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.
Chef Paul did an amazing job cooking a spectacular meal for our parents. We asked him to come and do an interactive dinner as a special gift for them. He nailed it! They had such a wonderful evening and Chef Paul made it more special than we could've asked for! Not to mention the food was amazing! I highly recommend him and will be using him again in the future! Thanks Chef! -Megan
I had Julian do a private cooking class for 12 of us. It was fabulous! Everyone enjoyed him, his humor, tips and food of course. Would hire him again in a heartbeat! Outstanding.
My family has Lou cooking meals several days a week. As both myself and my wife work full time this really takes the pressure off us and gives us more family time. We are very focused on healthy food and Lou does a great job providing that.
Chef Ricardo did a cooking class for 12 of my friends and it was awesome!! After the class he serves us an incredible 3 course dinner of what he had taught us to make! My friends are talking about it!!
I put together a surprise intimate dinner party to celebrate my best friend's 40th and her cousin's 50th. Chef Davin created a Southern BBQ cuisine with a contemporary twist. It was delicious! My entire party of 13 was raving about how great the food and service was. From the appetizers to the main course, we all wanted more!! Not only was Chef Davin great with the creation of the menu, he was indeed very helpful in helping me plan out the dinner. He was also very accommodating with the date and time as well to make sure the surprise went well. I would recommend him to any and everyone who needs a chef for their event. He is thoughtful in what he cooks and puts his clients needs first. Thanks again Chef Davin!!!
This beautiful lady, my sister, shipped 70 people's worth of her fabulous food to New Hampshire to make sure my 60th birthday guests got nothing but the best. Mama is legend in the gourmet pasta world because her dedication and love for what she does and delivers everyday to her customers can only be the best.
I highly recommend Dave as a personal chef! He has a variety of gourmet dishes that anyone would love! I have had many of his dishes and wish that I could have him cook for me on a daily basis!
Had a catering order with Final Touch Gourmet catering for 50 people. Everything went like clockwork and the food was excellent. Chef Adam added some unique flair to the menu which made the party even more special.
Let me start by saying I arranged for The Happy Hour Private Chef to cook a meal for my parents in their home. I personally have not had his food, nor know him, other than reviews from this site. Chef Antoine is very professional. He is a great communicator, responsive, and fair. My parents enjoyed his company and appreciated his thoughtful gestures. I would say his speciality is not necessarily gourmet meals, more simple food done well... Of note, my parents are older and very private people and they were very comfortable having him in their home, and I know when you are hiring an unknown person, this can be helpful information. Send him an email and see what you think. Never hurts to ask, run an idea and see if there is a connection. Afterall, most of life is based on connections and chemistry. You don't know until you try...
Catherine is an amazing personal chef. She is punctual and professional. She prepared exquisite healthy and nutritious meals that allowed me to jumpstart my metabolism. I have lost a total of 65lbs since I started working with Chef Cat! If you want a first class personal chef who can prepare Vegan, Vegetarian, Paleo, Pescetarian, or regular meals....then Chef Cat is the correct choice. Oh, by the way, if you want a great tasting desert on your "cheat day", she is also an amazing pastry chef😋!
I loved the experience of cooking alongside my girlfriend and having Ana’s expertise guide us in the process made for a tasty dinner. Ana made it a fun, comfortable and learning experience trying out new dishes. I would gladly do it all over again as soon as possible. Zestcipes’ cooking class is the best thing my girlfriend and I have done together recently and would greatly recommend it to anyone wanting to learn and have a great date night at home!
Ursula's cooking skills are outstanding, we are very happy with her. Every meal she has prepared for us has been a gourmet delight!! We would highly recommend her to anyone.
Excellent chef with equally amazing staff and food! He was personable w/out being intrusive. His food was received well by even our pickiest guest. He accommodated all of our quirky requests including cooking a fish my 10 year old had just caught! I have already booked him for the future.
We found the whole Roxanne cooking class experience to be exceptional! Her attention to detail is unmatched and her engaging persona is second to none. We highly recommend her Celebration Cooking Cookbook and believe it belongs in any passionate cooks' kitchen.
Our experience with PCS Events and Productions left my family and friends "AMAZED"! Their personalized service, attention to details, gourmet quality food, decorations and food presentation exceeded our expectations! Barbara's meticulous attention to details and her sincerity gave us the peace of mind that "our event" would be "perfect and exactly what we visualized". For the first time ever we were actually able to "enjoy" our own party! I loved getting up the next morning and finding my home impeccably clean. And the best part ... I didn't have to "mortgage" my house "to pay for it! Every step of the way Barbara willingly worked with our "budget" and gave us practical suggestions that "stretched" our "party $$$" . I rate PCS a "10" out of "5" stars... they go way beyond your expectations!
I used chef Tracy of summer rain cafe for a brunch I had the day after my daughters wedding. From the menu she created to fit my budget, to the presentation of the food everything was outstanding. Everything she made was homemade. I will definetly use chef Tracy at my next event and I highly recommend Tracy and summer rain cafe.
