Tony Lawrence prepared an amazing array of Asian and other global dishes for my 80th birthday party in our home on September 19, 2014. We had 18 guests and they all loved Tony and his great staff. We have received nothing but compliments from our guests for a great party with delicious food and wine. No one left hungry and my family got to enjoy all the left overs. Tony was both efficient and flexible in the planning and preparation , with lots of fun and creative ideas. Of all the recommended chefs we spoke to , Tony was the only one who made a site visit before we even committed to use his services. He then made another visit closer to the date. Menu was impressive and we will definitely use Tony for our future catering needs.

I'm completing this survey based on our delings so far. Up to this point dealing with Shannon has proven to be a true professional. She is punctual and very easy to deal with. I gather certain dishes are better done by her husband, whom I take it is a very qualified chef. I love it when a family works together. I have faith that they will deliver the party I expect.

What a wonderful experience! Feast Caterer and Chef Anton are the best. The food was amazing and every detail was taken care of - from the set-up to the clean up, and everything in between. We loved everything and so did all of my guests. I will be using them again! I only decided to have this Surprise Party for my husband's birthday, 3 weeks before, and nothing was a problem, even with short notice. I loved the variety of dishes available and there was nothing that we didn't love. I hope everyone gets to experience Chef Anton and Feast!

Excellent service all around. Locally grown, and sourced in Lancaster county. Everything was either home cooked or prepared right in our kitchen. The chefs were professional and friendly. It was nice having them at our house. After diner they cleaned up the whole kitchen. Melissa said she enjoys researching any cuisine, so don't be afraid to ask for something exotic. Our dinner was for my wife's birthday, and included our immediate family. Everyone was very impressed. Our only wish was that we had more spacious stomachs. I highly recommend Stone Hill Catering and hope to have them over to prepare another special dinner.

We had a wonderful experience from the very beginning just scheduling this process. When our chef, Allison arrived, she immediately made us feel like we had been family all along! She was extremely professional, informative and educational while being easy to talk with, answered any questions with superior knowledge and some history, too, which made our cooking lesson fantastic! We cannot wait to have her back in our home!! We are so happy we tried this service and certainly recommend Allison to anyone wanting to give this a try!!

Jim and his staff prepared and served the food for our 50 anniversary garden party. Jim prepared much of the food in our garden and every morsel he served was both usual and delicious. Jim listened to our suggestions and then improved on them with multiple tapas, a gigantic skillet of paella, homemade ice cream, and pastries. He had previously served our family a plated sit down dinner that was equally delicious. Jim is not one of those tense, temperamental chefs. He made both evenings seem effortless and his congenial personality even added to the festivities. When he left, the kitchen was immaculate.

When I met with Chef John for a contract signing he was very professional and accommodating to my very specific needs and wants. While creating the menu and going over it chef John catered to some foods I really wanted to include Because of my ethnic background. He was very accepting to looking into these dishes recreating them in his own way but still keeping their authentic taste for the dinner.

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.

About

I am an extremely affordable and highly skilled personal chef, available in Philadelphia and in surrounding areas, for all occasions. I can cook at your home, bring you fully prepared meals with simple instructions, or cater small parties. I am very flexible and very affordable. I am looking to get a name for myself, and let my reputation speak for itself before I want to become profitable. I am a self-taught at-home cook or personal chef. I've always been able to cook since I was a child, but over the past 8 or so years, my skill level has really jumped leaps and bounds. Long story short, I was about 23 or 24 when I was fairly broke. I am now 31. I had to work with what was in my pantry and refrigerator every night on a very tight budget. Combined that with books and the food network, I was able to create some really tasty and unique dishes. Over the years, I've come a long way in my career, outside of cooking, to be able to afford better and fresher products, and my skill level and technique have exceeded my expectations beyond belief. Over the past four or five years, I really started to notice that people I would cook for weren't just saying "Oh, this is good. Can I have the recipe?" It was more along the lines of "Wow, I would order this any day of the week in a restaurant." Or "This is amazing. You really should think about opening up a restaurant or get a TV cooking show." It was then when I realized this skill might be a little bit more than just an above-average at-home cook type of ability. I did some work in a professional kitchen, while I was in Colorado at a three-star restaurant. This was more of getting a feel of the day-to-day life of running a kitchen. The executive chef really took me under his wings, and showed me a lot of little things that I probably never would've even thought about. From there, I started doing personal chef work and small party catering for friends and family. I did this all free of charge, because I loved it so much. My brother, who can be a skeptic, or some might say a realist, of my crazy ideas, even told me this is something I should really go for. That brings us to the present. I got married and moved to Philly in a three-week period from early March to the beginning of April, so I had taken some time off, before and after that period, to get organized. Since then, I cooked for a mothers' day party at our tiny loft apartment in Old City, for 15 people, and it was a huge hit. I literally did everything when it came to food prep, cooking, and so on. My wife and I recently put together a fundraiser event for our dog's knee surgery. Society hill's newest restaurant let us take over the place for a day to help raise funds for our pup and local animal shelters. I took over the kitchen, and cooked for about 60 or so people, and probably put out 300 plus hors d'oeuvres, more or less by myself. We actually had a full-page article in the Philadelphia Daily News about it. We're going to be on Mary Talks Money, comcast channel 245, and NBC 10 is going to do a piece on it, too. So that's more or less my story. I hate to use a cliche term, but I do a lot of fusion. Italian and Asian, mixed with some modern American, is probably the best way to describe my cooking. For example, I called one of the hors d'oeuvres I cooked at the fundraiser as an Asian inspired eggplant Rollatini. It was thin eggplant slices marinated in sesame oil, and then grilled. Placed in a wonton wrapper, and topped with a garlic basil ricotta mixture, and rolled. After it has been pan seared for a crispy outside, I topped it with a sweet and spicy oyster sauce, and soy sauce reduction. That is probably a good example of me in a nutshell when it comes to my style. I am also excellent with normal Italian and Asian cuisine, and my modern American cuisine has really come along way. Usually, there is an Italian or Asian twist on my modern American dishes. With all that being said, I can do simple, traditional or more everyday cooking very easily. I love the farmers' market, fresh herbs, and cooking healthy. My website is coming soon, and referrals are available upon request. Feel free to contact me for any questions or concerns.
