Our Cookery Demo with Vivian was an outstanding success and much enjoyed by all of us. Vivian was prompt, courteous and very knowledgable. I have enjoyed cooking for many years but picked up so many new tips in the 3 hours we had together. Our finished dinner menu was delicious and we all sat down together and ate which was a lovely way to finish our time together with Vivian. Would highly recommend her services and we will be booking another day during the Christmas Holidays.

Kathy and Jeff Paradise are a full-package for the busy full-time working bride. They handle the busy details from catering to reception rentals, setup and decor in any style you desire. We opted for a sit down table service wedding reception on Saturday, May 18, 2013 for approximately 100 guests. Kathy and Jeff offer many pleasing menu choices ranging from comfort food to many items for even the most sophisticated palate. We settled on our selections and details that suited our style wedding reception. The venue we selected for our wedding reception provided very little lead time to set-up other than the morning of the wedding. This problem was easily solved by Kathy and her team who set up all the tables, chairs, and decor. This leaves the bride with nothing to worry about and allowed me to focus on getting ready for the wedding. The details were impressive. Guests enjoyed the h'orderves and happy hour while waiting for the bride and groom to arrive. The appetizer table had a beautiful presentation, and when we arrived we had our own appetizer platter ready our head table. Our guests had their choice of Lasagna with Meatballs, or Chicken Picatta. The Caesar salad was made with a delicious homemade dressing. A candy & coffee station was set up for guests to enjoy after dinner. Everything Kathy and Jeff make is from scratch and the layers of flavor in everything you taste is amazing. It is evident that cooking is something they are passionate about. Kathy has high expectations of herself and those she works with, which provides great results. Our wedding was the event everyone was talking about! We received lots of positive feedback from our guests and many inquired about having Kathy and Jeff cater their future wedding receptions. Kathy & Jeff Paradise come highly recommended for catering weddings, anniversary parties, or special events.

The food is absolutely amazing! It's rare to find a catering company that can cook food in large quantities that is flavorful and seasoned. Staff is personable and professional. Livy O's works with any budget, and always offers alternatives and menu options. The cooking classes are fun and interactive! This is an excellent, flexible caterer.

My husband and I were treated to a special anniversary dinner compliments of my daughter. I spoke to Chef Jay ahead of time and placed our order. He arrived on time, cooked our meal, served it, cleaned up and left. I can't say enough how delicious it all was. What a special treat. We had the eggplant rollatinit, caprese salad and stuffed flounder with crabmeat. It was like a bit of heaven on earth. I would highly recommend him and hopefully can get my girlfriends together for a cooking class with him. Thank you Chef Jay for a memorable evening.

Rebecca and I played some email tag setting things up but the extra time was well worth it as the cooking class she conducted for my folks was really fun and both learned quite a bit from Rebecca, and will likely be cooking a lot more pastries as a result. I haven't used thumbtack previously but i can say that when searching for a particular custom service in a remote location, the platform was very helpful and I am glad I found a great match in Chef Wilson.

Ashley is an amazing chef. I'm gluten free and she makes the best food, including baked goods and treats. I never feel like I'm missing out. Not only is she an awesome chef, but she gives great cooking lessons too - really informative and down to my level. Not to be overlooked are her incredible marshmallows, granola - and my personal favorite - the caramels!!!! Amazing!

It would be difficult to summarize my love for Edyth James in this narrative, or my love for her cooking. She is in a class all her own. You will not find anyone in this area who comes close to her abilities. I was introduced to Edyth and her amazing cuisine over 20 years ago, when she and her late husband ran the infamous resturant Saffron's on Park Street. I was blown away. It was like ecstasy on my tongue. I was hooked. My husband and I were regulars in her establishment and actually had our wedding reception there. She is not only an amazing cook, she makes you feel like family with her genuine kindness. She is the first person that comes to mind if I'm having an event or gathering. Her food is alway the centerpiece. Do yourself a favor. Try her, you will not be disappointed.
