After having my initial event date change, I was worried about hiring a caterer on this site. :/ Actually, our original caterer canceled on us at the last minute, so we gave thumbtack a shot anyway. Chef Jose was quick to reply, and gave us the lowest quote out of the 4 we received. I told him about the bind we were in, and he ultimately told me that that they could make it happen. Chef Jose was easy to talk to and created a list of all of our preferred menu options. Surprisingly enough, he even took note of our favorite restaurants in the area, which I personally think was quite a touch of class. The following morning, Chef Brian called me to inform he had produced 3 menus based on Jose's notes, which appeared in my inbox to discuss. I was beyond amazed as Chef Brian scheduled a tasting at my request the following evening. My son and 2 of his friends, along with my wife and I, arrived to Chef Jose's office and were so impressed as soon as we walked in. The kitchen was all stainless steel, immaculately sanitized, and the tasting area was all set. Chef Brian arranged dish after dish, while Chef Jose described each and gave us a run down of how they would be executed at our event. They even offered us wine and champagne, as well as plenty of treats and items they had been working on earlier in the day. We literally felt like we were recording for a cooking show as both chefs featured some amazing French cheeses and their eclectic collection of different preserves! Oh, and the maple bacon popcorn!!! Oh, em gee...We were totally blown away, and felt so lucky to have our original caterer cancel on us for a more lucrative event. These guys rock!!! Totally seems like this team treats their work like fun as they are so passionate with their menu ideas, personable with their manners, and affable with their warmth for their clients. After how they took care of us, I couldn't help but to write such a thorough review. I highly recommend Chefs Jose & Brian from Dade County Food Group, and will insist that my friends have their functions catered by them, too.
I hired The Dancing Palate for my boyfriends birthday. I wanted to make his birthday special and memorable. Instead of going out to a restaurant, the restaurant came to us! In my first meeting with Chef Paul, he took his time to explain to me the current menu, services and clean up, customizing a menu to my liking, pricing, etc. I have to say that Chef Paul delivered better than I expected! He was prompt to my home, dinner was served on time, did a cooking demonstration and every single course was absolutely delicious! My boyfriend was really impressed! We had the jalapeno bites and meatballs with homemade barbecue pineapple sauce, the braised beef short ribs on a bed of cauliflower and stuff chicken sausage with pasta. For dessert, the chocolate cheesecake with sauce and whipped cream on the side with a mint as a garnish. I highly recommend "The Dancing Palate" to everyone! I am so glad that found them via Thumbtack. The Dancing Palate was professional, kind, and very entertaining. I will request their services in the near future.
An exceptional class taught by an exceptional Chef! I am working on my culinary certification and had asked Chef Maury's help to polish my skills up. It took a couple of months until I could finally schedule my class (my schedule won't permit) but Chef Maury replied promptly whenever I send him a message. The class itself lasted for about 4 hours, concentrating on knife skills, stock making and basic cooking techniques. He was very keen in making sure I make the right cuts and correcting me right away. His kitchen is a standard home kitchen so you don't have to worry about being intimidated by big equipment. Whether you have a culinary background like I do or just a home cook who wants to learn more, Chef Maury is the right guy to show you the ropes. I am already looking forward to my next class!
Julian was so much fun and an excellent instructor. I will definitely recommend him for private events and cooking classes.
Chef Ricardo did a cooking class for 12 of my friends and it was awesome!! After the class he serves us an incredible 3 course dinner of what he had taught us to make! My friends are talking about it!!
For years I dreamed of a cooking class that taught you how to cook not how to follow a recipe. Chef Ana’s teaching was creative and has opened my mind to creative cooking. It was also a lot of fun!
Chef Mark is fantastic! The quality of ingredients makes the end result superb! I’ve had many meals cooked by him and keep coming back for more! Highly recommend!
Their food was amazing. I don't usually eat some ingredients in some of the dishes but I wanted to taste the food the way they made it. I'm glad I did!
My wife and I were recently on a trip to South Florida to celebrate our anniversary and we had the pleasure of Cher Davin to prepare for us, one of the best meals we've had. The entire evening was special, and Chef Davin added to our experience with class, artistry in his presentation and flavor combinations, and lastly with an incredibly friendly and caring manner. We would highly recommend Davin to cook for you in any place whether home, business or vacation. We will certainly reach out to Davin in the future for other special occasions!!
Yummy food, Chef Wally was awesome!
I received cooking lessons from Chef Dennis and he taught me in a way that was easily understood. I have now used his lessons in all my cooking techniques. He used the finest quality foods. I am able to make meals that I thought I would never be able to make as he taught me step by step. He was a pleasure to work with and very knowledgeable. VERY SMART INVESTMENT !
It was great having chef Patrick Thezan cook for our family and friends. A very pleasant experience! And we definitely look forward to having him cook for us again! B.L.
My class used PCS events for our graduation party this past Friday and it turned out amazing! From the first meeting to the tasting to the actual event everything was perfect! Since it was a class event we were on a budget and Barbara was able to work with us and rearrange a few things so our budget would work out for the type of event we had in mind. We gave Barbara all of our ideas and when we arrived to the event after our grad ceremony we were shocked. Everything was perfectly how we imagined it! Barbara and her staff were very friendly and cooperative to all of our needs and I could not have asked for a better turn out! I will most definitely be using PCS events again in the future.
I went vegan for 90 days thanks to Ms Hinds and it was the best 90 days of my life. She would come and cook for me and she would always have a smile on her face.I've had a a few chefs but no one comes close to Ms. Hinds. The love and passion she puts into the food is indescribable. What impressed me the most is the fact that even though she was so detailed when it came down to her presentation. I have no complaints what so ever. Can't wait to be a millionaire so I can hire her for life. Best work I've seen thus far hands down. I highly recommend her to anyone. 5 stars and two thumbs up.
