Over the years, Rich has catered many events for me. From a chefs birthday party for 13 year old girls to a fully catered holiday dinner party. Every detail was perfection and the food was amazing!

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 were so happy to have chosen Chef Anne to cater our Mom's 90th Birthday Party. From my first conversation with her to follow up email she was helpful professional and provided first rate service. Chef Anne made recommendations as well as guided me thru selecting Glueten Free etc type dietary concerns. I felt like Ive known her for years as she is so easy to work with, now I have a friend in the catering business. We had many positive comments how delicious everything was and I would recommend her and will be happy to call her again.

Marylyn & her staff helped me throw a successful cocktail party for about 10 people. Everything went smoothly from my initial phonecall with her, during which she helped plan my menu, to the wonderful food she provided. Marylyn arrived promptly at my home and went straight to work giving me directions for finishing some of the dishes and even added some decorative pieces to display on the platters of food. I received many compliments from my guests on the food and even had enough to provide them with doggie bags! Marylyn even followed up with an email and phone all to make sure everything went as planned. I would definitely recommend Juste Horsdoeuvres and would consider using them again

Chef Daniel delivered a great experience for a bunch of us friends away for a special weekend. He was able to make anything we wished for and had some great menu suggestions as well. He made a BBQ brisket so succulent and savory, along with an array of other dishes. It was an awesome meal. Chef came prepared, set things up nicely, and cleaned up after we were done. He was a pleasure to work with and we'd recommend him to anyone looking for a personal chef.

I can not describe the quality and service of Sunflowers Catering and Event Planning. Chef Laura and her staff are very organized and personable. From the very first phone call to the last hour of my parents 70th wedding anniversary party the service was beyond our expectations. Sunflowers works with your budget and provides the 5 star service and quality at 3 star prices that they claim to provide. We will use them again no questions asked. Thank you for making my parents milestone anniversary a very memorable one.

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.

Delicious professionally prepared and cooked food delivered to our door! Our family receives breakfast, lunch and dinner and we can't believe we didn't do this a long time ago. Since I'm not able to make our meals anymore we struggled for a while until we spoke to Maison Prive Chefs. They understand our dietary needs and clearly strive to help people. I asked to change one thing and it was done immediately. They make sure we are happy with the food and service all the time. Maison Prive is truly a blessing for us and I would recommend it to everyone!

The white wolf Chef was an extremely nice person to deal with. His ideas were very innovative and pleasing to all my guests. He was punctual for my event. The overall presentation was beyond words and very well worth the money. His costs were very reasonable....Overall, he presented himself like the professional he is.I am going to use him again as soon as I have another event.

I had to hire a chef to come for a small bday dinner for my boyfriend. I needed one on short notice and Nate was ready and able to make this night fantastic! He provided some wonderful options for the menu, showed up on time, and executed several dishes perfectly. He and his assistant were polished and polite. All was provided for a reasonable price. Our whole party had a wonderful time and can't wait to have him back again.

We used Adrianne for a party this past weekend and she went over and beyond! From the planning all the way to clean up Adrianne was helpful and very professional. The guest loved her and her cocktails were delicious. She was flexible, arrived early, made sure everyone had a drink at all times, customized as needed, and interacted with guests! I would recommend her for everyone with no hesitation. I am so glad we were fortunate to have her bartend our party.
