Reviews for Miami Beach personal chefs
Latisha N.
Chef Megan was amazing. I wanted to treat my brother and myself for our birthdays so I figured hiring a personal chef would be perfect. Needless to say it was the best part of out trip to Miami. Chef Megan's prices are reasonable, her personality was great, and the food was to die for you. When I vacation in Miami again, I'm definitely hiring her again.

I hired Chef Dan to prepare a meal for us while we were on vacation in Miami celebrating my husband's 50th birthday! We had a small (very limited) kitchen in our suite and Chef Dan said he would make it work. He communicated promptly and ensured a smooth process from start to finish! Once he arrived we enjoyed speaking with Chef Dan and watching him prepare and cook the meal. It was like a personal cooking lesson as well:). My husband couldn't thank me enough for hiring Chef Dan!

Tania was excellent to work with. Great communication and response times. She made a delicious Mediterranean catered dinner that was delivered for a bachelorette party of 8. Plenty of food and clear directions for garnishes and reheating. She made accommodations for the vegetarian in the group which was excellent. Would recommend her to anyone looking for a personal chef for any private event. Thanks again Tania for your excellent service!
