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

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!

Had the pleasure of having EE cater a couple of business luncheons for me and their performance was amazing! They provided delicious meals that the clients and staff loved. Their Homemade style Italian Lasagna was to die for. I would highly recommend them for any event or office luncheon. You will not be disappointed. This is Not your normal catered meal is far better and personal!

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!

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!

Janet has been a life saver for us. Our aging parents refused to move into independent living arrangements and were not eating properly. Thank goodness we found Janet. Not only did she personalize the meal plan the food has been fabulous. Our parents are very fussy eaters. Janet has been so responsive and our parents are very comfortable with her. We highly recommend Janet.

Rebecca was our in-home chef for 8 meals (over 3wks). Those meals were planned and prepared nutritionally based on our dietary concerns (diabetic and cardiac). She is a talented chef who takes pride in her cooking and strives to educate while creating a balanced menu. We enjoyed working with Rebecca and look forward to future meals!!!

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!

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.

Just had our first meal delivered and am excited for the rest of the week. We are extremely health conscious and have exacting demands on portions and content. The hours she will save us more than pays for the services alone. She delivered taste and nutrition on a great budget. We are very happy and look forward to a long and happy relationship with her as our chef.

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.

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.
