We wanted our neighborhood bar, the Nob, to provide Thanksgiving dinner for customers spending time together at the bar...our Thanksgiving gift to them. We also wanted the meal to be provided by someone local with a good reputation. We found Maggie! A great meal, great service and someone we will use again and again.

Tom catered a crayfish boil in our home for 20 people. The food was wonderful - and he even cleans up! I've also attended several dinners where he prepared the food. The meals were delicious and imaginative; from perfectly grilled salmon to bison chili. I'd love to have him cater all my dinner parties.

Dustin was professional, flexible, and an excellent chef. We selected Dustin because he has a high focus on the quality of the food. The meal was well thought out and expertly prepared. His team took care of everything, and he accommodated a number of dietary restrictions and requests. It was an outstanding evening!

Sean is an excellent chef and very easy to work with! I met him at a wedding and after just minutes of chatting with him, I hired him to cater 10 different meals for my office staff. His menus were fresh and creative and his food was loved by everyone! Even eating his meals 10 out of 16 days (would have been 16 out of 16 but he was already booked!), my staff never was tired of it or looked for anything different. The menu had such a variety and each type of food was delicious! He was friendly, quick to respond and very easy to work with. I HIGHLY recommend Sean for any type of event you need catered!

Chef Bob exceeded our expectations on our 40th Birthday Couples weekend celebration in Boulder. Prior to our arrival Bob was in contact with us regarding any questions and guided us on our menu selection. Bob even visited our VRBO prior to our visit to scope out the kitchen and cooking tools. To our surprise, the kitchen was smaller down! Now for the food! It completely exceeded our expectations. The lettuce wraps and polenta pizatta appetizers were an excellent, savory start. This was followed by mouth watering main dishes: mango bbq ribs, vietanemse chicken, and tuna with portobella, kale salad and mango slaw. We highly reccommend each as it was all done simply and professionally. For dessert than expected and Bob made the best of it. One would have never known a kitchenette and very limited cooking utensils were available to Bob. We were looking forward to a great, relaxing dining for a reasonable price. Bob was our answer. He came to our house, set up, and checked in as needed with all the guests regarding preferences for setup and the entire meal. His presence was just right and not overbearing. It was much appreciated as it allowed us, friends, to visit with each other and chow Bob made a lemon saffron pie. Yum! We wouldn't have changed a thing. Chef Bob is the real deal. We look forward to returning to the area and enjoying another memorable meal prepared and served by Chef Bob.

I attended both a bridal shower and wedding catered by Knife and Pepper. The displays were beautifully done, the food was delicious, and the service was impeccable. There was a wide variety of food within the themes of each event and all dietary needs were met (gluten free, dairy free, etc.). From the appetizers to the desserts, everything was done with care and detail and the flavors were spot on. I highly recommend Knife and Pepper for any event!

Grant catered my Mother's memorial service at our home August 9th. We wanted a specific menu and he created everything we wanted...even my Mom's Chinese Egg rolls! The food was delicious! Grant and his assistant allowed us all to relax and enjoy family and friends. They were amazing to work with and very considerate of our situation. It was such a treat to have everything professionally taken care of, a clean kichen afterwards and leftovers for the evening. I would use Grant again in a heartbeat!

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!

Chef Kerry came and did a private cooking lesson for 2 of us. He was happy to help with knife skills, which I specifically requested, and came prepared with handouts and meal ideas that would allow us to practice. The food we cooked was great and lasted us a whole week!

Hi Diane, Thanks for the wonderful food for the party. Everything was delicious and many people commented on how good the food was; one friend (who eats out often) said "this is one of the best meals I've had in a long time!" Nice work. Jen

Chef April is absolutely amazing in her craft and in how she interacts with her clients! While with her, my experience included a breakfast meal of homemade french toast with blueberry compote. She answered questions that I had while making this meal and gave me ideas for making these in the future. For someone who loves to cook but needs some work, she was super helpful. Our meal was beyond delicious and by far the best french toast I have ever had. It was fresh, warm. and the flavors were perfectly sweet. She has a great spirit and it shows in her work and communication with you. I believe she has something to offer anyone and you are lucky to have the chance to have her as your Chef!

A delirious delectable deluge of delightful dimensions. Debbie does (home) dining like no one else! She is aware of a wide-range of palettes, cooking styles and menus. She listens carefully for your preferences. Her delivery not only means an exceptional meal is at hand, but likely lively conversation and some chuckles will be your primo piatto!

I have tasted his food on numerous occasions and Chef Paul always adds a special touch that make his entrees stand out from the norm. Whether he is preparing for only a few people, or several hundred (or more), he pays attention to details that make his meals special.

In the past year, Chef Diego has done two catering for 100+ people for us. He always listened to our ideas and used them as a base to create an exceptional menu. Both times Chef Diego kept our budget in mind (which was very important for us) and gave us an amazing meal that blew everyones taste buds. Will definitely call him again!

Molly Schaefer’s attention to individualization for my tastes and needs make this so much better than pre-packed options. She found delicious recipes for my dietary needs! And the smells of cooking in my kitchen make this a real meal “treat”.
