Whether you are having a small get together for a few or a large gathering, be rest assured that your event will be amazing! Chef Michel is extremely professional, respectful, and friendly! He catered 2 events for our family and we were very pleased with both. The first was a party of nearly 100 people celebrating our son’s college graduation and daughter’s high school graduation. Our second event was a last minute post Thanksgiving weekend family get together for 12-15 people. Everything from the planning, to taste testing, and delivery was on point. Aside from the food being beyond mouth watering delicious, he coordinated with outside vendors to provide everything we needed to make the graduation event beautiful. He also provided on site chefs and wait staff, all of which were professional and attentive to details. They were flexible in their assigned roles and remained past the scheduled time to attend to our guests and clean up. Our home was left as clean as it was when they arrived! Chef Michel prides himself on delivering the best quality and freshest foods possible. Other than a few items that required pre-prep (like marinating / slow cooking...definitely try the roast pork and roast chicken) everything was prepared (cut, fried, cooked, assembled etc) on site. This truly makes a difference when you’re serving items like empanadas or tostones with avocado and shrimp (both highly recommended). Chef Michel is very creative. Whether you choose something from his printed menus, have other items in mind, or even have a special recipe that you want him to prepare...HE CAN DO IT! An important point to make about his catering style is that he is so proud of his creations that he wants everyone to be able to taste everything that he prepares. If you choose an appetizer and you have 100 people, you are not going to get 1 or 2 pieces per person or be charged by the piece, like most caterers. He will make sure you have more than enough for everyone. The same applies to your main course. We had leftovers for ourselves, even after our guests took food home. With all of this said, I truly feel that his prices are fair and reasonable! I could write more and would be more than happy to speak to anyone who has any questions, but I’ll end with...make sure you try his homemade ice creams (our favorites were coconut and pineapple), flan, and especially the sangria!
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.
Mitch is great! He is an awesome trainer and an excellent chef. After my first lesson I have signed up for sessions 4 times a week and but as good as he can possibly handle too cook. Mitchell is honest, respectable and motivating. He will certainly motivates you to reach your goals, highly recommend!
Chef Kylene delivered. We ordered food for 8 for dinner party - it was easy to reheat, her instructions very clear. The food was marvelous, many compliments from my guests. Plenty of food as well. Highly recommend Chef Kylene. Dont cook, enjoy your guests!
Chef Paty is a phenomenal chef and professional, her knowledge about food allergies is more than I expected. Having a family with multiples types of allergies I have always struggle to be creative in my kitchen but now I don't have to worry anymore Paty does all the work, from building the menu, grocery shopping high end products, cooking, packing, labeling and storage the food. She is very organized and clean and i can't say enough about much she contributed to our family to have a better life with healthy and nutritious meals everyday. I highly recommend chef Paty.
Chef Rosemarie was great. We had multiple conversations prior to her coming to our house to ensure that everything was planned to perfection. Chef Rosemarie has an extensive menu to choose from including appetizers, entrees and desserts. There were so many choices! Our family really enjoyed the experience and I would certainly recommend her to anyone looking for a nice relaxing meal! Thank you again Chef!!
We hired Dexter to cook a nice breakfast/brunch for my parents in law. He was very professional, his food got rave reviews and they loved the experience! Highly recommended. Thank you, Dexter!!
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.
Chef Rosa Ross is absolutely terrific. Chef will use her vast experience and for sure you will benefit. I’m a professional food stylist and certainly Rosa taught me many things that have contributed to my success.

Working with Lesley Moore is one of the best experiences I have had. She is a terrific chef, her food is delicious and her baked goods in particular have become a family and holiday favorite. Whether it is for two people or a party for 40 she can and has handled it. Lesley is very good at sensing what a person wants and likes and finding just the right thing to make. She is very good at dealing with people with food sensitivities as well.
