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!

Vivian has a true passion for preparing meals..She does not have one culture focus, but is versed in many. And although an "Artist" in every way, she loves working closely with us. She had done enough "Prep" work, to make the process in our Kitchen go very smoothly. Meal served on time, right temperature, and a blending of the outstanding flavours made it very memorable. Can't wait for the next presentation. Also, Just "down to Earth"..A real person!.

I arranged a special birthday dinner for my wife and 4 friends. They had a fantastic meal with great service and way to much food. All ingredients were fresh and purchased the morning of the surprise dinner evening. The salad with home made fennel dressing was adored and the crab cakes were delectable and perfect. The rest of the meal (main course - beef tenderloin, grouper delicious potato's, more) did not disappoint either. Great communication as I arranged this experience remotely - Recommend you strongly consider Intimate Catering. Ron Amodeo, Seminole FL

Dawn was an absolute joy to cook with and her dishes were phenomenal!!! I hired her as a surprise gift for my husband while we were in Clearwater celebrating our 2nd wedding anniversary. She went above and beyond with the little details, creating a nice centerpiece for our dinner and even creating the cutest printed menu for us! We had the greatest conversations while preparing the meal too. She was so friendly and personable. We had a shrimp cocktail appetizer and surf and turf shrimp and chicken pasta. The meats were so full of favor along with a delicious fresh alfredo pasta. Our dessert was even yummier! I would venture to say that her meal was the best one we had while we were in Clearwater, above even the nicest restaurants we dined at. I highly recommend hiring Dawn for your event and if ever we're there again we'll definately be calling her!

Jenner really impressed us with her cooking. We live internationally and were in the Tampa-bay area for a few weeks this summer while having various friends and family visiting. So I could spend more quality time with them, I hired Jenner to prepare some meals for us each week, as sometimes we had as many as eight people visiting. She was very friendly and professional-always with a smile. She arrived on time and with all the ingredients needed...and my kitchen was always spotless when she left. Jenner worked effortlessly and quietly - but answered any questions we had as she went along. She cooked various types of meals for us over a 3-week period...from an amazing "New Orleans-style shrimp" boil that was to die for, to a finger-licking southern fried catfish, collard greens and macaroni and cheese meal. She also made sure to make some snacks for us to have in between the meals. She catered to our vegetarian requests when necessary. Every week she made us a superb dessert- my favorite was the upside down pineapple cake! But I must add that her guacamole is the best I have ever tasted and I am a Texan! The food she prepared was absolutely delicious and presented beautifully. (She also seems very knowledgeable about the Tampa area and when asked, gave recommendations to a few places-especially a great hair salon I now feel I cannot live without!) Jenner is a sweetheart and obviously very passionate about her work. She did an outstanding job preparing meals for us and surpassed our expectations. I definitely wouldn’t hesitate to hire Jenner again and look forward to working with her the next time we are in town!

He was great! We had him come to our home to cook an NYE dinner. It made the evening that much more special and fun. It was so nice to not have to worry about cooking the meal, and be able to spend that time with family and friends. It was also very interesting talking to the chef, watching him prepare the dishes ( and even help!) and learn about what he was creating. Would recommend for a special occasion!

Alexandra prepared a meal for 8 friends and I at a rental property on Siesta Key. She did a grat job making suggestions for the meal and we settled on hummus and smoked mullet appetizers, shrimp boil and grilled veggies for our main course and the most delicious key lime tartlets for dessert. The food was excellent and she did a beautiful job setting the stage with butcher paper and candles for the shrimp boil. She also made two simply syrups to use as cocktail mixers. The blackberry was a big hit. The only thing I would do different for next time is to equestrian another appetizer as it did take a bit to get all of the food prepare and we were all very hungry. It was definite worth the weight!

HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Not only is the food fresh, healthy and tasty, but it's delivered right to my house. They ensure all my individual dietary requests are met. Above the Grain goes ABOVE AND BEYOND! Meals are affordable, compared to gas to the store, time to make each meal and I now have more time to spend with my family, or for work on days requiring long hours. The owner is fantastic to work with too. She is always positive, professional and meals are there rain or shine! I have felt more energized, healthy and at the weight I need to be for my personal goals, while never feeling hungry.... They feed ya!

Nancy's cooking is amazing. She is creative and will adjust recipes to suit your dietary needs. She prepared meals for my family during a time we were too busy to shop and cook, and there was such variety and freshness, it was hard to go back to reality! She is fun to work with on menus, and the perfect solution to your entertaining needs, too. No party without Nancy Gordon Fine Catering! We were sorry to see her move to Florida, but happy to know she will be back in the biz down there. The best!!

They are willing to fit your budget with a stress free GOURMET meal. All you have to do is invite your guests. I would highly recommend them for any of your catered events. They were awesome...Thank you Antoine, Victoria and rest of team for making our party a success.

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!

Kaitlynd has been great to work with! After providing a menu the prior week from which we pick and choose our meals, she cooks and drops off a weeks worth of dinner meals each Monday. She is very attuned to our needs as a family, and has been careful about accounting for allergies and food preferences; she has been accommodating us with a Mediterranean diet. Everything she makes is not only nutritious and healthy, but delicious as well. I have been so impressed with her work ethic and attention to detail, as well as her incredible ability as a chef.
