Maurice was awesome. He showed up right on time and surprised my fiancee with a Valentine's dinner prepared for her at our home. He took care of everything including the wine which perfectly complimented the entree. The food was excellent!! He is very personable including relating to our 12-year old. I would highly recommend Maurice for any personal chef service and would expect his catering to be just as good for larger groups. We will definitely be using him again in the future. My fiancee was even asking what it would take to have him cook every night for us.

Our company had the pleasure of using Hildago for our business retreat. Honestly it was a very heartfelt experience to have someone so committed to service and being so dependable. Dinner was great with the highlight being the seafood paella, Lobster and steak night which everyone loved!!!! The breakfasts were delicious and we loved having them here. We used them for along period so we were able to bond while cooking! Would definitely recommend Hildago! High standards and definitely delivers❤️

I was looking for a chef to work with on an ongoing basis, to provide whole food, organic meals for my family. Chef Dameon has exceeded every point on my wish list. I was impressed initially speaking with him over the phone, it was easy to sense his passion for cooking. Chef Dameon personifies the saying how you do anything is how you do everything. Arriving not on time but early, he treated my kitchen with respect and professionalism. Working cleanly and efficiently, he produces meals on caliber with any elite 5 star restaurant. Chef Dameon is a blessing to our family, as a busy working mom running her own business with little time to cook, he has brought life back to my kitchen. Thank you Chef!!

Chef Brown and his staff were very professional. He followed up with us regarding my original order, confirmed my several changes and suggested better pairings for the meals. The day of the event the staff was effective and efficient, yet nearly invisible. Everyone spoke so highly of Chef Brown and the food that I actually introduced him at the event and there were several requests for his services. The presentation of the food courses were like artwork and the taste was absolutely beyond our expectations. In the end, the costs was definitely justified by the service and quality of food. I already have him booked for my next event.

I was requesting quotes for my sons 5th grade banquet IN VERY SHORT NOTICE. Out of 50, I CHOSE BLESS MY SOUL FOOD CATERING & MORE!!!!! I needed to cater to 250+ guests. The vendors I had lined up for this event would not have been able to beat the cost, the timing, accommodating such a crowd on such short notice...NOR do it effortlessly with quality, FLAVOR and efficiency the ways I was catered to by THIS company. Immediately they were on my phone offering suggestions, and arranging to meet to HELP plan the menu as well offer any additional hand in any and every way for this event. Their time was very precious and they offered so much they didn't have to (that was so personal and comforting). On the day of the banquet, they were very much prepared, on time, organized, well dressed, extremely professional and SKILLED to the MAX! The dishes were AMAZING! Hot, fresh, flavorful, well made and well presented!!! Everything was cooked to perfection and so much more than I ever expected!! QUALITY! QUALITY! QUALITY! And can I say QUALITY! This catering company BEATS ALL I have ever seen, tasted, experienced and known!! From BBQ to fine dining THEY LITERALLY DO IT ALL AND DO IT VERY VERY WELL!!!!! THEY ARE AWESOME AND ACCOMMODATE ANY AND EVERY EVENT TYPE AND VENUE!!! I've been in the event world in Orlando for 15 years and my Father for 40! WE WERE BOTH VERY IMPRESSED AND BLESSED TO HAVE FOUND THEM!!! By far THE MOST efficient, personal, accommodating, cost effective, punctual, reasonable and DELICIOUS ((SOOOO DELICIOUS)) I enjoyed the company of these fine ladies and appreciated the extra hand. The LOVE for what this company does is defined in their great service, THE FLAVOR, THE QUALITY, the presentation and above all BEING ONE OF A KIND!!! NOT MANY CATERING COMPANIES CAN SAY THAT -- BUT THIS ONE CAN AND OWNS IT!!!! Any type of food dishes, ANY TYPE OF GATHERING.... ANY NUMBER OF GUESTS, from a small crowd (even a dinner for 2) to 300 people/PLUS...THIS COMPANY DEFIES ALL I HAVE EVER SEEN!!!! I AM SO GRATEFUL AND HONORED TO HAVE THEM AS A PERMANENT "GO-TO" VENDOR!!!! I RECOMMEND THEM FOR ANY AND ALL OCCASIONS!!! WHEN I SAY THEY COOK IT ALL--THEY DO IT ALL---THEY MAKE IT ALL SO PERSONAL--- THE FOOD IS EVERYTHING!!!!!!!!! 100% X 100% SATISFIED!!!! I WILL BE PROMOTING THEM TO EVERYONE I KNOW AND EVERYONE I DON'T KNOW! WATCH OUT CATERING WORLD, THIS COMPANY IS THE REAL DEAL AND TOP NOTCH!!!!! THEIR PRICES ARE OUTSTANDING AND UNBEATABLE! THEIR DISHES ARE DIVINE AND HOMEMADE! THEIR SERVICE IS ONE OF A KIND! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!

