Chef Thomas catered a delicious meal including appetizers, main course desserts and even special dishes for the kids, for my husband's 40th birthday. He was even able to customize certain dishes for a vegan and gluten free guest. And every dish was out of this world. My personal favorite was the jerk chicken. So, so good. And the chocolate cake and pineapple upside down cake were absolutely phenomenal. I highly recommend Chef Thomas for any event. By the way, he is super professional and very easy to deal with. Thank you for making my husband's birthday a huge success Chef Thomas!!
via Melissa, or "Chef Melissa" as we call her, exceeded our expectations! We took her from her usual route of healthy food and asked her to run a cooking class so that children with Celiac Disease could make and enjoy cupcakes on the morning of Super Bowl Sunday. She was really flexible and provided what felt and looked like "regular" cupcakes but modified for strict gluten-free compliance and somehow they were a little healthy too! All natural. even organic and dairy-free where possible. The ages of children who attended ranged from 4-12 and she worked really well with everyone! She set up before we (event organizers) arrived and had a friendly helper with her. They were professional but the kids related to them very well. The parents were all pleased and her rate was really reasonable! Our support group doesn't make any money from events like this, parents paid her directly and she was accepting last-minute additions without any worries. I can't think of a single negative - in fact we'd like to work with her again this year! Oh, and she even took the work of finding a location away from us (we're 2 volunteers who run this group for our children and others). Next class, we'll go a little healthier and really take advantage of ALL that via Melissa has to offer our kids! :) Oh, and she's even sending us kid-friendly, healthy and gluten-free recipes for us to share with the families in our group! She really goes above and beyond!
Tara catered an important birthday dinner for my mother-in-law and it was a night we'll never forget! From the very beginning she was flexible with our weird restrictions (gluten free, nut free and pescatarian) and gave us several creative options to choose from. We all raved about every course. The salad was bright and fresh, the appetizer (octopus) was perfectly cooked when so often restaurants overcook it, the main dish was so flavorful and the flourless chocolate cake was sinfully delicious. There were 9 adults and one toddler and everyone left so happy. Tara and Kelley were so sweet throughout the whole afternoon. Talking us through the process, explaining the courses and then left the kitchen spotless. I would highly recommend them for any special dinner (or even just a night you don't feel like cooking!) It was a perfect evening.
Scott responded to my somewhat urgent need for a chef at the very last moment and came through with such a beautiful array of gluten free foods! Zero stress and I was able to enjoy spending time with my guests!
She is great to work with. Open to my likes and dislikes. If we wanted her to try a specific recipe she is willing to try it. All of the meals have been both healthy and delicious. I have intolerances to gluten and peanuts, which hasn't been a problem.
Chef Jerry was great! He was professional while cooking a delicious meal for a group of friends. He adapted the menu gluten free. I would have him cook again!
Delicious food, multiple courses prepared and served, accommodated both gluten-free, and vegetarian. Made for a very special dinner!
Debbie is WONDERFUL and I would highly recommend her to everyone I know. I signed up for a series of 6 cooking classes with her with the goal of forcing myself to try new foods and learning new recipes - I definitely accomplished both! Everything she taught us was health conscious and tasted delicious! I am looking forward to the next set of 6 classes with Debbie!
Evan is AWESOME! My club hired him for a rather large fundraising event on last minute notice. He broke personal plans he had to help us. He truly let us leave EVERYTHING to him and we are so happy we did! He put together the most appealing menu a group could hope for, from appetizers to desserts. Everything was so delicious and especially appealing to the eye as well. Even when we threw in at the very last minute that we had a couple of guests with special dietary needs (gluten free and vegetarian) he was amazing! He used his wonderful talent to make special dishes for them just using the ingredients on hand off the top of his head. We would highly recommend Evan for any culinary event.
Stephanie was extremely friendly, flexible and a pleasure to work with. How the taste and presentation come together leaves you wanting more. I also felt comfortable making a few special requests (I am gluten free) and Stephanie delivered without any qualms. I am happy I found her and cannot wait to order a delicious dessert from her at my next get together.
Craig prepared a 5 course tasting menu, accomodating a complicated mix of food sensitivities and preferences. He worked with us to make the vegetarian, the meat eater and the gluten free diner happy.
