We recently enjoyed an exquisite in-home dinner prepared by Chef Colin Shea. Chef Shea arrived promptly and began preparing a meal for six. Our couples group chose a meal based on menu choices Chef Shea had given us in advance. From the fresh tomato basil bisque to the creme brûlée everything was amazing. Each course was beautifully presented and delicious. We had plenty of time between courses to savor each bite. Chef Shea spent a moment prior to each course sharing his culinary techniques. We all agreed that having personal chef Colin Shea cook a meal for us at home was an enjoyable way to spend a winter evening with friends. We highly recommend Chef Shea. Great food, great wine, great dinner with friends!
We had the pleasure of hiring Cameron Daly for our engagement party back on March 21, 2015. From the first email to execution Cameron and his wife Christine were amazing!! They both take such a personal interest in ensuring our party was an event our guest and ourselves never forgot with their amazing culinary items! We chose Cameron due to his willingness to sit down and let us know more about him and his wife Christine and always answered every email or picked up the phone right away with all our questions. We had 50 friends and family at a private home and they executed the food and service like we were in a 5 star restaurant. They came with everything you would need in order to ensure your home was never disturbed and when they did need the kitchen they left it cleaner then it was before they got there. We even utilized the service of their bartender Nigel who happens to also be there son and he was a fan amongst all our guests! We would highly suggest Cameron Daly for any party and will be hoping to use him again down the road for other parties we will have. Please feel free to contact us for references and we will be glad to recommend Cameron!!
We couldn't have asked for a better party--the bride to be was overwhelmed with the food and effort that Kim, our chef, provided. From start to finish Kim offered excellent menu suggestions, and planned to whole party for us. The appetizers, entree and desserts were par excellence!! The food presentation was beautiful. She even typed up the menu, which we placed at each setting. The appetizers were placed on platters with fresh flowers that matched the color of the bridal party. Our party of 24 had more than enough food, with each bite better the the last. We started off with a shrimp on a homemade wonton with green goddess dressing, Homemade hummus and guac with chips/crackers, then some meatball sliders ( the bride's fav!) and a beautiful crudite. The main course offered both chicken and steak Indonesian style with delicious sides. Kim even made a delicious carrot cake sundae for the bride to be, knowing that carrot cake was her favorite. The whole even was perfect and elegant from start to finish....we couldn't have asked for anything more. Chef Kim is wonderful!!! Thanks Kim for a fantastic night!!!
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.
Nina is a very fine server. She arrived on time, was cordial to both my clients and to me. She anticipated things without me having to ask and she followed through. Both my clients and I are very pleased the way the dinner went. Thank you, Chef Colin Shea.

Amelia is an extraordinarily talented chef and teacher. Her workshops are engaging, practical and fun. I’m still trying to figure out if there’s anything she cannot make delicious... She’s like a magical kitchen witch, who can take any ingredients and transform them into decadent nourishment for the body and soul.
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.
Chef Rosa Ross is absolutely terrific. Chef will use her vast experience and for sure you will benefit. I’m a professional food stylist and certainly Rosa taught me many things that have contributed to my success. If you are looking for a real professional chef with chef instructor experience than you can’t go wrong. Chef Rosa Ross is also a published cookbook author.
I have attended many wine dinners that Chef Tuinei has done. They were all excellent. Looking forward to the next one.
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.
