I was requesting quotes for my sons 5th grade banquet IN VERY SHORT NOTICE. Out of 50, I CHOSE BLESS MY SOUL FOOD CATERING & MORE!!!!! I needed to cater to 250+ guests. The vendors I had lined up for this event would not have been able to beat the cost, the timing, accommodating such a crowd on such short notice...NOR do it effortlessly with quality, FLAVOR and efficiency the ways I was catered to by THIS company. Immediately they were on my phone offering suggestions, and arranging to meet to HELP plan the menu as well offer any additional hand in any and every way for this event. Their time was very precious and they offered so much they didn't have to (that was so personal and comforting). On the day of the banquet, they were very much prepared, on time, organized, well dressed, extremely professional and SKILLED to the MAX! The dishes were AMAZING! Hot, fresh, flavorful, well made and well presented!!! Everything was cooked to perfection and so much more than I ever expected!! QUALITY! QUALITY! QUALITY! And can I say QUALITY! This catering company BEATS ALL I have ever seen, tasted, experienced and known!! From BBQ to fine dining THEY LITERALLY DO IT ALL AND DO IT VERY VERY WELL!!!!! THEY ARE AWESOME AND ACCOMMODATE ANY AND EVERY EVENT TYPE AND VENUE!!! I've been in the event world in Orlando for 15 years and my Father for 40! WE WERE BOTH VERY IMPRESSED AND BLESSED TO HAVE FOUND THEM!!! By far THE MOST efficient, personal, accommodating, cost effective, punctual, reasonable and DELICIOUS ((SOOOO DELICIOUS)) I enjoyed the company of these fine ladies and appreciated the extra hand. The LOVE for what this company does is defined in their great service, THE FLAVOR, THE QUALITY, the presentation and above all BEING ONE OF A KIND!!! NOT MANY CATERING COMPANIES CAN SAY THAT -- BUT THIS ONE CAN AND OWNS IT!!!! Any type of food dishes, ANY TYPE OF GATHERING.... ANY NUMBER OF GUESTS, from a small crowd (even a dinner for 2) to 300 people/PLUS...THIS COMPANY DEFIES ALL I HAVE EVER SEEN!!!! I AM SO GRATEFUL AND HONORED TO HAVE THEM AS A PERMANENT "GO-TO" VENDOR!!!! I RECOMMEND THEM FOR ANY AND ALL OCCASIONS!!! WHEN I SAY THEY COOK IT ALL--THEY DO IT ALL---THEY MAKE IT ALL SO PERSONAL--- THE FOOD IS EVERYTHING!!!!!!!!! 100% X 100% SATISFIED!!!! I WILL BE PROMOTING THEM TO EVERYONE I KNOW AND EVERYONE I DON'T KNOW! WATCH OUT CATERING WORLD, THIS COMPANY IS THE REAL DEAL AND TOP NOTCH!!!!! THEIR PRICES ARE OUTSTANDING AND UNBEATABLE! THEIR DISHES ARE DIVINE AND HOMEMADE! THEIR SERVICE IS ONE OF A KIND! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!

Chef Derek came to our home to do a cooking lesson for my teenage nephew and me. He taught us about nutrition and food sanitation/safety (especially good for young learners), then moved to knife skills, and we finished by making the best Alfredo dish I've ever had! Chef Derek was knowledgeable, professional, and fun! We had a great time while learning a variety of skills and techniques, then had an amazing meal when it was all over. We will be calling him again!

When my second child was born I found that finding time to cook was near impossible. It had also been harder to stockpile food in advance. Frozen food and takeout got old really fast. Having fresh high quality food made right in my home was amazing. Maria has prepared meals for me twice and each time they were so delicious. One time Maria arrived to cook and ended up making my lunch also as I hadn't even had a chance to eat that day. When I needed my meals to be totally dairy free Maria went the extra mile to make sure the food featured flavors that were amazing but completely safe for me to eat. The large portions meant leftovers every meal. It was amazing to have all my favorite dishes cooked in my own home by someone that wasn't myself! And I think my kitchen was cleaner when she left than when she arrived. Her services were one of the best post-delivery gifts I was given. They were so good I contracted another round myself. Her friendly unobtrusive demeanor made me completely comfortable as I nursed my baby, napped, and went about my business as she cooked. I highly recommend her and anything she cooks!

I sincerely wish I could give him 10 stars! I started working with Chef Garyn about 6 months prior to my event. I live in Maryland and came to Florida with 12 other people to celebrate my son 5th birthday! I hired Chef Garyn to cook us dinner for his party and as a farewell and thank you to our guest! From the moment I contacted him he was prompt in his replies and so very understanding of my many changes due to the difficulty of planning a party from many states away. He took all stress off of me and came up with the menu which he allowed me to change if I wanted and ensured he stayed in close contact. The day of the party he showed up to our vacation home on time and was by far the nicest person ever and so professional. Literally my entire family loved him!! They are still talking about him and how we all wish we could have taken him home with us! The food was cooked to absolute perfection as well as the dessert! None of us eat carrots on a regular basis but we all went back for seconds, even my nephew who is an extremely picky eater. He shopped, cooked, served, and cleaned up which by far exceeded my expectations! The shopping was major to me because after traveling 15 hours, going grocery shopping was the last thing I wanted to do but he took care of EVERYTHING! All of my family are still talking about him and how we can't wait to return next year to have him again! In 5 hours he became like apart of our family! I HIGHLY recommend him to anyone looking for a delicious meal with a personable, professional, and all around awesome chef!!!!

