I needed a personal Chef very last minute (like 2 days before my dinner party) and he responded right away with a full quote. His cost was lower than other chefs that had contacted me due to the fact that he does not charge a separate fee for groceries. He was on time and even brought an assistant with him to help with clean up and she served us just like we were in a restaurant! The Meal included two appetizers, an entree AND dessert all of which were amazing! I highly recommend Chef Antwan's services to anyone who is looking for a professional, fun, and experienced chef for their next event or dinner party.

The food was mouthwatering delicious! I was so blown away by the food and then they serve it to us which was a wonderful touch. I loved chef Vivian she was so nice and wonderful to me and my husband. She even learned how to make my favorite appetizer and served it and it tasted amazing. Chef Vivian's food should be in a five star restaurant it's so amzing.

Tamara did an outstanding job on my daughters birthday cake/cupcakes. I've been lucky enough to attend 3 events that have utilized her. I attended a baby shower with food and desserts and two other Birthday parties with different food and desserts. The presentation and quality of food was fabulous. I will recommend her to all my contacts looking for a professional chef!

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.

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)

Chef Jenner customized a lovey dinner for me and 7 girlfriends visiting Anna Maria Island this fall. She accommodated all of our requests - even a yummy gluten-free lava cake! Would definitely ask her to cook again the next time I'm in town!

We are writing a recommendation for Gillian Nelson, who has been an excellent employee of ours for the past 8 years at our home on Nantucket. Gillian has served our Nantucket household skillfully, cheerfully and with a high degree of professionalism. There is simply nothing she can’t do, being an excellent house manager, chef, caretaker and caregiver who has a wonderful, , cheerful spirit and a continuous smile on her face. Gillian managed and ran a very busy summer household on Nantucket and wore many hats for the past eight years. She is an excellent chef and cook, and ran the kitchen for our busy summer household, creating fresh, healthy organic meals for 2 to 20 with seemingly little effort. Gillian is a joy in the kitchen and our many guests loved her spirit, warmth and delicious meals. Gillian managed and maintained a demanding household for two professionals who commuted and traveled away regularly, and managed and took care of a busy household of constant summer guests which required excellent organizational skills. Gillian is not afraid to work hard and dive in herself, being very hands on, tackling cleaning, housekeeping, carpentry, painting, oversight of construction and renovation projects, driving and maintaining cars and supervising the many vendors who serve the house, including lawn care, garden and pool personnel and tradesmen such as carpenters, plumbers, roofers, repairmen, etc. The Nantucket property is large and demanding. Gillian took care of every aspect of its maintenance skillfully and energetically. She also cared for 3 dogs at once, no small feat. There is nothing Gillian cannot do. We wholeheartedly recommend Gillian in any professional role be it as an estate manager, private chef, caretaker, or care-giving situation. She is unfailing honest and trustworthy, has a huge heart; she would be an asset to any private household. We know any future employer would be lucky to have as devoted and talented a helper as Gillian. We are happy to answer any questions or supply further recommendations. Please call 410 404 2004 or email coopergreenberg@aol.com Stephanie and Erwin Greenberg

Everything about this company was fantastic. The food was master chef quality and the prices were too good to be true! They were very professional, responsive and on time. They are willing to fit your budget with a stress free GOURMET meal. All you have to do is invite your guests. I would highly recommend them for any of your catered events. They were awesome...Thank you Antoine, Victoria and rest of team for making our party a success.

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.

About

For personal chef service, we set the menu. I shop, cook, clean, date and label meals, and store them in the refrigerator, ready for the week. I also offer private chef services, where I shop, come in and cook the meal for that day. I do catering for everything -- birthdays, office parties, holiday parties, picnics, and corporate events.
