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.

Chef Janet surpassed my hopes and expectations. Grilling an entire surf and turf meal for 12 including appetizers and dessert for a special family dinner at the beach Chef Janet was incredible. No refrigerator, no sink, and no easy access to running water - she was amazing. Dinner was superb! Steaks were grilled to perfection. Shrimp and scallop skewers with fresh vegetables and new potatoes with a fresh herb sauce were simply amazing!! Not only was the food delicious, Chef Janet was absolutely delightful to work with throughout our planning .... providing excellent suggestions and promptly responding to emails. Thanks to Chef Janet our evening was nothing short of FANTASTIC!! I highly recommend Cloud 9 Catering and Personal Chef Services.

Chef Kevin cooked for a private dinner party of 6 in our home. His wife helped him and they were in our home for about 5 - 5 1/2 hours. We were very happy with the quality of the food and service they provided! I would definitely recommend Rock Lobster Chefs to anyone!

Kippster Catering did a great job for my event. Not only did he show up on time and go out of his way to make sure all of my guests were happy, he left a clean space and even gave me a few recipes for the food he created so I can try to make them again later! I will definitely be using his services again.

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.

About

My business profile? More of a passion than anything! Since I was old enough to stand on a chair by myself, I have been cooking up a storm! My idea of a great get together is having a beautiful table presentation along with great-tasting foods. I myself entertain quite a bit in my own home in South Cape Coral, Florida. I also collect vintage linens, cocktail napkins, silverware, and serving equipment which I am happy to share. I have over 20 years as a co-partner in a Italian restaurant 20 miles north of Chicago and use to cater on the side. My passion is presenting my ideas, if needed, and talents, and making sure all things go perfectly smooth as planned. I love using my own "treasures" since I could never possibly use them all by myself. My business is a "hobby" which gives you undivided detailed attention to whatever you need done for your event. I desire to work home services etc. to "ease" and "free up" time to enjoy your party.
