My experience with Gotta Have It was exceptional from beginning to end. Chef Marra gave me exactly what I asked for, which was Panamanian cuisine. The food was great and my guests were impressed. The staff provided for service were professional and on point. Chef Marra worked with me on every level during this process. I would definitely work with this catering company again and I also recommend them to anyone.
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!
We hired John to cater our wedding in May 2017. Upon initial inquiry John had the most impressive menu items vs other caterers and had a competitive price for our crowd of ~130. My husband and I enjoyed the food as did the guests. One guest comment that sticks out to me was from a very discerning foodie and chef himself. He praised the food and I can't think of a better compliment! John was fantastic and I would hire him again in a minute. I encourage you to do the same for your event.
Clearly the absolute best level of professionalism I’ve EVER experienced with any caterer or personal Chef. She’s the person I’d trust everyday in my home and with my stomach! So glad real chefs with real passion like this still exist!
I surprised my wife on her 40th B-Day with a private chef to cook dinner for the family. Kelsey was GREAT, she was warm, kind and professional every step of the way. The food was fantastic too. We started with a cheese and charcuterie plate, and then a duck salad with organic greens, both were delicious.The main course was halibut with a citrus sauce and asparagus, it was perfectly cooked. The dessert was her signature creme brulee and it was outstanding. I'd highly recommend Kelsey to anyone needing a private chef for a special occasion.
Our meal was fantastic! The entire party raved how wonderful the meal looked, smelled and tasted. So you're aware delicious is an understatement! Service was outstanding and Allison was more delightful than the meal. Menu items were fresh, warm and presented beautifully! Give Ali's Personal Chef service a chance, I guarantee you will not be disappointed.
Food and value are top notch. The food is so delicious. Chef Hull spends time with you and lets you watch his skills. Then he serves up an amazing three course dinner that can't be compared to any restaurant. He even cleans everything up.
My company had their annual health fair and we hired Chef Iyea to do the cooking demonstrations. She was so helpful through out the menu planning process and very delightful to work with. Our staff loved her energy and recipes. I would highly recommend her!
Details: I hired Chef Alan recently for a personal cooking lesson at my home and my husband and I enjoyed the experience very much. Chef Alan took plenty of time beforehand to hear what I wanted to learn and even met me at a nearby Kroger to help select the shopping items. The menu items we cooked were seriously delicious! Menu: We made boneless pork piccata and mashed potatoes. Both items turned out wonderful- excellent flavor and presentation. Overall experience: Chef Alan was happy to share his knowledge with us and answered general questions about cooking and gave us equipment tips. He even emailed us the ingredients and recipe afterwards so I have it on file to make again and again. I would recommend taking a personal cooking class to anyone who has a difficult time following recipes and for anyone who is tired of throwing away food and countless meals you’ve taken time to prepare. Learning how to cook from a personal chef like Chef Alan will help save you so much time and money in the end it’s well worth it. I will absolutely hire Chef Alan again for many more cooking lessons. Thank you again for a great experience and dinner.
I have two words to say.. "Impeccable Service!" In-Joy catering not only have the best service, but they also serve amazing food!! The Chef is one to admire due to her personality & beautiful smile..she works with her clients and will do everything she can to make sure she's giving 110%. I would definitely hire for any event I host. 😊
Chef Trey was awesome! The food was absolutely delicious. Chef Trey was fun and engaging. We would definitely hire him again!
Three words--- hire Chef Heather! I went online to find a chef to come to our home and cater a baby shower for my daughter. After reading reviews and looking at the websites of the candidates I found, I decided to contact Chef Heather. She was quick to respond and asked all the right questions about the event and what I was picturing the day to be like. An enjoyable experience from the first interaction I had with her. After several wonderful emails and phone conversations, and an exchange of information and menus, we met at our house and I knew immediately I had found the right person. Chef Heather listened to all of my requests, and then the ideas, menu options, and creativity just started flowing from her! She is a true professional at her craft, incredibly accommodating, and made it possible for us to really enjoy the day. All 16 guests raved about the food and the cooking demo. My only regret is that Chef Heather was in the kitchen instead of sitting down with us to eat! Everyone loved getting to know her and learning from her. I will definitely call her again for any chef/catering need I have, and I would highly recommend you do to!
Chef Pavla is fantastic. My wedding cake was magical and delicious. She was even able to print a photo on sugar.
I thoroughly enjoyed working with The East-West Chef! The food was superb, and is of the highest quality and caliber. Delicious! In my extensive experience with catering companies as a nonprofit executive, I experienced nothing but professionalism, tact, expedience and timeliness. I would highly recommend!
My experience with Chef Dee was far beyond Amazing. She is very passionate about her work and she is kind and very thoughtful. I had a blast in my cooking lesson will definitely book her again. Don't miss out of Chef Deee, she is the Best!
I have known and worked with Jan for years. She is an amazing chef. She is innovative and creative with her dishes. She is always looking for new ways to improve her skills. I love her food.
Chef Valeri has been making delicious meals for me and my family for the last five years. I first hired her to cater a business event and then immediately hired her to provide personal chef services. Her food is delicious and her customer service is outstanding. Her attention to detail and her knowledge of food preparation and specialized diets is amazing. Whenever I ask her what makes a particular dish taste so good she says, "there is love in there" and there truly is. Hire her! You won't regret it!
I had the best experience with LaCreme!! Chef Shawnna prepared a tasteful meal for my birthday event. She was clean, organized & professional. I received excellent customer service & I would recommend LaCreme any day! 🤗
Professional and detailed oriented. I shared a picture of what I was wanting(theme,design) & with no hesitation Lesley welcomed the challenge & I couldn't be happier. She's truly is the best Chef/Baker I'll be using her for all my events from now on👍
