I recently hired The Exotic Chef for my annual Christmas Party and I couldn’t be happier with their service. They were punctual, professional, and a pleasure to work with. The food was amazing and exceeded my expectations. Christina and the staff were kind and communicative throughout the planning process and at the time of the event, which made the experience even more enjoyable. The food was so good, my guests are still talking about the dinner. I’m very picky with food I enjoyed every item provided. I plan to use this company more in the future and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a catering service that goes above and beyond. I even requested similar items for my personal Christmas dinner just because I enjoyed it some much at the Christmas party. You will not be disappointed working with this company. The options are plentiful and the staff is flexible to work with any idea and budget.

Details: Dinner party • Dinner • Cocktail hour or hors d'oeuvres • Dessert • American - casual • American - Southern • American - formal • I'm flexible • Yes, full service • Home • Yes, full kitchen • 20 - 29 guests • Serving and warming equipment • I'm flexible

I had an amazing experience with Christina and her team. My family needed a caterer for my mother’s homegoing service and I’m so glad that I found her through Thumbtack. The food was tasty, her service was 5 stars and she genuinely showed concern and assistance during such a stressful and heartbreaking time. I am so thankful for her generosity and outpouring of love. I would highly recommend her and her team for all of your catering needs!

Details: Funeral • Dinner • Non-alcoholic drinks • American - Southern • Buffet • No, drop off only • Religious or spiritual space • Yes, full kitchen • 50 - 59 guests • Standard (basic ingredients)

You don’t need to look any further for catering for your event! THIS IS IT! During our first planning call, she was able to help plan out the perfect menu while remaining in budget! For our event we decided to go with a selection of hors d’oeuvres, and can tell you, the way she elevated this event with her food was incredible! The flavors were to die for! Professional, on time, quality was on point, and her beautiful plating! She did it all! I will definitely be using her again! My guest were blown away!
