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!

WOW, and more wow. I cant say enough great things about Chef Danny and the meals he prepared for us. We hired him to cater our rehearsal dinner and brunch for our wedding and all our attendees were RAVING about the food. The upscale asian meal was even better than Mr Chow and the southern brunch was SO YUMMY. (We happily ate the leftover fried chicken and biscuits the next day). Even better, Chef Danny was a delight to have around a joy to spend time with. Would DEFINITELY hire again (and hopefully will) - hes a real gem!!!

I love taking cooking classes and attend various classes at least once month. Naturally I find a lot of classes online and make my decisions based on reviews. I normally attend large group sessions (10+) and have always enjoyed the experience. I recently found Rosemary and Thyme online and at first I was sceptical because the class was at a private home and restricted to 7 people. I have to say this was the best decisIon I made and enjoyed every moment with Jeff. The difference with this class is with a smaller group we all had the opportunity to try out techniques and skills taught by Jeff. We had an incredible experience preparing, cooking and having fun with Jeff and I am already planning future sessions. The best take away I got was not the food or recipes but the tips and tricks Jeff shared with us all to prepare meals not only more efficiently but also how to make it less of a chore and more fun to be in the kitchen....

The entire experience, from planning to execution was impeccable. Our event included 200 guests, a full bar, passed hors d'oeuvres, salad, plated meals and a dessert bar. The food was outstanding, the staff was lovely and our evening was stellar. I highly recommend The Dancing Palate for any size event.

We had service for a wedding reception in Hollywood FL. I was pleased with Tim's willingness to serve my guest promptly. My guest enjoyed the food and that was the most important to me. Upon seeing the dishes we had prepared for us I did feel the cost was too much. However, I had accepted the proposal and was willing to adhere to my agreement without discussion. In future, if you ask your hostess/host a question and you receive an answer, don't ask numerous times. I was asked for the flatware and dishes about 4 times, it drove me crazy!

We have used Chef Zsolt’s services several times already. Chef Zsolt is a courteous, trustworthy, handsome young man, whom all our guests liked immediately. The last four years he prepared all the food for our December Holiday celebrations. On each occasion we invited 40—50 people, so he served the main courses in buffet style, but he also prepared several plates full of delicious hot and cold hors d’oeuvres, each time different ones. The buffet consisted of different types of international and exotic dishes, there was something for everyone’s taste and they were all delicious. Best of all we did not have to do anything at all. He purchased all the necessary items, prepared all the food in my kitchen and cleaned up everything afterworlds. Because of the success of these parties we also asked Chef Zsolt to prepare weekly lunches or dinners when we had several friends visiting us at the same time. This way we were able to have a relaxed lunch at home or after a long outing to have a quiet dinner, without worrying about going to a restaurant. He prepared several packages for each day. Each package included a full course meal for everyone. All we had to do is warm it up in the microwave or in the oven and enjoy it. These prepared meals were real gourmet foods, better than what you can get in most restaurants. My husband and I are very pleased with Chef Zsolt’s services and we highly recommend him.

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 was extremely personable and efficient. I had exactly what I wanted on the menu, along with instructing us as he prepared our food. This was experiential perfection. Food was great, presentation and even clean up. He went above and beyond to be informative, curtious and entertaining (including picking up my guitar at the end and playing us a couple songs, which was an unexpected treat). I will recommend him to anyone,

Mauricio did a special dinner for my husband and I and we couldn't have been more impressed and satisfied with his work and creativity! He spent time creating a menu to fit our taste and it was amazing! The freshness and quality in the food was outstanding and the attention he paid to detail was impeccable. We will use Mauricio forever now! He cleaned up after the meal and there aren't enough words to describe how nice this experience was.

Sajay's Catering went beyond my expectations. The food was delicious. The professionalism was superb. He definitely catered my likes and wants in that meal. I appreciate the immediate responses and communication; in understanding that I'm dieting and a very picky eater. I didn't expect such a delightful meal. However, I enjoyed every bite! I recommend Sajay's Catering to anyone that enjoys great food.

Chef Wolinsky is exceptionally knowledgeable when it comes to gardening and preparing meals from the garden to your table. His recipes are healthy and delicious. I like that he will answer any question I might have, and gives helpful tips to guide me in growing a successful garden. He also offers high quality supplies at a fair price.

I have utilized the Katerer for 3 events and they did amazing. They prepared, delivered, and distributed the food. The first event was a birthday for a party of 8 and we had requested a special menu of artichoke salmon, ceviche, guacamole, and a banana cream pie. It was truly a delight and everyone was impressed. I then held a corporate event for my company on a yacht and they prepared an amazing boat menu that fed 8-10 people. The Katerer did such a good job on the boat menu that we brought them back a second time to cater a second corporate event held on our yacht. They even brought and prepared the menu to our dock behind Montys on South Pointe. Even though they did volunteer to clean up we opted out but it was the best guacamole, ceviche, pigs in a blanket, grilled shrimp, and bacon wrapped dates any of us had ever had. I am so thankful to have finally found a reliable and top of the line catering service. I will also be utilizing them for a couple of intimate family gatherings I have lined up this summer.

We have engaged Cordon Bleu Catering for two New Year's Eve events, and one Brunch. The principals of Cordon Bleu are focused, flexible, to meet individual event needs, and highly professional with service, presentation, and accessories to presentation. We have just completed our second New Year's Eve event with Cordon Bleu preparing and serving for 115 people. From appetizers to dinner and a full breakfast, food, presentation, and service was nothing less than perfect.