I was lucky enough to host a cooking class/dinner party with Lindy recently. I had homemade unsweet chocolate from a farm in Ecuador, and Lindy taught me how to make it into an unbelievably delicious and intricate molè sauce, a recipe which she developed from her molè experiences traveling throughout Oaxaca. She has a wealth of food knowledge and experience from around the globe that she shares with great patience, generosity and some humor thrown in for spice. Lindy creates with diverse flavors in her palate and with local and healthy ingredients in the foreground. You will thank yourself for hiring her!

I regularly go to food truck events, and near my work they cycle through a variety of local food trucks for lunch. Having had most of the popular trucks as well as many of the lesser known ones, I can say with confidence that Louie's Bistro is the best. There are three main factors for my reasoning: 1) Quality. Louie takes pride in his truck. You can food is his passion and he doesn't want anyone to leave without a great meal. 2) Quantity. It's rare that a a service has both great quality and quantity. But the portions I get for the price are way better than any other truck in Orlando. The meals almost always come with sides like fries or rice. Most other trucks charge you extra. This is an incredible value. 3) Creativity. Louie constantly has "specials" outside of his regular menu. These keep me coming back and curious to see what he has next. He's had some of the most incredible duck confit, risotto, sriracha chicken, and you can't miss the filet mignon sandwich if it's there. He can cook any type of cuisine, including French, Cuban, Asian, Caribbean, etc. He knows how to bring the best flavors from these cuisines and integrate them into amazing tasting meals.

I'm not usually someone who leaves reviews but I could not have been happier with my experience with Southern Bites Catering. I was hosting an event at my business like I have done many times in the past. Typically the companies I hire all do a good job but its generally the same style of presentation; chaffing dishes with some type of chicken, a pasta, a veggie, potato etc. I was looking for something a bit more inventive and exciting. And boy did I get it! The fruit table was the coolest thing I have ever seen! And the other food stations were unlike any self serve food stations that I have been exposed to in the past. AWESOME JOB! Will definitely be using Southern Bites again!

Me Gusta Gustavo showed on time, was very professional, very accommodating even for my somewhat picky guests. His food was so delicious even the pickiest tried it all and loved it all. He even did the dishes. So much food great value more reasonable than most might think for a personal chef to come to your home and cook for you. He even does meal planning even for the strictest diet regimes. I would hire him again without question!!!

    A group of 13 including Guss spent the week together at the Noah's Ark Children's Home in Jamaica doing work in both community and at the Children's Home. Upon our return, we all got together for a nice meal at our home that was prepared and served by Guss. The main course was stuffed tenderloin and it was delicious. I will definitely use him again and have already given his name out to several of my friends. He has such a warm personality and would fit perfectly in any environment. He has a true passion for cooking and it shows.

    Craig was very knowledgeable and experienced in cooking. He shared a lot of helpful tips for a novice cook, covering a variety of topics and made gourmet meals easy and non-intimidating to someone without a lot of cooking experience.

    Where do I begin? I've had the privilege of calling Chef Bryan my friend for a very long time now. Throughout the many years of tasting his foods, whether it be a simple back yard cookout or a complex dish at Canvas, Bryan's passion for cooking stands out in every plate that he creates. He has introduced my palate to so many new and exciting spices and flavors that I would've never tried otherwise. His knowledge of different types of foods, cultures, and cuisine is mind blowing and it truly emanates in every bite of a dish he has prepared. I consider myself lucky to have tried so many of Chef Bryan's creations and always look forward to doing it again.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    How much do private cooking lessons cost?

    You can take private cooking classes to have fun, to learn a new skill, to improve your health, to bond with your partner, to enjoy a playful first date or to have a unique birthday party experience. Nationally the average cost of private cooking lessons ranges between $100 and $150. Prices can vary, depending on where you live, the type of cooking class you’re taking, the ingredients the chef provides, and the reputation of the chef. Cooking classes with Anthony Bourdain will clearly cost more than classes with a local restaurant owner. The number of people in the class will also affect the cost, with group lessons often priced per person to account for the cost of ingredients. For example, for group lessons, a brunch workshop may cost an average of $70 per person, a steak dinner with sides could cost an average of $80-$85 per person, and a sushi lesson could cost an average of $100 per person. Ingredients play a major role in cost, as the chef will pre-purchase the food you will be working with. Weekday classes will usually cost less than weekend classes.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
