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!
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!
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 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!!
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.
we had a large party that we had to find catering for last minute as the other person we had hired had bailed on us at the last second. abudanza eased our frustrations with the last person with there friendly attitude, punctuality and there ability to work with us in creating our menu. we were looking for a place that could do both children's and adult dishes for about 150 people, Abudanza express did just that! we had delicious burgers, hotdogs, and grinders for the kids and some of the best wings, pasta, and meat dishes i have ever tasted for the Adults! overall some of the best catering i have ever recieved from this website!
It's very rare to find a cooking teacher as patient, as smart, and as fun as Rosa Ross. We held a Peking Duck class at our home and enjoyed the experience immensely. Rosa took the time to explain both what to do and the underlying principles of why we were doing it -- something rare among teachers today. Our class had people of varied levels and we all were able to learn and participate. From basic knife skills to crafting the perfect dumpling to cleaning and curing the duck to some amazing cooking techniques and shortcuts, Rosa was there to help us along the way. And much laughter and delicious food ensued.
Having Sharon come show me how to prepare healthy food was the best thing I've ever done for myself! The food was/is amazing and she opened up a whole new world of vegetarian cooking. I also love how she shared tips on how to save time in the kitchen too!
Ramin is the consummate professional and has a breadth of knowledge and culinary expertise that's second to none! Her writing is both thorough and in-depth as well as balanced with recommendations and perspective.
Nick was supportive, kind and friendly. We had fun while I learned. He allowed me to participate as well as learn from his example.
