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 Cameron and Christine provided an outstanding evening of delicious food and service. Things couldn't have gone more smoothly. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend or use them again.
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!
Anne did an outstanding job of putting together "An Evening in Italia" for my husband's 50th birthday party! Everyone raved about the food and wine pairings. Anne was so pleasant and professional from our first communication to the drop off on the day of the event. She is a pleasure to work with an a very talented chef! I will gladly recommend her to friends and family looking for catering services in the future.
We had an amazing experience! Chef's creations were delicious. He was on time and professional. We are already thinking about our next event with Chef!
Nate and his sous chef cooked a delicious 4 course meal for me and five of my friends for a bachelorette party. A salad of fresh, organic greens with pickled shallots, tomatoes and a homemade vinaigrette, a stuffed chicken appetizer, a delicious salmon with quinoa, wilted greens and an avocado cream aioli. I highly recommend Haven foods!
What a great job by Joe and his catering team at Angelo's Market & catering. The food was out of this world and the presentation was as if I was on a Iron Chef episode. It could not have gone any better and I definitely am going to be using Joe again. Thanks again. Robert S.
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!!
Claudine is a very creative chef. She customizes her menu for the needs of her clients including good likes/dislikes, food allergies and preferences as well as budget. Her food quality is high and never wavers. Claudine and staff are always professional and punctual. You can't go wrong using Magic Spoon for any culinary event.
This is to let others know what a wonderful experience my friends, family , and I had with Pea Soup Catering. The meal was great and everything that was promised was kept. The chef's friendly and professional manner put us all at ease. We look forward to having Pea Soup cater another dinner party in the near future.
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.
Amelia is an extraordinarily talented chef and teacher. Her workshops are engaging, practical and fun. I’m still trying to figure out if there’s anything she cannot make delicious... She’s like a magical kitchen witch, who can take any ingredients and transform them into decadent nourishment for the body and soul.

Anepexperience catered my daughters’ graduation luau and made it a truly exquisite experience. The Hawaiian themed foods and appetizers were phenomenal. The presentation was so aesthetically pleasing that our guests were in awe. Chef Oneil and staff were very professional, knowledgeable, curteous and an absolute pleasure to deal with. I look forward to working with Anepexperience on every event I host in the future. They did such an amazing job. I couldn't have hired a better company. My girls are still thankful for how well the event turned out. I couldn't have done it without the help of Anexperience. Highly recommended.
I ordered two dozen gluten-free cupcakes for my son's 9th birthday party. Dawn was professional, friendly, and helpful during the ordering process. She decorated the cupcakes in the theme of the party, and delivered them to my home precisely when she said she would arrive. The cupcakes were not only beautiful, but absolutely delicious! I felt great to be able to offer treats for all of the children in attendance. It felt even better knowing they were baked with natural ingredients and love. I am so glad that I found her; I was able to enjoy the party without my usual worries and stress around preparing the cake! I completely recommend Dawn and her baking expertise!
Outstanding food. Vitalizing service.
I've used Joseph's services for many private dinners and events over the years. Joseph goes above and beyond to make everything extra special.

The Valley Bowl is a locally-owned personal chef service offering delicious meals made from local and organic ingredients. We all know the importance of gathering around a table for a nourishing, home-cooked meal. Weve all come to understand that the best food is local, organic food cultivated in ways that are good for our bodies and the earth. And we all know how a delicious meal can erase a hectic day at work or a rocky day at school. But the truth is that many of us simply do not have the time, energy, or resources to scour farmers markets for fresh, organic produce or find a local farm that raises all-natural meats and poultry. Most of us do not have the time to cure our own meats, craft delicious cheeses, or make batches of fresh baked breads and cookies. Most of us do not have the desire or the skill to create dishes that are wholesome and unforgettably delicious! Fortunately, the Valley Bowl will do it for you. Without having to drive from the farm to the co-op to the specialty store, you and your family will enjoy amazing meals that are created especially for you. The Valley Bowl uses almost exclusively organic, always fresh produce, naturally raised meats and dairy products from local vendors, including Simple Gifts Farm of Amherst and the River Valley Market in Northampton. We will use these fresh, local ingredients to prepare thoughtful and scrumptious dishes in your kitchen and then pop them in your fridge or freezer so that theyre ready when you are. No pots and pans to scrub, no messy kitchen to clean, no more fast food or bad take-out and best of all, no more spending every night slaving in the kitchen when you could be relaxing around the table with family and friends. All you have to do is set the table, turn on the music, and uncork a bottle of wine.
