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

Food was very tasty. My guests and I enjoyed the shrimp ceviche the most!! Just wish scallops were grilled longer. Also, the rice in the paella could have been cooked longer. Tamara kept the kitchen clean during prep/cooking. She was very nice and professional.

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.

It was a party at home for a friend with a group of friends. Cafe Creole Catering laid out an upscale but inviting presentation. There was attention to detail and each dish was delicious. You could taste the love of cooking. I recommend Chef Kevin and would have him do another event.

Chef Gretch cooked for my family on many occasions, and her work was amazing! It was such a treat to have someone else do the cooking and planning, even when our little vegan was visiting! And she was able to vary and change the menu to use less cheese, less dairy, etc. for the other picky people in our family. She was always on time, and her prices were so much less than trying to do it myself! I'll definitely have her cook for us again!

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!

On multiple occasions, we had Chef Ben into our home to cook for private dinner parties. He was very prompt and was sure to stay until cleanup was done. Ben interacted with our guests, and was sure to make everyone feel comfortable. From planning the menu to the presentation of the meal - everything was well done. The taste of the food was spectacular. We can't wait to have Chef Ben back to cook for us!

About

We are an eclectic start-up group based in the Chicago area. Our team is led by chefs, computer geeks, health nuts, design guru’s, business icons, and more—we span the states from Chicago to NYC, and call everything from Chicago to Mexico to India our home. Our callings in life include great food, slow food, balanced lifestyles, the environment and sustainability, good music, good wine, and (for some of us) great computer games. Among other things, we are each busy working professionals—some of us with kids—some of us finishing or starting degrees in competitive fields. Because of our ambitions we all understand the importance and difficulty of having excellent, well-balanced meals. Our goal is to revolutionize the act of eating in: throw out preservative-filled frozen meals, ditch your bag of microwave popcorn. By changing your way, you help us in our mission to support local, ethical farming practices while maintaining conscious behavior toward our environment and the earth-- and all that in an effort to deliver the best meals around right to your door.

Our chef was trained at Le Cordon Bleu, and finished in Sorrento, Italy. With over 25 years of experience, Chef is able to handle most any request, and larger parties requiring more thought and planning for equipment and staff. Our clients seem to enjoy his quirky sense of humor, and the flavor combo he produces.
