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!.

Cheryl is the consummate professional. The food is absolutely fantastic, and she makes every effort to ensure that you are getting the meals that you want. We have been using her as a personal chef for the past four months for weekday meals, and every meal has been delicious. She prepared an anniversary dinner for me and my wife, and it was extravagant. Cheryl recently did a dinner party for us as well, and she came in advance, prepped the food for us, and created a beautiful presentation. I can't say enough about her skills and attention to detail/quality - we are just so fortunate to have found her! Please feel free to email me if you would like more detail about her services. gobluemba@gmail.com Adam Gersh and Wende Kozlow

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!

Lisi is great! We hired her for a bachelorette party and she prepared 2 appetizers, a salad, entree and dessert for a group of 6. The whole group agreed that her demeanor and cooking were fantastic and certainly the highlight of our weekend! Her personality and customer service were wonderful and the meal she prepared was fresh, healthy and delicious. We would happily hire Lisi again and highly recommend her to future clients!

This guy is Amazing....from his easy going attitude to his awesome food preparation...He is off the charts with taste and creativity! We discussed what I wanted....He even schooled me on what wines and cocktails would go best with my meal. Bert came to my home and prepared a meal for nine of my friends for a Birthday celebration. Not only was the food amazing, the presentation was outstanding too! He chatted with my guests to find out what portions were needed and to see if anyone had any dislikes. I can tell you he is a bit of a ham and loves the attention but was very professional too :) From prep time to finish he was here around 4 hours.... He is a very "seasoned" chef....so after he cleans up...you may have to clean a little more. I would most certainly have him back again and would let him pick the meal plan next time!! You will be highly impressed with the quality of service you get with Bert!

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!

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!!

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!
