Nikki is an excellent chef - food was delicious. She was on time and was very personable! The young men she brought with her were so nice! I had asked for her to prepare extra homemade croutons for me to have the next day and though she said of course I suspect in the haste to leave she forgot them. ( By the way they were great!) The only comment I would make in using a chef versus my regular caterers is that Nikki and her team planned to leave while we were eating dessert. In doing so I would have been left to clean all those dishes ( 10 seated guests) and wine glasses myself. She said that was the way she always did things. None of my caterers have ever done that -- that is part of what you are paying for ($700+) to enjoy your evening and have no work to do ! Just being hostess is enough getting the house and flowers and table set! Nikki knew we had 50 people arriving post dinner for an after party and needed the dinner dishes all pulled and cleaned - was very disappointed that we had to discuss that at the last minute! I had hired a separate bartender for the glasses to be taken care at the post party. I expected her to not do any of those dishes. I did ask her to place trays of desserts I had prepared on the "cleaned off" dining table when they finished. ( I paid them a handsome tip for doing this) Also - I have never had a caterer use the dishwasher for my dishes - I have always found them hand washed and stacked in kitchen. Nikki's team loaded my dishwashers (2) with the hand painted china and sterling flatware. I should have explained that is not done - my mistake, I just haven't had to before. She is an EXCELLENT CHEF! Services are not as "easy" on the host and her familiarity with things like the china and silver should be discussed before hand. Be very specific about every detail on how you see the evening going - write it up so you both know. We had Sea Bass and It Was Amazing!

Our office hired John to make dinners for us and our families during busy tax season. It has been great! The meals have all been delicious and varied while still being kid friendly. We never get bored with his food. He brings the meals twice a week, and he and his assistant are always on time and very helpful. John is super attentive to our different diet needs/allergies and welcomes suggestions. The food looks and tastes fresh and is very health conscious. Exactly what we asked for. We have worked with other chefs in the past and none have been as wonderful as John. Our whole office highly recommends him.

Sabrina was amazing! I decided to have a surprise dinner and cocktail party for my boyfriends 30th. She helped me make an amazing menu selection for the dinner and cocktail. She even went as far as helping create 2 specialty cocktails. She was beyond professional and so was her assistant Kevin. They made me feel at ease with the planning of the surprise. She was very accommodating as well. The food was delicious! The salad she created with pecans, cranberries, blue cheese, and a delicious dressing was amazing. The steak was very juicy and tender and the sides (mashed potatoes with a special gravy and asparagus w/lemon sauce) were great additions. The dessert, peach cobbler and ice cream, was to die for! I took the leftovers of that for the next day and it was just as good as it was that night. She had the table set beautifully. I am definitely using Sabrina for all my events in the future (bridal shower, birthdays, etc.). My boyfriend was so happy and he will never forget his 30th. He is still smiling and talking about it.

Marcus and Devon did a fantastic job. We had a post game hot meal. The game was delayed due to weather so the meal was served 90 minutes later than expected. It was all still fresh and delicious. I highly recommend Pas de Deux. Talented chefs and service with a smile.

This was my first experience using caterer and I was amazed. Chef Nefi was so responsive and added great ideas to the food items. Everyone raved about the mac and cheese bites! The presentation was great-everything looked fresh and appetizing. People wanted to know who did the catering. I could have used even more cards. Thank you for making my birthday so easy and tasty.

Chef Joseph catered my company Christmas dinner. It was for seven persons in my home. I provided all the table setting, etc. Joseph was very easy to communicate with and worked with me to develop menu choices. In the end, my guests could choose between Prime Rib and Stuffed Chicken Breast Florentine. Sides were Garlic Mashed Potatoes and Green Beans Almondine. Everything was delicious. Joseph arrived when he said he would and he plated and served the meal, then cleaned up. It was a very relaxing evening to have it all taken care of and be able to enjoy my guests and not worry about serving and cleaning up. There were just a few minor issues - the important thing is to clearly communicate so that you are both on the same page and he knows your expectations.

I hired PCF Creations for two 1-month periods to prepare Whole30 compliant meals for my wife and me. Chef Josue came like clockwork every Monday to prepare meals for the entire week. He was very clean, friendly, and gentle. His cooking is precise; flavors are gently pronounced and create harmony with subtones and nuances. I am pretty good in the kitchen myself so I needed this execution to be impressive, despite the somewhat limited ingredients allowed (again, whole30 program, which we also narrowed down a lot based on our likings). Chef Josue was very clean and fast. He also made the grocery shopping for us in a very effective way. I would recommend his services to anyone looking to improve diet or simply for a celebration meal. Very happy.

I hired Chef Dee to teach me how to cook like the pros. She is punctual and professional. She came with her own kitchen tools and spices for me to try and even gave me some to keep. She also gave me an Apron to keep as well. A class act with much skills in the kitchen. I highly recommend her for all of your events and instructional needs. Good luck trying to book her on the weekends because I just did for the next 8 weeks.

We had an opportunity to sample food made by Chef Krishna of local Green Eats! Not only did we love the food, but we loved what her and her company is all about!!! Chef Krishna started local Green Eats in 2009. It encompasses her love for cooking, along with her goal to eliminate the stress of cooking for her clients. local Green Eats is a local and independent catering and personal chef company serving the Greater Atlanta area. They provide food that tastes good and is also good for you! They accommodate any special requests including vegetarian and/or organic meals and much more. Our first phone consultation consisted of Chef Krishna asking us questions about our food preferences to get a feel of what we were looking for and to personalize the menu based on our needs. Prices are not on her site because everything is completely personalized for our family. She works with everyone's budget!!! The initial consultation is free so there is nothing to lose! We had the honor of sampling three delicious dishes that Chef Krishna prepared for us right in our kitchen! All three dishes had amazing flavor and were to die for!!! Thanks again Chef Krishna for following your dreams and cooking for us regularly!

Excellent presentation of his craft; the " Tapas Tasting" event was very professional and the food was quite tasteful and heart healthy; he is an excellent cook; I'm sorry I did not think to photograph the entire presentation (see beef and pork entrée presentations below). Chef Anthony James put his best foot forward to earn our business; we were quite at ease with his hospitality and left stuffed. Thanks Chef Anthony James of Distinguished Palate for an afternoon well worth the trip. Yes, of course, we've hired him!! Excellent experience!!!
