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.
Rossana is an ultimate professional. She clearly has a passion and a talent for baking, which shows in her fabulous creations!
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!
Very professional and awesome service! I've received cooking lessons as well as had a baby shower catered and both events went very well. Yummy food and efficient service, what more could you ask for?! Thanks Chef Mika and I look forward to working with you in the future!
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.
We took a bread baking class with Ana and had a wonderful time. She taught us a lot but beyond that, you can tell that she does this because she absolutely loves it. From bringing her grandmothers recipes to encorporating all of our favorite ingredients, she made the experience fun as well as productive. She has given us tips and pointers before and after the class as well and truly cares about her clients. A+ for sure. We can't wait to take our next class and I've recommended her to everyone I know that loves to cook.
The best tasting cakes and gorgeous decor ever!!! Reasonable prices and quick delivery. Will recommend to my friends and family since I have used her several times!!!
Nicholas was a great teacher and very flexible with scheduling. The day of my lesson he had everything ready to go and prepared some interesting recipes based on my requests. Nicholas showed me how to make a few sauces from scratch. He also showed me how to use chicken in three different and delicious preparations. We used the skin to make chips, the meat to make a scrumptious stir fry and the bones to make a stock. In addition, he showed me how to make a pork belly dish in the oven because I mentioned how much I loved bacon. I think the mark of a good teacher is when the pupil is able to reproduce what they have been taught. I was definitely able to reproduce Nicholas' stir fry dish, using the tricks he'd shown me to create a meal my family enjoyed...even the picky eaters. It was a wonderful experience.
I tried several diets and detoxes, but nothing lasted and I always ended up reverting to my old ways as far as eating goes. Kristen coached me on how to prepare foods I like , but modified for my health, and without sacrificing taste or flavor. Now I can shop and choose foods without spending hours in the grocery store aisles reading labels; she cut to the chase and taught me just to eat whole and clean. She prepared foods for me that were in my comfort zone, and introduced me to new foods with amazing benefits and new flavors. I see the difference in how I feel and it's an added bonus when she randomly tries a new recipe or surprised me with her homemade chocolates.
Laura was delightful!!! Very flexible to work with and was great with teaching and encouraging my 12 and 14 year old boys on cooking lessons and making it fun for them. It was like having my mom in the kitchen with us, very relaxed and the food was absolutely delicious!
Ana was a pleasure to work with on all levels. She is very professional, punctual, flexible and definitely knows her stuff! Her cooking lessons were very well planned, informative and fun! I highly recommend her.
MyKosherEssence is the most passionate team when it comes to being a Kosher Chefs. I have utilized their services for numerous years and all I can say is that great food equals return customers. Aside from the quality of the dishes, the portions are exceptional and their schedule on delivery has never slipped. In fact, on most occasions they arrive 15 mins early to the major events I booked through them. This level of professionalism is what sets MyKosherEssence apart from the market. Trust me, I have had many nightmare stories of catering services gone wrong. Also, expanded their service offerings to include Private Cooking Lessons, which of course i was thrilled to hear! Overall, I rate MyKosherEssence a 15 out of 10! They also have a fabulous wedding planner who made everything seamless
