My family and I travelled to Orlando for a Christmas vacation. Chef Maurice came each day for a week and catered to a family of 13 which included 7 adults and 6 children, age 3 to 14. He was able to prepare meals to accommodate finicky children to hungry adults. He was able to meet the demands of our daily changing schedule. Not only was he flexible, he easily meshed with the personalities of our family. This could not have been easy since we were in and out of the kitchen. The food was terrific. Breakfast was made to order as everyone tumbled out of bed to the smell of coffee and the menu of the day. Although I was offered to create a menu with the chef, I chose to tell him our likes and dislikes. Everyday was a wonderful surprise. Everything from steak dinners, grilled meats to wraps. I personally loved the meatballs. Chef Maurice created desserts, including a special birthday cake for us. The spread of appetizers for New Years Eve was spectacular! This was my 1st experience having a personal chef. His expertise, professionalism and service were outstanding. Without a doubt, he enhanced our vacation with his gourmet food. I would highly recommend his company.

Chef Brown came over to my home to prepare a meal for 12 this past weekend. Not only is he an excellent chef but he and his staff are such a pleasure to have in your home. Everything was excellent: four appetizers, main plait and the desert was to die for. My guests were in awe of such experience and it truly was a hit. It was such a luxurious afternoon and not only did Dameon prep everything beautifully but they cleaned every single dish and left left overs for us! I mean, does it get any better? The price is fair, the service impeccable and you should absolutely hire these guys if you want a first class meal and service. TWO THUMBS WAY UP!

I have tried several meal services and found the food not up to my standard for taste or freshness. Tony is different. He can cook. Not only that his dishes are imaginative and beautifully presented. His service is excellent and he keeps in close contact so that you receive what you ordered and when you ordered it. I am ordering from the weekly menu and so far I find that I can find dishes to suit me, even tho I am a bit picky about what I eat.

Unexpectedly I had 17 arriving for Christmas dinner and with my small kitchen there was no way I could prepare a meal. Chef Paola did an exceptional job. The food was wonderful and heated just perfectly so when I got home all I had to do was serve it. She even made the giblet gravy that I had requested. Turkey was cut off the carcass as I had requested and ham was sliced to perfection. I had requested "real" mashed potatoes, which she did and my grandsons ate more then their share. Vegetables were done to perfection. The pies and cake I had ordered for dessert were to die for. Only thing I wish I had gotten one of her pistachio cakes that I have had and are wonderful. If I ever have another group for dinner, whether it be Christmas or just a special occasion, Chef Paola will be the first one I call for help.

Had a surprise couples diner planned for the misses on the back patio while our kitchen was being renovated. She brought out delicious food and set it up beautifully. Everything went smoothly and she helped to make everything just right from the meal plan to the presentation. Top notch and awesome people!

We hired Chef Katie to prepare 5 meals a week for our family right after we had our third baby. Chef Katie and I spoke prior to the baby arriving to discuss our families likes and dislikes and she devised a healthy and delicious weekly meal plan. My husband, who is my pickiest eater, loved the variety of meals. Chef Katie prepared seafood, Mexican, Asian and comfort foods. I loved that we were able to taper the meals to be healthy and nutritious for our children on top of being delicious and super easy to prepare. Most meals just needed to be heated or quickly cooked. Chef Katie went above and beyond cleaning up after cooking in our home. She was always on time, very sweet and kind when in our home. I would not hesitate to hire Chef Katie again and plan to in the future! She really did help me keep my sanity during those first weeks home with a newborn and twin toddlers. I am very grateful for her services & the time it gave me to spend with my family & our new baby.

Personal catering for "ladies birthday party" Garyn planned, prepped, cooked, served & cleaned up for a private birthday party. It was a seven course meal for 14 women. Everything was amazing! The menu was well thought-out & planned according the birthday girl's tastes. Each course was served timely, aesthetically & professionally as well as at the correct temperature. Hot dishes served hot & cool dishes served cool. Again every course was professionally prepared & served, right down the wine pairings accompanying each course. Best service I've ever had. So very impressed that I've had many friends repeat this exact same service. Kudos for any amazing idea for birthday parties:)

Breaking Bread with Mira is an EXCEPTIONAL Service. She met a very demanding limited ingredient requirement and prepared DELICIOUS options for Breakfast and Lunch. Service was prompt, wonderfully positive and we would definitely utilize her services again. You will get quality within you budget.

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!

Paul of PJ's BBQ makes some of the best pulled pork I've ever had. When combined with his home made sauce it's a meal that cannot be beaten by any other bbq group in town!

I was made a shrimp boil with potatoes and andouille sausage for a birthday celebration that I was having with a large group of friends and family. Stephanie did an outstanding job preparing the meal and serving it. She recommended having it on the lanai on a long table with butcher block paper. We all used our hands and couldn't get enough of the food...it was that good. We were only sorry that there wasn't more to devour as we were ravenous. She did a fantastic job. I had a great birthday meal. I would certainly use her for other jobs no matter how big or small, and I recommend her without hesitation!
