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
We Knew that Chef Tim would be a perfect fit for us from ours first meeting, he arrived at our home ant took notes as we discussed the style of food. On the day of our wedding he came prepared and organized and most importantly came with a great attitude. He was accompanied with a great staff that work together. Each meal was well prepared, served and delicious. Every one worked clean and efficient manner. They keep the kitchen nice and neat. We highly recommended Chef Tim and team as a private Chef, we were able to fully enjoy yhe company of our guest with no stress.
The Chef was exceptional and her team very accommodating and friendly . The food was excellent and service superb ..no one wanted to leave our party ...it was simply great !!! Every detail was thought out and planning was painless . I would hire S & L again in a heart beat and many of my guests have asked for their phone number . I do not think they could have improved on a thing , except stayed and enjoyed the party !!!!
If you want a chef who is able to accommodate your business or party theme, contact Chef Laura. We contacted her for an "Evening in Paris" at Jazzercise of Ft. Lauderdale - a surprise birthday party. Chef Laura decorated the table to the Paris theme. The guests had the best experience watching Chef Laura and her assistant prepare a variety of crepes to their specifications! And, they were so good! She brings everything, sets up before the guests arrived, and cleaned up discretely. A great experience. Debra/Jazzercise of Ft. Lauderdale.
Mr. G's Catering services were outstanding. John and his wife came early to set up the event. They surprised and exceeded our expectations with their decorations for my partner's 50th birthday party. His food was what you would expect from a Chef. It was of high quality and quantity for the price. We had more than enough food to feed our guest. His Lasagna was out of this world. Overall, myself, my partner, and all of my guess were extremely pleased from beginning to end.
We have been lucky enough to have Sue cook for us in the last few weeks! She is very good at catering to your needs and allergies, and she's an absolute pleasure to have in the house! I highly recommend her as a private chef! -Natasha J
We hired Chef Zsolt over a year ago and we couldn't be happier! He prepares fresh meals for us every week custom to our liking. He is very creative and uses lots of different flavors, and has introduced us to many new dishes. When we tell people that we have a Chef prepare our food they always ask isn't that expensive? Once we explain that Chef Zsolt does all the shopping, cooking, cleaning, and delivers it right to our door, we are actually saving money. And we are eating much healthier since we started using his service. We have told all our family and friends about him, and would highly recommend him to anyone looking to hire a professional Chef.
Kerry is an amazing pastry chef and beautiful person on the inside and out! I sent her the party invite and asked if she can match the design on the cake, add watercolor effect and nautical elements for my sister's baby shower. She matched the cake design perfectly and added her personal touch as well. It was tastefully done and came out elegant and way beyond my expectations! The cake was not only beautiful but also so tasty! Everyone were impressed and now two weeks later we still talk about it. Kerry was also professional and punctual. She kept communicating on the progress, asking questions, keeping me informed and delivered on time. Perfection!
Food was of the highest quality. Impeccable service delivered in a timely and efficient manner. Chef Joseph demonstrated professionalism and flexibility. I will definitely use Sub Carib for future events and would recommend them highly. Thank you Chef Joseph for making my daughter's graduation party memorable!
Food was delicious. I've hired a few private chefs in the past, and he is someone I would use again.
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!
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.
As a Chef my self I have to say that the food prepared by First Bute Catering was top quality and fresh products.

I was hosting an International conference for families. I found Chef Elouaze we traded emails and a few phone calls. From the moment I was introduced to her I felt a connection. She is warm, easy to work with, and understood what I wanted. She stayed in contact with me before and after the event to make sure we were satisfied. I really appreciate the fantastic customer service with Chef Elouaze. The food was amazing as well and the families all seem to love it. I was over a 1,000 miles away when I planned the catering so there was a lot of pressure to have faith in the person catering. Chef Elouaze went above and beyond, she truly cares about you and her business!
Very professional, and meal prepared was devine.
