After having my initial event date change, I was worried about hiring a caterer on this site. :/ Actually, our original caterer canceled on us at the last minute, so we gave thumbtack a shot anyway. Chef Jose was quick to reply, and gave us the lowest quote out of the 4 we received. I told him about the bind we were in, and he ultimately told me that that they could make it happen. Chef Jose was easy to talk to and created a list of all of our preferred menu options. Surprisingly enough, he even took note of our favorite restaurants in the area, which I personally think was quite a touch of class. The following morning, Chef Brian called me to inform he had produced 3 menus based on Jose's notes, which appeared in my inbox to discuss. I was beyond amazed as Chef Brian scheduled a tasting at my request the following evening. My son and 2 of his friends, along with my wife and I, arrived to Chef Jose's office and were so impressed as soon as we walked in. The kitchen was all stainless steel, immaculately sanitized, and the tasting area was all set. Chef Brian arranged dish after dish, while Chef Jose described each and gave us a run down of how they would be executed at our event. They even offered us wine and champagne, as well as plenty of treats and items they had been working on earlier in the day. We literally felt like we were recording for a cooking show as both chefs featured some amazing French cheeses and their eclectic collection of different preserves! Oh, and the maple bacon popcorn!!! Oh, em gee...We were totally blown away, and felt so lucky to have our original caterer cancel on us for a more lucrative event. These guys rock!!! Totally seems like this team treats their work like fun as they are so passionate with their menu ideas, personable with their manners, and affable with their warmth for their clients. After how they took care of us, I couldn't help but to write such a thorough review. I highly recommend Chefs Jose & Brian from Dade County Food Group, and will insist that my friends have their functions catered by them, too.
Chef Dan and his staff were nothing short of amazing! I enlisted his services to surprise my fiancé, and her guests, with a catered dinner at her Bachelorette Getaway Weekend. From the planing stages to execution Dan was helpful, professional, and immensely accommodating. He tailored an exquisite menu to my finance's eclectic palate, and followed through with exceptional execution, creating dishes that tasted even better than they sounded. Moreover Chef Dan accompanied his masterful cuisine with lovely keepsakes. He provided each guest with a beautiful take-home menu and custom wine tumblers. I received a barrage of texts raving about how wonderful the catered meal and chefs were, throughout the duration of the event, from all eight guests. When all was said and done, my fiancé expressed that the surprise dinner was her favorite part of the entire weekend. I can't recommend Chef Dan enough. Any event you book him for will be well worth the expense, which was extremely reasonable considering the amazing five star experience Chef Dan provided.
I was tasked with planning my best friend's bachelorette weekend in Ft. Lauderdale. This meant I had to account for the dietary restrictions of 18 girls: from 2 people with Celiac disease to fish allergies to vegetarians, it was Chef Jeff to the rescue. Chef Jeff prepared a taco bar for us night 1, brought us delicious salads with a broad array of yummy sandwiches day 2 and came over day 3 to prepare omelettes for a made to order style breakfast. Everything was amazing and Chef Jeff was a pro. He consulted with me constantly to ask informed questions about our Celiac girls and thought of innovative solutions to give them something delicious: like the cauliflower tortillas he made night 1. The girls raved about the food and Chef Jeff all weekend. Not only that, Chef Jeff was fun, professional and amazing to work with. He was super flexible and willing to work with me as I had to stick to a budget. Thanks so much Chef Jeff, you made our weekend unforgettable!!!
My name is Lucero you can contact me for a direct reference @ firstname.lastname@example.org. I am a lawyer by profession and I must admit I am VERY picky. My wedding was on April 19, 2014. I was referred to the Dancing Palate via Thumbtack. The Dancing Palate was AMAZING. Their quality of service and cuisine is unmatched. The guest loved the food. We requested the vegetable crudité, the vegetable quesadillas and the pulled pork a-top of fried plantains as appetizers and the mediterranean chicken and skirt steak as entrees. Everything was delicious and presented in a very classy manner. My wedding turned out perfect. The Chef, Paul Lobeck went out of his way to please me and my husband. His staff was incredibly professional. Their were five members of his staff present. You barely knew they were there. They offered quality service with more than affordable prices. This is a company that you should definitely consider for any occasion. Six of my guest already requested chef Lobeck's business card!!! Before signing on with the company, they offer a tasting. You tell the chef the dishes you want to try and he comes to your house and let's you try each dish. There is no commitment. The company left a great impression on me. I will definitely use their services for other occasions!
