I had to have last minute services for a dinner party event this week. Chef Tamara connected with me within 5 minutes and assisted me with all the details of planning a successful dinner party that was within my budget and beautifully presented and all food was delicious! Chef Tamara has an extensive menu to choose from and everything that I ordered got outstanding reviews. I was impressed with her menu choices, quality and presentation was a "WOW" moment. Tamara worked within my budget and helped me with ideas to pull off this quick event (which was the next day) and made this experience seamless. I had guests asking for her contact information and many positive comments were made about the scrumptious dinner, selection of entrees and unique display of desserts that she provided. She had a dessert display that was just incredible! It has been a long time since I have utilized services of a caterer, I highly recommend Chef Tamara as she manages every detail and I can honestly say she made my event one that I was proud of. My guests were happy and I will call her again!

Cheryl sets the bar wayyy to high for private chefs. Once you have had a private chef experience with her, you will never invite a different chef into your home or private event. From the moment I hired Cheryl for a surprise couple's dinner over Labor Day Weekend, she made it very clear that she aimed to provide a "blow you away" experience. First she designed the three course menu. I told her what I had in mind (lighter dinner - fish and seafood) and she instantly started providing her ideas with pictures of different dishes, different types of fish, sauces, presentation styles, etc. We agreed on a shrimp polenta cake w romesco sauce topped w sauteed carrots appetizer, an atlantic cod on a bed of smashed potatoes with olive and mushrooms, and a creme brulee. Our friends that we surprised with the meal both said it was one of the best meals they had ever had. We agreed. Leading up to the day of the event, Cheryl covered all the details. Since we were staying at a resort, she asked about everything from the type of dishes available to whether she should bring a tablecloth. She made wine recommendations, and even brought us a bottle for the dinner. The final presentation was perfect. Cheryl connected immediately with our group and was ready to impress - she got right to work when she arrived, but not after exchanging pleasantries and making sure that she knew her audience. All in all, Cheryl provides white glove customer service, has the most genuinely friendly and professional personality and is awesome to work with. She impresses from the moment you say YES, and even before that. Her cooking is delicious. It was a gourmet meal that we would have paid much, much, much more for at a reataurant, but she brought it to the comfort of our home (hotel). The presentation of the food was impressive, and everything was served with so much love. Cheryl takes great pride in what she does. We look forward to making Cheryl's cooking a part of our yearly tradition. I would never consider using anyone else. You will not be disappointed with Cheryl. Dont look any further - you have found your private chef for life. (I NORMALLY AM VERY LAZY ABOUT WRITING REVIEWS, BUT CHERYL PROVIDED SUCH AN IMPRESSIVE EXPERIENCE THAT I WOULD NOT FEEL GOOD NOT WRITING ONE)

Dawn is so very professional and knowledgeable. I am giving my 2 kids the gift of cooking lessons with her for Christmas. She is prepared, conscientious, and thorough in explanation and goals. I know my kids are going to learn how to cook basics and work their way up to being chefs one day! I would recommend Dawn to anyone, either for a private chef, one time lesson or multiple lessons.

We have used Lisi's home chef service for several weeks and are delighted with it. The meals have been exciting and delicious and we (3 in my family) have enjoyed them immensely. We have been introduced to some new foods and new ways of preparing some dishes. The delivery has always been on time and I like that she delivers the meals in microwavable containers. I recommend Chef Lisi highly!

I was lucky enough to be a guest at the home of a friend that hired Norma to be our private chef for the evening. I already knew Norma but had not yet experienced her amazing culinary talents! She served a party of 10, a delectable six course dinner, that was to die for!! Everyone raved over her selections, that paired well with the wine that was chosen for that evening. She is a total professional and was a great contribution to a lovely evening.

The private cooking class was a Father's Day gift for my husband who let me say "can't cook". Chef Christophe was very responsive and listen to what type of experience I was looking to give my husband and Chef Christophe DELIVERED!!!!! He made my husband feel very comfortable and a very positive experience. My husband is now looking forward to possibly learning and cooking more. And the added plus is Chef Christophe help him to prepare and cook us a delicious meal. Thank you Chef Christophe! We look forward to our next cooking encounter with you.

We hired Ellena couple of months ago as a Personal Chef for my husband and I, and have been more than thrilled with her service, quality of food and price point. She also went above and beyond to get the book that I had referenced for a special diet that I was trying to follow. She cooks for us once a week, four times a month. Would be happy to give a reference.

    Colleen had dinner ready exactly on time. She brought the food needed to prepare a delicious dinner. She prepared chicken with a white wine sauce, spinach, yellow squash, and a eye & tummy pleasing salad. Diner was full of vibrant colors, inticing smells and scrumptious food. Colleen cleaned the kitchen and washed every dish by hand (since I don't own a dishwasher). She definitely went the extra mile and to top it off she brought a bonus dessert, her newly tested key lime pie recipe.
