My family and I hired Chef Paola and her company to cater my engagement party in April 2016. The party had about 40 guests and was held at my mother's home. Communication, food selection/recommendation and organization with Paola prior to the event was excellent. Upon arrival, about an hour prior to my guests arriving (per my request) she set everything up professionally and took the worry of food organization off my shoulders completely. All the food was exceptionally well prepared that day at her end (again per my request) and brought to my mother's home in temperature controlled boxes. We ordered the following: mushroom bruschetta puff pastry purses stuffed pasta shells chicken piccata meatballs eggplant parmagen assorted cupcakes bread pudding Let me say, I didn't think I was much of a fan of Italian cuisine. I actually chose Chef Paola because my fiancée loves Italian cuisine, but after tasting all of Chef Paola's food on the day my mind was changed! Her cooking is EXCEPTIONAL! The food is honestly the most delicious Italian food I've ever tasted and I've been to Italy on a number of occasions. All the feedback from my guests was wonderful too. ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS was the common consensus among my guests. From the cute arrangement of the cupcakes in the shape of a ring and wedding dress to the professional nature of the preparation, taste, and serving, I would absolutely recommend Chef Paola and hire her again in the future.

Paola was the best! She far exceeded my expectations. This was my first time hiring a chef to surprise my girlfriend with a Christmas dinner and Paola advised me where I needed it and she trusted my decision making in the process too. I couldn’t be happier and have already rehired her for another special event!!!

Details: Holiday party • Cocktail hour or hors d'oeuvres • Italian • Small bites • No, drop off only • Home • Yes, full kitchen • Fewer than 20 guests • Premium (high end ingredients)

We hired Chef Paola to cook for a 50th Surprise Birthday party. She was a absolute blessing to our event. We had her cook in our home and everything she prepared was AMAZING! Our guests are still talking about the food. She was professional and a lot of fun! She also had a assistant "Brenda" with her and a bartender "Kim" who were both equally as great. I highly recommend using Chef Paola for your party needs.

Details: Party host • Birthday / anniversary party • Cocktail hour / hors d'oeuvres • Cold beverages (alcoholic) • American - casual • Small bites • Only drop off is necessary • Home • Yes - full kitchen (oven, stove, refrigerator, sink, and utensils) • 21 - 30 guests • $$ (standard)

The food you prepared for our cocktail party was so delicious and also so attractive in our red and green theme! We had so many compliments on the hors d'oevres. We hardly had a single piece left over as we cleared the night's trays at the party's ending. We seemingly ordered just enough and the meatballs seemed to be the hit, followed by the baguette pinwheels with peas and red pepper. Also, thank you for sending us the cookie sampler--we should have ordered red and green cookies from you as well, and now know better! We would love to work with you again in future and would not hesitate to recommend you to others for their events.
