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.

Great experience! Chief Alice was professional, very accommodating and helped make our surprise Birthday Party Cooking Class a fun and memorable experience. Thai menu was a great choice and so was choosing Chief Alice.

Jenny coordinated and organized a personal cooking class for my friends and I for a Private Bachelorette Party. This was everything we expected and more. The customer service, lessons and attention to detail was priceless and to top it all off, the food was delicious. Her willingness to accommodate our constant change was much appreciated and made the entire process easy. I definitely recommend Chef Jenny for any occasion.

Catherine is an amazing personal chef. She is punctual and professional. She prepared exquisite healthy and nutritious meals that allowed me to jumpstart my metabolism. I have lost a total of 65lbs since I started working with Chef Cat! If you want a first class personal chef who can prepare Vegan, Vegetarian, Paleo, Pescetarian, or regular meals....then Chef Cat is the correct choice. Oh, by the way, if you want a great tasting desert on your "cheat day", she is also an amazing pastry chef😋!

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!

For years I dreamed of a cooking class that taught you how to cook not how to follow a recipe. Chef Ana’s teaching was creative and has opened my mind to creative cooking. It was also a lot of fun!

Jay Minzer has been my go-to caterer and culinary adviser for two decades. I have been to his public cooking classes, including one alongside Chef Paul Prudhomme; and he has been in my home for both private cooking lessons and formal dinner parties too many times to count. Jay has even catered my kids' birthday parties every few years, from ages 5 to 20. Jay is reliable, always ready with a grin and a joke, and will put a menu together that will fit the occasion to a tee.

Katherine did an outstanding job for us. She helped with suggestions for the menu, selected exceptionally fresh and high quality ingredients, came prepared and ready to make our evening a wonderful success. All the dishes came out with beautiful presentations and were delicious. Katherine was so pleasant, all our guests loved her and were planning on using her services for future events. She really made our little dinner party a memorable evening. I will also use her again and would like to take private cooking classes from her also.

My experience with AJ went fantastically. He was readily available to speak and offer tips to plan and make the night go off perfectly. We had very high expectations when we hired AJ and he exceeded them. We hired him to do an in-home cooking class for me and my wife to celebrate my wife's birthday. His experience and professionalism was apparent in every aspect. The experience was fantastic and the food was even better. AJ walked us through and showed us the proper technique and explained what and how each course was made. After the preparation, AJ plated the food the way they would at any fantastic restaurant and served us the food we had made. I would highly recommend him - and already have to many close friends. Would definitely call him again when the situation arises.

I used chef Tracy of summer rain cafe for a brunch I had the day after my daughters wedding. From the menu she created to fit my budget, to the presentation of the food everything was outstanding. Everything she made was homemade. I will definetly use chef Tracy at my next event and I highly recommend Tracy and summer rain cafe.

About

As a professional chef at the executive level, my work stands out from most catering services in terms of quality, consistency and precision. Operating 4 commercial kitchens, one banquet, one three meal restaurant, room service and pool grill kitchen enables me to effectively manage time and delegate tasks to complete the workload on time all the time and with a very high standard. This translates well into the personal chef services I provide in that I have the knowledge and experience to complete your event in a manner that will exceed your expectations within your budget and timeframe.
