    The chef was very good. Food was not hot.
    Megan A. May 23, 2017

    Mr. James, We appreciate your review. I just wanted to clarify that I did tell all 3 tables to please eat as the food was set. The facility not having heat lamps was not set up for a plated meal. I wish I had known this last night, as you had said everything was great. I hope you have a great evening and thank you for your review. Creative Cuisine LLC.

    Don't look any further, Creative Cuisine is the best! We hired Chef Megan for a charity dinner of 75 people in Aiken. The experience was fantastic! Chef Megan was amazing and very professional. She answered all our questions and concerns quickly via conference calls or email. Chef Megan went above and beyond helping us make our event a huge success. When Megan and her staff arrived on event day she walked us through all the details of the night again to make sure we were still okay with timing, etc. This is when we realized we forgot to rent dessert spoons! One would think this would be a nightmare for the Chef, nope not Megan. She immediately said "Don't worry about it. We will take care of it." and sent one of her staff out to buy dessert spoons. The food was delicious and we were so impressed with the professionalism and friendliness of the staff. Chef Megan worked with us to keep costs down and were happy to adjust the menu to fit our budget. Their clean-up was perfection and they did not leave a trace behind. Creative Cuisine exceeded our expectations and we will definitely use them again in the future!

    My parents are much older now, and what better gift than a personal chef in their home to cook an outstanding, healthy meal. Chef Megan was punctual, a good conversationalist, and an excellent chef. She cooked a delicious meal for my parents, and some visiting aunts and uncles from out of time. Would highly recommend for a unique experience, or the person(s) who just seem to have everything and are difficult to shop for.

    Chef Megan is not only a delightful personality, she is a patient and supportive and amazing help. Although I started planning very late, Chef Megan stood with me and offered amazing advice at a time when things seemed to fall apart. You may start hiring a Chef, but you will end up having a friend. Awesome Person :)

    Megan Cooked a full course meal for me my husband and daughter, I asked her to add a few things to what she was making and she did that plus more. I also was doing it as a surprise to my husband and Megan, along with her assistant did EVERYTHING PERFECT. By the time we got back to the house everything was set and we only waited 7min before eating, They poured the wine, and took care of everything (cleaning, wiping down the kitchen, putting leftover's in containers and fridge) It was like there weren't even in the house. The didn't bother us, they didn't speak loud, they didn't bang around in the kitchen.... it was if we were in a restaurant. If I had extra cash on my at the time I would have tipped more than I did. Megan also did another dinner for me and my husband to go. She prepared the entire meal then wrote the reheating instructions on every dish so I could reheat it once I got home, and again it was perfect. To be quite honest I've never eaten a meal where I didn't add salt or some kind of seasoning to it....EXCEPT MEGAN'S, I was more stunned that NO extra season/butter nothing needed to be added to the meal. I was told about her thru a co-worker and everytime I get the change I pass it along to anyone who will listen. I never knew you could hire a personal chef to come to you home and perform all Megan did. My husband was so surprised and we were able to enjoy all the food and drinks and at the end relax in the comfort of our home. It was extremely cost effective. This was an all new experience for me, my husband and daughter and I was so glad to have had Megan for the Job.

    Chef Megan prepared and served heavy hor dourves for in excess of 150 guests. The food was spectacular, well presented, and perfectly balanced in taste and freshness. Chef Megans team worked seamlessly to serve guests, and did so with absolute stealth. I guess the best way to describe the experience is Chef Megan and her team did what they love for people who LOVED what they did! If anyone is planning a corporate event with 20 to 250 guests and wants farm to table food from a chef who is absolutely committed to excellence, Chef Megan is the one. For a reference you may call me at 706-840-5900 Greg

    Creative Cuisine Catered my mothers Birthday Party. It was a luncheon - which included chicken Salad cuisants, chicken wraps, potato salad, anti pasta and fruit trays, Swedish meatballs, and cucumber and tomato salad. It was all beautifully plated, and delicious. All of our guests thoroughly enjoyed the food. Chef Meghan was extremely easy to communicate and work with. She even helped me with a cake that was bought from a local bakery that was falling apart. I would call her first if another catering event comes up. A totally well executed experience all around.

Her energy and enthusiasm for cooking with simple, healthy ingredients is contagious. I highly recommend using Chef Megan/Creative Cuisine for a special event or other culinary need.

    From the moment Megan as were my organizations request for a caterer on Thumbtack we could tell she was a person we would want to work. This thought was proven over the weeks before our holiday party. Megan always responded to any questions or requests promptly and worked to get us everything we needed within our budget. Even with last minute add in at our event she came through for us. We will definitely be contacting creative cuisine for our future events!

    We had a very small wedding at the Savannah Rapids Pavilion and had a custom menu of southern comfort food; pulled pork, Mac N Cheese, chicken bacon ranch pinwheels, bacon green beans, etc. EVERYTHING was amazing and fresh. The staff was readily available and eager to help and answer any questions we had. Megan helped make our night extra special, and we are impressed by her professionalism AND how personal she was with us. Thank you, Megan! And we will definitely call you again for all of our catering needs. :)

    Everything about working with Megan was amazing. What we asked of Megan: Our friend was home on bed rest across the country--my friends and I got together and tasked Megan with making and delivering lunch and supper for our friend and her two children for a week. Working with Megan was a breeze. She was responsive and made herself available by email, phone, and text. She was even willing to break the news to our friend when she phoned to get details about food preferences and to set up a time for delivery. In addition to being responsive and responsible, our friend's reports and photos of the meals Megan made confirm that she is an incredible cook. Instead of dictating any kind of specific meal, our friend had Megan cook whatever she was inspired that day. Daily posts of fresh, locally sourced meals that were devoured by her family left us all a little bit jealous that we weren't on bed rest, too. I couldn't say enough good things about Megan. Definitely recommend her and would happily employ her talents again. Love, love, loved working with her, and it sounds like my friend is looking forward to more of Megan's creations down the road once she's recovered, too.
