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!
Our thanksgiving dinner was delivered punctually the directions were simple and the food was prepared to perfection Thank you so much
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....
Two days ago, we had a small wedding of 30 people for my daughter and our experience with The Dancing Palate was excellent. Because it was a beach wedding, we had to bring everything in ourselves. The chef, Chef Paul, is truly a professional and made the process seamless. We hired an event planner through him, Claudia of Passionate Events, and she coordinated EVERYTHING -- the rentals, the cake, the decorations --- and on the day of the event, she set everything up, sat down with all of us and oversaw the whole timeline as well as make the announcements as to the first dance, etc. The food was prepared at the event and was delicious, the cake was beautifully designed and delicious, also. There was one glitch with the cake design due to a miscommunication and Chef Paul ran out and came back and fixed it on the spot! They completely cleaned up afterwards. The place was spotless. If you want a "worry-free" event, hire Chef Paul and Claudia!
I recently hired Chef Traci for a small dinner party. He was professional, courteous and prompt. Every course he prepared and served was spectacular. I mean out of this world GOOD! It was well worth the cost to be able to have a gourmet meal prepared and served in my home. My guest were delighted and we all enjoyed a lovely evening. I was so impressed with the food and service that I had Chef Traci come back last week when my daughter was visiting from NYC. He prepared a fabulous vegetarian meal for my very strict vegetarian daughter and our friends. Everyone was pleased! Chef Traci is a talented chef, but he also has a great sense of humor and is a joy to have in your home making delicious, healthy meals at affordable prices. I highly recommend this amazing Chef!!!
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!
Lori catered a three day event for us. Everyone was pleased with the food. All meals were delivered on time and her staff was very helpful. We highly recommend Lori.
Was all around excellent - the food was delicious, their consultations before the event were professional and helpful, and the day-of service was very impressive and outstanding. Also the staff was very professional and helpful. Bella contributed to my special birthday celebration being a very memorable one.
He did a great job preparing all of the food, setting up, etc. The food was delicious and very creative with a wonderful presentation. I would highly recommend him for any event. I can't wait to use his services again!
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,
Wally was professional and conscientious of making my son's Eagle Scout award ceremony very special and memorable and he accomplished just that. Everyone enjoyed the prepared food and many returned for seconds.
5 stars are not enough to rate Jimmy Dean (10,20 30 maybe). Quite honestly one of the best decisions I have made. We hired him to provide some food and prepare a meal at a vacation home. There is always that uncertainty when hiring someone through the internet just based on a hunch and some reviews- well this is an honest, first hand account. Everything about Jimmy Dean is FIRST RATE. He is a magician with food, everything was delicious and as healthy as we wanted it to be and plenty to enjoy for extra meals. He was extremely professional, yet friendly and responsive and very very reliable. The value of his food/services was exceptional. I would plan another trip just to use Jimmy Dean again. Trust me he does not disappoint!!!
I hired Robyn and her Palate Party crew to cater at my wedding in May and I could not have been more pleased with their food, overall display, and service. Throughout the whole planning period, Robyn was very flexible and listened to what we wanted as a couple. She worked within our budget and always had delicious, creative ideas for the meal! I would recommend her to ANYONE. Robyn was slaving away in her food truck all day making our wedding food and she even came out to greet the guests personally and refill their wine glasses! Overall, Robyn is a wonderful person and caterer!
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.
The primary ingredient in any recipe is LOVE !!! Mike LOVES to cook,He LOVES to provide people with nutritional, delicious meals.Having a Caring, Attentive,Loving person preparing your meal is a guaranteed Success.
Wendy has cooked quite a few meals for my husband and I. 2 things are VERY evident - every thing is PERFECTLY SEASONED... like weirdly perfect (how can that happen? I've been to restaurants and caterers and etc.) - and 2 - she asks you what you like and don't like (and perhaps that's why number 1 works so well.. LOL
wonderful, excellent cuisine, extremely thoughtful, great meal, and an amazing clean up. Thank you so much
Orangel came to our home on New Years Eve and provided personal Chef services to myself and my wife. He prepared and cooked a gourmet meal as we watched. He plated and served and as we enjoyed eating, he quietly cleaned all the pots and pans. The meal was excellent.
Chef Christophe was fantastic! The cassoulet he prepared for our dinner party was delicious. He even helped pick out the wine.
Very professional, and meal prepared was devine.
