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!

Last night, my husband cleared what should have been a lunch sandwich because the lamb was too delicious to get back to the fridge. The sides of potatoes generous, but totally cleaned up (due to them being my favorite sin). The pie is a great size and very tasty....I will have his half today. One certain treasure is the sauces...which I generally don't do, and it makes Out of this World's cooking very special. The candied nuts also, a highlight I have underused in my own cooking....Out of this World Cooking has inspired me to pay more attention to a "special" effort like that in cooking meals at home. All the beans and onions disappeared during the meal, as for us the portions are generous, but too delicious to leave leftovers.

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.

I believe that eating delicious meals made from fresh ingredients and maintaining an active lifestyle are the keys to good health.

The food is home made, not pre-bought restaurant food. I wouldn't give you anything less that I would feed my family. And my prices are cheaper than any catering venues in my area!
