I cannot say enough about Dade County Food Group. My husbands co. was honoring him for 30 years of service, and I wanted to host them at our house. I had never hired a private chef before, but I was completely thrilled with the experience. Chef Brian and Chef Jose, was awesome to work with. The food they prepared was outstanding. They were professional and very friendly with my guests. And they cleaned up! A total bonus in my book. Thanks again!
Chef Dan is amazing. I spoke to him at length about how I wanted to plan the bachelorette festivities for my friend months in advance. Not only was he very quick to respond, he was friendly and super knowledgeable. He put together a menu based on my specifications and showed on on the first day with a bright smile and a fantastic personality. Even though the kitchen in our rental unit was less than fantastic, he still stuck to the menu and made sure we had a wonderful experience. He was super prepared! And on top of all of that? The food was amazing. Everything was phenomenal. In addition to preparing great food, Chef Dan fully interacted with our group and fit right in! He played music while he cooked and went a step above his duties by making cute menus for our bachelorette dinner. Chef Dan did a wonderful job and I'd be happy to recommend him to anyone looking for a great private chef. Thanks Chef Dan!
As this was our first go-around without our mother who ran the best Christmas kitchen ever, we decided to look into catering which then led us to the "private chef" concept offered by Jeffrey Sternberg who owns and operates Rosemary and Thyme Catering. Jeffrey was one of 3 caterers who offered their services through Thumbtack, and right from his online presence, we knew that Jeffrey would be the one who would come through on the home-cooked feel we were seeking. One phone call led to an invitation to his home where we were regaled with samples of his work ... now that is service for you! Planning out the meals was a collaborative effort where we told Jeffrey about all our traditional fare over the 3-day feast with Jeffrey being most accommodating to our habitual dishes but all the while making recommendations here and there which we gladly accepted ... it was a very easy and enjoyable process. Everything was delicious, truly surpassing our expectations. There were even several batches of shortbread made up for our inspection before choosing the version that best matched the type of shortbread we were accustomed to. The cauliflower and celery casseroles were actually better than we had ever made ourselves and the filet roast of beef for the day after Christmas was without a doubt the best we'd ever tasted. If there was any negative to be found, it was simply in that there was way more food prepared for us than we could ever expect to eat ... we froze the leftovers and are still enjoying the odd Jeffrey meal ... talk about getting excellent value for your money! The only exception to the quantity was the gravy that only lasted the one meal of Christmas dinner. And Jeffrey also surprised us with plenty of extras like a 4th appetizer that we had not ordered, dips that we had not ordered for the appetizers, and mayo and mustard spreads for our sandwiches, and the killer was an extra turkey roasted in the oven in case we did not end up being fond of the grilled turkey that he recommended. The one hitch was that the re-heating instructions did not specify "convection" or take into account that all six dishes were to be reheated in the oven simultaneously, so the food was not ready when we were led to believe it would be, but it was well worth the wait in the end because everything was outstanding. Service, service, service ... that is what Jeffrey is all about ... and he really knows what he's doing ... you can just relax or else spend the time you save in the kitchen fretting over more interesting Christmas activities ... Thanks so very much to you Jeffrey ... you saved the Holidays for us ... the best to you and your family in 2016. Lorri H. Jan 07/16
Surprised my girlfriend for Valentine's Day with a private chef and I'm so glad I decided to work with Chef Paul! He is very professional and has a wide variety of meals to chose from. We had the bruschetta bread and jalapeno appetizers and for the main courses had a black and blue filet with cauliflower puree and a sausage stuffed chicken with a side of pasta, all of which were amazing!! Also had a New York style cheesecake for dessert, A lot of great food for a great price! One of the best parts was Chef Paul cleaned up before he left and you would have never known he was even there! I would definitely recommend Chef Paul for your next private party!!
I hired Chef David at Tasty Creations Catering to be a private chef for my boss and his family of 16 while in the Keys on Vacation. It is extremely hard to pick a chef from hundreds of miles away over the phone, but David put me at ease and was amazing to work with from the start. My boss came back from vacation with lots of compliments on the amazing food, the fact that the Chef was so flexible on preparation and timing as well. It was a major relief that Chef David fit right into the family and was able to make this such a positive experience for all. Definitely made my life easier! We will be using him again on our next trip to the area.
We had a birthday dinner for my mother and we wanted to hire a private chef and Traci completely delivered! He was the consummate professional. He worked with us on the menu and the food was DELICIOUS! We raved about every course. He left us wanting more. If we come back to Florida we would definitely hire Chef Traci again!! I highly recommend him!!
