Everything was spot on! The experience was excellent from start to finish. Chef Bree was professional yet very personal. Food was fabulous and the service exceptional. Will be using her again for my next special event!

My husband and I decided to end 2016 off with something memorable. A personal chef to prepare a meal for us and our friends before a night on the town to ring in 2017. Chef Bree prepared the best New Years Eve steak dinner we could have ever ask for. Prior to the night we had several phone calls to discuss what we were looking for and our vision for the evening. She was truly a pleasure to work with and have in our home. Her food truly speaks for itself. Days after our friends are still raving over the experience and the delicious 4-course meal that was prepared. We highly recommend Chef Bree and Good Fork Catering. My husband and I cannot wait for the opportunity to work with Chef Bree again.

My husband and I recently celebrated our "50th" wedding anniversary. Chef Bree (Sabrina) not only prepared a delicious meal worthy of 5-stars, but she also provided impeccable service. Her added personal touch definitely made this special occasion even more memorable for both my husband and myself, as well as for the family members, who joined us. Thank you so much, Sabrina, and hope to see you again!
