Chef Brown came over to my home to prepare a meal for 12 this past weekend. Not only is he an excellent chef but he and his staff are such a pleasure to have in your home. Everything was excellent: four appetizers, main plait and the desert was to die for. My guests were in awe of such experience and it truly was a hit. It was such a luxurious afternoon and not only did Dameon prep everything beautifully but they cleaned every single dish and left left overs for us! I mean, does it get any better? The price is fair, the service impeccable and you should absolutely hire these guys if you want a first class meal and service. TWO THUMBS WAY UP!

Vivian has a true passion for preparing meals..She does not have one culture focus, but is versed in many. And although an "Artist" in every way, she loves working closely with us. She had done enough "Prep" work, to make the process in our Kitchen go very smoothly. Meal served on time, right temperature, and a blending of the outstanding flavours made it very memorable. Can't wait for the next presentation. Also, Just "down to Earth"..A real person!.

Paul of PJ's BBQ makes some of the best pulled pork I've ever had. When combined with his home made sauce it's a meal that cannot be beaten by any other bbq group in town!

Hello, we have had the pleasure of working with Sarah. Sarah has a deep knowledge of nutrition and preparing healthy food choices. She asked us about what flavor profiles we enjoyed the most, then based on our likes Sarah would create a weekly menu. She would email us the weeks menu and double check if any changes are needed. In our case Sarah would shop for the food, the come to our home and prepare meals for the week that were ready to heat & eat. The food quality is excellent and tasty. With the bonus it helped us lose the weight we were trying to lose. It also eliminated the question: what do you want for dinner? Sarah enjoys cooking and it shows. I highly recommend Sarah to anyone who wants high quality nutritional foods that taste great.

Nancy's cooking is amazing. She is creative and will adjust recipes to suit your dietary needs. She prepared meals for my family during a time we were too busy to shop and cook, and there was such variety and freshness, it was hard to go back to reality! She is fun to work with on menus, and the perfect solution to your entertaining needs, too. No party without Nancy Gordon Fine Catering! We were sorry to see her move to Florida, but happy to know she will be back in the biz down there. The best!!

HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Not only is the food fresh, healthy and tasty, but it's delivered right to my house. They ensure all my individual dietary requests are met. Above the Grain goes ABOVE AND BEYOND! Meals are affordable, compared to gas to the store, time to make each meal and I now have more time to spend with my family, or for work on days requiring long hours. The owner is fantastic to work with too. She is always positive, professional and meals are there rain or shine! I have felt more energized, healthy and at the weight I need to be for my personal goals, while never feeling hungry.... They feed ya!

Oprah is truly talented. She is a phenomenal chef and impressed me with the first bite of a three-course meal. We would use her again in a heartbeat. She helped me pull off a surprise Birthday/Valentine's dinner for my fiancé. She had all the tools and ingredients for a meal at a 5-star restaurant but it was at our home. She served us, cooked for us, and cleaned up the entire kitchen for us. The kitchen was cleaner after the meal then it was when she started cooking! She was sweet, and kind hearted. I cannot wait to have her over for a dinner party and share her talents with others!

Me Gusta Gustavo showed on time, was very professional, very accommodating even for my somewhat picky guests. His food was so delicious even the pickiest tried it all and loved it all. He even did the dishes. So much food great value more reasonable than most might think for a personal chef to come to your home and cook for you. He even does meal planning even for the strictest diet regimes. I would hire him again without question!!!

Kaitlynd has been great to work with! After providing a menu the prior week from which we pick and choose our meals, she cooks and drops off a weeks worth of dinner meals each Monday. She is very attuned to our needs as a family, and has been careful about accounting for allergies and food preferences; she has been accommodating us with a Mediterranean diet. Everything she makes is not only nutritious and healthy, but delicious as well. I have been so impressed with her work ethic and attention to detail, as well as her incredible ability as a chef.
