Thank you for making our daughter's special day so memorable! Best wishes and hope to use you again for future events!
Orange Crunch did an amazing job on our wedding. They were flexible, helpful, and everything went off without a hitch! Not to mention, the food was delicious. They came to our home for the tasting beforehand too, to make sure everything was just perfect. Thanks Leshner and Sarah!!
Everybody loved the food and the two chefs, it was a great choice!
