All I can say is that Chef Tony is the man. He is absolutely the best cook I have came across in a long time. The experience for my wife's mothers day surprise was nothing short from superb. The food was OUTSTANDING and he provided a great atmosphere and good conversation while he prepared all meals. The wine tasting was also great and all I can say is I am still FULL 24 hours later. I would definitely recommend Chef Tony to anyone looking for a chef that will meet ALL your needs. We WILL be using him again and again. Looking forward to the next smorgasbord...

Our experience with Anton and his assistant was beyond amazing. Everyone has an expectatIon of how they want their event to be presented. From a sit down dinner wIth cocktail hour for 25 people in our home for thanksgiving. The PRESENTATION was phenomenal. it looked like a Norman Rockwell painting, the turkey, the ham, the gluten free dishes, all the family favorites that we requested. Done to perfection. This was the first holiday meal that I was able to enjoy my guests and not worry about cleaning up afterwards. Everyone raved about the food. Plenty of leftovers that didn't go to waste. We had take home containers for everyone. That was such a hit. That about 10 later we had our company holiday feast in our home catered by Anton. He was able to cater to all dietary needs. From vegan, to paleo, to very upscale palate pleasing dishes. So we challenged Anton one more time, for Christmas eve with our loved ones of 27 give or take. We asked him to do the Italian feast of the seven fishes. Omg is all I can say. What a presentation, from the cocktail hour before dinner, then our sit down dinner with mussels,scallops,clams, and crab. Then we had wrapped filet mignon cooked to order for each person along with grilled vegetables and an assortment of gluten free and vegan dishes to please everything. Even the homemade ice cream that Anton makes himself is yummy. He does not rush you to finish and I appreciated sooo Much. We had lil ones to tend to, so we didn't get a chance to all sit at once sometimes. Anton made us feel like a royalty in our castle, and he was our personal chef. If we could rate him at ten stars, that still wouldn't be enough. He is very versatile in his cooking and preparation and presentation of the meals he prepares. I recently switched sd cards in my phone, or I would have posted some pictures. When I locate,I will post. Price wise, he is reasonable and will work within your Budget and still give you the most enjoyable experience. Champagne dreams and cavier wishes should be one of Anton tag lines. I will say, in the future, the sooner you can plan your event, the better your chances of having Anton fulfill your desire to WOW your guests. Thank You Anton and family, for making our holiday gatherings something to remember .

I met Chef Kim at a birthday party event that she catered. I was impressed with the food and the variety of options so I asked for her card. I later hosted a bbq birthday celebration for my children and didn't feel like cooking, so I contacted Chef Kim. The food was delicious. Many of my guest asked who prepared the food and commented about how good everything was. The service was excellent.....the food was plentiful, well priced, and delivered to my door. She provided all the fixings which made my life easier. Having the party catered by Chef Kim allowed me to enjoy the day and my guest. Thank you for helping to make our party a success.

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.

John cooked for my 6th wedding anniversary. He Took his time to sit down with me to come up with a menu that me and my husband would enjoy. We started off simple with a salad where chef John used his homemade vinaigrette, the main course was a little more complex as he did lamb/ lobster surf and turf and very delicious and we even ended with dessert that was to die for! John cooked everything in our own kitchen which was amazing. Him and his team stayed throughout the whole meal and cleaned up everything I think our kitchen was cleaner than when they got there haha It was a great pleasure to have John and his team cook for us!

Chef Stephanie was AMAZING!! The care she put into preparing my mother's bday dinner was so special. My mother is preparing to start treatments for cancer and Chef Stephanie prepared a menu that catered to my mother's needs and wants. We will absolutely be using Chef Stephanie for any event we have. The food was so fresh - yummy - and first class. In addition - we didn't have to lift a finger!! She prepared the food, served the food, cleaned up and had some laughs with us. I would recommend Chef Stephanie to EVERYONE!!! Thank you for EVERYTHING!!!

I am a highly disorganized and messy person. Yet when I work with Lori I always feel able to confront the task at hand and we inevitably make significant progress. Lori has helped me de-clutter, prepare for taxes, and generally pull myself together. Integral to what I am able to accomplish when we work together is the fact that she is non judgemental. We never talk about why I can't seem to do certain seemingly simple tasks, we just get down to the business at hand. Lori also has a fantastic library of resources. A+ all the way for Lori Olk!!!!

Donna/ Lazy Susan is an outstanding caterer/chef. She has catered several events for me from large cocktail parties, small dinner parties, to family gatherings. With each event, Donna has offered several interesting menus from which to pick. As a chef, she is flexible and willing to adjust her menus so that they fit your exact needs and wants. Donna is so pleasant to work with and extremely organized. But most importantly, her food is delicious. I never want her meals to end and at every party I have hosted, my friends and family fave about the food. Triple thumbs up for Lazy Susan!!

Great hands-on teacher who really knows what he's doing. Plus, the food is sooo good!! From ingredients to cooking methods, this is the best cooking class I ever had. I learned new techniques and how to properly season, prep, and cook veggies and proteins. Definitely recommend and I'll work with him again soon. Perfect for a gift, meal prep, or to cook a whole meal for a party.

The dishes are delicious and fresh. The lunch dish I ordered over the weekend was hot and fresh. My favorites are the coconut rice, chicken and ribs! I can't forget about the coco bread! It's so addictive! If you're looking for authentic Honduran cuisine or just a good home cooked meal, this is the place to order from!!