I was throwing a Bowties & Cardigans 30th Birthday party for my husband and Bless My Soul Food Catering & More truly made the experience a night to remember. It was a grown folk house party with music/games/etc. so we didn't want anything too formal like a sit down dinner party. I told Chef Nae some of my husbands favorites & the theme and she blew our minds. He loves lasagna but that's not a dish for this type of party. She made a Lasagna Bake with bowtie noodles and several other elegant appetizer-style foods. She also made his favorite, her famous, Red Velvet Cheesecake. The layout was elegant with the 2-tier Red Velvet Cheesecake in the middle. I highly recommend Bless My Soul Food Catering & More for ALL of your dining and catering needs. I also use her personal chef services as I'm a super busy entrpreneur, wife, mom, etc. My family loves EVERY meal. YOU SHOULD BOOK BLESS MY SOUL FOOD CATERING & MORE TODAY!

The food was awesome and Antoinae was very professional. I expected her to just drop off the food but she actually came and served the food to our kids before the prayer breakfast!!! We will definitely use her services again.

Chef spoiled my mom and I with dinner one evening. He cooked my favorite dish which is salmon, vegetables and red potatoes. The Salmon was of course fresh and seasoned to perfection. Major Yum! Chef Brent has a confidence that made me feel like my taste buds were in good hands and he didn't disappoint. I actually asked him if I could take a class, so I am happy to hear he is launching this effort. Great chef, great food!

The experience with Chef Derek E was nothing short of excellent. To begin with, I simply told him I just wanted to do better at meal prepping at eating better meals, but he did that and so much more. Not only did I add more than 10 healthy meals to my menu, but he showed me how to shop for food while spending less money, how to clean and cut fruits and vegetables, and how to save time and money storing food. Chef Derek came in and did a total analysis of my kitchen and was very tactful informing me of ways to abandon old habits and develop new processes. I consider myself a novice in the kitchen anyway, but after this experience, I am much more confident and something like an expert. LOL. Another great thing was there is much more space in my refrigerator and freezer. Lastly, he help organize my spices and the way I utilize dishes and food storage items. Without a doubt, a great investment to save you hundreds and possibly thousands annually.

Chef Derek came to our home to do a cooking lesson for my teenage nephew and me. He taught us about nutrition and food sanitation/safety (especially good for young learners), then moved to knife skills, and we finished by making the best Alfredo dish I've ever had! Chef Derek was knowledgeable, professional, and fun! We had a great time while learning a variety of skills and techniques, then had an amazing meal when it was all over. We will be calling him again!

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!

D. Strong provided a wonderful meal for our family. Plus he was a pleasure to work with. He cares about his customers and providing them with a quality product and service. I recommend him highly to anyone looking for a caterer to cook and deliver a pleasant meal to their family. We enjoyed his grilled chicken, mashed potatoes, mixed vegetables, delicious corn bread (I'd love some right now) and salad with two different dressings. He also baked a wonderful chocolate birthday cake with chocolate icing for my husband, which we all enjoyed. Thank you, D. You helped make our birthday dinner a great success!

Craig was very knowledgeable and experienced in cooking. He shared a lot of helpful tips for a novice cook, covering a variety of topics and made gourmet meals easy and non-intimidating to someone without a lot of cooking experience.
