Antwan and his assistant did a wonderful job for our dinner party. He was professional, easy to work with and prepared a terrific meal for 20 people. Everyone enjoyed the dinner. The meal was well thought out, presented nicely and he was able to accommodate some dietary restrictions. We would hire him again!

Vivian has a true passion for preparing meals..She does not have one culture focus, but is versed in many. And although an "Artist" in every way, she loves working closely with us. She had done enough "Prep" work, to make the process in our Kitchen go very smoothly. Meal served on time, right temperature, and a blending of the outstanding flavours made it very memorable. Can't wait for the next presentation. Also, Just "down to Earth"..A real person!.

Dawn was an absolute joy to cook with and her dishes were phenomenal!!! I hired her as a surprise gift for my husband while we were in Clearwater celebrating our 2nd wedding anniversary. She went above and beyond with the little details, creating a nice centerpiece for our dinner and even creating the cutest printed menu for us! We had the greatest conversations while preparing the meal too. She was so friendly and personable. We had a shrimp cocktail appetizer and surf and turf shrimp and chicken pasta. The meats were so full of favor along with a delicious fresh alfredo pasta. Our dessert was even yummier! I would venture to say that her meal was the best one we had while we were in Clearwater, above even the nicest restaurants we dined at. I highly recommend hiring Dawn for your event and if ever we're there again we'll definately be calling her!

Cheryl is the consummate professional. The food is absolutely fantastic, and she makes every effort to ensure that you are getting the meals that you want. We have been using her as a personal chef for the past four months for weekday meals, and every meal has been delicious. She prepared an anniversary dinner for me and my wife, and it was extravagant. Cheryl recently did a dinner party for us as well, and she came in advance, prepped the food for us, and created a beautiful presentation. I can't say enough about her skills and attention to detail/quality - we are just so fortunate to have found her! Please feel free to email me if you would like more detail about her services. gobluemba@gmail.com Adam Gersh and Wende Kozlow

Jenner really impressed us with her cooking. We live internationally and were in the Tampa-bay area for a few weeks this summer while having various friends and family visiting. So I could spend more quality time with them, I hired Jenner to prepare some meals for us each week, as sometimes we had as many as eight people visiting. She was very friendly and professional-always with a smile. She arrived on time and with all the ingredients needed...and my kitchen was always spotless when she left. Jenner worked effortlessly and quietly - but answered any questions we had as she went along. She cooked various types of meals for us over a 3-week period...from an amazing "New Orleans-style shrimp" boil that was to die for, to a finger-licking southern fried catfish, collard greens and macaroni and cheese meal. She also made sure to make some snacks for us to have in between the meals. She catered to our vegetarian requests when necessary. Every week she made us a superb dessert- my favorite was the upside down pineapple cake! But I must add that her guacamole is the best I have ever tasted and I am a Texan! The food she prepared was absolutely delicious and presented beautifully. (She also seems very knowledgeable about the Tampa area and when asked, gave recommendations to a few places-especially a great hair salon I now feel I cannot live without!) Jenner is a sweetheart and obviously very passionate about her work. She did an outstanding job preparing meals for us and surpassed our expectations. I definitely wouldn’t hesitate to hire Jenner again and look forward to working with her the next time we are in town!

Everything about Tiffany's time with us was amazing. It allowed us to have more time together and not have to stress about meals at all. Each meal was presented nicely and tasted amazing. Her calmness in the kitchen was impressive. I think I can speak for our entire group that we were all very thankful for her over the week!

Gillian is awesome! She has been cooking for our family and mother in law who is in her 70's for last 3 weeks. She comes in 2 to 3 times a week providing healthy prepared meals. Gillian has enhanced our nutrition with her amazing chef skills. My husband hums when he eats her meals. We also asked Gillian to cook for a birthday dinner for our extended family as well, it was a flavor explosion! She has enhanced our nutrition, our conversation regarding food and health and our excitement to sit and enjoy a beautiful healthy meal together. She is truly a delight and I would highly recommend her!

Alexandra prepared a meal for 8 friends and I at a rental property on Siesta Key. She did a grat job making suggestions for the meal and we settled on hummus and smoked mullet appetizers, shrimp boil and grilled veggies for our main course and the most delicious key lime tartlets for dessert. The food was excellent and she did a beautiful job setting the stage with butcher paper and candles for the shrimp boil. She also made two simply syrups to use as cocktail mixers. The blackberry was a big hit. The only thing I would do different for next time is to equestrian another appetizer as it did take a bit to get all of the food prepare and we were all very hungry. It was definite worth the weight!

Sarah had just met my 97 year old father who lives alone twice just before Hurricane Irma struck St Petersburg, Fl. Once for the initial interview and then the second time was when she delivered three prepared meals to get him through the hurricane. Not only that, but she contacted me the day after the hurricane to see how he was (fortunately his area was not badly affected). And, as soon as her power was restored a couple of days later, she got busy planning his next scheduled meal...in keeping with his feedback no less! You don't know what peace of mind her foresight, thoughtfulness and concern has brought me, a daughter who lives on the other side of the U.S. who could only watch the weather reports and wait for the worse. I highly recommend her to anyone who has a need for her services. - Sue, California

Colleen had dinner ready exactly on time. She brought the food needed to prepare a delicious dinner. She prepared chicken with a white wine sauce, spinach, yellow squash, and a eye & tummy pleasing salad. Diner was full of vibrant colors, inticing smells and scrumptious food. Colleen cleaned the kitchen and washed every dish by hand (since I don't own a dishwasher). She definitely went the extra mile and to top it off she brought a bonus dessert, her newly tested key lime pie recipe.
