Kathy and Jeff Paradise are a full-package for the busy full-time working bride. They handle the busy details from catering to reception rentals, setup and decor in any style you desire. We opted for a sit down table service wedding reception on Saturday, May 18, 2013 for approximately 100 guests. Kathy and Jeff offer many pleasing menu choices ranging from comfort food to many items for even the most sophisticated palate. We settled on our selections and details that suited our style wedding reception. The venue we selected for our wedding reception provided very little lead time to set-up other than the morning of the wedding. This problem was easily solved by Kathy and her team who set up all the tables, chairs, and decor. This leaves the bride with nothing to worry about and allowed me to focus on getting ready for the wedding. The details were impressive. Guests enjoyed the h'orderves and happy hour while waiting for the bride and groom to arrive. The appetizer table had a beautiful presentation, and when we arrived we had our own appetizer platter ready our head table. Our guests had their choice of Lasagna with Meatballs, or Chicken Picatta. The Caesar salad was made with a delicious homemade dressing. A candy & coffee station was set up for guests to enjoy after dinner. Everything Kathy and Jeff make is from scratch and the layers of flavor in everything you taste is amazing. It is evident that cooking is something they are passionate about. Kathy has high expectations of herself and those she works with, which provides great results. Our wedding was the event everyone was talking about! We received lots of positive feedback from our guests and many inquired about having Kathy and Jeff cater their future wedding receptions. Kathy & Jeff Paradise come highly recommended for catering weddings, anniversary parties, or special events.
My husband and I invited over 9 couples. We were a total of 20 adults. I asked Gabriel to create a menu with 2 appetizers, a salad and 2 dinner entrees to choose from with 4 sides. He chose a meat and fish entree, they were amazing. Most of us tried both, I personally loved everything. He made empanadas that were gone immediately. The mahi entree had a seafood sauce on top everyone raved about the food. Gabriel was very professional and efficient. He was early, on task and ready for all the guests when they arrived. His presentation was outstanding. I was surprised chef gabe was so humble and genuine. Overall my experience was extremely positive and we have already hired him for my husband bday party in August.
Chef Mark and his staff created a wonderful dining experience for our family and friends in Naples, Florida. His professionalism was key from the beginning stages (i.e., planning theme, selecting menu, pairing wine) to the end (i.e., setting table, serving the meal, and clean-up). Chef Mark entertained our guest with an explanation/demonstration of his Sous Vide technique used to create the most spectacular filet mignon. Additionally, he ended the meal with a most delightful dessert! The sauces and flavors, coupled with overall professionalism, created a memorable evening that we will forever treasure. Thank you Chef Mark!
My husband and I were treated to a special anniversary dinner compliments of my daughter. I spoke to Chef Jay ahead of time and placed our order. He arrived on time, cooked our meal, served it, cleaned up and left. I can't say enough how delicious it all was. What a special treat. We had the eggplant rollatinit, caprese salad and stuffed flounder with crabmeat. It was like a bit of heaven on earth. I would highly recommend him and hopefully can get my girlfriends together for a cooking class with him. Thank you Chef Jay for a memorable evening.
Rebecca and I played some email tag setting things up but the extra time was well worth it as the cooking class she conducted for my folks was really fun and both learned quite a bit from Rebecca, and will likely be cooking a lot more pastries as a result. I haven't used thumbtack previously but i can say that when searching for a particular custom service in a remote location, the platform was very helpful and I am glad I found a great match in Chef Wilson.
I have enjoted Chef Greenberg's quiche's and gourmet dishes many times over many years. His creativity and artistic presentations are an added plus to the devastatingly delicious creations he consistently creates. If he had a restaurant close-by, I would have my own table !!!

With a background in small private parties, I am comfortable with everything, from a single dinner drop off to hot appetizers for a party of 65 people. The last few years, I have been teaching cooking classes and have brought this format into the home kitchen as well.
