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.

Hiring a personal trainer was not an easy step for me to take, because what I had seen of personal trainers and at big gyms was a big turn-off. What set him apart initially was that he offered a ‘no gimmicks, no pressure’ approach, was a (or soon to be a) registered dietician, offered additional services as a personal chef, and could do workouts either at his location or mine. When I started, I was in a hectic transition period with my job and so my schedule was unpredictable. Mike completely understood, and worked with me to schedule workout sessions in a very no-pressure way. During workouts, he pays attention (to safety, to how I am feeling and handling it…), and makes adjustments as needed based on the individual person. He started me on a level I could handle and we are building from there. The workouts are interesting and varied, which makes them fun (imagine that!), and I appreciate his positive reinforcement and encouragement, as it pushes me in a positive way to do the best I can. Based on my experience so far, I can say that Mike cares very much about the progress of his students and goes the extra mile to help them reach their goals. In the short amount of time I have been working with him, I have lost 17 pounds (more to go) and I am becoming stronger. As a result am gaining confidence and setting new goals which I am excited to reach! I would definitely recommend Mike and Start Fresh Fitness.

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

Bob exceeds expectations! He was kind enough to work with me closely to come up a with a menu that satisfied our vegan and very carnivorous friends for a group of 10 people. He is a great chef and a very fun person that you definitely want to have dinner with!

Modern Edge provided everything we needed and much more! Karen was extremely helpful on the business and planning end of things, and working tirelessly with us through some unexpected snags in approval and payment. You couldn't ask for a more friendly or helpful contact. Michael is an amazing chef - the food was TOP notch - and he spent time helping and serving our guests and thoroughly cleaned and organized everything the event. Best catering experience I have ever had. Thank you!

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!

Busy Cooking Mama is fantastic! I was in a situation where I live in Denver and my sister lives in Fort Collins. My sister went through a heartbreaking tragedy and I wanted to make her and her husband dinners so they didn't have to worry about cooking. That was difficult to do being that I live in Denver and was in the middle of a kitchen remodel. I found busy cooking mama on this site, got in touch with her and within a couple of days my sister and her husband had delicious home-cooked meals delivered to their house. A few days later I got a message from my sister saying that the food was amazing! I just wish Busy Cooking Mama lived closer to me because I would be getting meals for myself :-) Thank you so much! Your service was a blessing!

Chef Allen and his team catered our wedding this summer at the Farmette in Lyons. After an epic search, we were lucky and relieved to find such an honest, hardworking chef and team hell bent on providing not only exceptional food but also great service and value. The wedding industry is ripe with folks trying to take advantage of you - we saw other venders prices routinely double when we mentioned "wedding". Allen and team were on our side, flexible to our needs and looking out for our interests - which allowed us to relax and enjoy not only our special day, but also much of the process leading up to it. We not only recommend them, but urge to work with them if your seeking high quality food, service and value. The wedding industry would be better off if half of the venders were as good and as caring as Smoke Shack.

Blue Mountain Kitchen catered my daughter's wedding on July 31, 2015 in Lafayette, CO. They were so helpful creating a menu that fit the style of the event. The food was superb! They are extremely professional and reliable. I have also ordered food that I picked up and took home for other family events. The food is always so delicious! I highly recommend them! You won't have to worry about a thing!

About

I treat each client as a friend and try to get to know them to accommodate all of their dietary needs, since food is a very personal experience.

About

I am a Colorado based personal/private chef whose training started at Florida Culinary Institute in West Palm Beach, FL. I have three years of experience in cooking both high-end and home-style cuisine on private yachts. I am now land based and would love to bring the enthusiasm and energy I had working on boats to your home. I can provide locally sourced food prepared and ready for you when you get home from a long day at work (it only needs to be heated), plated meals, and service for dinner parties, or hors d'oeuvres for your cocktail parties. My specialties include Mediterranean, middle eastern, and Asian cuisine, but I have experience with most cuisines, including dietary restrictions, such as vegan/vegetarian, gluten free, etc.

My name is Celeste Sutton and I was born and raised in Broomfield, Colorado. I have always loved being in the kitchen, watching my grandmothers and my mom create amazing meals. My love for homemade comfort food came from them. As I grew I always enjoyed cooking colorful and flavorful food but never thought of doing it for a living. I use the freshest ingredients that I can find and pride myself on educating people so they feel confident and comfortable in the kitchen!
