First let me start off by saying the entire experience with chef Tony was phenomenal. I treated my awesome wife to her first in home personal chef experience for her birthday. Chef Tony provided everything from table dressings to cleanup. My wife had a delicious stuffed lobster while I enjoyed a wonderful filet mignon. We had about 4 courses all delicious. He was very accommodating with the menu and very personable during the dinner. Highly recommend him and can't wait to book his services again. Thank you again Chef Tony!!!

I contacted Chef Anton for a one time personal chef session for a birthday dinner (2 people). I spoke with him about pricing and made the decision to hire him with about a week to spare, which he assured me wouldn't be a problem. Chef Anton exuded confidence and professionalism, and not to mention he delivered a DELICIOUS meal. My boyfriend and I were truly impressed (and stuffed!). In addition to the remarkable dinner and dessert, we had the pleasure of speaking with Chef Anton about his extensive experience in the food industry. Chef Anton made this a night to remember for the both of us, and it most certainly won't be the last time that he'll hear from us. I could never thank him enough!

Kim created a special dinner menu for our son, who turned 25! She asked about likes and dislikes and was very flexible in planning for exactly what we wanted. Kim showed up on time and prepared a fabulous meal at Jake's home for 8 people. Kim brought along a server, and cleaned up for us. Everything was fresh and delicious! We loved the way she thought outside the box and was so willing to make the menu suit our tastes! I would recommend Kim for any personal chef needs!

I worked with Chef Rock to plan my mother's 80th birthday party. We had 20 people and it is always difficult to please everyone; however, Chef Rock was able to plan a menu that was versatile and tasty! The chef made sure he considered people's diet and health needs before he planned the meals. I loved that Jim was completely prepared and self-sufficient, so it didn't matter how well the kitchen was stocked (or not). We had a taco bar and enchiladas one night and I was really impressed that the chef served homemade tortillas and he roasted the fresh chills. The following evening we had a beautiful rib roast with all the trimmings, fresh vegetables and potatoes dauphinoise. I was really impressed with Chef Rock's attention to detail, including warmed plates, the tastiest condiments and dips, as well as plenty of fresh fruit. I highly recommend hiring a personal chef for this kind of event since we only had 2 1/2 days to spend quality time with each other and travelled from five different states. Chef Rock also made sure everything was ready depending on our schedule. If we hadn't made this arrangement with our chef, I'm sure we would have been eating dinner at midnight! Luckily we had plenty of room in the house so the chef could stay the whole time, making coffee in the morning and providing all the clean-up. Thanks Jim for making this great event so memorable and special.

Chef John and his crew recently catered our son’s graduation party for 80+ people. Food was excellent - I recommend the pork sliders yum! They took care of everything from set up, serving, passed appetizers, paper products and clean up! It was a great party and I had many rave reviews from family & friends. Chef John is very accommodating and willing to work to make your party spectacular.

She catered my daughter's Outdoor Graduation Party. Her staff came early and went beyond the call of duty, setting up tables & chairs, grilling fantastic tasting food & constantly asking if I needed anything else. I give her company 5 stars. :-)

I love Brian and the crew at Dish and Design. They will work with your budget, no matter what it is, and they deliver delicious food! Their chicken salad cups are to die for! I highly recommend them for whatever your event - I've used them for several personal parties and had their food at a wedding, a gala event, and a non-profit party.

We look forward to his delicious, professionally prepared cooking for a delicious sit down family dinner at home saving us from the preparation time or cleanup afterward. Each meal is customized to our tastes with Matt making suggestions and we give our input about what we want to have that week. We highly recommend his services.