Chef Segrato was a pleasant surprise. He was always punctual, coming early. He had many of his own recipes that we enjoyed. Chef Julian was polite and got along well with the children. Julian organized my kitchen and it really worked for making things easier to prepare meals. He cooked healthy and nutritious meals, even making his own spices to our liking. We had many left overs to enjoy and share. They always cleaned the kitchen and dining areas after dinner service. We especially enjoyed the wholesale food costs and his access to restaurant quality food. The fresh pasta was delicious but our favorite was definitely his Columbian Beef Stew. We most assuredly will use his private chef services for many years to come and are thrilled to have found such a talented and professional chef so close to our home.
I booked this caterer for my wedding on 12/30/17. I'm Jamaican and my husband and I wanted the jerk chicken with rice and pease. We also had the chance to taste the food prior to booking for the wedding. We worked with Kathy and told her what we like and didn't like at the tasting. The food was awesome at the wedding ! I would like for the chef to be recognized. We had so many compliments about the food. To my regret i didn't get the chance to take any pictures of the food. The servers were so kind and punctual. They provided awesome services. Thank you all for the great work.
The service provided by Chef Garrido company was outstanding. Desiree was prompt, courteous and very professional. They provided a gourmet meal for over 50 people at my 60th birthday party. All my friends and family raved about the delicious food which was of the highest quality and cooked to perfection. They were extremely organized and efficient in serving this large group. Besides preparing the food they were extremely helpful in the kitchen organizing all aspects of the meal. I would highly recommend there company to anybody planning an event that needs to be catered . I know for sure I will use them again in the future. This survey is coming from a person that loves to eat. Thanks for all your help!! Howard & Sussy Rosen March 11, 2017
I could Never say enough about Tesia, and neither could my 6 bridesmaids! Ive been day dreaming about her incredible meals every day since we met! She was very organized and assertive and accommodating (which I've had trouble finding with other chefs), as incredible in her skill as promised, and not to mention she was fun loving and easy going - the perfect fit for our group of ladies. THANK YOU TESIA!! Until next time!!
Despite the confusion with the dates (my mistake) I will say Paella VIP came thru for my event. The paella, salad and chicken filled tostonrd was loved by all my guests and family. Beautiful presentation, on time service and Chef Jorge was very professional. Thank you again for the wonderful service and great food!
EVERYTHING. The Chef is amazing, the staff she hires are amazing, the food is amazing. All of it is an amazing experience. Everyone is so welcoming and willing to help you when you don't know something. I love it.
I really enjoy everything served from this food truck. I have yet to be disappaointed. Finally some real carribean food served in your local area. The chef is extremely friendly and you can taste the love in his food. I highly recommend his ceviche, fish dip or my all time favorite the oxtail!
Food was delicious. I've hired a few private chefs in the past, and he is someone I would use again.
José was the epitome of a personal chef. I have set up events with chefs before and he blew us away with his professionalism, delicious cooking, and personality as a whole! Jose made the process very easy and he quoted a great price that we were comfortable with. He did not try to rip us off like other chefs try to do. We are all from out of town for a bachelorette party and wanted to do a fun night in to relax and have great food for our last night. He prepared homemade Chinese food with spring rolls, dumplings, fried rice, sticky chili chicken, broccoli, and a delicious chocolate cake cup dessert with vanilla ice cream! His sticky chili chicken had a Peruvian twist and was party favorite! A few of us have a serious peanut and shellfish allergy and he suggested foods to have on the menu and was very responsive to any needs we needed. I would recommend him to anyone and will definitely use if we are back in town! Thank you José!!!
She is an awesome amazing chef!!! Best personality as well!!! Great for small business affairs and classy for black tie events! Again best catering available with reasonable prices!!!
Chef Nirva was nothing short of amazing. The food was delicious, well prepared and the aroma of the food was amazing. She was professional the entire time and friendly. She arrived on time and the food was ready on time.. I would recommend her and use her again.
Wow!!! What a great company. All of the guys are very polite and willing to go above and beyond to make you happy. Chef will work within a budget and accommodate requests! The food is outstanding!!! Tomatoe and cheese sandwiches (And yes I know, tomato and cheese sandwich???) To die for!!!! All the ingredients are fresh, local and top quality. Cant say enough about them. Will be using them again in June for a anniversary party... (can't wait!) Hats off to the entire staff!!
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!
Brett is an amazing chef and a likable person! Besides great tasting food, he also presents the food in a beautiful manner. I totally recommend him. 5 stars.
Absolutely wonderful! Communication was great and accommodations for our vegan guests was incredible! Would absolutely recommend for private chef services!
