From the first phone conversation with Mike Watson I knew our evening was going to be great. He was very professional but so easy to work with. When the night came both Mike & Derek showed up with tools in hand and ready to entertain. Our friends were very impressed as were my husband and I. Mike & Derek were fun and invited us to test taste what they were preparing. We all discussed restaurants and downtown Chicago. Theyre background experience is just so off the charts. Who wouldn't want these two in their home cooking for them. Price was very reasonable and the food was outstanding. Good time was had by all and I'd definitely hire them again. Thanks Mike & Derek for making my lifetime wish such an enjoyable one. Patti Limbach

My experience with Chef Aram was A+++. Chef Aram did a cooking demonstration and cooked dinner for a small group for my wife's birthday. The food was fantastic and the cooking demonstration was a huge hit with my wife and her family. We will definitely be using him again!!!

Incredible chef & instructor/teacher! This was a surprise gift... I requested a higher end private chef dinner for my wife for a special occasion .... My wife is a scratch cook... When chef found out that my wife was a scratch cook and woukd be interested observing; he turned the personal chef experience into a cooking class that blew us both away! You have no idea how a true high end chef thinks & leverages their tools of the trade.... It is/was a learning experience my wife and I will ever forget... Chef is also very sharing regarding recipes and the like... And food is extraordinarily delicious for both of us; even though chef had to customize my dish due to a food allergy... I know that chef can cater; and will probably blow your guests away on any budget... And that using him for a private party of 2 with a "lobster" theme was expensive; BUT THE INTANGIBLES OF LEARNING TO COOK AND DINE AUTHENTIC GOURMET FOOD; MAKE THE EXPERIENCE PRICELESS! Chef is the best gift you can give your loved one(s) Hiring this Chef rivals any upscale restaurants' "chefs table" experience! Don't worry about your kitchen; he brings all the pots pans and the like.... If you have the means, you should put chef on your "bucket list" I will hire him again, wife's birthday coming up...

Chef Frank was very professional and quick to respond to all queries. He was flexible in scheduling and location and considerate given that we were in the middle of moving houses. The lesson was a birthday present for my 9 year old daughter and he made it an event to remember. I would highly recommend Chef Frank for cooking/baking lessons.

Sandra has cooked for me twice and I can tell you, this woman knows her craft well! I am impressed by each opportunity I have had to taste her food. My first meal was a delicious collection of delectable ham, smoked turkey collard greens, corn bread, mac and cheese. I was in heaven. The ham was perfectly balanced (not overly salty), the collard greens had the right touch of smokey goodness with delightful chunks of turnkey meat and the mac and cheese...wow! Nice crispy baked goodness with smooth rich and creamy cheese goodness. The corn bread was the topper. I had to share with a friend so they could taste but then immediately thought, "I'll have to get more!" The second meal was a delicious spaghetti dish with garlic bread and a delicious salad. Wow again! The meat was in generous form here - a mix of quality ground beef and Italian sausage. I was in heaven! The sauce was delightfully balanced- flavorful and zesty but again, not salty! The garlic bread! I had to ask her how she made it because it was infused with flavor. Simply but delectable! The salad was not your lettuce and a few veggies affair. It was kale-based with chunks of apple, tomato, onion and many other favorites of mine. Truly, a dish that could be so bland and boring turned out to be another delight. Sandra asked me what I liked prior to cooking and did she deliver. Her use of spices is amazing. I keep going back to balanced and it is true. The flavor profile was amazingly great! I highly recommend Sandra. Not only does she deliver on the promise of making tasty food from the heart, she is a great teacher (she explained to me how to make the garlic bread her way) and she's a quality person. A delight on all fronts!

I’m a lawyer finishing my MBA, planning my wedding and trying to kickstart my weight loss. I wasn’t sure where to start, but Mark gave me the step by step support I needed. In two weeks, I lost 7 pounds with a combination of his coaching, nutrition, and meal prep services. I'm so glad I found him - Thanks Mark!

Taryn simply makes some of the best food I have ever eaten. Working with Oprah Winfrey for 10 years I’ve gotten to sample many great chef’s cooking and Taryn is at the top of that list. Her food just makes you happy!
