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.
I hired The Dancing Palate for my boyfriends birthday. I wanted to make his birthday special and memorable. Instead of going out to a restaurant, the restaurant came to us! In my first meeting with Chef Paul, he took his time to explain to me the current menu, services and clean up, customizing a menu to my liking, pricing, etc. I have to say that Chef Paul delivered better than I expected! He was prompt to my home, dinner was served on time, did a cooking demonstration and every single course was absolutely delicious! My boyfriend was really impressed! We had the jalapeno bites and meatballs with homemade barbecue pineapple sauce, the braised beef short ribs on a bed of cauliflower and stuff chicken sausage with pasta. For dessert, the chocolate cheesecake with sauce and whipped cream on the side with a mint as a garnish. I highly recommend "The Dancing Palate" to everyone! I am so glad that found them via Thumbtack. The Dancing Palate was professional, kind, and very entertaining. I will request their services in the near future.
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.
Lori catered a party for me and everything was absolutely perfect--- i love to cook but she was the star
What an amazing experience we had with purple door! Todd and his wife are an incredible duo. We found them through thumbtack and requested they do a southern-style appetizer menu. They actually came to my house and did a quick tasting for me. The party was 130 people. The food was self-serve on a long table. We set up the presentation because we wanted to and they guided us as to the types of trays they needed for each part of the meal. The meal included mini chicken and waffles, corn fritters, macaroni and cheese, bbq pulled pork sliders and shrimp and grits. Our guests raved about the food all night and for days after the party. They are truly talented cooks. Not only was the food amazing- but the table always had hot food on it. The food trays were constantly replenished. Purple Door really knows what they're doing. Service is top notch. And food was so tasty! The crowd we served is a very picky one and they had nothing but compliments for Purple Door. I am certain they will get repeat business after this party. Thank you for everything, Purple Door!
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!!
Chef Alaine and Sarah were unbelievable! Food outstanding, professional and even gave us some great cooking tips throughout the night. Clean up amazing! They were amazing!
My son had the opportunity to cook with Chef Deb. What an experience. He was so focused and loved it. What a great experience. If your child is interested in this they would love it. The next day we bought a pasta maker. We are looking to do it again.
I really enjoy her cooking, her presentations are great,
An exceptional class taught by an exceptional Chef! I am working on my culinary certification and had asked Chef Maury's help to polish my skills up. It took a couple of months until I could finally schedule my class (my schedule won't permit) but Chef Maury replied promptly whenever I send him a message. The class itself lasted for about 4 hours, concentrating on knife skills, stock making and basic cooking techniques. He was very keen in making sure I make the right cuts and correcting me right away. His kitchen is a standard home kitchen so you don't have to worry about being intimidated by big equipment. Whether you have a culinary background like I do or just a home cook who wants to learn more, Chef Maury is the right guy to show you the ropes. I am already looking forward to my next class!
My class used PCS events for our graduation party this past Friday and it turned out amazing! From the first meeting to the tasting to the actual event everything was perfect! Since it was a class event we were on a budget and Barbara was able to work with us and rearrange a few things so our budget would work out for the type of event we had in mind. We gave Barbara all of our ideas and when we arrived to the event after our grad ceremony we were shocked. Everything was perfectly how we imagined it! Barbara and her staff were very friendly and cooperative to all of our needs and I could not have asked for a better turn out! I will most definitely be using PCS events again in the future.
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.
WOW!!! Everything about the evening was perfect! I am an average cook and Nicolas made me feel so comfortable with all the new skills he taught me. The menu included fillet of snapper with a cream caper sauce with brussell sprouts and pancetta. The food was amazing , better than most restaurants and the evening was fun and informative . Nicolas taught me many tips on how to be a better cook. I now have compound butter and fish stock in my repertoire. Tonight I am trying the exact recipe on some good friends and next Wednesday Nick is teaching me red sauces. Nick is warm, funny, well prepared and a very skilled chef. In addition after enjoying this wonderful creative meal, he cleaned up my kitchen, WOW. I would highly recommend Nicholas and can't wait for my next lesson.
Their food was amazing. I don't usually eat some ingredients in some of the dishes but I wanted to taste the food the way they made it. I'm glad I did!
Katherine did an outstanding job for us. She helped with suggestions for the menu, selected exceptionally fresh and high quality ingredients, came prepared and ready to make our evening a wonderful success. All the dishes came out with beautiful presentations and were delicious. Katherine was so pleasant, all our guests loved her and were planning on using her services for future events. She really made our little dinner party a memorable evening. I will also use her again and would like to take private cooking classes from her also.
Laura was delightful!!! Very flexible to work with and was great with teaching and encouraging my 12 and 14 year old boys on cooking lessons and making it fun for them. It was like having my mom in the kitchen with us, very relaxed and the food was absolutely delicious!
Ana was a pleasure to work with on all levels. She is very professional, punctual, flexible and definitely knows her stuff! Her cooking lessons were very well planned, informative and fun! I highly recommend her.
As a professional chef at the executive level, my work stands out from most catering services in terms of quality, consistency and precision. Operating 4 commercial kitchens, one banquet, one three meal restaurant, room service and pool grill kitchen enables me to effectively manage time and delegate tasks to complete the workload on time all the time and with a very high standard. This translates well into the personal chef services I provide in that I have the knowledge and experience to complete your event in a manner that will exceed your expectations within your budget and timeframe.
I love to cook, so it is very easy for me to plan meals, set tables and present wonderful settings.
