With 30 days until my wedding, I called Brian in a panicked state because I had reservations about a vendor I booked for my wedding over a year ago. I cannot express how thankful I am for his professionalism and understanding. He wrote down details from our phone conversation and unbeknownst to me did some research of his own. He then went out of his way to meet with me. At our consultation, he explained everything he found from his research, and how I should approach my next meeting with this vendor; he even had a list of questions to take with me. If he went above and beyond for someone who wasn't his client, I can only imagine what hoops he'd jump through for his own clients. He put my mind at ease and that's no easy feat for a bride to be.

One of the very best Chefs. Dan was the chef on duty last week during my stay in south beach. Every thing he prepared was outstanding. I consider myself hard to please when it come to cooking. Being a native of New Orleans, I consider myself a great cook. However, this guy top the xharts. If you are in the Miami area and need a chef I truly recommend Dan. Donna from Atlanta, GA

Called last minute to book a cooking class with Chef Sternberg. He was very prompt with his reply and always very professional. Although last minute, he was willing to accommodate me into his busy schedule and quickly put a menu together to make 3 types of desserts. We had a lot of fun! The food was delicious and the best part was taking leftovers home. My family appreciated it too! Would definitely recommend his services. My employees were very impressed and we had a special bonding time...Thanks Chef!!

Chef Paul of The Dancing Palate, Inc. is absolutely amazing!! The food was excellent, Paul has superb planning, he's very professional, knowledgeable about his craft and he is a pleasure to work with. From the first conversation we had with Paul we knew we had found what we were looking for. We were planning a birthday dinner (long distance) for about 20 people and Chef Paul prepared delicious hors d'oeuvres, family size dinner and a delectable dessert. He was very flexible with the menu options, communication was impeccable and he accommodated our every need and request. On the day of the event the presentation was absolutely beautiful and the food taste even better than imagined. He exceeded our expectations and having him as our chef really topped off our dinner party and gave the impression we were dining at a 5 star restaurant. He's a very nice and funny guy.. We would recommend him a million times over and if we are ever back in Miami we would look forward to working with him again. Stop searching for another chef and just book Chef Paul! You will not be disappointed.

I am so thrilled that we found Tasty Creations Catering for my daughter's wedding. This is the most professional Catering Company anyone could ever find. The communication between Chef David and his beautiful wife, are outstanding. I had asked question after question and always received responses back immediately or very soon after. They both made me feel special during this whole ordeal with the wedding planning. They were never too busy to communicate. After searching several Catering Companies, Tasty Creations came through with a superb menu for my daughter's wedding. They worked with us according to our budget and never did they make us feel like we were cheap with the dollar amount we were able to afford. Chef David set up a tasting for us and him and his wife came out to our place to do the tasting of appetizers, entrees, side dishes, and even cake tasting. The remarkable thing about Chef David, is that all his food is prepared right in front of you at the tasting and everything is so fresh and delicious. He even cracks jokes while preparing the foods for tasting. He's from North Carolina, which told me right off the bat, that he was going to be good! Chef David is very unique as he comes out to the site of the event and doesn't bring already prepared food to just set on warming trays. He comes out to the event hours about 4 hours in advance and prepares each food item right there! I find that amazing as not many places offer that type of catering service. He is the best in our book and I would never look any further again. He was prompt and his serving staff was very professional looking and super pleasant. The food was so fresh and absolutely the most delicious food we have ever had. It was an honor to hear our guests keep complimenting the meal. As a side note, I was in a bind for our rehearsal dinner, and I contacted Chef David and explained it was short notice but I wanted to see if he could help us out. I told him we had a very limited dollar amount for the rehearsal dinner and explained briefly what we wanted to have that evening. Chef David got back with me a few hours later with a menu plan that was right in our budget and exactly what we were looking for as far as the dinner we had hoped to have. Chef David and Margarita are willing to work with you no matter what your budget may be and you never have to be embarrassed if you are limited in what you can spend. By the way, Chef David is the absolute best lasagna maker! We have ordered numerous trays from him just to have for ourselves for dinner. We have never found any restaurant that can come close to Chef David's lasagna! Hats off to the best Caterer in the world, Chef David from Tasty Creations Catering! (By the way, Chef David, you finally have a hat to wear)! Lol You can't go wrong with Tasty Creations Catering!

I booked this caterer for my wedding on 12/30/17. I'm Jamaican and my husband and I wanted the jerk chicken with rice and pease. We also had the chance to taste the food prior to booking for the wedding. We worked with Kathy and told her what we like and didn't like at the tasting. The food was awesome at the wedding ! I would like for the chef to be recognized. We had so many compliments about the food. To my regret i didn't get the chance to take any pictures of the food. The servers were so kind and punctual. They provided awesome services. Thank you all for the great work.

Chef John did an excellent job catering our holiday dinner! The food was amazing and everyone is still talking about it a week later. We had Chicken Piccata, Prime Rib and Eggplant Parm. The apps and desserts were really good too! They were on time, set the display up very nicely with décor and all. And for pick up, they were there when they said they would be and it took less than 10 minutes. Overall a great experience and we will definitely use them again!

Chef O is the best! and I'm not one to hand out praise very freely. The food was on point and very well executed (we should have ordered even more :) even though we were very well fed), service and attention to detail was top notch, and we felt like we were dealing with an old friend and not just a chef for hire. You won't regret using these guys. Thanks again chef! We will be using you again real soon.

Kerry is an amazing pastry chef and beautiful person on the inside and out! I sent her the party invite and asked if she can match the design on the cake, add watercolor effect and nautical elements for my sister's baby shower. She matched the cake design perfectly and added her personal touch as well. It was tastefully done and came out elegant and way beyond my expectations! The cake was not only beautiful but also so tasty! Everyone were impressed and now two weeks later we still talk about it. Kerry was also professional and punctual. She kept communicating on the progress, asking questions, keeping me informed and delivered on time. Perfection!

Squisite was the perfect caterer for our birthday party for 50 people. They brought their food truck which they utilized as a kitchen, their servers and chef were incredibly professional and on time. They also decorated our tables with fresh flowers and beautiful props. I will definitely be utilizing their services again!

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.
