I liked everything about Marylyn and her team of professionals-- chef and waitstaff included. No detail was left out of the planning, and the food was excellent. I highly recommend this company!

Over the years, Rich has catered many events for me. From a chefs birthday party for 13 year old girls to a fully catered holiday dinner party. Every detail was perfection and the food was amazing!

I dont ususlly do this but hey, i feel compelled to share my experiece. So, it was 2 days before Valentine's day and I had no clue as to what to do for my wife. So I decided to hire a personal chef. Nate was very accommodating and very easy to deal with. We spoke via text message and came up with a menu that I knew my wife and kids would be comfortable with. Nate and his assistant showed up at the time they said they would and got to work right away. Everything was EXCELLENT!!! I will definitely be calling Nate again for future events. I also made sure I got some business cards to share the experience with my friends and family. Thank you guys for your professionalism. See you again soon

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.

We utilized Sunflower catering for a baptism reception in our home. Laura, the chef/owner, came to my home to view the layout and we went over a menu that worked for our guests. The night before the event, Laura had an accident and wasn't able to manage the event herself. Still, ever the professional, she had us covered with her team of employees. They even came earlier than planned, so everything would go off without a hitch. Overall, the food was good. I'm a foodie and very particular about how food is executed and presented and while I know this would have been Laura's domain, her replacement did not execute with that same level of detail. That said, the guests were very pleased with the food and the service was amazing. The pepper steak and eggplant rollatini were delicious. I would love the opportunity to work with Laura again with her manning the helm, since I'm sure the items that fell flat, would have been stellar with her finishing touch. Overall, they get a 5 out of 5 on service (the kitchen was spotless when they finished) and a 4 on food.

Wow!! I’m so blown away. I contacted chef Gordon a day before my mother-in-laws birthday. He came thru BIG TIME for us. From lite bites- that were SO delicious. To soups, salads, eggplant parm, delicious lobsters etc- we became so full that he offered to come back another time and serve the truffle steak and pasta!! Fantastic chef and wonderful person to have in your home. Family was all impressed. He even brought this huge chocolate chocolate cake for Bubby’s birthday. It was a night to remember, thanks to chef Gordon!

I took a cooking class with Chef Stef. Despite having little talent, I was able to make a delicious pecan pie with his help. His classes are fun and offer assistance to all levels and abilities. I look forward to my next class with Stef.

We were so happy to have chosen Chef Anne to cater our Mom's 90th Birthday Party. From my first conversation with her to follow up email she was helpful professional and provided first rate service. Chef Anne made recommendations as well as guided me thru selecting Glueten Free etc type dietary concerns. I felt like Ive known her for years as she is so easy to work with, now I have a friend in the catering business. We had many positive comments how delicious everything was and I would recommend her and will be happy to call her again.

Let my start by saying we have used Gina and her staff on many occasions at our home on the East End as well as in Manhattan. I can guarantee you that the service and quality is outstanding. I have recommended her to many of our friends and family. From planning the event to making sure it ran smoothly the day of, her organization and professionalism was top notch. Her bartenders, servers, chefs are one of a kind. I highly recommend using her!!! Kathy S.

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!)

Mike was awesome. We had a four person interactive cooking lesson in the city and Mike made it tremendously fun. Mike put together a seven course menu that was absolutely delicious. Mike and his wife were awesome chefs and teachers. They made us have an outstanding evening. I look forward to having Mike teach us more in the future.

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.

I will create your "dream" food, and I'll make sure it's actually "healthy" too! I have prepared food for guests as a professor's assistant, and no one has said anything but, "Where did you learn how to do this?" I tell them that I was born that way.

About

My name is Daniel Geraghty, chef and owner of Geraghty's Catering. I am a full-service caterer and personal chef. I am a graduate of The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York. Our customer service and from-scratch cooking, separates us from our competitors. We use organic, all-natural foods, and farmer's markets as much as possible. Because we cook from scratch, we are able to customize menus for catering events as well as personal chef clients. Many of our personal chef clients have the need for specific diets that are confusing for the home cook to create. That is where we shine. I create beautiful, tasty, and healthy meals for diabetes, fibromyalgia, celiac, some forms of cancer, and for clients going through lengthy cleanses.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
