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.
This is my first experience taking cooking classes and it has been fantastic. I am finally enjoying cooking healthy without having to sacrifice flavor. Sue has walked me through the process with graceful patience and has made this experience so much fun. I'm glad I finally decided to do this, also very grateful Thumbtack helped me make this search process an easy one. I just relocated and it was scary not having relatives or friends to guide me.
Lori catered a party for me and everything was absolutely perfect--- i love to cook but she was the star
Yummy food, Chef Wally was awesome!
What an amazing experience we had with purple door! Todd and his wife are an incredible duo. We found them through thumbtack and requested they do a southern-style appetizer menu. They actually came to my house and did a quick tasting for me. The party was 130 people. The food was self-serve on a long table. We set up the presentation because we wanted to and they guided us as to the types of trays they needed for each part of the meal. The meal included mini chicken and waffles, corn fritters, macaroni and cheese, bbq pulled pork sliders and shrimp and grits. Our guests raved about the food all night and for days after the party. They are truly talented cooks. Not only was the food amazing- but the table always had hot food on it. The food trays were constantly replenished. Purple Door really knows what they're doing. Service is top notch. And food was so tasty! The crowd we served is a very picky one and they had nothing but compliments for Purple Door. I am certain they will get repeat business after this party. Thank you for everything, Purple Door!
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!!
Chef Alaine and Sarah were unbelievable! Food outstanding, professional and even gave us some great cooking tips throughout the night. Clean up amazing! They were amazing!
My son had the opportunity to cook with Chef Deb. What an experience. He was so focused and loved it. What a great experience. If your child is interested in this they would love it. The next day we bought a pasta maker. We are looking to do it again.
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!
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!
Jose is worth the hire. He can definitely cook with a "KEEN EYE" for food....
Chef Shelly is amazing! I consulted with her to develop an in home diet for me. She came to my house & cooked lunches & dinners for me & my family for 8 weeks & I lost 20lbs. We were introduced at a private party she catered & I decided to use her for a birthday party I was hosting. Her cuisine is delicious & she is a perfectionist so she goes that extra mile in making the food not only taste good but it is also beautifully presented. I've trusted her as my go-to on numerous events. I would highly recommend her & will continue to use her invaluable service.
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!
Danny Bravo and Dianna were great. They were extremely helpful without being asked. They stuck that perfect balance with the guests between taking care of them and not crowding them. Needless to say we were quite pleased with them.
I am a classically trained and ServSafe certified professional chef. I have over 13 years of experience in hotel and restaurant industry.
I'm an excellent house cleaner and I'm also a chef. Eat well and live clean. You won't regret having me around. I'll even live in. Thank you and enjoy 24/7. Cookie.
I make dishes and cakes that are delicious to the eye as well as to your taste buds.
I'm a passionate chef whose purpose in life is to feed people with nutritious, healthy, and colorful food. The main focus of my cooking is creative dishes of vegetables and whole grains. I show customers different ways to have great meals without compromising flavor. I will take care of food shopping and cooking of course! I can work three days a week and leave prepared food for the other two days.
As a professional chef at the executive level, my work stands out from most catering services in terms of quality, consistency and precision. Operating 4 commercial kitchens, one banquet, one three meal restaurant, room service and pool grill kitchen enables me to effectively manage time and delegate tasks to complete the workload on time all the time and with a very high standard. This translates well into the personal chef services I provide in that I have the knowledge and experience to complete your event in a manner that will exceed your expectations within your budget and timeframe.
A healthy, home-made, bistro real food will be made, thinking about the person who loves to eat grown and healthy food. If they don't have time here is Real Food.
I can cook Italian and Mediterranean dishes. Meatballs of all kinds are my specialty. I am willing to please the customer!
