Chris catered a dinner party at my apartment and everything was top notch. He arrived promptly, had enough time to get organized before the guests arrived, and looked very professional. The presentation of the food was as delicious as it tasted. My friend helped organize the menu and every course was more delicious than the next. I look forward to having him caterer more frequently, as well as teach cooking classes. Chris' professionalism and attentiveness was incredible. Thank you again for a wonderful evening!
We hired Erika to conduct an interactive cooking class for our daughters 16th birthday. Erika was great with the girls and they all had an amazing time - all while learning to cook and about nutrition. Erika created a menu that was teenage friendly so the girls would really enjoy the food and experience.
I have hired Chef Jackie Newgent to cater a party of mine in the past; everything she made was so fresh and delicious! All dishes were beautifully presented. I finally had time to take a private cooking class from her and was equally impressed. I now know the right way to hold a chef's knife, slice scallions on a bias and "cream" garlic. Cooking with Chef Jackie is a fun experience! I highly recommend both her personal chef work AND her private cooking lessons!
Outstanding hands on demonstration and lesson for my 11 year old daughters and friends. Not only did they learn to cook the meal they enjoyed, they learned proper knife skills, cutting a chicken, importance of fresh ingredients vs. store bought, sauce prep and reduction technique, homemade salad dressing, and presentation of the meal. We all enjoyed Chef's simple educational approach as well as his lively sense of humor and calm command in the kitchen! Absolutely look forward to cooking with him again as well as using his catering expertise for at home celebrations.
Do you want to know the definition of Excellence? Hire Luisa c/o De Cicco's Event Planning! I have never worked with a more professional, friendly company. Luisa has a way of catering to her client's and making them feel like they're at the top of her priority list. If you need her, drop her an E-mail and she IMMEDIATELY gets back to you. Need a personal Chef to teach you how to cook? Luisa can connect you with top of the line quality professional's that KNOW what they're doing in the kitchen. I'm currently taking lesson's from her Chef and I went from being a novice who's food was either bland, burnt and completely un-edible, to a person who can now chop, dice and make a meal so good, my family calls me asking me to cook for them again. Luisa and her staff are so friendly, so welcoming and very attentive to the needs of the client. Luisa has done a fine job in picking her staff and Im extremely happy I hired her company because it was worth every penny.
Overall I was pleased with her service. I liked the fact that hot food was delivered. This lets me know that it was freshly cooked. In addition every guest was pleased with the service. I would definitely recommend with a 100 percent rating.
Chef Nicholas is great! He does drop-off meals for our family once a week. We keep them in the freezer & my kids eat them on the nights that I work late and don't have time to cook. His meals are healthy, delicious, and actually more affordable than ordering in!
We were thrilled with Charly's cooking and professionalism! He was a great communicator, very nice to be around and the food was great!! We would definitely hire Charly again.
I have been going to his cooking classes that I found on meetup for a while now, and I will keep going every chance i get. He's a great cook, everything we make is delicious, and an excellent teacher, I have learned a lot from him.
Chef Melissa taught a cooking class for myself and 4 friends. She was very fun and informed us on proper cutting technique. We had a lot of allergies/food restrictions and Melissa was very easy to work with regarding these. Her recipes were healthy and delicious! Our menu included Sweet Potato Fritattas, Cod w/ Mango Salsa, Baked breaded artichoke hearts and Almond Butter Cups. We had a great time and would highly recommend her!
I took a great private cooking class with Robert, making several savory Indian dishes and a delicious desert.
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!
I have struggled with food my entire life. For me, believe it or not, I never really loved to eat, and didn’t know what to look for in a good meal. And as a woman, we take care of our skin, our hair, our bodies... but the digestive system carries all the "weight" of daily activities. After working with Chef Kiele, everything changed. She helped kickstart a deep nutritional change for me, the way I thought about food, and the way my body processed food. And the big bonus - I learned how to cook amazing meals, all on my own, without any prior cooking knowledge or experience! Her private cooking lessons felt like an awakening to the necessity of eating right, on more of a soul level. I connect with food, my body, and my health in a whole new way, that is definitely a life-long change and investment.
did a cooking class with the chef. He seemed very knowledgeable about technique and quality. He explained everything clearly. Me and my girlfriend had a great time learning how to make new dishes that we still use till this day. Chef Christopher is awesome!
I hired Leo for my birthday dinner and he was fantastic. He is an excellent chef, came up with an great menu and my dinner party guests raved about him all evening long. He even did the dishes! I would highly recommend him.
