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 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!

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!

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.

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.

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

We had a wonderful experience with Three Sons as our caterers for our daughters Christening party. Michael was so accommodating in such a short amount of time. The food arrived on time, was very good, and there was plenty of it. We will definitely use Three Sons again for our catering needs.

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!

You will NOT be disappointed. Thank you again Matthew.

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!

Mr. Kimball was our home chef for about nine months and outstanding in this position. He was very professional, prompt, and a pleasure to work with. But most importantly, his food was wonderful. He takes feedback very well and worked hard to meet our dietary needs. We often say how much we miss him cooking for us. He left our employment after graduating and moving out of the area or we will employ him still.
