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!

Since i have been attending cooking classes by Chef Stef, i have learned quite a bit. He is both professional and personable while listening to our questions before he gives us a reply. His patience and understanding nature is so appreciated. The presentations that he does for us is thorough and clear as we make the various recipes.

We are just in the planning process for our cooking lesson so I can't speak to the cooking yet, but Joe has been great to be in communication with! Joe's been so flexible with menu, time frame, etc and very pleasant on the phone...can't wait for the lesson!

We hired Chef Gerry for an evening of a cooking lesson and eating. He set up stations with recipes that we were to follow. He helped us make pasta - a real treat! Chef Gerry was knowledgeable, informative, and the recipes were easy to follow but were challenging. It was a delicious dinner and a perfect evening thanks to our very capable Chef!

Jake is incredible!!! He catered at our house for an engagement party we hosted and it couldn't have been more beautiful and amazing! All of the guests commented on the food and how great it was and looked! I also had him come over to cook for some girlfriends who were in town and the food was absolutely exquisite! It was so nice to just sit back and feel like we were in a restaurant in our very own home! Highly recommended Jake for any event or occasion you may have where you want the best in food and presentation!!

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.
