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

Linda agreed to provide a gourmet dinner for nine on very short (24 hours) notice after the chef I originally hired took ill. She was able to replicate the menu I had originally agreed upon with the other chef, with a few touches of her own that were definitely enhancements. Every course of the five-course meal she prepared was delicious and my guests and I were delighted. Linda was professional, neat and unobtrusive.

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!

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!

James and his sous chef, Ida, were great. The meal he prepared for our date night was spot on. He was right on time (we were a few minutes late coming home) and they came in like a well oiled machine. James and Ida quickly and efficiently started the cooking. After the delicious four course meal was finished they left my kitchen cleaner than it started. We will be recommending James to all of our friends and call him first in the future.

    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!!

    Josh was amazing! He was professional yet approachable, and the meal he made was exactly what our group of 8 was looking for. He did three courses, and each was perfectly prepared. Such a fun night and I would absolutely recommend Josh and plan to hire him again in the near future.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