Amazing!! I used Robin's for my 8 yr old son's birthday party and couldn't have asked for a better experience. My son has food allergies but a lot of his friends don't so I am always concerned about him feeling left out- especially since most little kids only want cake and junk food on their birthday. Robin managed to make a vegan, gluten free meal that all of the kids enjoyed! I don't even think they realized it was "healthy" food... SCORE!!
Kirstin is an amazing chef! She is so personable & will come up with a fantastic menu for your family or party. Kirstin has catered many events for us and we have always been blown away. Whether it's a special raspberry & mint lemonade that she's made for the kids or a sublime salmon dish- everything she makes is to perfection!!
We love working with Corey. When we want something in particular she never fails to deliver but if we are totally out of inspiration we can trust she will dream up something delicious. She is great at working with dietary restrictions (gluten free, vegan, paleo, etc) and is also a skilled seasonal cook. Corey sources great ingredients, prepares them in wholesome, delicious ways and is always eager to work with her clients changing needs.
Rae worked full time for my family as a personal cook. Because of her long hours, she had a lot of interaction with my family and me, and we came to know her quite well. We appreciate Rae so much because she values nutrition above all else and strives to make each meal tasty, new, and exciting while being healthy at the same time (although we often enjoyed delicious desserts as well!). We are a family of four, with various tastes and dietary needs. Rae was able to take into consideration all of this and tailor the weeks menu around each family member, including special fasts, dairy-free, vegetarian, fat-free, and always low-calorie options. She also cooked for different holiday parties, some of which were religious with specific requirements. Rae worked independently and proved to have good judgment. She was frugal when shopping, buying not only the appropriate amount, but also conscious of markets with the best value for the best products. Rae was always on time and reliable. Her honestly allowed me to be comfortable having her in my home while were away, home with my children, and using my credit card as necessary. Aside from eating Raes meals, my favorite part of Rae being here was that I never had to make a decision regarding food she did everything from picking the menu to serving it. Rae is extremely passionate about her work and it shows every day. She is a true pleasure to have around.
Chef J was such a pleasure to work with. She always listens to my needs and executes with perfection. I have Celiac Disease and finding a chef who can re-create my favorite meals Gluten-free is not easy, but she is awesome at what she does. I’ve already hired her twice and looking to hire her again very soon. If you are looking for a chef that truly cares she is the one. -G. Brown, New York
Kim has been employed as a personal chef with me since 2012. I have strict dietary restriction gluten-free and dairy-free. With these restrictions, Kim has managed to create a filling menu and the food tastes absolutely delicious month after month. With Kims cooking, I do not miss the gluten and dairy in my diet. Kim is consistently punctual and always confirms prior to the appointment. She arrives prepared and start and ends on time. All the cooking is done in my kitchen and Kim does an excellent job with clean up after the job is done. Overall, I would highly recommend Kim as personal chef to anyone with or without dietary restrictions. She definitely listens to what your needs are and creates an amazing way to fulfill on it.
My wife and I hired Ian for our 25th Wedding Anniversary Party held at a beach house rental about four hours from our home. There were 30+ guests for meals over the course of a weekend, Ian cooking with one assistant on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Ian strikes the perfect balance between giving you what you want and giving you what you didn't know that you wanted. It's the fine line between listening carefully and creative input when you want each of those that make him special. His attitude is superb and should be a prime factor for anyone who considers him as a chef/caterer. Add to that his work ethic, and you have someone that you can trust with responsible decisions about menus as well as budget considerations. But his food, you ask? His food is OUT OF THIS WORLD amazing. I consider myself a good home cook. I don't bow down to anybody. I take pride in my palette. He's for real. Ian's ability to combine flavors and put together a meal is extraordinary. He was able to take guidelines and run with them in the most imaginative way while providing adjustments for individuals who are vegetarians or gluten-free. I cannot speak highly enough for Ian's abilities as a chef and his qualities as a strong, thoughtful, and compassionate man. If you have any further questions, I have more details upon request, and you can contact me directly: firstname.lastname@example.org
We had an amazing meal with Johnny!!! He is unbelievably accommodating and creative. My wife if gluten free and loves lobster, while I love steak - so he did lobster 4 ways and cooked a ribeye for me. Each of the lobster dishes was amazing with flavors that were classic but also each with its own creative twist. We were always surprised and delighted. We couldn't recommend Johnny more.
