Chef Michel put together a wonderful buffet meal for my mother's 80th birthday party. The food was excellent, the service was professional and Chef Michel was a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend him for any catered event you are planning.

Chef Plum cooked an amazing dinner on-site for 15 friends in Southampton. He arrived on time, brought everything we needed and even improvised the menu based on my last minute suggestions. The food was delicious and incorporated all the local fall flavors. To top it off, Chef Plum and his team even cleaned the kitchen and packaged up the leftovers. He was very accommodative with my budget as well and offered more for less than some of the other chefs in the area. All in all, this was the perfect way to prepare a casual meal for a big group of friends.

Chef Gerry was excellent! He came to the home we rented and prepared an excellent meal for our group. We agreed to a menu ahead of time, and all the dishes were very good. Professional, timely and fairly priced. Highly recommend!

Scott prides himself on perfection and pleasing his clients. I have been fortunate enough to experience a variety of dishes he's prepared. His knowledge of food preparation and ability to combine flavors and textures makes the food he prepares ultimately delicious and beautiful to look at. I look forward to enjoying Scott's cooking again soon!

Chef Dan offered assistance in planning the meal, arrived on time, brought everything he needed, prepared and served everything hot, it was delicious, and cleaned up, with the cost as discussed. I would recommend him and plan to use him again.

I have a 3 yo and was expecting twins when I first met Paty, and she saved my life! I was huge and heavy during the summer of 2017 and everything was so difficult to me. Not just making the planning and cooking but also going to the market was a big challenge, especially when I had to take my toddler with me. That was when I found Paty. O-M-G! She would discuss with me our meal plan, go to the market, come to my house, cook, clean up, pack all the food combining the main dishes with its sides, and write down all the instructions on how to defrost/warm it up. One day she made juice for my son and even a cake just because she felt like doing it. She is a very talented cook, a very nice lady, excellent with kids, and very clean and reliable. If you are in a diet, she can also adapt her menu to what you are allowed to eat. She is awesome! The price is more than fair. I aways felt like I should be paying her more because it truly made a difference for a stress free experience with a toddler, 2 newborns and a c-section recovery. Thank you so much, Paty. I could never say enough good things about you. ❤️ ***she also cooked for my son’s bday party and it was delicious!

Rosemarie has now prepared a number of meals for us, and we are looking forward to many great meals! It's like having a top notch restaurant meal at home. For a family meal the costs are comparable... and it makes for a great social gathering as we enjoy watching the meal being prepared, but also enjoy not having to spend a few hours (and many years of training!) that would be required to make such an awesome meal. Rosemarie also cleans up after the meal. We feel totally comfortable with Rosemarie in our home. Rosemarie is a great option for a quiet family meal, or for a small gathering. Having the meal prepared on the premises hands down beats the cafeteria feel of having a meal catered by someone you don't know and won't remember what you like next time. Favorites so far: Asparagus Soup (best we ever tasted!) Papaya chicken. (very special) Parmesan crusted cauliflower... Dark chocolate birthday cake. (so good, we had some more for breakfast the next morning!)

Working with Jessica on an individual level has been transformative and has made long lasting improvements on all levels of my health. She is beyond knowledgable in the process of growing food, sourcing the best products, and preparing nutritious meals with the utmost love to optimally provide nourishment. Just being around Jessica elevates my mood and inspires me to be more mindful of my relationship with my food.

Emily is an amazing chef! We get dinners from her weekly - sometimes prepared re-heatable meals, sometimes she comes to our home and cooks. Everything has been amazing, and our lives have improved so much since we started having her cook for us regularly.

Karla took care of us in planning our menu within our budget for a large birthday party that we were planning. Both Jamie and Karla were present the day of and prepared some of the most delicious food I think I've ever had in my life. Jamie is also wildly knowledgable and willing to share a wealth of culinary information with you if you just ask. Had a great time and can't wait to hire them back again.

Kiyo had prepared several healthy meals for me after I had just had my twins. It was a huge help to just enjoy prepared meals instead of trying to find the time to cook for myself. Many months later she helped my family again by preparing puréed baby foods for my twins which they loved. She really listened to my needs and even filled special requests.

Yes, people! You absolutely CAN have your cake and eat it too! It's almost unfair that I'm writing this review while still under the influence of Dawn's cupcakes. For so long, being gluten and dairy free meant that food kept me separate from others, even my own family. But Dawn's baked goods are so amazing that now I have to hide them to get any for myself! From divine cupcakes to stunning decorated cakes, everything Dawn produces is of the highest quality and positively scrumptious.

Michael has helped me in many ways. First of all I need help with my brother. Didn't have enough time to get food ready for my brother to eat. Plus shopping and take care of a family. Michael would go shopping and buy the best ingredients to make the best dishes. That my brother enjoyed. Fruit salad, pasta salad, chicken salad. Pasta dishes, home made soups, beef stew. Also Michael would make home made bread, pies, cookies, and cakes. He would even try new recipes out. Which my brother loved very much. Michael has gone above and beyond to help make my brother days better for him. My brother looks forward to Michael's visit. Michael make food on a regular basis every week. His quality of his work is excellent and outstanding. Always on time with my brothers meals. The job was done in New Britain Connecticut. I would refer Michael to anyone of my family and friends. Excellent and Outstanding.

    I have had the fortune for having meals prepared by The Shoreline Chef several times. I can attest to his friendliness, efficiency, and the food was absolutely delicious. His presentation is beautiful, and the wines he suggested the hosts serve was perfect! When you have Larry do your next dinner party, make sure you ask him to serve his Hot Eggplant Salad on the antipasto bar- it is my favorite! Yum! But regardless of what you choose to be served, rest assured that the food, presentation, and interaction with guests will be top-notch. Chef Larry is the best!

    About

    I provide healthy meals using organic ingredients unless customer is cost-conscious. I am a self-taught chef and have been cooking for over 30 years. I believe in making nutritious meals using plenty of fresh vegetables, fresh herbs and spices combined with a variety of lean proteins and whole grain carbs such as whole wheat pasta or brown basmati rice. I can prepare gluten-free, low-fat, low-sugar meals or meet ant dietary restrictions. I believe that eating delicious meals made from fresh ingredients and maintaining an active lifestyle are the keys to good health.

    About

    I have been trying to get started into this industry for a while. I love to cook and have grown up cooking. I love trying new recipes as well as following simple, old standards. I am willing to cook to your dietary needs and health needs as well. I will cook as many or as little meals that you require, and they will be delivered to you ready to be stored and reheated.
