I have known Alison for 23 years. Allison has catered many events for me from baby showers to Super Bowl parties she hits the mark every time! The food looks amazing and taste even better. Allison has the innate ability to go into someone's kitchen and move around it as if it were her own. She is a master in the kitchen with a heart of gold. Allison uses the same care and love when cooking for your family or friends that she does her own. Cooking is her passion and it shows whether she's in her home or yours. I believe her sparkling personality and incredible Talent will make your occasion truly special. If she has sent you a quote do yourself a favor and reach out to her, you will not be disappointed.

Allison and her husband were wonderful to work with. They communicated promptly, everything was discussed and dealt with reasonably. Allison worked with me to create a menu that everyone loved. She took care of everything I needed for the party, and I was able to relax and enjoy myself. The food was outstanding. They handled problems that arose without missing a beat. I can't wait to hold another event and have them cater it.

Allison was a true pleasure to work with and an ultimate professional -- even more importantly, her appetizer creations for my cocktail event were deliciously devoured by my guests, each of whom asked for Allison's contact information. I should have kept her as "my secret" but Allison's skills with all-things-food is too special not to share. I will certainly use Allison again for my next catered event!

I highly recommend Shore is Delicious, Catering by Teresa. I contracted with Teresa to cater an after (Wedding) reception party at my house in Gambrills. Teresa was extremely helpful in helping me decide what menu would be appropriate, providing suggestions and alternatives during the planning process. Teresa was very easy to get a hold of when needed, and responded with the answers to my questions very quickly. A majority of the food that Teresa served to my 65 guests was hand made, and it was absolutely delicious! Teresa's cooking skills and ability to create a balanced menu were impressive. Teresa and her crew were on time, and had the area set-up and ready to go by the time my guests started to arrive after the wedding reception. She went out of her way by providing tasteful table coverings and center pieces, even thought I did not ask for those. The quality of her work was excellent! Aside from the delicious food, the most impressive attribute of Teresa's catering service was their willingness to provide the "Complete Service." Teresa prepared all of the food, delivered it, served it and stayed until the end, making sure that the area was 100% clean and in order before she left. In addition, Teresa brought along a crew of helpers that provided anything that was needed to ensure that my guests had a good time. When researching for caterers, this was tough to find. Most wanted to make the food, put it on the tables and go. Not Teresa. In closing, I highly recommend and without reservation Shore is Delicious, Catering by Teresa for anyone's catered event. The planning, preparation and care taken by Teresa and her crew was fabulous. Tom Doyle

Teresa and her team were fabulous. I had a Oktoberfest for our community event with around 200 people. From day one Teresa was in constant contact with me. She chose a menu that was spot on. The day of the event she arrived early and brought a total of 7 people. Her staff was all very professional and very willing to work. We had tons of compliments not only on the food but Teresa and her staff. They kept the trays of food full at all times and let us keep all the leftovers. We will absolutely use her for all our future catering needs. We have also received a few messages from residents asking for her information. I’m so happy we chose to hire Shore is delicious.

Teresa and crew were fantastic! They pulled off the very difficult task of providing catering for 75 ppl over an entire day. The food was delicious, service prompt and courteous and she left our kitchen clean and organized. Thank you Teresa!

Jim catered an event for 15 of my coworkers. He was great to work with-very professional, and had great menu suggestions. We did a Mexican theme, and the food was delicious. The hors d'oeuvres were beautiful and delicious. The main course was served buffet style and was equally delicious. I highly recommend Jim and will definitely use him again.

Jim catered a volunteer appreciation event for our Chester County non-profit and the variety, quality and creativity of the food made our volunteers feel special and made our gratitude palpable and explicit. If you are seeking a dining experience that is healthy yet several notches above the ordinary, I highy recommendbJim and Culinary Architects.

I can't you how wonderful Tanya and her staff made our Derby Style Engagement Party! Tanya is an amazing chef and worked with me to create a menu that fit our theme and our tastes! Besides being a fabulous cook, she provided us a first class menu while remaining within out budget. Her staff was simply delightful, and served our guests like true professionals. They came in, set up, prepared, served and cleaned up without any problems. There wasn't a single moment I felt overwhelmed with questions - they all knew exactly what they were doing. I thought it was so sweet that knew that my fiance' and I wouldn't have time to actually eat at our party - so she saved us plates of our favorite foods to eat later in the night. I would highly recommend Tanya! She's a talented chef, excellent communicator and wonderful business woman. She made our Kentucky Derby Engagement Party come to life!

I have been using the services of Chef Tanya for 11 months now. She has been providing weekly dinners and some snacks twice a month for my children and I. I have 3 children which are very picky eaters and they LOVE the meals Chef Tanya prepares. In July I hosted a family reunion of 40 and I had Chef Tanya do all the food. What a spread- even homemade ice cream! Next month my brothers and I are giving our parents a "dinner for two" prepare by Chef Tanya as an anniversary gift. I know it will be fantastic. I have recommended Chef Tanya to my friends and co-workers.. Her food is so good.

I recently had a 40th Birthday Party for my Husband. Lenny and his team did a phenomenal job understanding my requests and executing exactly what was desired. Lenny was extremely flexible with my schedule and so completely accommodating. The party was a great success! Lisa, Bill and Maria were fantastic! They were so personable and took great care of everyone! They blended right into our family! The products we rented (tent, tables, chairs, bar, linens, etc) were so clean and classy. The high top LED tables were a big hit and brought the party atmosphere to a whole new level! Thank you for a job well done!!!

Ronald Leider, Executive Chef of Mobile Chef Catering is a truly innovative young man. He blew our family away at an extravagant Gala he catered for 150 people this past October. Their presentation was something beyond just food. Ronald's technic in dressing the dishes is was truly an art form. From the delicious tuna tatar towers as appetizers to the split plate ribeye and swordfish for dinner that melted in your mouth, it was just simply phenomenal. The staff is wonderful as well, they are so accommodating and you barely notice they are there(in a good way). We got his card and booked him for almost every family event we have had in the past year! They are willing to do small intimate events but specialize in large parties. There are no limitations with this company and thats why we give them a 5 star rating.

Makos Catering is PHENOMENAL!! I highly recommend this company to anyone throwing a party big or small! They arrived on time, had everything set up per my request and went ABOVE and BEYOND my expectations! The food was exactly how I wanted it and the set up was extremely professional. They made everyone happy including myself. I did not have to worry about a thing! I will definitely use this catering company for future parties.

Chef has catered three events for me. Each experience has been better than the one before. He has a range of skills that have allowed me to provide a remarkable in-home dining experience for my special guests. Creativity, knowledge, and know-how in menu and culinary preparation, and promptness, attention to details, professionalism and flexibility all come together at THE EVENT! He is presently scheduled to return to my home again.

The evening was magical and a great way to ring in the New Year. Darrell was spot on with every part of his menu. From the soup to salad to entree and dessert (with a little palette cleansing too) it was absolutely superb! All of my guests said it was the best meal they have ever had! Hands down I would recommend Chef Darrell for anyone's catering needs. Big or small he can do it all! Bravo Chef Darrell!!
