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 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.

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!

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!)

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.

I love Edibolic Kitchen! With a new baby and working full time, Edibolic Kitchen allows my husband and I to eat healthy and fresh meals. It couldn't be easier, being able to order online and having the meals delivered. Also, the specials every week are delicious!

From visiting my home to plan the menu and her meal to offering great suggestions for combinations for service Linda was the ultimate professional. We had and indoor/outdoor dining dinner with an impecabale flow that allowed great timing for cocktails and conversation. The food was delicious and despite living in an area where there are NO gourmet stores available Linda traveled to find everything we planned for the menu and it was delicious! The kitchen was left spotless and in perfect order. My guests were totally impressed and my only regret is that she has moved and I cannot call her for another party. Your regret would be to pass up a great opportunity to avail yourself of her experience.

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.

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 purΓ©ed baby foods for my twins which they loved. She really listened to my needs and even filled special requests.

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.

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!

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.