I'm on the strict Phase 2 of the Simeon hcg diet. Her food is amazing and very tastey. Worth every penny!
Let me start by saying that this was a last-minute plan that I made the day before Valentine's Day. I made a request through Thumbtack and in a very short time Chef Ricardo contacted me to confirm he was available and provided his menu and price. I called him and he went through in more detail his menu and suggestions based on our food preference. He has a lot of menu offerings by the way in varied cuisines. I could tell that he was friendly and professional just by talking to him. Meeting him in person confirmed my assumptions. He was an absolute pleasure to have in our home. He did a really fun cooking lesson with us while he was prepping the meal. He started by making fresh mango margaritas which he served at the beginning and then he showed us how to make the appetizer, entree and dessert, and we had some 'hands on' too with making crepes. He prepped our dining table and served our meal. The food was beautifully plated and most importantly it was delicious! While we ate, Chef cleaned up our kitchen and dishes. We will definitely use him again for special occasions and would highly recommend him. Thanks Chef for making this Valentines one of the most special ever!
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.
Patricia is amazing!!! She is extremely professional, accommodating, takes a lot of pride in her work and will only work with the best ingredients and deliver the very best. What I love the most is that I get to customize my diet to meet my own nutritional/ fitness goals.
I was hosting some friends at my house and decided not to cook and order catered food instead. My brother, who does a lot of catering recommended that I check on Tumbtack. I found a company around my area called First Bite lead by chef owner Jose Andrich. After talking for a bit and letting him know how many people and what kind of cuisines did he offer, which is apparently everything from fine dining to casual cooking. Well me being Cuban and from miami, I decided to opt in for the roast pork shoulder, rice and beans, yuca, and mariquitas. (Which I didn’t order he threw them in on the house) Which was great cause everyone enjoyed them. Not only did First Bite meet my expectations, it exceed them by far. Thanks to Chef Jose and crew for making my event a success. Will definitely be ordering again soon.
An exceptional class taught by an exceptional Chef! I am working on my culinary certification and had asked Chef Maury's help to polish my skills up. It took a couple of months until I could finally schedule my class (my schedule won't permit) but Chef Maury replied promptly whenever I send him a message. The class itself lasted for about 4 hours, concentrating on knife skills, stock making and basic cooking techniques. He was very keen in making sure I make the right cuts and correcting me right away. His kitchen is a standard home kitchen so you don't have to worry about being intimidated by big equipment. Whether you have a culinary background like I do or just a home cook who wants to learn more, Chef Maury is the right guy to show you the ropes. I am already looking forward to my next class!
Chef Wolinsky is exceptionally knowledgeable when it comes to gardening and preparing meals from the garden to your table. His recipes are healthy and delicious. I like that he will answer any question I might have, and gives helpful tips to guide me in growing a successful garden. He also offers high quality supplies at a fair price.
She is an awesome amazing chef!!! Best personality as well!!! Great for small business affairs and classy for black tie events! Again best catering available with reasonable prices!!!
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!
I couldn’t have asked for a better experience hiring Brett and his team for my company’s annual staff outing. Not only was the food INCREDIBLE but he and his staff made sure that, despite our last minute venue change due to weather, that everything was on time and catered perfectly for our group and our different dietary preferences. If you’re in need of someone who can get things done when time is of the essence and still enjoy great tasting food, this is a great option. Make sure you ask for seafood options!!!
My husband was out of town on a business trip for 2 weeks and I wanted to have a girls night out party which happened to be perfect as I could have the house to myself. With such little notice I didn't think I could pull off a menu ... I got a recommendation to use Chef Cannabasso and OMG... It was a blessing he did the entire menu with very elegant and delicious appetizers mostly ... The variety and presentation was outstanding , not to mention all the food was homemade. My guest were so impressed and pleased. To this day I get calls requesting him. He is energetic , polite and takes his food very seriously. I would highly recommend him. He is all that💯
