Working with Chrissy to coordinate the catering for our wedding made things so seamless and took a lot of the stress away! She and the staff from Eleven Courses on the day of our wedding always made sure my husband and I were taken care of & worked with our other vendors as if they'd known each other for years! Not to mention, the food was fantastic and our guests are still raving about it! Last minute changes? Budget concerns? No problem! Chrissy & Eleven Courses handled it with ease. I highly recommend this company to anyone needing catering services in the Baltimore area!

I had Chef Danielle come into my home for a cooking lesson/dinner party for my husband's 40th birthday party. She arrived on time 1/2 hour before the class would start to set up and was there for about 4 hours. It was really easy working the menu and I was happy with the menu options she presented me and the ability to make more then one entre to satisfy the tastes of all the members of the group (8 adults). We all had a blast from those that cook on the regular, to those of us (me) that don't ever cook. I was expecting my kitchen to look like a total disaster after having had 8 adults cooking in my kitchen, but she cleaned up everything! The food was fantastic and I had left overs that we enjoyed days later. Thanks for a great time Chef Danielle!

Lynn is a pleasure to work with. As a nutrition coach I needed meals that met specific nutritional criteria, contained a wide variety of foods and cooking methods. Lynn met and exceeded my expectations. Highly recommend!

My experience with Jenn was professional and phenomenal. She has given me great customer service.. She made a 30th flower decor bday cake that was pretty, moist and tasty.. Everyone loved it.. She had made many bday cakes for my family that were breath taking tasty and then the latest cake was the retirement party cake! That thing was awesome!! Oh last but not least homegirl will travel to meet you! What better service can you get... DMV loves you Jenn.. Thanks for everything, love Vest

Ashley is very professional. So far she has been punctual, or close to punctual, and her price is reasonable. Also, she gives good portions. I would say that the food the first week was average. The food was fresh, however there were some strange pairings with fruits and a soupy quality to a lot of the meals that my palate was not quite used to. However, I think she is still learning my preferences as it is only the second week now and the cuisine seems to better so far. If you don't want to spend an arm and a leg on meal service, I'd recommend her. Just tell her your preferences and choose a menu that you're familiar with.
